What's Next For Disney Vacation Club Members At Disneyland

ANAHEIM, CA —Plans for a new 350-room Disney Vacation Club time-share tower was revealed to a nearby neighborhood this week. The addition will ultimately be part of the Disneyland Hotel, a plan that was submitted last fall and resulted in the closure of ESPN Zone, The Earl of Sandwich, and The Rainforest Cafe.

While that original plan was for a much larger property, a proposed 700 room hotel, there are again plans brewing at the House of Mouse.

At the Thursday unveiling, which took place at a virtual town hall presentation to neighborhood residents, renderings were shared of the 12-story, L shaped tower.

According to a report from Magic and Walnut via Twitter, the new DVC complex "will consist of one central 12 story tower, a separate, ground level pool area, adjacent to the hotel's Frontier Tower, which is slightly taller.

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 of this report, the resort did not share a build-out timeline, but the project "is not on hold," according to Magic and Walnut.

Plans remain under review by the city of Anaheim, and no date for construction has been announced.

As of Friday, the Disneyland Resort properties, including two theme parks and three hotels, are shut down due to the coronavirus pandemic.

"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."
