Disney Reveals Opening Date For NEW Deluxe Vacation Club Accommodations

Did you know that several new accommodations have just opened or are in the works at Disney Resorts? (And, most are Disney Vacation Club accommodations…)

At the Walt Disney World Resorts, new DVC accommodations opened last year at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, offering Guests deluxe accommodations just steps from Magic Kingdom Park. Nearby, construction is underway for a new Disney Vacation Club tower at the site of the former Spirit of Aloha dinner show at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort.

The next new accommodations to open for Disney Vacation Club stays will arrive on the west coast at the Disneyland Hotel this fall. We’ve already shared a first look at some of the concept art for the new Villas at Disneyland Hotel, and Disney has now confirmed the official opening date for the new spot will be September 28, 2023.

The new villas are inspired by iconic stories from Walt Disney Animation Studios bringing beloved characters and breathtaking artwork from the films into a Deluxe Disney Resort setting.

The Disneyland Hotel has received several updates over the years while keeping its AAA Four Diamond status. The newest accommodations at the Resort will mark the fourth tower constructed onsite, offering more Guests than ever before the ability to stay in very short walking distance of both Disney Parks, Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure, as well as the Downtown Disney District which offers shopping, dining, and entertainment all within steps.

While our last look at the concept art for the new villas shared a glimpse into the hotel’s Guest rooms, the latest images from Disney show off the pool and lobby spaces (and they look stunning!) The lobby for instance, pictured above, will feature works by Disney Animation artist Lorelay Bové, who has worked on several projects ranging from The Princess and the Frog (2009) to Encanto (2021).

Along with the vibrant lobby and pool area, the new tower will add 344 Guest rooms which will include deluxe studios, duo studios, and two-bedroom villas, and for the ultimate splurge-worthy vacation, grand villas, all complete with modern amenities and art inspired by The Jungle Book (1967), The Princess and the Frog, Fantasia (1940), Sleeping Beauty (1959), and more.
