The announcement was made via email to Disney Vacation Club members:
Today I’m pleased to share that The Villas at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel® & Spa are currently scheduled to reopen on May 2, 2021. Our Cast Members on the West Coast are excited to make their magic once again and “welcome home” Members with enhanced health and safety measures based on guidance from health authorities and appropriate government agencies.
It is important to note that while the Disney Vacation Club Villas at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa will open for Members and their guests, the rest of the hotel, as well as the Disneyland® Hotel, Disney’s Paradise Pier® Hotel, Disneyland® Park and Disney California Adventure® Park, remain closed for normal operations and will reopen at a later date. The Downtown Disney® District is open with select shopping and dining experiences. We invite you to continue to visit the website for the latest details about the phased reopening plans for the Disneyland Resort.
Terri A. Schultz, SVP Disney Vacation Club
The non-DVC rooms at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel will remain closed. The Disneyland Hotel and Paradise Pier Hotel also remain closed at this time.
Please note that during the initial reopening period of The Villas at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa, most dining, amenities, activities and services will be modified, limited in capacity or unavailable based on physical distancing and health guidelines. In addition, some areas and offerings will remain temporarily closed or unavailable.
The Disney Vacation Club Villas at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel were supposed to reopen in December, but the plans were scrapped at the last minute when a new stay-at-home order was put in place.
