    But won't that view still be seen by guests staying on that particular side of the hotel? But I do agree that it frames the Tokyo Disneyland Station pretty well and will be a much nicer sight than the city (though it wasn't much of a problem before).

    You can bet that the rooms at the back of the hotel with the crappy view of Urayasu will cost at least a hundred bucks a night less than those in the front of the hotel with a view of Tokyo Disneyland.

    Those rooms will be good for people who want to enjoy the luxury of a Disney Hotel but also want to save money. The view of a hotel room significantly affects the rate; just look at the Hotel MiraCosta. The rooms on the Porto Paradiso Side cost over $100/night more than the ones on both the Venice or Tuscany Side. But I'm one of those people who likes to splurge, and I'd take the premium view over saving a few hundred dollars any day.

    So, views really are important.

    Perhaps, PATMAGIC, pussnboots, and Malin are the kind of people that rent the cheaper rooms.

    I would be more disturbed by this building if it was visible from inside Disneyland, which is intended to be another world in every respect, but Disney Sea's borders with the Outside World have always been a little less defined. Of course, I still don't like the fact that this view exists, though.

    Sorry, but which view are you talking about? The picture of the building I posted, or the new Tokyo Disneyland Hotel?

    The Spa building is the one to which I'm referring. The fact that it is visible from within Disney Sea is bad, but being able to see it from Disneyland would be even worse.

    Hopefully, Disney Sea will be able to control the view better soon.

    Hmm...

    It looks very Mediterranean, especially with all the people with umbrellas and bundled up like it's about to snow!

    Speaking of snow, the white stuff fell at the Parks last January.

    In my opinion Tokyo DisneySea is the crown jewel of all the Disney parks. The single best example of the talent of Walt Disney Imagineering and over 20 years of design work. It's a masterpiece of design, a park you can enjoy without even going on a single attraction. It's that beautifal.

    So in respect of the life's work of all those artists, any outside 'disturbances' that threaten the intended total immersion effect are of concern to me. I certainly 'have a life', but this isn't any stupid theme park. It's much, much more.

    Also of concern... they need to make that area on the big steamship that used to be off-limits (aka... only for the old "Sail Away" cast prep) off-limits again. It's TERRIBLE show to be able to see the generators/bolts/theming holes from the backside angle of the ship. (Not to mention the illusion of the entire park being on a forced perspective with the water level and bay DESTROYED by the access road being clearly visable)

    I mean sheesh, this would be no big deal except that this park is so detail-obsessed that the backstage building areas are just as detailed, themed, and lavish as their onstage counterparts.

    I agree. I was never a big fan of being able to see the S.S. Columbia from the monorail either but what can they do? Have the monorail go through a tunnel when it gets to the border of Tokyo DisneySea?

    That's been my idea all along. As the monorail leaves BaySide Station, it descends into a tunnel that is actually an aquarium holding thousands of fish and other sealife. It would seem like you're going underwater. Inside, the aquarium tunnel has 5-6 sections showcasing the sea life of Japan and the world OR the various ports of call from TDS. At the end of the tunnel, the monorail emerges out to the area just past the Columbia.

    Brilliant! The monorail could in fact be considered an attraction if this addition were to come to life and could even justify the small fee you pay for the monorail tickets. It would make the monorail ride so much better.

    I suggested in the Disneyland forum that its new monorail trains incorporate liquid-crystal windows that can be made opaque electronically. In that way, the views of backstage and Harbor Boulevard could be controlled better.
