The next phase of the Disneyland Resort reopening has just been announced. Similar to the gradual reopening here at Walt Disney World, the Disney Vacation Club section of Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa will reopen on May 2.
The announcement was made via email to Disney Vacation Club members:
Today I am pleased to share that The Villas at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel® & Spa is scheduled to reopen on May 2, 2021. Our West Coast cast members are excited to work their magic once again and “welcome home” members. with improved 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 to 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 will be 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 visiting the website for the latest details on the staged reopening plans for the Disneyland Resort.

Non-DVC rooms at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel will be closed. The Disneyland Hotel and Paradise Pier Hotel are also closed at this time.
Please note that during the initial reopening period of The Villas at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa, most restaurants, amenities, activities, and services will change, have limited capacity, or be unavailable based on health and physical distance. Additionally, some areas and offers will be 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.
