Iíve just returned from a stay in the Disneyland hotel and was told by the lady at reception that once the New York has been redone and turned into a 5 star hotel, work will then begin on the Disneyland hotel and it will be turned into a palace and the number of rooms will decrease with prices increasing. This might be covered elsewhere but I hadnít heard of them upgrading the hotel further and reducing the number of rooms.
She also mentioned that as part of the upgrade to the New York the Disneyland hotel would absorb the customers and therefore they were removing the counter service breakfast option and changing it to the hotel which I didnít completely understand as counter service breakfast is being stopped for all the Disney hotels and moving back to the hotel.
On a separate note, I had asked about the counter service breakfast when booking the half board package and was told that if you had stayed in the Disneyland Hotel 10 times they upgrade you and it would then be breakfast in the hotel. I donít think I have met anyone who has stayed there 10 times so it seems on the high side to me but useful to know.
