We’ve already seen a sneak peek inside at the new duo studios, deluxe studios, one- and two-bedroom villas, AND three-bedroom grand villas (which are HUGE), and now we’ve got the details on WHEN you can start booking your stay!
Disney has announced that The Villas at Disneyland Hotel will go on sale for existing Disney Vacation Club Members on May 2nd and will then open to the public shortly after on May 30th, 2023.
Keep in mind that this is the date that you can purchase a real estate interest in The Villas at Disneyland Hotel (which is represented by an annual allotment of Vacation Points). Existing DVC members will not be able to book these new rooms using points until July 27th and non-members who wish to pay cash to stay in the rooms will also have to wait until July.
And, now for the big question — how much is it going to cost? Let’s first go over how much it costs to become a member at The Villas at Disneyland Hotel.
According to Disney’s website, The Villas at Disneyland Hotel is priced at $230 per point and you need to purchase a minimum of 150 points (though you can purchase anywhere from 150-325 points).
So, in total, it will cost you somewhere between $34,500-$74,750 depending on how many points you choose to purchase. Keep in mind too that this is just the cost of the property and does not include closing costs or the annual dues (which are billed monthly).
The closing costs have yet to be announced but the Disney Vacation Club has confirmed that the monthly dues will be $9.06 per point.
For comparison, direct DVC purchases at Disney Aulani, Disney’s Riviera Resort, and Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa is currently priced at $217 per point (with a minumum purchase of 150 points required). So, The Villas at Disneyland Hotel are a bit pricier.
If you’re already a DVC member and just looking to add on points at The Villas at Disneyland Hotel, you’ll need to buy a minimum add-on of 50 points. But, you can save some money per point if you purchase between May 2nd to May 29th before The Villas go on sale to non-DVC members.
Here are the discounted price per point for DVC members from May 2nd-May 29th:
- 50-125 points: $230 per point ($0 savings/point)
- 125-149 points: $226 per point ($4 savings/point)
- 150-174 points: $210 per point ($20 savings/point)
- 175-199 points: $209 per point ($21 savings/point)
- 200-249 points: $208 per point ($22 savings/point)
- 250-299 points: $207 per point ($23 savings/point)
- 300-499 points: $206 per point ($24 savings/point)
- 500-999 points: $205 per point ($25 savings/point)
- 1000+ points: $204 per point ($26 savings/point)
Keep in mind that additional monthly dues, closing costs, and other fees may be applied to your purchase with these incentives. And, once May 30th hits, check back for an update on the new incentives for current and new DVC members to buy points at The Villas at Disneyland Hotel!
Now, let’s talk about how many points it will cost you to actually book a room at The Villas at Disneyland Hotel once it’s open.
According to the Disney Vacation Club points charts released for 2023 and 2024, it will cost anywhere from as little as 10 points up to 1,250 points per night to book the rooms. We know, we know…that’s a HUGE range. Here’s how it breaks down further in the 2023 points chart…
…and the 2024 points chart.
So, generally speaking, at the very minimum a family of 4 will be able to book a stay in the Deluxe Studio at The Villas at Disneyland Hotel for one week (or 7 nights) with 150 points.
Of course, this will vary based on the room type you want, the number of people you are traveling with, and the time of year that you’re vacationing. But, it’s important to do the math ahead of time to help you determine how many points you’ll need to purchase when you buy in. Be sure that you consider what room type you’ll need to fit your family, when you want to travel, and how many nights per year you plan to stay.
So, mark your calendars for May 2nd DVC members (and May 30th if you’re hoping to become a member)! And, stay tuned to The VacationEAR for more of the latest Disney hotel news and updates!
