The Villas at Disney’s Grand Californian Resort & Spa Set to Reopen on December 6th, 2020

Disney Vacation Club has announced that The Villas at Disney’s Grand Californian, currently DVC’s only Disneyland property, will be reopening on Sunday, December 6th, despite the theme park gates remaining closed. However, with the Downtown Disney District and Buena Vista Street expansion being open, this will likely be similar to how Walt Disney World opened its DVC properties before the theme parks. As for the annual dues, it has still not been revealed as to whether Grand Californian owners will be credited a portion of their 2020 annual dues or if no adjustments will be made at all.https://disneyvacationclub.disney.go.com/destinations/list/california/grand-californian-villas/
