  • [Question] Disneyland Hotel Reopening?

    Does anyone know why the Disneyland Hotel has no reopening date yet? Are they waiting for Phase 4 or is there a another reason?

    supposedly because they know demand will be low. So to keep options/costs at a minimum they opened one premium hotel, and one "value" (if you can call it that )

      I read a rumor about room renovations and a possible reopen in early October.

        My guess is the renovations. This way you don't have to worry about guests and construction workers mixing. Just a guess though.

          Since Resort guests will have priority on park reservations...I find it hard to believe that demand for onsite rooms will be low...I would expect quite the opposite.

            That's not officially confirmed. In addition, GCH and PPH won't reopen until July 23rd(tentatively), meaning that during the 1st week, it will be a free-for-all for reservations.

                Honestly though. Everyone says resort guest priority is not happening cause Florida isn’t giving hotel guests priority but there’s 30,000+ Disney owned rooms in Florida versus a little over 1,200 (until DLH Reopens then it’s 2,300+) rooms when the parks reopen in California. Rooms in Florida are from a couple hundred a night in value resorts to deluxe at over 500 plus a night.

                California pretty much charges deluxe prices for all 3 of their hotels. So to say someone in California would have to pay $500-900 a night to LOOK AT the park and possibly not be allowed in would literally give no one incentive to pay the extra $ to stay in a Disney property when they could stay across the street and save that money if they have the same chance of getting into the park but if Disney wants to make the most money back that they can while this limited capacity thing happens they’ll definitely say resort guests can get into the parks so that you’ll pay the extra money to pretty much be guaranteed admission.

                  Disney does not list priorty enterance anywhere in their reopening procedures. There are 2 likely reasons as why DLR won't do that:

                  1. Unlike other theme parks, Disney has done their rollout procedures slowly. By keeping their hotels closed longer, it delays the immediate surge of out of town guests. Unlike APs, who can get 'blocked out', there's nothing to stop out-of-towners returning, unless you don't offer lodging at 1st.

                  2. If Disney did offer priorty entrance for hotel guests, it would cause unintentional PR backlash, as they could be accused of price gouging and controling the market.(Shocker!)

                  Unlike Fastpass or Magic Mornings/Early Entry, which are optional, reservations are not. And by offering a 'Priority Entry', then it could be implied that the only guarantee of entry, is to book a Disney hotel room. Hence, the gouge.

                    True, I don’t disagree with that. However with Disney being a business how do they justify making you pay more to stay on property if you have as much of a chance to get into the park as the guy at the Best Western? Sad to say but the chance of bad PR and backlash hasn’t stopped Disney before from doing anything.

                      Without guaranteed admission to the parks every day someone stays on property, at considerable cost, Disneyland is really shooting themselves in the foot. They are working against themselves on this. Remarkably shortsighted business decision.

                        Yeah, it makes no sense from a business standpoint. With this issue and the confusion over AP status, I'm wondering if it's the result of mid-management punting (flailing?) while they wait to see what Ken wants to do, who may be waiting to see what Josh wants to do, who may be waiting to see what the 2Bobs want to do... while at the same time everyone's up to their chins dealing with the looming opening and trying to function with a reduced staff. The lines of communication & authority aren't the most clearly defined in the best of times, much less now with a major transition of execs and the budget crisis and the reopening all colliding at the same time. In other words, a giant version of the "Who's On First" routine -- except without the comedy.

                        it combines fantasy and history, adventure and learning,
                        together with every variety of recreation and fun,
                        designed to appeal to everyone."
