My disneyland Mice Chat/Visions Fantastic Post
Welcome to the Disneyland 2.0 Blue Sky Thread!
I think that overall the resort seems like a hodgepodge with not much else to do besides go to the parks. I think htat it is important to have more hotels, more diversions, and another theme park. Let's plunge into the hotels, shall we?
The only current hotel staying the Grand Californian Resort due to the fact that it fits with California. The Disneyland Hotel transforms into two hotels: Aloha Inn and Unlce Sam's Wild West Bed and Breakfast. The Aloha Inn has a tropical and Hawaiian theme with a restaurant on a small beach, a Lilo and Stitch character breakfast and huge leis on top of the roof. Uncle Sam's has a Wild West theme with a saloon, a Toy Story character breakfast, and a small petting zoo.
Replacing the Paradise Pier hotel is the Poco Loco Resort, a Mayan/Aztec resort with a large pool area, a cantina, and Aztec turrets surrounding the building.
Continuing down is the Lake Disneyland area, featuring three hotels and a lake. An upscale Boardwalk on the lake connects two hotels. The first hotel is the Disneyland Hotel, in the style of the Paris and Hong Kong hotels with ornate decor and a Peter Pan-themed pool area. The third hotel, Mon Ami, has a French atmosphere feturing a beauty and the Beast-themed wing and a can-can sohw. The final one is a West Coast version of the Yacht and Beach Club resort.
Next to the Anaheim Convention Center (would be bought by Disney) is the La Mediterennia Hotel, a hotel themed to an Italian Villa with a canal running through it and a theatre featuring Cirque du Soleli show saluting Disney and its films.
The second in-park hotel was the Toontown Towers, behind the Toontown area of Disneyland. You enter through the Gag Factory, visit Barbie's Closet, and meet the classic Disney characters. Imagine a caricature of a 1920's Hollywood hotel.
Next to DTD 4 (formerly the GardenWalk) is the New York Hotel, an upscale boutique hotel featuring a Times Square restaurant, an ice skating rink and a Statue of Liberty replica in the central atrium.
Beside the third theme park are the Babwe Suites, an African-themed hotel for families.
A Ticket Center by the main parking garage with a picnic area and a main PeopleMover station for this side of the resort. 2 PeopleMover tracks are going to be built in the resort with about a total of 2 main stations (TTC and Central Plaza East) and 19 stations (Uncle Sam's, Aloha Inn, Poco Loco, Yacht Club, Mon Ami, California Adventure-Nautical Bay, Imagineering Academy, Cirque Theatre, La Mediterennia, Convention Center, DCA Parking, DTD 4 Parking, DTD 4, Disneyland-Muppet City, Cirque Theatre-East, Babwe Suites, and Third Theme Park-American Avenue).
A building by the Convention Center is labeled on the map as the Imagineering Academy. It is home to a new Preview Center, Imagineering hands-on projects, and offices for Imagineers.
Downtown Disney is expanded beyond DCA's main entrance, going toward the East Resort. There is a pedestrian walkway to the 4th section (GardenWalk and New York Hotel).

The third theme park is kinda like a World Showcase, but with more rides and each land is divided by continents. Ride through the Great Wall of China, tour the rainforests of Brazil, meet your favorite characters in their specific countries (like Mulan in China, Simba in Africa, and Belle in France), and stop at the Globe, a large sphere in the middle of the park.
Any other questions?
