Disneyland is getting another and much needed resort hotel in 2021. This is exciting for multiple reasons. First, with on three on property hotels, the Disneyland Resort currently simply lacks enough rooms to meet demand. The current hotels book up very early and the price points are sky high in comparison to Disney World options. Its simple supply and demand. Hopefully, the addition of 700 new rooms will take some pressure off the current hotels and open up availability and lower room rates on the other hotels. Wishful thinking but fingers crossed.
Second, this should create a big time facelift to the west end of the Downtown Disney District. Current plans have the new hotel located basically on top of the monorail station in Downtown Disney right at the gateway to the Disneyland Hotel. There are rumors the hotel will have a Contemporary Hotel-Esque monorail station platform inside the hotel providing direct access for guests into Disneyland. Also, the ground floor will provide new top tier dining and retail spots. The upper level is planned to have a guest lounge and restaurant with fantastic fireworks views.

I couldn't be more excited for this addition. As a somewhat regular visitor to the Disneyland Resort without ever having the pleasure of staying on-property, I'm really hoping this new hotel makes availability and costs make more sense. We will be there later this year and will definitely get some pictures and snoop around for more info.
If you could theme this new hotel what would it be?
