This album will be updated frequently to show you the progress made as the hotel is being built for the next two years or so... Here is the first set of photos..taken in late feb and early march 2006.. Enjoy!

    Thanks TDLFan for the pictures. After seeing the level of detail in the MiraCosta and TDS I can't wait to see this hotel once it is finished. Even the construction walls are detailed.

    Looking at how high those drills are that view from inside the enterance plaza is going to change forever once the steel goes up.

    Is that giant ferris wheel visible form anywhere inside?

    Those drills are for piling the concrete support collums into the ground that keeps the thing standing.

    Yes...
    I know...wrong word but the point is that they are visible from inside the plaza means a 9 story hotel will be very visible...

    Yes, but that won't be any different that DLP, where the DLP Hotel towers above the Main Street Station and actually frames Main Street quite nicely when you look down from the Hub's end of the street. So that doesn't bother me. Besides... with the current World Bazaar design, it'd be impossible to see the TDL Hotel from underneath the canopied area of World Bazaar. You would have to walk to the front (outdoor) plaza to see this hotel from inside TDL. Also, given the not so wonderful train tracks and condominiums just in front of TDL's main entrance.. having this new hotel there can only enhance the view north from the park's main entranceas it will block any unpleasantries that currently destroy the look of the area outside TDL.

    Anyways....

    Photo album has been updated with pics taken on April 15th and 17th. New on this update... the "ditch", the "sample" wall, the "other" new hotel nearby and the sunset over Tokyo.
    Enjoy.

    This newscast clip fell upon my lap, courtesy of friends Aquafamily and Sore De? from another site. You may have to copy and paste in order to play. Be aware!! You will have to fast forward to 14 mins into the video, where a three and a half minutes report from the groundbreaking ceremonies for the TDL Hotel shows.. They show renderings from inside the hotel as well as other thigs around the resort... including a trip down memory lane to opening day 1983.. The report is in japanese but worth looking. Enjoy!

    Don't forget to fast forward 14 mins into it.
