    Re: Disneyland Hotel Mid 1980's

    Great photos as usual!

    From the first set of photos, the third photo of the lounge area - is that the Palm Court Lounge in the Marina tower? (Or whatever the lounge was called at that point in time?)

    Re: Disneyland Hotel Mid 1980's

    Thanks for all the pics!! That era is what I knew the DL Hotel as and all of its fun treasures. The Atari Center, the lounges, bars and restaurants. The smoke shop my dad would get his pipe tobacco at. The shops all around the area. It was awesome then, especially when you had a room that overlooked the Dancing Waters show. We would all get out on the balcony and watch it or even head over to the show itself.

    Re: Disneyland Hotel Mid 1980's

    One interesting thing done at the Disneyland Hotel in the 1980's, they converted some of the original Garden Rooms into suites with accompanying conference rooms. These would have been on buildings which were opened in 1956 in the second phase of guest accomodation structures....some of the earlier buildings.

    Re: Disneyland Hotel Mid 1980's

    This was without a doubt my favorite era in the hotel's history. Even though all the facilities were starting to appear incongruent from all the adding on, it still maintained so much to do, it was great... thanks for posting, Don.

    How about a couple of offbeat photos from the 80's. Wonder if Apple was represented at the computer show?

    Even back then my parents thought it was too expensive for us to stay there! The hotel my mom works at was still part of Best Western (they decided not to renew with BW this year) and at the time there was an employee discount. You don't see that in the Disneyland area Best Westerns anymore. I stayed at some hotels that are still there, demolished, or no longer part of the chain. Stovall's Inn, Cosmic Age Lodge, Galactic Motor Inn, Abby's Anaheimer Inn, Station Inn, Stardust, and Space Age Lodge (present day Stovall's Pavilions) are among the hotels I remember staying at. I remember some of the hotel shuttles for these places (like Station Inn) dropped you off at the Hotel Monorail Station.

    The Disneyland Hotel was always that pre-Disneyland day diversion. Usually we would walk, but when you got there you were always excited to be at the hotel. We always browsed the shops and even buy stuff. Various toys and plushes were available. Tshirts, coloring books, stationary, all sorts of stuff that made good souvenirs of Disneyland were available. I remember we would buy candy at Mickey's Corner, too. We would go the marina and waterfalls. I remember walking past the Garden Rooms and thinking they were the more expensive rooms. They just seemed like they would cost more than the tower rooms. No other hotel compared to the Disneyland Hotel.

    I love these old photo threads.

    Does anyone have any old pictures of the Monorail station from before the DTD days?
