The Villas at Disneyland Hotel are the newest lodging destination at the Happiest Place on Earth offering a bunch of accommodation types for all kinds of vacations, the most popular of which is probably the Deluxe Studio which we’re looking at here which has a theme of THE PRINCESS AND THE FROG. We had a chance to tour the newest Disney Vacation Club (DVC) property and are happy to invite you along for a look inside.

The photos and information in this article are from a visit on September 30, 2023.

Room Tour

Before we take a closer look at everything included, enjoy this room tour video below taking a closer look at Room 335 at The Villas at Disneyland Hotel.

What’s Included

The Deluxe Studios feature a theme of either Sleeping Beauty or, what you’ll see on this page, Princess and the Frog. The accommodation features a typical style layout with bed and common area plus a kitchenette and bathroom. This room type may sleep up to 4 guests and 1 infant — cribs and high chairs are available upon request.

The noticeable difference is that in the dedicated 2-Bedroom Villa, the second bedroom is not a Deluxe Studio so it does not have a separate kitchenette or 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 Deluxe Studio + a separate 1-Bedroom Villa which can be issued as separate accommodations.


Bed and Common Area

The Deluxe Studio maximizes an efficient use of layout to pack function into the small space. The room includes a queen bed and a queen-size pull-down bed that retracts into a sofa, a 55″ flat screen-TV, and a closet with wall safe, spare pillows and blanket. The split bathroom includes a walk-in shower with bench, a separate toilet room, and, of course, a hair dryer.

The theme of The Princess and the Frog carries through with a rug that features a colorful lily pad motif and the lyric “Blue Skies and Sunshine” heard sung in the film. A relief pattern backsplash behind the television features iconography that evokes the film while artwork over the headboard features Tiana inside of her signature restaurant with her mother. Artwork on the wall features concept art and sketches from the film and beautiful lily pads light up on the mirrors in the bathroom.

There is kitchenette that includes sink, mini refrigerator, microwave, toaster and Keurig coffee maker. You’ll also find additional accoutrement that includes proper dishes, glasses, and eating utensils, 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. 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.

The View

Deluxe Studios are available in three main types. Preferred View (of either the Palette Pool or the Monorail Pool and surrounding areas); Standard View (gardens, street, or parking areas); and Deluxe Studio Garden (these are are separate from the main tower and feature easy access to the pool with either a patio or a balcony.) The windows in this room don’t open and there’s no balcony but the view does look out on the Steamboat Willie water play area and Palette Pool.


Electrical Outlets and USB Charging

We found no less than 8 available wall outlets that were not in use and we actually think we might have even missed a few. In addition, there were  3 USB ports and 3 Type C ports making for 14 different ways to power up your tech in this Deluxe Studio.
