Since yesterday I was comparing different versions of the Tower of Terror attraction, I thought it might be interesting to compare the disneyland hotels around the world.
Starting backwards, we'll present you with the new Tokyo Disneyland Hotel. It opens in April, 2008. It follows the Victiorian model that is used for much of Disney theme park design. While it looks simular to the other resort hotels, it has some unique aspects of it's own. The center dome and blue roof being the main difference.
Here we have the Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel. Again, this one follows the Victorian motif and you can clearly see that it was modeled after Walt Disney World's Grand Floridian. Now if they can just get enough guest to fill it...
This is the Disneyland Hotel Paris. It's lovely, and has the great feature of being the first Disneyland Hotel to be situated right in front of the park(Tokyo Disneyland Hotel will do this as well).
And here is the Grand Floridian, the hotel that was the great inspiration for all the others. I know it doesn't contain the "Disneyland Hotel" name, it isn't even called "Walt Disney World Hotel", but it is considered the flagship hotel of WDW. So even without the name, it technically IS their version of the Disneyland Hotel.
And last, we have the original. The Disneyland Hotel in California. This one was built before Disney owned the hotel and it shows in the design. There is very little "Disney" in the original hotel. My hope is than they build a new Disneyland Hotel(Mictorian style) and then tear this one down and expand Downtown Disney where it once was/is...
Right now, we know that the Grand Californian is going to get an expansion of DVC units. There is talk of a new hotel behind DCA and even some rumors about DVC or hotel units inside the park. But no talk about giving us a distinctive "Disney" Disneyland Hotel...
