    Is the Disneyland Hotel still under construction?

    I could really use some help.
    Im considering a stay ( just one night) and even though I've searched google, I keep getting conflicting info about the hotel construction. One site said it would be done spring 2011, another said 2012.

    Anyone know where I could get recent photos of the progress?
    I called the reservation center and I got the run a round.. they kept trying to sell me on different themed towers at the hotel but when I asked for the differences and which tower was better, they refered me to the website.
    I guess they are not allowed to give opinions?

    I also heard that the balconies are gone for good? And if you request a balcony you are put in the tower that is "under referbishment"

    I really have my heart set on staying here but I keep reading bad reviews on trip advisor.
    Thanks for the help.

    Each tower will be different at a different time. The final tower will be complete in 2012 but Frontier tower just opened.

    Thanks! Do you think I should pay extra to stay in the frontier tower? Or is it just as magical in the old towers?

    Or do you think the construction will ruin the experience? Should I stay@ the paradise pier instead?

    Re: Is the Disneyland Hotel still under construction?

    Pardon this response as I'm not sure on each of the tower names.

    That said, as I understand things the rooms in two of the three towers are complete. The lobby reno in one of the three towers is done with one of the others still being worked on. (I was just there the week of May 15th.)

    The main tower (with the check-in lobby) is renoing all of its rooms at this time.

    The spring 2011 time you see was for the new dining and monorail pools in the courtyard while the 2012 date is the overall completion of the tower rooms and lobbys.

    Without the tower names that probably doesn't help much but hopefully a bit.

    Its okay, you're all better off than I! I haven't been to disneyland since, I think- the submarine ride was still in operation!
    thanks for the link to all the pics.
    now, im really in a pickle. I've got to decide if it is worthwhile to go during construction or maybe stay else where. Do you know of any recent reviews on the dl hotel? You guys are so savvy I trust your opinion a lot more than the trip advisor people.

    Is the Grand Californian an option? I think they are through construction.

    the submarine ride is still there, they are just yellow.

    I can't give you an opinion about staying at the Disneyland Hotel, I usually stay outside the resort.

    You know, for what it's worth, I've never been ab;e to afford to stay on property .... but the day I can I will be staying at the DLH. Even if EVERY building was doing reno at the same time. It's a dream I have had since I was kid. BUT if I were not passionate about that particular hotel.... I'd stay at the PP since it will probably be a lot quieter than staying at the DLH (even if you're not in reno room). It kinda depends on what you're looking to get out of the experience.

    Re: Is the Disneyland Hotel still under construction?

    If you google disneyland hotel renovations, you will get a couple images of the new rooms. In my opinion it would really be worth it to stay in a renovated DLH room!! I hear the headboards for the beds play music!!!!
    I am actually planning a trip for the holiday season in November to stay there. I stayed there in 2009 and it was nice, but the new rooms are waaay better (plus goofys kitchen is the best). Hope that helped! Have fun!

    Re: Is the Disneyland Hotel still under construction?

    The hotelís three guest room towers will be renamed to reflect Disneyland parkís 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.

    I copied and pasted this from the disney website blog (It looks like frontier tower and adventure tower are completed : )
