        We were sent over there with the message that only we would defend Disney quality.. We learnt quickly that the Japanese culture speaks to a level of quality that is hard to comprehend. They were all unbelievably skilled and willing to do the right thing.

                      Exactly.

                      If I had a Wayback Machine, I'd stay at this hotel every time I visit DL.

                        Me too. Sophisticated. It doesn't look like a giant day care center.

                        Thank you so much. I love your threads too.

                          Ahhh, the memories are flooding back. This was such a fun hotel at the time. Between the paddle boats, RC cars and boats, Atari arcade center and the pools, Dancing Waters and the waterfalls, it just was a happening place. Really was a park without being one.

                              I never stayed there as a kid, just remember seeing it off to the side of the what seemed like the biggest parking lot ever (at least to a 5-6 y/o). I had no idea it had all that.

                                  Thanks for the photos. It brings back too many memories for my wife and I. The dancing waters show, boats in the lagoon, the water falls, shops, and dining was a real treat without paying to go inside the magic kingdom.

                                      Thank you for posting. I went looking for pics of the 80's online and found far less than I thought would be available. I had to resort to sifting through old photo albums but yours were 10x better.
