A permit for a proposed Disney Vacation Club Resort has been filed with the city of Anaheim, California, as Disneyland takes the next steps in preparing to build a new DVC resort as part of the Disneyland Hotel.
Inside the Magic has followed the story of the new property as it has developed over recent months, and the new DVC timeshare tower is projected to open sometime in 2023. The new tower will stand 12 stories high, and the proposal for the new property includes 280,000 square feet. The proposed structure will be set on two acres of land next to the Disneyland Hotel and the project will include more than 300 on-site parking spaces within a lot that is already on site.
If the resort is built and if plans stay relatively close to the ones that are currently part of the proposal, the new Disney Vacation Club property will boast 350 guest rooms, 271 large studios, 38 two-person studios, 20 two-bedroom suites and 19 one-bedroom suites. There will also be two Grand Villas on the property.
The two-person studios at the new resort are said to be closely similar to those at Walt Disney World’s new Riviera Resort, which have 255 square feet of space and include a queen-sized bed within a wall unit, a full-size bathroom, a sofa, a desk, and a balcony.
With the exception of a small outdoor pool bar, the new DVC resort property at Disneyland includes no plans for new food, meeting, retail or banquet facilities. Plans do, however, include a spa shaped like the mouse who started it all, and the spa will be part of a new pool area. Plans also call for Vacation Club guests who visit the new property to use the Disneyland Hotel for arrivals, check-ins and for valet parking.
If you are already a DVC member, note that you can currently book a stay at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa, the only DVC resort currently at Disneyland. But also get excited for the all-new DVC tower coming in the few years, which will bring more opportunities for DVC owners wanting to visit the original Disney Park, Disneyland.
