Disneyland is opening its DVC Villas in time for the holidays this year, and we are so excited!

For stays on December 6th and beyond, you can book your DVC star at Disney’s Grand California Hotel & Spa. Even though Disneyland is currently closed, you can still visit Downtown Disney, and enjoy Buena Vista Street which has resumes dining and shopping for guests.

You can read all the details on the official Disney website. You may not be able to go to the Spa during your stay, but if you have been waiting for a Disneyland vacation and don’t mind a more quiet vacation this could be the perfect time for your visit.

Here is the official announcement:

Disney also had this to say about the reopening, reminding Guests that this is for DVC members only at this time.

Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa will once again welcome Members home beginning December 6. During this initial phase, the Disney Vacation Club Villas at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa will be open only for Members. The rest of Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa will remain closed. As we work towards reopening, promoting health and safety for our Guests and Cast Members is a top priority. Our gradual, phased approach to reopening considers the guidance of government and local health authorities, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in addition to the U.S. Travel Association and the Disney team of health professionals. Additional information on what to expect at The Villas during your stay will be shared soon.

The Disneyland Hotel, Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel and Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa remain closed and will reopen at a later date. Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park remain closed and will reopen at a later date, pending state and local government approvals. The Downtown Disney District is now open. Learn more about the phased reopening of the Downtown Disney District.

Upon reopening, certain parks, hotels, restaurants, attractions, experiences and other offerings will be modified or unavailable, will have limited capacity and will be subject to limited availability or even closure, and park admission and offerings are not guaranteed.

Note that even though the Grand Californian is opening in time for the holiday season, Disney has not shared whether or not the hotel will be decorated for Christmas. We know that none of the Disney World hotels will showcase gingerbread displays, so we can assume that the same can be said about Grand Californian.

This is a giant step in the right direction toward resuming operations at Disneyland. We cannot wait to see what Disneyland will be able to reopen next!
