    Whenever we check in to the Hotel, I always say now is that the Bonita, the Marina or the Sierra Tower? Some cast members understand while others just say "excuse me?"

    It would be cool if you built a garden water fall that look similar to the old hotel's water falls and place the letters above it.

    Lol, I've also heard several guests (and CM's) that still refer to the trio as the Magic, Dreams, and Wonder Towers

    I never got used to calling them that either. I am friends with original Disneyland Hotel architect Al Nicholson (Al is 93) and he said it broke his heart when they first changed the names of the towers.

    I agree, I think that Fantasy, Adventure, and Frontier definitely fit the Towers much better than Magic, Dreams or Wonder ever did, the old names just didn't roll of the tongue well. If only there was a Tomorrow tower to round out the original opening day lands (excluding Main Street).

    When you compare news names to old, the newer ones just wreak of marketing fluff. They just don't have any realness to them if that makes sense.

    I plan on always referring to the towers by their original names: Sierra, Marina, and Bonita.

    Thank you. We have a lemon tree, two orange trees, grapefruit, nectarine, pear, apple and peach trees in our backyard. We had plums and apricots but both trees were over 100 years old and eventually rotted.

    Several years ago, I was given a piece of the chandelier from the Palm Court Lounge in the Disneyland Hotel Lobby. I'll dig it up and photograph it. Artifacts like these that were a physical part of the Hotel are so cool! My biggest regret is, not getting a piece of the ornamental steel that used to adorn the Disneyland Hotel. I heard they just threw it all away to the recycler.
