Disney Vacation Club is celebrating the grand opening of The Villas at Disneyland Hotel, the 16th Disney Vacation Club resort, inspired by the creative magic of Walt Disney Animation Studios.

This historic resort, which is the first new Disney Vacation Club resort on the west coast in over ten years, is a great new option for Members and guests to enjoy when visiting the iconic Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California.  

The all-new tower features 344 thoughtfully themed guest rooms designed to immerse guests in the worlds of classic Disney stories while offering modern, just-like-home amenities only steps away from the Disneyland Resort theme parks.

The stunning, 12-story tower is the 16th Disney Vacation Club property and the first dedicated Disney Vacation Club property at Disneyland Resort since the The Villas at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa opened in 2009.  The property also marks the first new tower at the award-winning Disneyland Hotel since 1979.

The Villas at Disneyland Hotel features a variety of themed accommodations for families large and small including duo studios, deluxe studios, one- and two-bedroom villas and multi-level grand villas. Each room celebrates the creativity of Disney films including “The Jungle Book,” “Sleeping Beauty,” “The Princess and the Frog,” “Fantasia” and more.

Spacious deluxe studios in The Villas at Disneyland Hotel at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, Calif. sleep up to four guests, and include a kitchenette, a split bathroom, and two queen-sized beds—one of which folds into the wall to reveal a couch. Each room was inspired by either “Sleeping Beauty” or “The Princess and the Frog”, and features regal theming throughout. (Christian Thompson/Disneyland Resort)

Immersive Disney Storytelling: Step Inside The Villas at Disneyland Hotel

When entering the lobby, members and guests are greeted by a mural created exclusively for this property by beloved Disney Animation artist Lorelay Bové. Bové is known for her visual development work on Walt Disney Animation Studios films such as “The Princess and the Frog” and “Encanto.”

Walt Disney Imagineers have taken inspiration from the animators’ storytelling process to create distinctive accommodations that celebrate the magic of creativity. From color palettes based on animation stills to concept art, guests are instantly immersed in the storytelling process.

Perfect for two guests, the newly imagined duo studios are inspired by “The Jungle Book” featuring a split bathroom with themed tile accents and a queen-size bed that conveniently tucks into the wall to reveal a sofa when not in use. With enough space for up to four guests, the deluxe studios celebrate the timeless tales of “Sleeping Beauty” or “The Princess and the Frog” and feature a kitchenette, split bathroom and two queen-size beds to sleep up to four guests.

One- and two-bedroom villas offer roomier accommodations for larger families, sleeping up to five and nine guests, respectively. The villas include a full-size kitchen and living areas with comfortable sofa seating that can be easily pulled down to reveal a queen-size bed, complete with a story-themed mural above inspired by “The Princess and the Frog” or “Fantasia.” The comfort continues into the main bedroom, which includes a spacious en-suite bathroom featuring double vanities, a soaking tub with a themed mosaic-style tile mural and a spa-like shower.

The three-bedroom grand villas feature multi-level accommodations for up to 12 guests. On the first floor, families can enjoy a full-size kitchen, large dining area and a double-sided fireplace connecting the living area to a private outdoor balcony. The first floor is also home to the primary suite inspired by “Bambi.” Guests will discover more magic as they venture up a spiral staircase to discover a full-size washer and dryer and two themed bedrooms. One bedroom is inspired by “Frozen” and one by “Moana,” each with two queen-size beds and en-suite bathrooms.

Making Magical Memories: Fun Activities for the Whole Family

The brand-new Palette Pool area offers an inviting oasis perfect for relaxation and play. Guests can unwind in the crystal-clear, palette-shaped swimming pool or enjoy refreshing snacks and drinks at the Palm Breeze Bar (opening later this season).

This delightful outdoor space boasts decor inspired by the distinctive artistry of Disney Legend Mary Blair. Little ones can cool off at the whimsical “Steamboat Willie” splash pad inspired by the iconic short film. Kids can star in their own story by joining the iconic Mickey Mouse at the helm of the boat brought to life with waterfalls, fountains and misty fog effects.

Disney Vacation Club members and guests staying at the Disneyland Hotel can enjoy these new amenities and current hotel offerings including restaurants, lounges, shops and swimming pools. Guests can also take advantage of the tower’s ideal location just steps away from the excitement of Disneyland Park, Disney California Adventure Park and the Downtown Disney District.
