Our trip is 12/1-12/8 and we got the credit. You may want to check your e-mail spam folder - that's where mine was.

Just got off the phone with Member Services. I was told the credit is for 2 nights stay for all trips scheduled between 9/10 and 12/22. We have 170 points coming back to us, which makes me so happy!

I asked about the banking deadline, when we would see the credit, etc. DVC indicated we can book straight through DVCmemberservices if you want to immediately use those "to be returned" points for another vacation; otherwise, our accounts will be credited shortly after our stay. DVC will be waiving the banking deadline on those points.

It's funny they said the points would be returned AFTER the stay. The e-mail says they will be credited BEFORE you check-in.

Aloha,

As crews embark on an exciting expansion project at Aulani (visit DVCMember.com for updates as new details emerge), we wanted to take this opportunity to assure you that the Resort's most popular features and amenities, including the restaurants, Waikolohe Valley pools/water fun area, the spectacular beach, the tranquil Laniwai Spa and more, will all be available to Members and Guests throughout the expansion process.

While project managers are carefully scheduling work to minimize its impact on your stay, you may see and hear work in progress. To thank you for your understanding, based on your current reservation, you will receive a credit of your Vacation Points for two nights of your upcoming stay. Essentially, two nights of your upcoming accommodation will come at no charge to you. This credit will be applied to your account automatically prior to your check in, and no further action is required on your part.

We sincerely appreciate your understanding as we embark on this exciting expansion of our oceanfront paradise, and we look forward to welcoming you "home" to Aulani soon!

Mahalo,

Disney Vacation Club Member Services

I wonder why disney decided to give out 2 nights credit but only up till 12/22. The expansion is not suppose to be completed until June 2013. Our family will be at Aulani the first week of February 2013. Hopefully that means most of the inconvenient stuff will be completed byt then.

Thanks for reporting this.

I spend much of the winter in Florida, and just booked another week at DVC in January that I had planned on staying offsite. Applied my 92 refunded points to that reservation.

They manually refunded the points, then used them for the new reservation.
Of course they warned that if I made any changes to my Aulani reseration, they would have to adjust my points. (ie if I canceled my Aulani reservation, or shortened it to less than 5 days.)

does that mean the expansion work doesn't start until 09/10? I'll be there from 09/03-09/08.

score?

We'll be in Aulani 9/8 - 9/14, and they gave us 92 points back and banked them into our next use year: our deadline had passed. A week stay for 160 points isn't too bad!

Hopefully the construction won't be too disruptive.

So I wonder what is happening with any last minute point bookings? You book at the full points and then get back whatever is appropriate based on how long you're staying?

I'm staying in a 2 bedroom pool view 12/14-12/21 and have not gotten anything about points back. Just the email I got 7/26 talking about the expansion and potential disruption. I'd be thrilled with 2 nights back, myself! Maybe I should call Member Services and ask.

Glad I read this thread. I got the letter but i don't believe I got the email. I will give them a call today. Thanks everyone for info.

Now I am really bummed though as I am guessing this is going to be pretty distruptive if they are already offereing credits.

Oh well it's still Hawaii

Wow...I'm really bummed. We are heading to Aulani for 8 days over Thanksgiving and I am not happy with the construction going on....even worse is that I am renting points, so I paid for the full 8 nights worth of points, yet the dvc owner is getting a credit of two nights for the inconvenience that I am going to have during the trip...double bummer.

Did you talk to the person you are renting from and/or do you have a rental agreement? I am renting from the nicest person, and she is refunding my payment for the 120 points she is getting back. She is awesome, and I rented from her through the message board here.
