Today, Disney Vacation Club announced that one of its newest resorts, The Villas at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel, recently sold out of all available vacation ownership inventory. The 50 two-bedroom equivalent villas mark Disney Vacation Club’s first venture to the West Coast and the Disneyland Resort.
“We are very pleased with the success of our first West Coast resort,” said Disney Vacation Club President Jim Lewis. “Families have enjoyed visiting the Disneyland Resort for decades and Disney Vacation Club members who own at The Villas at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel will enjoy the savings for decades to come.”
The Villas at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa opened in September 2009 as the first stage of Disney Vacation Club’s westward expansion. Designed as part of an expansion of the existing hotel, the villas complement the original California Arts & Crafts architecture, while offering members and guests a variety of Disney Vacation Club amenities, such as kitchens, living and dining areas, and other home-like amenities.
Located just steps from Disney California Adventure Park, many of the villas overlook the transformation of the theme park. Beyond the debut of “Summer Nightastic” and “World of Color” this summer, Disney California Adventure Park is poised to premiere The Little Mermaid ~ Ariel’s Undersea Adventure in 2011. Additionally, summer 2012 is scheduled to bring even more excitement to the theme park with a new front entryway greeting park guests and the opening of Cars Land, a 12-acre expansion inspired by the Disney-Pixar blockbuster “Cars.” Disney Vacation Club members and guests who visit Disney California Adventure Park will be able to experience these exciting changes firsthand over the coming years.
Though sales at The Villas at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa have ended, Disney Vacation Club still offers inventory at four other properties, including Aulani, Disney Vacation Club Villas, Ko Olina, Hawai‘i, which began sales in July. Located on the island of O‘ahu, phase one of Aulani is scheduled to open on August 29, 2011 and to offer families a large variety of water activities, excursions, restaurants, spa experiences and more. Disney Vacation Club also offers some East Coast inventory at Bay Lake Tower at Disney’s Contemporary Resort, Disney’s Animal Kingdom Villas and Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort, all located at the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida.
