Disney has shared a new look at the Steamboat Willie splash pad that guests will be able to experience when they visit The Villas at Disneyland Hotel. When this new Disney Vacation Club property begins welcoming guests on September 28, 2023, there will be a beautiful new opportunity to enjoy the California sun in this new Palette Pool area.
This new area will be inspired by Steamboat Willie and the spirit of adventure and endearing creativity when guests visit it. As can be seen in the video below, there will also be a greyscale model inspired by the boat in Steamboat Willie, complete with Mickey Mouse at the helm! It will also come to life with innovative water features. This will include a cascading waterfall, misty fog effects rising from the boat’s funnels, and a variety of pop jets and fountains. In the evening colorful lights will bring the space to life and turn the model of Steamboat Willie and the surrounding splash pad into a colorful pallet for even more Disney magic.
For guests that want to take a swim, the nearby Pallete Pool will offer a refreshing space to enjoy. There will also be plenty of room to lounge about in this mid-century modern hangout. For those looking for a different way to be refreshed, the Palm Breeze Bar will feature modern decor that is inspired by Disney Legend, Mary Blair. Look around and find Blair’s quirky designs from it’s a small world or the murals in the Grand Canyon Concourse at Disney’s Contemporary Resort Hotel at Walt Disney World as well. Her inspiration can be found in many Disney Animation Films and also in some of the rooms at The Villas at Disneyland Hotel.
Currently, Disney Vacation Club sales for The Villas at Disneyland Hotel are available for all existing members. On May 30th, sales will open to the public. The Villas will begin welcoming guests starting on September 28, 2023. More information about The Villas at Disneyland Hotel and Disney Vacation Club itself can be found at DisneyVacationClub.com.
