The Disneyland Hotel is frequently the subject of rumors suggesting an eventual Disney Vacation Club addition.  It is one of only three Disney-owned hotels in Anaheim.  Following the 2009 expansion to Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa, the Disneyland Hotel stands as a logical destination for Disney's timeshare program.

The Disneyland Hotel is currently in the final stages of a 3 year refurbishment project during which all three of its tower buildings have been virtually re-built from the inside out, along with many resort common areas.

Construction walls limit access to some areas of the resort and do present challenges when moving about but that is a temporary situation.  The refurb project is expected to be completed in 2012.

All guest rooms are being updated to feature a 21st century level of comfort and styling expected by guests willing to pay Disney prices for their hotel stay.

Plush bedding and flat panel TVs are the norm in all guest rooms.  The headboards show off a little Disney magic, livening up the room with lights and music at the touch of a button.  The headboards could even serve as a nightlight for little ones.

Bathrooms are impressive chrome and tile with large showerheads and more than a few Mickey-themed touches.

Mickey even made his way into carpet patterns used throughout the resort.

In many ways, the stylings of the Disneyland Hotel are reminiscent of a current Disney Vacation Club property--the Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort.  Stylistically a DVC addition to the Disneyland Hotel would provide an attractive contrast to the Villas at Disney's Grand Californian Resort--providing more of a contemporary, modern feel as opposed to the warm Arts & Crafts look of the Grand Californian.

The Disneyland Hotel is a bit removed from the theme parks and would lack the easy access which is so welcome when staying at the Grand Californian.  But for a resort complex not blessed with an overabundance of space, it would be very surprising if Disneyland Hotel is not one day greating guests with a hearty "Welcome Home!"
