Disney Vacation Club Villas at Disneyland Hotel – Opening & Sale DATES, Prices, Concept Art
Disney has shared new details about the new Disney Vacation Club Villas at the Disneyland Hotel. These new villas are the first Disney Vacation Club rooms at the Disneyland Hotel. Though the rooms are part of the Disney Vacation Club timeshare program, they can be booked with cash by any guest.
Disneyland has provided information about the opening date for the hotel, released pricing for the new hotel tower, and provided a look at the concept art.
Let’s dive into all of the details about his new Disney Vacation Club tower at the Disneyland Hotel.
When do the Villas at the Disneyland Hotel Open?
Disney has announced that the new Disney Vacation Club tower at the Disneyland Hotel will be available for stays starting September 28, 2023.
The Disney Vacation Club tower is the new 344-room fourth tower at the Disneyland Hotel. The tower is located between the Goofy’s Kitchen Disneyland Character dining building and Frontierland Tower. The building does not replace any existing hotel rooms. The only downside of the location of the building is the shade that it will cause on the pool area later in the day.
You can read our review of the Disneyland Hotel here and our review of the neighboring Grand Californian Hotel here. The Paradise Pier Hotel is currently under renovation for its transformation into the Pixar Place hotel.
Disney is also offering a new up to 15% off discount on stays at Disneyland Resort Hotels that was just released.
When can I buy points at the Villas at the Disneyland Hotel via the Disney Vacation Club?
Points at The Villas at the Disneyland Hotel are now on sale for both current Disney Vacation Club members and potential new members of DVC.
View the point charts for the property for 2023 and 2024 below. For those first-time buyers, read our guide to buying into Disney Vacation Club for everything you need to know.
Here’s the 2023 Disneyland Hotels DVC Villas point chart:
And, there 2024 Disneyland Hotels DVC villas point chart:
Disney Vacation Club points at The Villas at the Disneyland Hotel will be priced at $230 per point. Currently, Disney Vacation Club points at Aulani in Hawaii or the Riviera or Grand Floridian at Walt Disney World are selling for $217 per point when purchased directly. You can read about buying Disney Vacation Club direct vs resale here.
The amount of points required for stays throughout the year is similar to the point charts for the other DVC property at the Disneyland Resort, Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel.
The point charts include a couple of other details about buying into the Disney Vacation Club property at Disneyland.
First, just like the other most recent Disney Vacation Club Resort, Disney’s Riviera Resort in Walt Disney World, the property will only be available for DVC members that purchased their points directly from Disney vs from resale. For DVC Resale purchases submitted on or after January 19, 2019, Disney Vacation Club contracts purchased at resale at the original 14 DVC resorts will only work for those 14 resorts. Contracts purchased via resale at the Riviera or the Villas at the Disneyland Hotel will only be valid for stays at that home resort.
Second, the contract lists that “for all stays at The Villas at Disneyland Hotel, the City of Anaheim imposes a nightly transient occupancy tax”. This tax is “based upon the number of Vacation Points required for the stay” and the fine print states that “this tax must be paid by check-out”.
The contract finally also states that “a per vehicle parking fee may apply to all stays at this resort”. This would be a change from the Disney Vacation Club offering at Disney’s Grand Californian right across the street where parking will remain complimentary a Disney rep confirmed.
When can I book the Disneyland Hotel Disney Vacation Club Rooms?

New Look at Disneyland Hotel Vacation Club Villas Pool Area
Disney has shared a look at the new pool area coming to the Villas at the Disneyland Hotel. The new pool area consists of the Palette Pool, Palm Breeze Bar, and a new splash pad. The splash pad will incorporate elements from the classic Steamboat Willie short.

The splash pad will feature a large model of the boat from the short film that will be helmed by Mickey Mouse. The boat will also include a waterfall, misty fog affects, and a variety of fountains. This is a nice addition to the existing Disneyland Hotel pool area that features the awesome retro Disneyland Monorail slides.
The new Palm Breeze Bar is inspired by the classic art style of Disney Legend Mary Blair while the entire pool area is designed to feel like a mid-century modern hangout.
Though the new pool area is being added as part of the Disney Vacation Club addition the new pool area is available to all Disneyland Hotel guests.

Disney promises the tower will “immerse you in discovering the creative storytelling process” and that the tower will bring favorite stories to life in unique styles of themed accommodations.
The lobby of the new hotel will feature a new mural designed specifically for the hotel by Disney Animation artist Lorelay Bové. She previously worked on “The Princess and the Frog” to “Encanto.”
Below is the new Jungle Book-themed duo studio.
Now, here’s a look at the deluxe suites that are themed to Princess and the Frog or Sleeping Beauty. These rooms sleep up to four people.

Next, the one or two-bedroom villas. The one-bedroom villa sleeps up to five guests and the two-bedroom villa sleeps up to nine guests. These rooms will be inspired by the colors of Fantasia or Princess and the Frog.

Finally, Disney shared a look at the Grand Villa at the Disneyland Hotel which is fun to dream about. This is a three-bedroom, multi-story, villa that can sleep up to 12 guests! The first floor of the villa includes a full-size kitchen, a large dining area, and a double-sided fireplace that connects the living room with the private outdoor balcony. On the first floor, you’ll also find a primary suite inspired by Bambi.
The second floor of the suite includes a Frozen inspired bedroom and Moana inspired bedroom. The washer and dryer for the villa is also located on the second floor.
