Walt Disney Co. shared more on Disneyland’s new hotel – its first in nearly two decades  –  after announcing the news over the summer.

The 700-room hotel will be located in the west end of the Downtown Disney District, and guestrooms, public spaces, and gardens will all offer views of the promenade. An upper level restaurant and lounge will provide guests with a view of the Disneyland park fireworks.

The hotel will be connected to Disneyland’s other on-site hotels through a garden, while extensive landscaping and water elements will create a resort-like feel. Its location embraces the iconic Disneyland Monorail with a dedicated platform inside the hotel for direct transport into Disneyland park.

The ground level of the hotel will include shops and restaurants opening onto an expansive landscaped plaza

Construction is scheduled to begin next summer, with a grand opening planned for 2021.
