It's official: the sixteenth Disney Vacation Club resort will be known as The Villas at Disneyland Hotel.
Current Disneyland Resort President--and former Disney Vacation Club Senior VP--Ken Potrock recently hosted an operational update for the area. Among the topics was the new DVC project on the grounds of the Disneyland Hotel.
According to a report from MiceChat.com, Potrock confirmed the resort will go by the name The Villas at Disneyland Hotel. Concept art shows a building designed to blend with the three existing towers at Disneyland Hotel. Visible in the foreground is the new pool which will be added as part of the project.
The new resort consists of 350 rooms, of which 271 are slated to be Studio-size units. The building also features 38 two-person "pods" similar to the Tower Studios at Disney's Riviera Resort. 19 one bedroom villas, 20 two bedroom villas and 2 three bedroom Grand Villas round out the project. The building is being constructed on 2 acres of land on the southwest side of the Disneyland Hotel grounds. It will rise up to 12 stories, and bring 307 additional parking spaces.
Concept images of the villa interiors were shown at Disney's virtual D23 event in the fall of 2021.
The resort is scheduled to open sometime in 2023. DVCNews will have additional coverage of the project in the coming weeks.
The update from MiceChat.com features a wide range of additional Disneyland information. Potrock confirmed that Disney's Paradise Pier Hotel will be updated with new Pixar theming and receive a private entrance to Disney California Adventure. Updates are planned for the Downtown Disney area, including a makeover for the old AMC Theater area. Potrock also shared some updates on the Toontown renovations which will bring Mickey & Minnie's Runaway Railway to Disneyland. Check out MiceChat.com for complete details.
