It’s been several months since we’ve talked about the Disneyland Hotel DVC Tower, but that doesn’t mean that things haven’t been moving forward with this highly anticipated addition to the Disney Vacation Club line-up.

Construction has already started on this previously announced 350-room Disney Vacation Club tower proposed for the Disneyland Hotel. As part of the hotel’s reopening on Friday, Disney added the following language to the resort’s website:

It is possible you may see and hear construction as we build a new Disney Vacation Club property. To minimize any disruptions, activities that may create noise will not start earlier than 9:00 AM.

Back in May, Twitter user @MagicAndWalnut shared a few images of the initial demolition being performed to clear the way for the new DVC tower.

As we reported previously, this 12-story tower is expected to include a variety of room accommodations, including smaller two-person studio villas, similar to the Tower Studio properties that are featured at Disney’s Riviera Resort. Proposed plans suggest that the resort will feature 271 Deluxe Studios, 38 smaller ‘Tower Studio’ style rooms, 19 One-Bedroom Villas, 20 Two-Bedroom Villas, and 2 Grand Villas.

The news of this construction continuing is a nice consolation a short time after learning that Disneyland Hotel’s beloved Steakhouse 55 will not be reopening.

Let us know in the comments what you think of these new images and insight into the Disneyland DVC Tower and whether you’ve started saving for when this resort becomes available!

  • $350/pt, no incentives…will sell out in 15 mins.

  • I do believe that the initial price point will be high but not THAT high! I’m going to say $250pp with no incentives. The fact that the great majority of the rooms will be studios, most people will only buy small 50-75 point contracts, which makes it somewhat affordable. I’m still hoping that there will be more 1 BRs by the time this thing is finished. I’m also hoping that the studios will sleep 5. Availability for 1-2 BRs will be very difficult at this resort.

    • Now is the time to contact DVC to let them know about your desire for more 1-2 bedrooms. I did and hear back from Terri Schultz and her response re room size distribution (I was pushing for more 1 and 2 as well):
      ” In determining what to build, we spend multiple hours studying overall member behavior at Disneyland which helped inform us.”. But yes I think there will be a lot of east coasters buying and many will want to stay 3-5 days to do other things in the area while here and use DVC as home base and are used to having laundry / larger hang space. I mean not tons but more than 5.5% of the units being 1 bedrooms. Maybe we are wrong. Also there will be no restaurant of any kind in the actual DVC tower. Who knows what they are doing in place of Steakhouse 55. Anyway, any feedback you have to give…

      “I appreciate your feedback on the proposed resort at Disneyland, along with any other feedback you may have. In addition to sharing thoughts with Member Services directly, there is also a feedback tool on the DVC Member Website that will get your thoughts to the various members of the team, including your HOA board of directors. “

  • Hi, when is the hotel due to be completed?

  • I hope that there will be more Grand Villas built on to it in the future?
