The Villas at Disneyland Hotel

The Villas at Disneyland Hotel are the newest addition to the Disney Vacation Club family, and the second Disney Vacation Club property at the Disneyland Resort after The Villas at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa.

The 12-story tower, currently under construction, will have 340 accommodations, including duo studios, deluxe studios, one- and two-bedroom villas, and three-bedroom grand villas. Each room is themed to a different Walt Disney Animation Studios film, from “Sleeping Beauty” to “The Princess and the Frog.” Imagineers drew inspiration from sketches, concept art, story cels, and color maps.

video released in March shows renderings of the new villas, which include “at-home comforts” consisting of amenities for guests to do their own laundry, cook food in a real kitchen, and enjoy a little extra private space for their family during their trip.

Room types include the Duo Studio, Deluxe Studio, 1-Bedroom Villa, 2-Bedroom Villa, 3-Bedroom Grand Villa, and Garden Room.

The new villas open to guests on September 25, 2023, and reservations are already available now.
