The rooms are highly themed to Disney Animation. The new Discovery Tower joins the other three towers at the Disneyland Hotel named after Fantasy, Adventure, and Frontier. – https://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2023/09/now-open-the-villas-at-disneyland-hotel-at-disneyland-resort/ https://www.micechat.com/348519-the-villas-at-the-disneyland-hotel-photos-info-vacation-club/

With the debut of the new Discovery Disney Vacation Club Tower, there is also some accompanying new merch! Shirts, ears, magnets, pins, and more are available with simple, multicolored designs. – https://dlnewstoday.com/2023/09/full-list-with-prices-of-new-merchandise-for-the-villas-at-disneyland-hotel/ https://dlnewstoday.com/2023/10/disney-cast-members-and-employees-receiving-commemorative-disney100-nametag/

A new nighttime entertainment option has debuted to fill a small part of the gap left by Fantasmic! being dark. The Heartbeat of New Orleans – A Living Mural is a shorter show that makes up for it by performing multiple times each evening. For exact showtimes, check the Disneyland App. – https://www.disneyfoodblog.com/2023/09/30/come-see-disneys-new-nighttime-show-with-us/#more-857745

Cast members will be getting a commemorative Disney100 nametag soon. The nametag is platinum colored, with a sparkling Disney100 logo across the center, with the cast member’s name engraved in black. Guests won’t see this nametag in the parks, as it is not part of the “Disney Look” and will not be worn by cast members. – https://dlnewstoday.com/2023/10/disney-cast-members-and-employees-receiving-commemorative-disney100-nametag/

The lounge that replaced Steakhouse 55 in the Disneyland Hotel has opened this week. The small location is the old bar section of the former restaurant and serves drinks and a limited menu. The lounge is open 5pm to midnight, with entertainment on select nights. – https://www.micechat.com/369295-disneyland-update-so-much-new-a-little-bit-of-boo-too/
