The final Disney Vacation Club destination is set to reopen from its COVID-19 closure on December 6, 2020.
The Villas at Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa will reopen to members beginning Sunday, December 6. Only the 48 DVC villas will open at that time, with the resort's 900+ hotel rooms due to remain shuttered.
