    Question A new DL hotel tower name that links to past? Could be...

    New hotel tower name DOES link to past...
    Well, kind of... hear me out.

    As I'm sure most of you know the Disneyland Hotel tower names are being changed on August 13th (see this thread). Many of us see no need to change the names and erase the hotel's past. I am one of these people.

    But I was thinking about why the Bonita Tower would be renamed the Wonder Tower. Could it be that this is a nod to the former Wonder Bowl, the bowling alley that stood where the Simba parking lot is now?

    Think it's possible...or is it too outlandish? Or is it just too clever?

    Could be...but I think it's in tribute to the Cruise Ship that may be coming here for West Coast cruises. I was not familiar with the area around Disneyland before it was built, and to be honest not until I started driving myself out to the Park.

    I don't know, I just don't think Disney would name part of the hotel after an old bowling alley.......

    but that's just me

    I think it has less to do with a bowling alley, and more to do with the Cruise line coming out to So Cal in a couple of years.

    Disney's two current cruise ships are the Disney Magic and the Disney Wonder. Disney Cruise Line also has two new ships on order, the first has been rumored to be named the Disney Dream. Sounds like Disney confirmed their own poorly kept secret about the name of the new ship.

    No it's just more corporate 'synergy' being squeezed out of the year of a million yawns.
