Room Offerings at The Villas at Disneyland Hotel

The Villas at Disneyland Hotel are part of the Disney Vacation Club. This fourth tower called the Discovery Tower, completes the major construction that has taken place at the Disneyland Hotel. All four towers called Fantasy, Adventure, Frontier, and Discovery are names inspired by lands in Disneyland Park.

The Villas at Disneyland Hotel offer numerous room options, making it easy for parties of all sizes to find accommodations that fit their travel needs.

Guests can book a cozy Duo Studios designed for two guests, Deluxe Studios that sleep up to four, 1 and  2-bedroom villas that give everyone enough room to spread out. Those traveling with a large party or wanting even more room to spread out can find a dreamlike 3-bedroom Grand Villa with enough room to sleep twelve guests.

Amazing Theming

The most exciting part of The Villas at Disneyland Hotel is the fantastic theming throughout the rooms and common areas. The inspiration for the theming comes from four beloved movies: The Jungle Book (1967), Sleeping Beauty (1959)The Princess and the Frog (2009), and Fantasia (1940).

The Duo Deluxe Suites, similar to those found at Disney’s Riviera Resort, are perfect for a party of two. A Murphy-style queen bed transforms into a couch during the day. These rooms are based on the beloved The Jungle Book film. We love the adorable print featuring Baloo chilling in the forest that hangs above the bed.

The Deluxe Studios feature theming from The Princess and the Frog or Sleeping Beauty. Very neutral colors are used throughout the room, with touches of color inspired by these films. A beautiful headboard painting featuring Tiana in vibrant colors of reds, yellows, and oranges brings a magical touch to the Deluxe Studio rooms.

The one-and-two-bedroom villas, which accommodate up to five to nine guests, see themes from Fantasia or The Princess and the Frog. Finally, the massive and stunning three-bedroom Grand Villa that is two floors sleeps twelve. See theming from Bambi (1942), Frozen (2013), and Moana (2016). With a spiral staircase, this grand villa is a magical escape.

The decor is being called contemporary with fantastic nods to the creative style of Mary Blair, the Disney legend behind “it’s a small world”.

Other Magical Areas

It isn’t just the rooms at The Villas at Disneyland Hotels that are magical. Every area is magic, from the common areas, such as the lobby, to the splash area featuring Steamboat Willie. Cool “steam” happens every 10 to 20 minutes, making it fun for little ones to explore.

The hallway design features archways that mimic the “D” logo of the Disneyland Hotel. This is just a sample of the great touches throughout the Villas at Disneyland Hotel.

A whole new pool is also available. Designed like an artist’s palette, guests can enjoy the cabanas that provide a fantastic escape.

We are thrilled to see these magical touches that bring beloved Disney movies to The Villas at Disneyland Hotel.

About Jennifer Retzlaff

My name is Jennifer Retzlaff and I became a lifelong Disney fan during my first trip to Walt Disney World in 6th grade. From that moment, Disney became a big part of my life. I live in Iowa with my husband and two kids who are growing up too quickly for my liking. I started introducing my love for Disney early to my family with a Disney honeymoon and then trips when our youngest of 18 months. Since then, our family has been to Walt Disney World over five times and we continue to plan and dream for the next trip. I love the magic that Disney brings to people through the theme parks, cruises, adventures and movies they create. As a teacher, I try to bring that magic into my classroom to help kids believe that “If You Can Dream It, You Can Do It.” I recently reached a dream of mine as I joined Magic Vacation Planner as a personal travel advisor. With this team, I can now help others plan magical vacations. As a passionate writer, I also have my own blog at magicalvacationsbyjen which is also where you can follow me on instagram for trip reviews along with tips and tricks for your next magical vacation.
