Let me guess. With the economy rooms, you have the opportunity to stare at a brick wall.

The Disneyland Hotel goes a long way back, I think to the 1950s. Later, they added a 2nd, The Pacific- I'm not sure of the name. Then, The Californian was built at the same time the new park was added. I'm sure Paris, Tokyo and Hong Kong have their own hotels too.

A word of advice: if you ever stay at a Disney hotel, be sure to book your stay through Disney Travel. You'll get a much better room and overall better treatment than if you book through an outside agent.

I had a lovely view of the Anaheim sprawl.... I should have booked through Disney.

Some of the lesser rooms on the east side have good views, but they reserve those who book through Disney.

I'll be adding more thoughts to this thread as we go but here's an easy one. Time to return the treehouse to it's Swiss Family Robinson theme at Disneyland.

Huh? You mean they changed it? When and how? This is definitely news to me.

Following the release of the Tarzan movie, they remade it into Tarzan's Tree House. I think it should be returned to Swiss Family, too.

Cheroo!
I recently heard a podcast from someone with a really good Disney connection talking about a Mary Poppins attraction and this thread instantly came to my mind. There was (and still is I suppose) conceptual drawings done for this ride MANY years ago, but unlike your flying umbrella system, you would instead board carousel horses, do a lap around the carousel and then they would hop off like in the chalk scene, then you would visit scenes through the movie. Unfortunately the ride system wasn't feasible for crowds and the technology available at the time. It would be very interesting to see what they could do with this concept now.
