Last week, Disney revealed new details regarding its planned fourth hotel on Disneyland grounds. The 700-room, Four Diamond hotel will be situated on the western side of Disney’s property, near the monorail station. Planned amenities include two pools and a rooftop restaurant with fireworks viewing platform. One detail not addressed is whether or not the hotel will include Disney Vacation Club villas. The sole DVC presence in California is 48 villas at the Grand Californian Hotel which sold-out way back in 2010. While there would seem to be a market for more villas, the premium land value at Disneyland raises some doubts as to whether Disney wishes to commit additional space to DVC.
Topic: Do you think the new Disneyland hotel will include DVC villas?
Then again the powers that be, might think in terms of Aulani not selling out fast enough, another west coast DVC would take that focus away.
But i still think they way we travel and do vacations today a DVC at DL will make sense.
I could se for us that travel from Europe, that flying in to Los Angeles and doing 2-3 days at DL and then fly on to Aulani
as a good option. Well you wouldn't need to travel from Europe to like that variation to a vacation.
The naysayers in the Disney sphere will probably claim that since people would prefer shorter stays, hotel rooms would make more sense
I get Florida were one can stay for weeks and spend a lot of $ on Disney, while the shorter Californian stays will generate more park revenue from
hotel room guests since the turnaround would be easier to achieve for a straight up hotel.
Then again, day guests might be the largest crowd at DL, I really have no clue.
I vote NO there will not be a DVC at the new DLRA 4 star hotel. Which would be a real shame as I know they could sell it out.
1: DVC points will pay for the entire project.
2: Money TODAY vs long term. Everything revolves around shareholder value and double digit growth. With ESPN & ABC in the tank, not to mention a couple clunkers at the box office, Disney needs the continued cash flow DVC provides. There will never not be a NEXT Resort, all the way up to recycling resorts with expired contracts.
