Disneyland to open first new hotel in 20 years

Disneyland hotel in Anaheim

Disneyland is scheduled to open a new hotel on its Anaheim property, its first new hotel addition in 20 years. Walt Disney Imagineering, the same designers and engineers who came up with Disneyland’s attractions, will also design the new hotel. The construction is slated to begin in 2018, and the project is expected to be completed by 2021.

While there is no theme yet for the property, some of the amenities announced include a rooftop terrace, high-end rooftop restaurant, two pools, concierge service and a “water play area.”

The project, which would be the fourth hotel at the Disneyland resort, will be built on a 10-acre parking lot on the west end of Disney’s property.
