Disney has elected to postpone the scheduled reopening of The Villas at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa originally set for December 6th. This delay comes as a result of the newly announced stay at home guidelines set forth by the State of California.

In an announcement posted on the Disney Vacation Club website, Disney states:

On December 3, the State of California announced new regional stay at home guidelines. As a result, we’re delaying the reopening of The Villas at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa while we evaluate the guidance.

As we continue to work towards reopening, promoting health and safety for our Guests and Cast Members is a top priority. Our gradual, phased approach to reopening considers the guidance of government and local health authorities, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in addition to the U.S. Travel Association and the Disney team of health professionals. 

The Disneyland Hotel, Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel and Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa remain closed and will reopen at a later date. Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park remain closed and will reopen at a later date, pending state and local government approvals. The Downtown Disney District is now open.
