Anyone who’s visited Disneyland Resort in the past 5 or so years has noticed a number of empty lots and buildings surrounding the resort. Finally, some of these lots will be developed and will add 14 new hotels with a total of 3,770 new rooms to the area around Disneyland Resort. increasing the amount of new hotel rooms 19%.
The hotel room occupancy rate is up 10% in Anaheim. With so many older hotels, it will be nice to see new hotels coming near Disneyland Resort, as well as some refurbishment of other locations. Katella Ave and Harbour Blvd which are the main streets by Disneyland, have already been razed and plans are already started on 2 new hotels with drugstores. Additionally a Marriott Sprinhill Suites will be opening on Ball Road.
We will see the newest hotel opening as early as December of this year, with many more to follow. With so much construction and additions, it may be a bit crazy to get around the perimeter of the Disneyland Resort, but when construction is completed there will be many new hotels. Not only new hotels are breaking ground this year, there’s plans for a new waterpark just down the street from Disneyland Resort in Garden Grove. I can say that I have always been surprised with the lack of water parks open to the public near Disneyland. The only ones available are a distance away. Hopefully the water park will also be on the Anaheim Resort Transit line.
In research for this article, I learned that the lot where Boogie Nightclub and Flakey Jakes are, which have sat empty since 2006, was leased by Disney in 2009. Perhaps plans to add a 4th Disneyland Resort Hotel. No word yet, and no plans have been submitted to the city for building permits. But It would be nice to have another moderate or value Disneyland Resort Hotel.
Now you know that with all these new hotels coming, that it’s time to start planning your next trip to Disneyland, perhaps even planning a stay in the new hotel of your choice. I know just who to help you with this!
