    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.

        You are talking about the Oriental Gardens which were a portion of the original five guest room structures. I have some great photos as well as information on that.....if I could only find the time to post them. Let me see what I can do here.

                Great photos, Don! Definitely a nice dose of nostalgia for me on a Sunday morning. I recently noticed you did an interview with Dis Unplugged -- thank you for all your hard work in collecting and sharing this treasure chest of DLH knowledge.

                I recently saw the artists rendition of the 4th resort hotel, and how it had a 'travel port/monorail plaza' station similar to the old DLH. While it was a brief dose of nostalgia, I can't help but feel a bit sad at how much of the area has changed.

                  That's it!! Thanks! I thought I was going nuts. I remembered it, but nobody I ever talked with seemed to remember it, and I could never find photos.

                  It was a nice-looking area. A quiet little escape. A shame it's gone.

                    Hello
                    Over 20 years ago my mother worked at the Walt Disney Travel Company located next to the Monorail Station in the old Disneyland Hotel.
                    Before the demolition cast members were given artwork that decorated the halls. My mom was given a picture that hung in the corridor near the Embassy Ballroom. It would be amazing if I could find a picture of it hanging in its original home.
                    I know it’s a long shot but any chance anyone has pictures from that part of the hotel?

                    Here is the picture

                        Gamedog Right?! Turns out it’s hard to find poster in a series by Herb Ryman called the Art of Disneyland. But it doesn’t seem to be worth much. That’s why I was hoping to prove that it hung in the old hotel. But I don’t know how. ☹️

                          Stacie Tennant -- If anyone would know, it'd be Don Ballard, the dean of Disneyland Hotel historians. He has a treasure trove of photographs of the pre-1999 hotel. Here's his contact information.
