After several months of work, including purging the old furnishings and interiors. The in-depth transformation of Disneyland Hotel – the flagship icon located at the entrance to Disneyland Park – has begun.
Disneyland Paris donated more than 1,500 pieces of hotel furniture to three charitable organizations.
Disney is also moving forward with it’s strategy of integrating intellectual property into all projects.
The new hotel concept relies heavily on franchises and storytelling.
When it reopens, the five star Hotel will feature a royal princesses and princes theme. The rooms and suites will be inspired by animated classics such as Beauty and the Beast, Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty, as well as more recent films such as Tangled and Frozen.
Expect to find touches like this Tangled-inspired mirror in the redesigned rooms.
The hotels interior is being completely stripped and updated. Technological advances will play a large role, from online check-in to in-room connectivity.
The boutique, fitness areas, pool, spa and gym will all be expanded.
Young hotel guests can also look forward to aPrincess for a Day experience (Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique like experience).
The culinary offering will be extend into the lobby. Rumor has it a new Ladurée stand will be featured in the lobby.
An additional lounge, offering food and drink options, will also be created.
The hotel’s exterior will retain its iconic Victorian look. The facades, roofs and woodwork will be completely refurbished, as well as the hotel’s parking area and entry area.
No timeline has been given on the re-opening but it’s unlikely that it will be completed in 2022.
