  • Disney Gallery --> Hotel Suite Rumor is Confirmed

    Check out this picture of the Dream Suite that has replaced the Gallery.
    http://www.2008disneydreamcatalog.com/
    The picture is on pages 6 & 7.
    It looks beautiful, but I am still questioning how they can have guests overnight in the Park.

    If this has been posted elsewhere, please excuse the redundancy.

      Glad we got to experience The Balcony several times and lunch on the patio.

      Very cool for the lucky winners.

            I guess it will be a wonderful experience for those who get to partake.
            I can't say I wouldn't jump at the chance to sleep in that magical place for one night.
            I will always miss the gallery, but time marches on...
            The artist rendering is certainly beautiful.
            Goin around the world...and back to Disneyland!

              I more question how they plan to do all their 3rd shift work with vehicles and construction style lighting in the area at all.

                I don't see how it would be difficult at all. I'm sure people would be thrilled at the chance to see the park after hours, if the comments on this board are any indication.

                  The advertising copy talks of the balcony view surely making Mr. Disney smile.

                  I wonder if the fact that Disneyland has closed an attraction that all guests were able to enjoy would have made him smile, too.

                  Closing to the general public access to the suite in order to offer exclusive access as a "prize" is an insult. The Royal Suite is not like the apartment in the firehouse. Guests have been able to enjoy the New Orleans Square space for over twenty years, and, during that time, said guests were able to smile at the balcony view, too. Now, they will be stuck on the ground looking up at what once was.

                  If Jay Rasulo spent some time at Disneyland, he might have realized the ill-will the decision to eliminate this attraction would engender.

                    Yeah, they'll be locked in there (under guard ?) all night an into the morning for security and safety reasons.

                      This is a disaster waiting to happen. Since most of the regular guests who come to Park now days have a mind-set that has no respect for private property or no consideration for others, I can see much damage and stolen items shortly after the first "winners" get to stay here. They take/break stuff from the rides now, what's to stop them from taking stuff from the rooms? Nothing. And it's not just the mind-set either; it's an attitude now that anything within reach belongs to "them" and they will take it or break it.

                      And how would you like to stay in there all night, locked in? Not me.

                      To lose the Gallery for something like this is the stupidest thing Rasulo has come up with yet. How could John Lassiter go along with this? I am very disappointed.

                        That rendering is the original Dorothea Redmond artwork from the apartment, I have the print on my wall. Who knows what the new look will be, but it makes me smile a bit to think that they're trying to be true to the original design.

                            As much as I hate losing 'veteran' attractions, I can't (uncharacteristically) whip up much emotion for the poor Gallery. Its only appeal to me was its original intent--to be a private refuge. Since it is returning to its originally designed purpose (a private area), I don't feel too upset about losing another storefront. I will miss the view, however--it was a good 'un.

                                  It would be interesting to see the park after hours, but I for one would not be interested in sitting in the middle of all of that 24/7.

                                    I noticed that too! The artwork is over 40 years old.

                                    The slim and trim couple in the sleek sharkskin suit and sheath dress with bouffant hairdo standing in the doorway is the big giveaway. For the 21st century you would need to add at least 50 pounds to those people, and put them in wrinkled Old Navy clamdiggers and a sloppy t-shirt for both the man and the lady. Plus add some tattoos. And put churros in their hands. And don't let the lady spend more than 2 minutes on her hairdo. Maybe have the man checking his BlackBerry and ignoring his family?

                                    Make those changes to the occupants, and we have the new Disneyland Dreams Suite!

                                      as much as i love that they are using original artwork for the disney gallery for the apartment its still sad to see something that was unique in the park that guests could visit. Now they have taken away another thing that had ties to walt disney that guests can not enjoy unless your one of the lucky winners.

                                        I know I'd surely love to win a night in that suite! It is sad to see the Gallery go, yet what they will put in its place looks great!

                                        Also ... did anyone see the Finding Nemo dinner dream? Pages 16-17 of the same link, that's something else I wouldn't mind getting.
