The Villas at Disneyland Hotel are the newest Disney Vacation Club (DVC) property at the Disneyland Resort and we had the opportunity to stay in a 2-Bedroom Villa with Preferred View with a theme of FANTASIA. If you’re curious about becoming a DVC member or just window shopping a vacation or staycation at the Happiest Place on Earth, we’ve got your full guide to know what this lodging includes!
The photos and information in this article are from a stay on September 30, 2023.
Before we take a closer look at everything included, enjoy this room tour video below taking a closer look at Room 300 at The Villas at Disneyland Hotel.
The 2-Bedroom Villas feature a theme of either Princess and the Frog or, what you’ll see on this page, Fantasia. The accommodation features a common area with a full kitchen, dinning area, and bathroom plus a primary bedroom with en-suite bathroom and a secondary bedroom with en-suite bathroom. This room type may sleep up to 9 guests and 1 infant — cribs and high chairs are available upon request.
Although this was a dedicated 2-Bedroom Villa, some of the 2-Bedroom Villas are “lock-off villas” which are comprised of a 1-Bedroom Villa connected to a Deluxe Studio via a door that’s lockable on both sides. The noticeable difference is that in the lock-off 2-Bedroom Villa, the second bedroom is a Deluxe Studio which means it has a separate kitchenette with its own sink, mini refrigerator, and microwave plus its own dedicated entrance separate from the main entrance into the main suite. This feature allows Disney the ability to offer 2-Bedroom Villas when needed but offers the added flexibility of being able to turn it into a 1-Bedroom Villa + a separate Deluxe Studio which can be issued as separate accommodations.
The primary bedroom features a king bed, a 55″ flat screen-TV, a wardrobe closet with spare pillows and blanket, and a private balcony. The bathroom includes soaking tub with hand-cut tile mosaic, walk-in shower with bench, double vanity with dual sinks, a separate toilet room, and, of course, a hair dryer.
The theme of the bedroom carries through the Fantasia theme with warm earthy tones. The dancing dandelion fairies float through the air on the backboard above the bed while fairies embroidered into the backsplash fly around the television. The hand-cut tile mosaic of the goldfish from Fantasia is a focal point of the bathroom which also has lighted pixie dust sprinkled across the mirrors.
The second bedroom features 2 queen beds, a 55″ flat screen-TV, and a closet with a wall safe, spare pillows and blanket. The bathroom includes a standing shower, a vanity with dual sinks, a separate toilet room, and hair dryer.
The theme carries through the same beautiful dandelion and fairy motif, this time in cooler blue hues. The chandelier in this room forms another dandelion. A fun detail is bright yellow semi-transparent strip on the window. At night, it takes any light that shines through from outside and turns it into a beautiful rainbow halo. Fairies and pixie dust dot the mirrors in the bathroom. Framed artwork features concept imagery for Fantasia and the closet has a back accent wall featuring more fairies and dandelions.
Also serving as the entrance into the suite, amenities include a sitting area (with a queen-size foldout bed) with a 65″ flat screen-TV, and an additional twin foldout bed. This area is connected with the kitchen and dining area, plus an in-room washer & dryer, and a large closet that includes spare pillows and blanket, a laundry basket, iron and ironing board. There is also a bathroom with toilet and standing shower and bench.
Subtle Fantasia themes and imagery are on display here. Over the dining area is the iconic Conductor and his orchestra created as layered shadow box image of sorts. Meanwhile the wallpaper features the visual representation of musical sound which is also carried through onto the curtains in the living area. The curtains also feature a star and moon motif reminiscent of Mickey’s Sorcerer’s Apprentice hat. The rug features the quote “Realms of Color, Sounds, and Motion” which is part of a quote by Walt Disney discrobing animation as a voyage of discovery. A canvas featuring the iconic imagery of Sorcerer Mickey is also included here.
Aside from a full-size French door refrigerator with ice maker, you’ll find a large sink, stove, oven, toaster, and dishwasher. Of course, there’s a microwave and Keurig coffee maker plus additional accoutrement that includes proper dishes, glasses, and eating utensils and a host of other things you’ll need to cook up a storm including cooking utensils, pots, pans, a casserole dish, baking sheet, mixing bowls, can and bottle opener, corkscrew, and ice bucket. Although they are not in the room, you can also request a blender, electric mixer, tea kettle, mop, broom, and dustpan.
We took advantage of the amenities and made ourselves a pineapple upside down cake, extra walnuts! But if cooking on vacation is not your speed then you can order from the room service menu which includes a *gulp* $75 steak and shrimp dinner.
All 2-Bedroom Villas offer a preferred view that includes a view of either the Palette Pool or the Monorail Pool and surrounding areas. The rooms also feature a balcony from the primary bedroom for a bit of fresh air to take in the sights.
Electrical Outlets and USB Charging
We found no less than 32 available wall outlets that were not in use and we actually think we might have even missed a few. In addition, there were 7 USB ports and 7 Type C ports making for 46 different ways to power up your tech in this 2-Bedroom Villa.
As with any hotel, pricing is subject to change and will fluctuate based on day of the week, time of the year, and other factors. Below is a rough estimate of how much it will cost to stay for one night based on data available at the type of posting.
