The Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California has announced more upgrades to its ongoing renovations of the Disneyland Hotel. The changes will include building a new pool and water play area, renovating an existing pool, opening a new restaurant and bar, and re-theming of the hotel's three guest room towers.
The changes will restore the original midcentury style of the classic hotel. The hotel's original two-story bungalows were built in 1955, just months after Walt Disney's first theme park opened its gates and the first tower was erected in 1962. The biggest changes will be around the pool area which will have a new water play area. "Disneyland" will be spelled out in blocks atop a platform supporting two water slides. At each slide's entrance will sit a replica Monorail Car that guests will glide through on their way to the water below. The larger of the two main slides sits 26 feet high and stretches 187 feet until it plunges into a splash pool. The second slide is 13 feet high and 112 feet long. For younger children the area will include a third two-lane mini slide that sits just 3 1/2 feet high and is 19 feet long.
