It sounds wild, but if they are thinking of imploding the Disneyland Hotel (And I'm not saying they are....)
Would there be enough space to build a 3rd Gate, or mini Westcott right there where the Disneyland Hotel and Towers is? Perhaps a wholly new hotel could be built inside the new Park, or a brand new Disneyland Hotel where the Timon Lot is now....or some other place.
A Third Gate where the Disneyland Hotel stands right now, would be very convenient and the proximity to the monorail/Downtown Disney.
The Strawberry Patch is kind of out of the way, and the need for shuttles etc...
