A new 12-story Disney Vacation Club resort has been proposed by Disney that would sit next to the Disneyland Hotel.
This proposal comes almost a year after a planned luxury hotel that was scheduled to have 700 rooms and was to be located at the west end of Downtown Disney was canceled. The project was cancelned following the city of Anaheim eliminating a tax rebate agreement worth $267 million to the company. Disney will not be seeking a tax incentive from the city of Anaheim for the Disney Vacation Club project, officials said.
The application was submitted to the city of Anaheim by Disney on November 22 for development review of a new 350-room Disney Vacation Club tower resort. If approved, Disney claims that the project will create 550 construction jobs and 100 timeshare operations jobs. Construction of the project would include removal of an existing laundry facility.
The project would be a 280,000-square-foot vacation ownership project that, if approved, will increase Disneyland’s Disney Vacation Club capacity to over five times what it currently is. There are currently only 71 Disney Vacation Club (DVC) rooms at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel and Spa.
The proposed project would be the 17th DVC resort and would open following the addition of two DVC resorts currently under costruction at Walt Disney World. Disney’s Riviera Resort, opening in December 2019 and Reflections Lakeside Lodge going in where the old River Country Water Park once was.
Disney has not announced a potential opening date.
Thank you for stopping by and for the love of the mouse, never forget, that it all started with a mouse.
