Aren't they already decided? I thought they were naming the DL Hotel towers the same as the cruise ships, so DREAM or DREAMS might be one of the new boats' names.
Hotel Name Game
Meanwhile, outside the parks, there's even more in the pipeline. The Disney Vacation Club (DVC) units that were slated to begin work this year at the Grand, and then put on hold while the DCA budget saga worked itself out, are now back on the front burner. The Disneyland Hotel also is slated for a massive makeover that would freshen up the 1960's era towers.
The first part of the hotel project is an easy one, and it begins later this month by ditching the names the current facility has had since it was built by the Wrather Corporation in the 1960's and 70's. The Marina Tower is to be renamed the Magic Tower, the Sierra Tower becomes the Dreams Tower, and the Bonita Tower, named for Jack Wrather's wife Bonita, is rechristened the Wonder Tower.
The attached convention center facilities all get new Disney names as well, with the El Camino conference hall renamed the Frontier conference hall, the Marina Ballroom becomes the Magic Kingdom Ballroom, the Marina Sundries shop becomes Donald's Gifts & Sundries, etc., etc.
While Disney history buffs may miss the connection to Walt's friends Jack and Bonita Wrather and that lesser known chapter in Disneyland history, the new names may make more sense to the vast majority of hotel and convention center visitors.
