Disneyland fans take heart, the Disneyland Resort is opening in phases and the Disneyland Hotel will soon be reopened with fantastic renovations, including corridor flooring featuring new patterns inspired by the art of Mary Blair, who was the Small World artist and concept artist for several Disney animations including Peter Pan and Cinderella. During the hotel’s hiatus, upholstery and fabrics in guest rooms and other areas were refreshed and updated, and guest room carpets now feature a fun new fireworks pattern.
The Disney Parks Blog recommends staying in the Fantasy Tower, stating “the Fantasy Tower is enchanting, where the nostalgia of Disneyland, touches of pixie dust and “hidden” Mickeys meld with the hotel’s mid-century modern design. Initially, the Fantasy Tower will be the first Disneyland Hotel tower to reopen.”
The Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar and Tangaroa Terrace will also be opening July 2, an popular immersive bar inspired by the Jungle Cruise, and Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar fits right in with the Adventureland theme. Trader Sam’s lounge menu items feature unique versions of Asian and Pacific Island favorites like the enticing Poke Bowl, Tonkotsu Ramen, and a Hawaiian Platter. The drink menu has several exotic choices, too, including a “Tiki Tiki Tiki Tiki Tiki Rum” that sounds like a perfect blend of fruits, spices, and creamy coconut.
Disney Parks recommends using the mobile order service on the Disneyland app** for added convenience at Tangaroa Terrace and the Coffee House.
