A new Disney Vacation Club (DVC) property might be coming to the Disneyland Resort! Disney has proposed a new 12-story DVC tower next to the Disneyland Hotel. They had originally planned a 700-room luxury hotel to be built at the western end of Downtown Disney District but the plug got pulled on that project.
On Friday, Nov. 22 Disneyland submitted an application to the city of Anaheim for a conceptual development review of a new 350-room DVC tower. A hotel laundry facility and some other behind-the-scenes structures would need to be removed to make room for the new tower.
Disney has not yet set a start date for the project, but it is not expected to be completed before 2022. The look and theme of the new DVC property will complement the classic 1955 Disneyland Hotel. The project area is located in a grassy area between South Walnut St and the Disneyland Hotel’s Frontier Tower, swimming pool and convention center.
If the project is approved, the new DVC resort would create 550 construction jobs and 100 timeshare operations jobs. It would also increase Disneyland’s timeshare capacity nearly sixfold – adding to the 71 DVC rooms at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa.
The Disney Vacation Club debuted in 1991 as a flexible, points-based membership system rather than the traditional fixed-week timeshare model. A Disney Vacation Club membership costs a minimum of $18,800 plus closing costs starting at $556 and annual dues that start at $66 a month or $792 annually.
The newest DVC resort, Disney’s Riviera Resort, is set to open at the Walt Disney World Resort next month and another DVC resort is planned to be added near the Magic Kingdom in 2022. Since most of the Disney Vacation Club resorts are located in Florida, this new DVC tower would be a great addition to the Disneyland Resort!
