Our friend Kristen from ResalesDVC, is super hopeful that the new hotel slated for Disneyland in 2021 will include DVC rooms! Would you be excited for DVC to be included in this new Disneyland destination?

Interested in learning more about purchasing a DVC resale contract without feeling pressured? Contact Kristen at 1-866-544-2919 or email at TEAM@RESALESDVC.COM.

**For full disclosure, I do not get paid or receive compensation from Resales DVC. I did purchase my own contract through them and was more than impressed with their help and knowledge. I am just sharing because they are that awesome. 🙂 

new disneyland resort hotelCould there be a new DVC resort at Disneyland soon? We sure hope so! The news coming out of California this week is that the much-hyped parking expansion, the Disneyland Eastern Gateway Project, has been abandoned as the Walt Disney Co. focuses instead on plans to build a 6,500-spot parking structure on the Pinocchio Lot. The new parking lot would be next to…drum-roll please…a new 700-room Four Diamond hotel!

For the first time in almost two decades, Disney will open a new Four Diamond hotel. Set to open in 2021, this hotel will transform the west end of the Downtown Disney District and anchor a new gateway to the Disneyland Resort. The OC Registermentions that the new hotel will be located in space currently occupied by AMC, Earl of Sandwich, Rainforest Cafe, and ESPN Zone.

While there is no official word about this new hotel incorporating Disney Vacation Club villas, we will certainly keep our fingers-crossed that it does! Currently, the only DVC villas at Disneyland are located in the Grand Californian Hotel & Spa. With only 48 dedicated DVC units, this resort can be very hard to book for members. Another DVC property at Disneyland would be a great addition to the growing portfolio of DVC resorts.
