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 including the Lock Off 2-Bedroom Villa with preferred view that 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 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 335 and Room 337 which can be combined as a Lock Off 2-Bedroom Villa at The Villas at Disneyland Hotel.
The 2-Bedroom Villas feature a theme of either Fantasia or, what you’ll see on this page, Princess and the Frog. 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 a small kitchenette and en-suite bathroom. This room type may sleep up to 9 guests and 1 infant — cribs and high chairs are available upon request.
The Lock Off 2-Bedroom Villas are a clever arrangement that are actually comprised of a 1-Bedroom Villa connected to a Deluxe Studio via a door that’s lockable on both sides as seen below. 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. This room also has its own entrance in and out of the suite.
The theme of The Princess and the Frog is evident here with a firefly lit-bayou mural headboard and carpet that features a colorful lily pad motif. Dandelion puffs from the painting are carried through in the nightstand lamps. The beautiful mosaic over the soaking tub evokes an impressionistic painting of a pond with flowers and lily pads. Fireflies light up on the mirrors in the bathroom just like they did in the film for Tiana and Naveen.
The second bedroom features 2 queen beds, a 55″ flat screen-TV, and a closet with a wall safe, spare pillows and blanket. This room has its own kitchenette with 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. The bathroom includes a walk-in shower with bench, a separate toilet room, and hair dryer.
The theme 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.
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 themes for The Princess and the Frog are continue in this space including on a colorful rug that embodies the musical DNA of New Orleans and features the lyric “Dreams Do Come True” heard sung in the film. A lily pad motif that uses vines to evoke the iconic wrought iron work so iconic in New Orleans is also represented in the wallpaper, curtains, and in other details in the room. A layered shadow box style painting of Tiana and her signature restaurant sits over the dining table. Lighted silhouettes of Ray the firefly and Louis the alligator light up the bathroom mirror.
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 similar amenities in a dedicated 2-Bedroom Villa 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.
2-Bedroom Villa Pricing:
- In DVC Points: 43-92 points per night
- In Cash: $1,397-$2,184 per night
