Jim Lewis (President of DVC) apparently sent out an official release to DVC guides and employees announcing the expansion of DVC. Specifically, the Grand Californian in Disneyland.

This new structure; which is currently under construction will include 200 new hotel rooms and 50 two bedroom lockoff DVC units (Grand Californian Villas).

Nothing official has been announced to the public; however, I would imagine someone close to the ground (other fan sites) will report it soon.

An official press release to the public with more details is scheduled to be released on Oct. 9th.

What intrigues me the most is that this new building will combine regular guest rooms with DVC villas. This makes me wonder if this same scenario will occur at the new Contemporary building. discussions have been circulating for a while about the Contemporary building on whether it will be guest rooms (suites) or DVC units.

Here is an article that appeared in the Orange County Register:

Expansion planned for Disney's Grand Californian
Disney hotel will get 250 more units, including first vacation club villas.

ANAHEIM Disney is planning to expand the Grand Californian Hotel and Spa, its high-end lodge in the Disneyland Resort, by adding about 250 units, including the first vacation-ownership villas, the company is expected to announce today.

The expanded hotel would grow by 2.5 acres, stretching south of the hotel that opened in 2001 alongside Downtown Disney and Disney's California Adventure theme park. The Grand Californian already has 745 rooms.

The first Disney Vacation Club units on the West Coast 50 two-bedroom-equivalent villas would be part of the new area. The club is a vacation-ownership program that includes other Disney locations and associated members.

"This expansion underscores our commitment to growing and investing in both the Disneyland Resort and the Anaheim Resort Area," said Ed Grier, Disneyland Resort president, in a prepared statement.

Thought for a second this would be about the Contemporary (like Grand Contemporary Villas or something). Sounds like this DVC will be pretty nifty.

I'm betting on the Contemp being a combo as well.
