New Concept Art, Disney’s Revised Plans for the New Disneyland Hotel in Anaheim
Documents filed with the City of Anaheim show more renderings of the new Disneyland Hotel as well as specifics about its layout. The hotel will encompass 31 acres which were reclaimed from the western end of Downtown Disney, as well as the Disneyland Hotel Valet and Simba parking lots.
The 700 room hotel will have eight stories and will be spread across 4 distinct wings. In addition, the hotel will have 82,000 square feet of retail, dining, and entertainment space.
As you can see from the above photo, guests will be able to access the Downtown Disney monorail platform through the lobby of the hotel and ground level via Downtown Disney. In addition, many of the locations still open on the west side of Downtown Disney that remains open will stay that way after the hotel opens, like the Lego Store.
The third and seventh floor of the hotel will have a total of 17,000 square feet of retail, dining, and entertainment space. Namely the table service restaurant on the seventh floor, and a grill & bar by the pool on the third floor with more retail space. The remaining 65,000 square feet of retail, dining, and entertainment space will be on the ground floor and will be seen as an extension of Downtown Disney.
Other anecdotes from the documents include a pedestrian bridge that will connect the hotel lobby to the current monorail platform. The lobby of the hotel will be located on the third floor, which is considered the “main floor” of the hotel. The concierge lounge will be located in Wing 2 on the seventh floor as well.
The wings of the hotel will be situated as follows:
Wing 1: South of the Lobby
Wing 2: Northeast of the Lobby
Wing 3: North of the Lobby
Wing 4: Northwest of the Lobby
A five-story, 2,194 space parking garage is also being proposed where the current Simba lot sits now, featuring 693 valet spaces on the basement and first level and 1,468 standard spaces located on levels 2 through 5.
