ANAHEIM, CA — Disneyland Resort shared a rendering and full details on the proposed 350 room Disney Vacation Club tower, Friday, the day of the resort's 65th birthday. Though celebrations were put to the back burner due to the coronavirus pandemic and the most extended park closure in history, fans can look at the proposed plans for what is coming next.
Inside the 1,605 page document, loyal members of the DVC will find plans for five types of villas at the new tower, including a small studio typed "pod," a larger studio, 1-bedroom lock-off, 2-bedroom, and two-story "Grand Villa."
The document, filed with the City of Anaheim Planning and Building Department document, is the "final site plan" and "tentative parcel map" and a conditional use permit. The plans will be voted on Monday, July 20.
It has already been approved by the staff of the Planning and Building Department, according to LaughingPlace.com.
To date, vacation club members are relegated to villas at the Grand Californian Hotel and trading points for hotel dollars. The new tower is a much-anticipated expansion of opportunities for California vacation club members.
The hotel tower will be built in a "stair-step" fashion, to be less "visibly imposing on the neighborhood at its back, on Walnut Street.
The lowest point of the tower will be five stories tall, according to the resort.
"As with all projects, this proposed plan will go through a series of reviews as part of the project approval process with the city of Anaheim," according to Disney officials. "Right now, we are in the entitlement process with the city, which is a continuation of an application submitted back on November 22, 2019."
An original plan was for a much larger property proposed over a year ago for a 700 room hotel was canceled.
