New Disney Hotel Coming to Disneyland Resort in 2021

Big news today at the Resort!  A new Disney Resort hotel is on its way to Disneyland, with construction set to begin in Summer 2018 and complete in 2021!  The 700 room hotel will change the West End of Downtown Disney as a new "Gateway" to the Resort for both hotel guests and local visitors.  According to the Disney Parks Blog, it will feature nature in every aspect, from lush landscaping to dynamic dining and gathering places. It will also serve as a host location for the Disneyland Monorail station, which will be incorporated into the hotel itself.  Garden lined walkways will also connect all 4 Disney Resort Hotels - Disneyland Hotel, Paradise Pier Hotel, Grand Californian, and the new hotel. It is expected to dramatically change the West End of Downtown Disney and create more of a Resort=like feel and Grand Entrance into the Resort area.  

This development replaces the Eastern Gateway project that was on the books, in which Disney was trying to build a parking structure and bridge on the other side of the Resort over Harbor Boulevard.  That project is cancelled and this project is a replacement. It is reported that existing businesses that will be impacted including Rainforest Cafe, ESPN Zone, Earl of Sandwich, and Starbucks are being reached out to in order to keep them on property or make accommodations, perhaps within the hotel or with relocation in the Resort.  We are excited to see what comes with this new development!
