The Disneyland Resort is planning a new Disney Vacation Club (DVC) Tower and it’s scheduled to open in 2023. This new tower will boast a Mickey-shaped spa, outdoor pool bar and multi-level grand villas with expansive balconies overlooking the Disneyland Hotel property.
This tower is planned to be built on 2 acres next to the Disneyland Hotel. The tower is set to be 12 stories with 350 rooms including 271 larger studios, 38 smaller two-person studios, 20 two-bedroom suites, 19 one-bedroom suites, and two Grand Villas. The artist concept rendering pictured above shows the tower designed to complement the look of the Disneyland Hotel.
A two-story open-air ground floor would allow DVC guests to pass through to both sides of the building. Lounge chairs would surround pools on either side of the Disney Vacation Club tower. The Mickey-shaped spa would be part of a new pool area along with a small outdoor pool bar.
This new project is still in planning stages and hasn’t been approved by the city of Anaheim yet. Disney says this new DVC resort would create 550 construction jobs and 100 time-share operations jobs if the project is approved. It would also increase Disneyland’s time-share capacity nearly six-fold — adding to the 71 Disney Vacation Club rooms at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa.
The DVC applications Disney has submitted to the city of Anaheim are the first in a series of filings and approvals Disney will submit and seek with the project. Construction is estimated to take 3-4 years so the 2023 opening might get pushed back.
This new DVC tower would be Disney’s 17th DVC resort. Here’s hoping it gets approved soon!
