As we get closer to the projected completion date of 11-11-11, the Disneyland Hotel’s multi-year refurbishment is really starting to look good.
In the main lobby of the Fantasy Tower, the check in desk has been moved to the opposite side. The desk appears to be temporary while construction continues across the hall.
The walls are down between the new E-Ticket Pool and the Adventure Tower. This is great for guests staying in the Frontier Tower who are no longer forced to walk around the Adventure Tower to get to their rooms.
The whole area is very wide open now. Unlike before, the pool entrances are on each side. This provides a great open view of the entire area, instead of the stairs and tall fence that was once here.
This is going to look amazing at night!

Environmentality? Three environmental groups say no!
The Mateel Environmental Justice Foundation, Ecological Rights Foundation and the Center for Environmental Health environmental groups, have been handing out pamphlets today on Harbor Blvd near the pedestrian entrance to the Disneyland resort. Their complaint? They claim they have uncovered evidence of high levels of lead in fixtures around the parks. These groups have used self testing kits that have allegedly shown unsafe levels of lead on railings, stained glass windows and drinking fountains around the parks. Basically they have been testing most of the brass surfaces.
The groups have filed a lawsuit and are now seeking a court injunction to force Disney to either cover these surfaces or post warnings about them.
The Muppets opens November 23rd!
I hope you enjoyed this week’s update. But before you leave, here’s a video I recently put together of Mickey’s Soundsational Parade using the actual high quality soundtrack!
A lot of work goes into these photo reports and the entire blog, there is NO way I could do it without your continued support!
