I've been hoping that during the refurb they would get Murphy to do the bend it's head and neck down to the water line and spew fire across the water like in the original concept animation they had for him. This is just wishful thinking isn't it?
In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.
Disney parks blog announced a new water play area for the Disneyland Hotel.
So the towers will be getting new names:
The hotel’s three guest room towers will be renamed to reflect Disneyland park’s distinctive lands. The Dreams Tower, currently under renovation and scheduled to be completed in 2010, will become the Adventure Tower. The Wonder Tower, next to undergo transformation and slated for completion in 2011, will be the Frontier Tower, and the Magic Tower, which will be finished in 2012, will become the Fantasy Tower. A large marquee featuring classic artwork for Adventureland, Frontierland and Fantasyland will identify each tower.
So if a fourth tower is built, it will most likely become the Tomorrow Tower.

The new restaurant and bar facility will be 2 stories according the very small print on the rendering. I wonder if they'll completely tear down the Hooke's Point / Wine Cellar building, or if they'll use some of it?
Waterfalls are definitely gone
Very curious about how the face-lift to the exterior of the Goofy's Kitchen / Convention Center area will be handled.
Soooooooo glad to see Crock Bites go - that food was inedible. Still think that DLH needs a walk-up food service though, similar to Whitewater Snacks. Can't tell you how many times, while staying at the DLH, we've needed a quick bite to pick up.
I hope that the new 'Tahitian Terrace' restaurant will offer a high-end dining experience - meaning the food quality (Hooke's Point is very good). ABSOLUTELY LOVE the idea of bringing back the Tahitian Terrace feel!!!
Looks like they may be considering some sort of building in front of the north side of the Wonder tower? (the rectangle outline, shown with 2 different orientations)
