    These rooms similar to the new Contemporary rooms IMO, and look simply fantastic! The headboard looks brilliant and the fiber optic fireworks sound gorgeous.

    NNL and I will have to stay here again.

    What he said!
    The room looks so cool and inviting!
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    Re: Disney announces multi-phase Disneyland Hotel renovation beginning in August

    “We are excited to embark on the largest and most extensive renovation of one of Disney’s classic hotels,” said Disneyland Resort President Ed Grier.
    Am I the only one that thinks this is a bad idea? I agree that the hotel needs a serious freshening but IMO DLH is not a good use of space. This renovation will do nothing to increase capacity. I would rather see them demo the whole thing and build a new DLH that rivals the one in Japan.

    Absolutely stunning. I love it.

    But are they still going ahead with the "mid-century modern" decor? I didn't see a mention in the press release and I was looking forward to that.

    Jeeze everything the park's do now is "multi-phase", just get it done once and be done with it.

    “This renovation provides us with the opportunity to bring new magic to this historic hotel, which enables us to enhance the Disney experience that our guests have come to expect. “It also reinforces our ongoing commitment and investment in the Anaheim Resort District..."

    This is my favorite quote.

    So basically that's why they are doing this. Reinforcement...

    Bad for capacity and bad for the people who work there. Doing it in phases is a smart move to minimize the inconveniences, yet still have money coming in from the hotel.

    Also, if they closed to renovate now, where would all the CMs go? They couldn't shift them all to other places, could they?

    Uh-oh...

    Yesterday I booked five nights at DLH for September. Today I discover it is going to be a construction zone. Color me not so thrilled at this news.

    Well, at least there will be progress reports posted here so I will know what to expect...

    So, the hotel overall will get a remodel? New shops/eateries/pool? Fantasy Waters gone forever? How about the overall theme: Mictorian or retro?

    This isn't being done to add space or capacity. The sole reason they are doing this is because those hotels are in a dire need for a seismic retrofit. The fact that they are sprucing up the design is secondary, and a nice side effect, to the prime reason they have to do this.

    Sad to see the faux balconies and the sliding glass doors disappear

    It's such a wonderful feature of the rooms. I really don't like hotel rooms that don't give you a window or a sliding door to the outside. Sometimes hotel rooms REALLY need to be aired out! Not just recirculate all the air within the building.
