Disney Vacation Club has opened its 16th property, The Villas at Disneyland Hotel, in the US state of California, inspired by Walt Disney Animation Studios.
The property is the first new tower since 1979 at the Disneyland Hotel.
It also marks the first Disney Vacation Club property at Disneyland Resort following the opening of The Villas at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa in 2009.
Disney Vacation Club senior vice-president and general manager Bill Diercksen said: “The Villas at Disneyland Hotel celebrates the remarkable legacy of Walt Disney Animation Studios’ storytelling and the creative process these talented artists go through to bring Disney characters to life from sketch to screen.”
“With imaginative details and spacious accommodations, this beautiful new tower is the perfect place for families to create magical vacation memories for years to come.”
The tower’s official opening was attended by Bill Diercksen and Dan Coleman, general manager of the Disneyland Hotel, along with Disney cast members and characters from Disney stories.
