Tokyo Disneyland Hotel Grand Opening on July 8, 2008
Third Disney Hotel at Tokyo Disney Resort
URAYASU, CHIBA - Milial Resort Hotels Co., Ltd. announced that the new Tokyo Disneyland Hotel, the third Disney Hotel in Tokyo Disney Resort, will open on Tuesday, July 8, 2008. The new hotel will mark its grand opening during the Tokyo Disney Resort 25th Anniversary celebrations.
Tokyo Disneyland Hotel stands in front of the Disney Resort Line's Tokyo Disneyland Station at the main entrance of Tokyo Disneyland Park. Because of its location, the hotel serves as the "front door" to the Resort, welcoming guests with its grand and luxurious Victorian design. The hotel design blends with the architecture of World Bazaar, which is the first area guests see upon entering Tokyo Disneyland Park. Victorian-style hotels are found at several Disney Resorts, with the first one having been built at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida. This architectural style was chosen because Walt Disney, who was born near the end of the Victorian era, championed the values and ideals of that time throughout his life. That heritage will continue with the new Tokyo Disneyland Hotel.
As the largest of the Disney Hotels at Tokyo Disney Resort, Tokyo Disneyland Hotel features 706 guest rooms. Like the two existing Disney hotels, the majority of the guest rooms are designed to provide a comfortable stay for guests visiting as families. The hotel also offers four banquet rooms in different sizes to cater to various needs. A lounge on the lobby level (third floor) and two restaurants on the first floor provide guests with a luxurious dining atmosphere. Four shops offer Disney merchandise, gifts and sundries.
The year 2008 will not only mark the grand opening of Tokyo Disneyland Hotel, but also the 25th anniversary of Tokyo Disney Resort. During this milestone year, the Resort will host a yearlong jubilee as a place for everyone to visit. The slogan for the celebration is "Unlock Your Dreams" and Tokyo Disneyland Hotel will provide a memorable and dreamlike experience for guests who wish to be immersed in the world of Disney during their entire stay at the Resort.
Note: Banquet hall reservations are scheduled to begin on Monday, September 3, 2007. Hotel room reservations are scheduled to begin 6 months prior to the hotel opening.
