As reported a short time ago by The Orange County Register, Disney has filed an initial application with the City of Anaheim to build a new 12-story, 350-room Disney Vacation Club tower next to the Disneyland Hotel.
The initial application for this development was submitted earlier today for conceptual development review of this proposed addition to the Disneyland Resort.
In a statement, Disney Vacation Club Senior Vice President, Terri Schultz said:
“We look forward to working closely with the Disneyland Resort, the City of Anaheim, and engaging our neighbors on this project, which would also create new jobs and spending in the community, as well as generate additional revenue for the city.”
This new tower would provide a much-needed addition to the DVC offerings in Disneyland, which has been a hot commodity for members for years.
Additionally, this proposed resort would not affect the Downtown Disney area, as a previously announced but canceled Disney hotel in the area would have.
Schultz also stated, “Our members tell us over and over again how much they love the outstanding accommodations, value and flexibility of Disney Vacation Club. Today we took the first step toward providing the additional accommodations they have been asking for at the Disneyland Resort.”
Since the project has only recently been announced it is assumed that it will not be completed before 2022.
Shortly after the announcement, Pete and The DVC Show team shared their thoughts on this unexpected announcement:
