    Re: 02-05-07 Disney to Build Del Coronado-Inspired Hotel at Anaheim Resort

    WOW great read! My hopes and dreams for the Peopel Move seemed to have finally been idealized! Now the whole new hotel issue great concept but why didnt they design it like the hotle in Hong Kong? The Hollywood Hotel?

    Re: 02-05-07 Disney to Build Del Coronado-Inspired Hotel at Anaheim Resort

    Nice to hear about things that are being talked about.
    But HOPEFULLY that all this is, because the negative
    impact of the would be far worse than the positive.

    As mentioned already, by removing, or even reducing
    the east shuttle area, you are going to create enemies
    of ALL the hotels that use shuttles for the park, not
    to mention all the guests that use that transportation.
    You can forget about all the "Good Neighbor" bookings
    that occur now.

    Using the Coranado Hotel for a Hollywood Entrance is
    EXTREMELY out of Place! Doesn't match the theme at
    all. And as someone already mentioned, that type of
    theme is much more compatable with the Paradise Pier
    Beachy area. It needs a "beach front" not a Hollywood
    Toony Backlot neighbor. I really don't believe this
    whole idea has been thoroughly thought through!

    Taking Land AWAY from DCA is unthinkable, IF they want
    to grow and expand this park! No One in their right mind
    should be thinking about using Hollywood and Dine Space
    for a mini hotel. Right now, they need to be thinking about
    adding more attractions in the Backlot, and with so much
    of the Hollywood area already Tooned-up, they should go
    with it. Now that Monsters is open, add another kiddie
    dark ride in the Millionaire Building. And in addition, Hollywood
    and Dine was so big to begin with cut it in half, and Turn
    Half into another kiddie Dark ride, and then open the other
    half as a restaurant, again. That would certainly bring
    in the crowds.

    Again, I really can't believe this plan is under any real
    consideration.

    HUH? The REAL "Del" is two hours away, why build a copy?

    When they built the Haunted Mansion in Florida, the completely changed the style of the house because plantation-style mansions were too typically Southern and they wanted something a bit more "exotic". I wish Disney would use some of their former thought process when future planning.

    Erm.. the Del Coronado has already inspired the Grand Floridian at WDW and the Disneyland Hotel at HKDL. Do we really need another Del Coronado copycat at a Disney resort? Really? Is it the only beautiful hotel in the world that we can be 'inspired' from?

    If they wanted a hollywood-type/kind/themed hotel why not build a copy of the Chateau Marmont ... At least it would simply go in with the land. I like the idea of a nice hotel, but like I stated above, the theming of victorian doens't fit HPB.

    Hey Chuck, thanks for the update... I was hoping for more details...

    The AIA just released the Del Coranado as being the second most admired Structure in California, the first being the Golden Gate Bridge... Also on that list is the Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Transamerica Piramid, the Awaniee Lodge in Yosemite...

    It is the most admired Hotel from an Architectural stand point in the United States...

    FWIW, Marcie @ MI posted today that "the rumor is baseless." She mentioned that Baxter did propose plans for a Victorian-themed hotel, which has now been "completely dropped." And plans for a boutique hotel south of ToT have been put on hold.

    Sounds as though Mr. O is working with old info.

    I think we need Celebrety Disney Wrestling staring "Killer Koening", "Audacious Oberleitner", "Mercurial Marci" and "Lascivious Lutz".

    It pains me to admit this but I'm not to familiar with the board members over at MI - there's just too many boards and forums to keep up with and besides what better one to read in depth than MiceChat to say well informed.

    Would you mind posting a link to the post you're referring to?

    Thanks

    Thanks for the heads up. I had no idea we'd generated five pages of debate over there. Who knew a little hotel could stir up so much discussion.
