The enhancements at the Disneyland Hotel continue to take shape, and on Sunday, May 29, a new, immersive water play area will join Tangaroa Terrace and Trader Sam’s – Enchanted Tiki Bar, which opened earlier this week.
As we first told you about last year, the centerpiece of the new pool area will call to mind past Disneyland park iconography. Classic Disneyland block signage will combine with replica Monorail trains to create an experience that is both fun and nostalgic.
Also coming to the Disneyland Hotel pool area will be a new D-Ticket themed pool. Guests will have fun finding the subtle D-Tickets in the pool, which are reminiscent of the ticket books that were used in the early days of Disneyland. This will be followed in late 2011 by an E-Ticket themed pool, in the area which previously featured the Never Land pool.
The new pool space will also include Mickey and Minnie themed spas located at opposite ends of the pool area. Also, when the pool area is completed, six new cabanas will be available, featuring flat-screen TVs, refrigerators, safes, phones and ceiling fans.

Starting today, guests can jam with Mickey Mouse as he leads “Mickey’s Soundsational Parade” down Main Street, U.S.A, at Disneyland park. The new parade runs daily and includes a syncopated drum line, nine whimsical floats and an array of musicians and favorite Disney characters. We give you a front row seat in the video below. Enjoy!
(“Mickey’s Soundsational Parade” is part of “Disney Soundsational Summer,” an exciting summer of offerings that kicks off June 3 and includes the premiere of The Little Mermaid ~ Ariel’s Undersea Adventure at Disney California Adventure park, the debut of “Star Tours – The Adventures Continue” at Disneyland park and an unveiling of new enhancements to the Disneyland Hotel.)

We hope you’ve been enjoying our updates about the exciting new elements you’ll find on the Disney Fantasy.
Today, I want to share some details that are sure to make you sing and dance with excitement…a new Broadway-style production will take the stage in the Walt Disney Theatre aboard the Disney Fantasy. This show brings to life the story from a classic animated Disney film – “Aladdin.” New to Disney Cruise Line, “Disney’s Aladdin – A Musical Spectacular” is a fast-paced musical comedy where Aladdin, the “street rat” of Agrabah, meets a wise-cracking Genie who grants him three wishes.
Along the way, Aladdin battles the evil Jafar and falls in love with Princess Jasmine, who by the way is my daughter’s favorite Disney character. Kids and adults alike are all going to love this entertaining show!
If you’re hoping there will be a flying magic carpet scene, your wish is coming true. With the help of mechanical wizardry and state-of-the-art projections, Aladdin and Jasmine will perform “Whole New World” as they soar on a romantic magic carpet ride.
If only I could rub a magic lamp and have a Genie pop out – I would wish to be on a Disney cruise right now! Who’s with me?
