    Fire at the Super 8 Motel near Disneyland - 360 evacuated

    Just saw on the news this morning that the roof of the Super 8 Hotel in Anaheim was on fire this morning. Nobody was seriously hurt, but some of the rooms have been rendered uninhabitable.

    Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...

    It is the one on Disneyland Drive, next to the ARCO on Ball.

    Here is a news story link, which does contain some photos.

    Thank goodness, I was getting frustrated not finding a link to give! (Who knew a fire was so un-newsworthy compared to Madonna riding a horse in NYC?)

    Oh how frightening!
    We stayed there on our very first trip to Disneyland some 8 or 9 years ago. I actually looked into it again for our upcoming trip next month since many of the closer hotels are sold out (over Veteran's Day weekend). I guess a few folks will be displaced in the upcoming weeks.

    We have stayed there, not a bad hotel.

    With it being a Thursday night in October I'm sure the hotel wasn't full.

    Thanks for the info, I will be sure not to book it for our November trip.

    So much for the hotel not being too full on a Thursday night in October.

    Hey, it is UEA week (All the Utah kids get off school).

    They had a 75 minute wait for Splash yesterday afternoon, and 50 minutes for Space.
