There are a lot of perks to being a Disney Vacation Club (DVC) member.
For example, members have access to booking a larger variety of room types (including ones that are much bigger than traditional Disney hotel rooms), exclusive discounts, invites to member-only events, and more. And, members don’t just get these benefits in Disney World — they’re also available in Disneyland! But, just as DVC expands to another Disneyland Resort hotel, there’s one thing that hasn’t come to the West Coast…until now.
In Disney World, DVC members have had access to exclusive member-only lounges in EPCOT and Disney’s Contemporary Resort. And, now Disneyland FINALLY has a lounge of its own!
Disney has opened the FIRST-EVER Disney Vacation Club Member lounge in Tomorrowland at Disneyland Park as of April 19th, 2023!
More specifically, the lounge is located on the second floor of the Star Wars: Launch Bay building and is known as the Disney Vacation Club Star View Station — a Member Lounge. It is open daily during scheduled hours (check the Disneyland app for the official hours on the day you’re visiting!).
When it comes to what you’ll find inside, the lounge features a large seating area where you can take a break from all the walking involved in a park visit, complimentary Wi-Fi, charging stations, free soft drinks, and a Disney Vacation Club Member Services team. What more could you need?
And, be sure to check out the artwork in the space while you’re there! The design for the lounge is “inspired by Walt Disney’s vision for the future” so you’ll find “retro-inspired” modern furniture and murals designed by well-known Disney Legends including Mary Blair (who is best known for her work on “it’s a small world”), John Hench, and Herbert Ryman.
Plus, the lounge even features some fun nods to Disney history including the original K7 Space Suit that the Tomorrowland astronauts wore in the early years of Disneyland Park and the Space Staton S-1 Model seen in the Disneyland television series.
Keep in mind that all DVC members do need to have a valid Disneyland Park ticket and park pass reservation to be able to access the lounge during the day. And, you’ll need to show proof of DVC membership, so be sure to bring along your membership card and photo ID!
Of course, we’ll be on the lookout for any new DVC member perks in Disneyland. And, in the meantime, stay tuned to The VacationEAR for more of the latest Disney hotel news and updates!
