Disneyland Hotel 1965

It's 1965 and the Disneyland Hotel is expanding again. Work has begun on the new Tower addition which would double the size of this building and increas the Hotel's capacity to over 600 rooms. It would also allow for the building to be properly named "Disneyland Hotel." Due to the location of the glass elevator, the words at the top of the first tower stated "Hotel Disneyland." Disneyland and the Disneyland Hotel celebrated ten year anniversaries in 1965.

And Still More Personal Photographs.....

I love these personal pictures.

http://www.magicalhotel.com/ is the website for the book Disneyland Hotel The Early Years 1954-1988. It's out of print with very few copies available.

Got this from someone today:

Just ordered your book thru your website (finally - big procrastinator) but I thought you'd be interested to see what it was going for on Amazon! http://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/0976877910/ref=wl_it_of?ie=UTF8&coliid=I1S7TZDBXIBRRQ&colid=3QLZ7598LMQ1V&condition=all

Some new original photographs

Today, I wanted to thank Bill Cotter for allowing me to share some great, original shots of the Original Disneyland Hotel from his own personal files. Bill some times has these pictures on disk on Ebay auctions and if you get a chance, you should get them while you can. His shots are always in beautiful living color and show great detail of areas not often displayed any more. Bill's book "The Wonderful World of Disney Televeison" is also a must have in my opinion. It's a tremendous resource for any Disney enthusist with great details on the shows. Thanks very much Bill and maybe you could write in and share a website address so others could see?
