That's exciting. They're kicking into high gear for the final few months. Did you get any photos?

A person spends a lot of time and money making his basement look like Fantasyland exteriors from Disneyland. I see he even recreated Bench the Ride.

I still feel like this is Disney now firing back at the city. Disney desperately needs another hotel for their capacity needs.

^But do they desperately need a Four Diamond property or would a moderate resort better serve the area given that Grand Californian and the Disneyland Hotel technically cover the deluxe market?

They price all their hotels as four diamond, so if I was Disney I would still build the four diamond and lower the price of paradise pier hotel as the moderate option.

Completely agree. They 100% need another hotel. Otherwise, people will stay off property anyways.

This isn't a bad idea! Both the DL Hotel, and the Grand are actually 4 Diamond hotels already. And, any hotel built on that land will be a 4 Diamond Hotel anyways, because of it's location. I am really hoping that a new version of the hotel is announced after the election.

But, also, another moderate hotel would not be a bad idea either. But, I think they cold just expand the Pier hotel and build a new tower, with a different but connected theme. Like the Port Orleans in WDW which has a French Quarter area and a Riverside area.

^Yeah, Paradise Pier has always been an outlier since it wasn't originally a Disney hotel. Adding another Tower to it and doing more to "Disney" up the original tower would be a good idea as well. And moderate pricing would allow them to have more inventory to compete with the Hilton quality level hotels in the area.

That's a bummer that the hotel is getting axed. That end of Downtown Disney could really use something to add some life to it. Especially with Rainforest, ESPN Zone, and AMC sitting idle.

I wonder if they would consider expanding Downtown Disney south through the old AMC theaters and connecting it to Paradise Pier Hotel. It would make the resort side of things a bit more cohesive.
