Default how many logins per membership?

How many logins to dvcmember can each membership have? Is it just one, or can both owners have a login to access the same membership?

I think it is only one...anyone know?

Both owners can have one, but I have read here it can mess things up. To make it easy we have just the one

Both of us have our own DVC accounts and have had zero issues because of it.

Each person on the membership (including associate members) has a unique Club ID assigned to them. That Club ID is used to establish each person their own on-line account.

Correct, log in is for each member/club ID, not membership. You can have multiple Club ID depend upon your deed. You can consolidate log in into ONE with new changes.

Just saying what others have shared here. Nothing else. Truly we have no need for 2 log ins. I take care of it all and if my DH needs to get in he can log in under me as well.

Just curious, is there really a need for each to have their own? Never really thought about it until today

The benefit of having multiple is if you both research or manage pieces of your vacations. Since it uses the same login as MDE, if you have only one account hooked up to DVC, the other person would have to log in and out of two different accounts to make any changes. Not necessarily a big deal, but can be annoying. If you manage all of your reservations for both people (FP,Dining,DVC) from one account, then it might not matter at all.

If you are on different machines or even browsers this isn't an issue. You can be logged in on the same machine even if one is in Chrome and the other IE/Edge.

edit: I just realized I misread what you were saying. We only have one MDE account after the fiasco of merging two after being forced to change (mentioned in a post below). It's easier to keep one for everything. My husband doesn't do a darn thing for the trips though so he doens't need an account for MDE.

People have had issues when they had different logins for different Disney websites but I don't recall reports of issues because of multiple owners each having their own login to the DVC member website. Actually when it comes to member IDs people have had issues because they didn't each have their own. A single login will only pull up the ID of the person it is under and in some cases MS refused to send out missing cards if the owner didn't have their own login so they could request it.

As mentioned, every owner gets their own login.

I believe people have issues no matter how you do it. I could have misread but I thought I have read times where two log ins to any one account was causing issues. But again only going off of what I thought I read and afmittedly it was years ago. I have not had an issue getting a card sent to my husband under my account though. I've only had to do it once and did it via chat but it was not a problem at all.

We do just keep to one account for everything. I had issues with Disney IT screwing things up when they made the usernames from DVC to my regular Disney account match. Even a year and a half ago they had issues where certain things were tied to my old, now defunct account and had to be dug around and found.

After all that, we decided one per family was enough. But I do appreciate hearing what others have to say. Obviously this has strayed from the original topic (which the answer is yes) but it's nice to hear what others have experienced.
