Disney Vacation Club (DVC) members should brace themselves for a slight increase in tax for their stays at The Villas at Disneyland Hotel. In 2025, the tax will see a hike of slightly above 3%.
Transient Occupancy Tax For 2025
The imposition of a Transient Accommodations Tax on stays at the new DVC villas in California was unexpected by many. This tax, levied by the City of Anaheim, is an additional charge to the membership’s initial buy-in cost and the recurring annual dues.
Initially, the tax was estimated to be $2.73 per point for stays in 2023, later adjusted to $2.78. The rate for 2024 remains the same. However, the 2025 points charts reveal a rise to $2.869 per point, a hike of about 3.2%.
Understanding The Tax Calculation
To put things into perspective, a stay priced at 23 points per night would attract a tax of $63.94 in 2023 and 2024, which will increase to $65.99 in 2025. This tax is applicable for all nights of the stay and is charged upon arrival.
Transient Occupancy Tax For Other DVC Resorts
The Villas at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel, another DVC development at Disneyland, also incurs a Transient Accommodations Tax. However, this tax is included in the owners’ annual dues and is charged at a significantly lower rate, probably due to different local tax laws.
Aulani, Disney Vacation Club Villas, is subject to a separate Hawai’i transient tax payable at check-in. At present, rates beyond 2023 are not available.
