    I remember once, many years ago, I was exploring the Disneyland Hotel and happened upon a section that had a definite Asian design aesthetic to it. Does anyone remember that or know what I'm talking about? If possible, could someone please post some photos of it? Thanks.

      That would have been Seaports of the Pacific on the Marina waterfront, an international bazaar with one-of-a-kind imports. It was a long building on a pier above the water, with architectural styles from different Pacific nations. It was on the south side of the Marina, running east-west, with the Horseshoe Falls near the east end and the Dancing Waters area on the west end.

      From Don Ballard's The Original Disneyland Hotel blog:

      For the summer season of 1980, the 25th Anniversary of the Disneyland Hotel, the Seaports of the Pacific shopping area was added to the marina. Under construction since February, it replaced what had been the artisans market. Ed Ettinger, the project's supervisor, explained, "What we've developed is a living theater consisting of those special environments associated with exotic ports of trade in the Pacific Basin." Side by side were an Indonesian pagoda blue tile roof, an Australian weathered tin roof, a Polynesian bamboo roof, and a Latin American red mission-tile roof...a wide variety of colors and textures. Staffed by authentic personnel, the Seaports was a mingling of accents and cultures. In the International Bazaar were to be found an arts and crafts market and shops of imports from the South Seas. Mimes, magicians, and strolling musicians entertained at this international bazaar. Sausalito Sue, a rustic cocktail barge, floated close by on the marina. Entered by means of a wooden ramp, it offered drinks and snacks.

      In the photo below, it's the multi-facade building running left-right on the far side of the Marina.

          Mr. Wiggins, that's great information, but what I'm remembering is more along the lines of actual hotel rooms. It would have been later than 1980, since I never actually explored the hotel until at least 1985 or later.

            I don't remember that kind of decor in the rooms of the towers where I stayed from the 70s through 90s, but I never stayed in the original Garden Rooms. I dropped a PM with a link to your question to Micechat member oldholtelguy, Don Ballard, who's the top expert on this subject. If anyone can answer the question, he can!

              Sorry, had to laugh. I read the title of this thread and then you're asking for pictures from the '90s...I must be too old. I was thinking you wanted something from the '60's/'70s. Ha! '90s

                ^ Not to nitpick, but "the old Hotel" is the common reference for the DLH before the '99 makeover. The "original Hotel" is sometimes used to refer to the pre-Marina (pre-1970) DLH.
