Storytelling is at the heart of everything we do as Cast Members or Imagineers, and the new design elements incorporated into the Disneyland hotel are certainly no execption. From carpet patterns to costumes, every new detail at the hotel weaves together a story.
As you walk into the Fantasy Tower lobby,the Mary Blair artwork, bright blue lights and plush purple-and -blue carpeting create an instant connection to "it's a small world." Completing the theme, one of the gift shops has been renamed small world Gifts and Sundries. Guests waiting in the lobby can relax in Mad Tea Party-inspired chairs.
In front of the Frontier Tower, a geyser and waterfall pay tribute to the Mine Train through Nature's Wonderland, a Disneyland Park attraction that dates back to the 1960s. Entering the tower's lobby, a scale model of Big Thunder Mountain Railroad provides Guests with a glimpse of the magic they will experience in Frontierland. Jungle Cruise characters are incorporated into the design of the Adventure Tower.
The centerpiece of the hotel is the new E-Ticket pool, along with the D-Ticket pool and Monorail water slide, which opened in May and includes a replica of the iconic marquee that welcomed Guests to "The Happiest Place on Earth" from 1958 to 1989. Two new dining locations, Trader Sam's- Enchanted Tiki Bar and Tangaroa Terrace, also opened in May.
