Currently, The Villas at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa are the only Disney Vacation Club option at Disneyland Resort. That’s all about to change, though, with the addition of a brand new DVC tower at Disneyland Hotel.
A permit filed in December 2019 gave us some insight into what this new California Disney Vacation Club property has in store. It indicated that the new Disney resort tower will have “393 units” and a dining establishment. It now appears, however, that the new DLR resort hotel will have 350 rooms.
The three existing Disneyland Hotel towers have five eateries between them, including Steakhouse 55, Goofy’s Kitchen, and Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar, which enjoys something of a cult following. There has been no word yet on what type of restaurant the new Disney Vacation Club property will have onsite.
Now, a new demolition and construction permit has been posted at the site of the Disneyland Hotel DVC tower addition! This is exciting news that shows the project is moving forward on some level, despite the Disney theme parks closure and construction suspension.
The new permit gives permission for “Demolition of existing back-of-house maintenance facilities, a fitness center, event lawn, and a guest laundry facility, and construction of a new 280,000-square foot, twelve-story, vacation ownership resort.”
The project name is officially “Timeshare Project at Disneyland Hotel” and the permit was obtained by the Spectrum Development Group.
Disney’s artist rendering of the new Disneyland Hotel DVC tower shows stunning balconies and a sleek overall aesthetic that will fit right in with the mid-century vibe of Walt Disney’s original Disneyland onsite property.
The as-yet unnamed Disney Vacation Club property is likely to follow the lead of the other Disneyland Hotel towers, all named after Disneyland Park areas: Adventure Tower, Fantasy Tower, and Frontier Tower.
