Disney vacation adventures into fantastical realms continue coast to coast in fall 2009 as Disney Vacation Club (DVC) unveils home-like accommodations inspired by the architecture and style of a long-ago time.


With the scheduled fall opening of The Villas at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa, vacationers at Disneyland Resort – whether Disney Vacation Club Members or overnight guests – will be able to unwind and stretch out in an environment that celebrates the influences of California’s renowned Arts & Crafts style of the late 19th and early 20th century.

The scheduled late-fall debut of 50 two-bedroom equivalent vacation villas marks Disney Vacation Club’s first accommodations on the West Coast and caps a year when DVC will have revived “treehouse living” at Walt Disney World Resort (Treehouse Villas at Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa), immersed guests in the African experience … in Florida (Kidani Village at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge), and brought vacation ownership so close to Magic Kingdom (Bay Lake Tower at Disney’s Contemporary Resort) that families can blow Tinker Bell a kiss goodnight and use Cinderella Castle as their nightlight.

The villas are part of a Grand Californian expansion that also includes more than 200 new hotel rooms, a new swimming pool and underground valet parking – all within walking distance of the fantasy and fun of Disneyland Park, Disney’s California Adventure Park and Downtown Disney District.

Based on availability, guests can kick back in a Disney Vacation Club villa at the Grand Californian by calling the Disneyland Resort Reservation Sales Center at 714/520-5060, by visiting www.disneyland.com or by consulting a travel agent.
