After shuttering reopening plans late last year following the holiday uptick of the COVID-19 coronavirus, it seems the Disney Vacation Club (DVC) timeshare program is ready to once again reopen Villas at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa starting May 2, 2020.

For this initial phase, the property will be open only for DVC Members and the main hotel will remain closed. Similar to the previous reopening announcement, it’s expected that because only a portion of the property is returning to service, restaurants, amenities and other offerings may be modified or unavailable, limited in capacity and/or subject to limited availability or closure.

Disney is also once again stressing that the reopening comes under guidance from health authorities and appropriate government agencies.

The Disneyland Hotel, Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel and main hotel portions of Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa remain closed and will reopen at a later, yet unannounced, date. Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park remain closed and will reopen at a later date, pending state and local government approvals. The Downtown Disney District remains open including portions of Disney California Adventure Ppark

The announcement sent to DVC members also includes a few additional details regarding policies and procedures.
