    Why does the name Jimmy Johnson ring a bell?

    1965 also saw the complete refurbishment of all 306 Garden Rooms. Here are some great interior pics.

    The same company refurbished the Disneyland Hotel Lobby in 1965.

    The Hotel Bar was refurbished as well. I am posting a picture from the original layout in 1957 to the redecorated version in 1965.

    My god, that bar is fantastic!

    I would really love to see some stuff like that bar re-created in the hotel today.

    I never personally went into the Oak Room. Also, you learn something every day....the Oak Room must have opened in 1956 when the first restaurant wing opened at the Disneyland Hotel based on the ad below from 1971. I have material mentioning it only from the 60's. Must have been REALLY private during the 50's. The ad also mentions it is no longer a private club.

    BTW-there is an Oak Room at the Disneyland Hotel now which is in Steakhouse 55 (or whatever they are calling it now). I was priviliged enough to have dinner there just prior to D23 in 2011 with the Wrather family. What a wonderful night that was.

    I remember buying a round trip ticket on the monorail with my wife and young kids in the late 80s -early 90s. We would get our Disney fix and if we did it around 9:30 pm we would see the fireworks too. It was cheap and affordable for a young family.

    I used to do the same thing! Sure wish the round-trip was still available.

    These photos bring back more than memories -- they invoke the thing that was so cherished about the pre-90s Disneyland Hotel. It wasn't just the architecture, the shops, the beauty of the marina, or even the four-star customer service. It was an attitude, a spirit -- a "special something" exhibited by everyone on the staff. A feeling of personal warmth and genuineness that came from the Wrather family's ownership of the hotel. Sadly, it was noticeable the most when it was gone, not long after Disney management took over in 1988.
    "With the acquisition of Marvel and now of Lucasfilm,
    Disney may have finally found the grail. You don't need
    imagination or art. All you need is a brand."

    I shared this message with the Wrather family. Very well said and I am sure they will be touched by your words.
