Good morning! This day in Disney history, Dec 12th, 1927. Disney's Oswald, the Lucky Rabbit short "Empty Socks" animated by Hugh Harman & Rollin Hamilton is released. This silent black & white animated piece is the 1st ever Disney Christmas themed short. unfortunately it appears to be a lost cartoon, so I was unable to provide a link to watch. Also on this day in 2000, The Disneyland Pacific Hotel re-opens as Disney's Paradise Pier Hotel. The 502-room hotel has been brightly painted & re- decorated to reflect the new beachfront theme. Hotel guests at this time had an exclusive entrance to DCA located between the Corn Dog Castle & Souvenir 66 in the Paradise Pier section of the park, but it was closed due to low use in 2004. Have you stayed at this hotel? Did you like it? Why?

Nice to see you showed up to class before playtime. Jealous btw! 😜 - Duchess_SMK  5778.1 #14 12-12-12 11:35AM
Hi SMK!! I've never stayed at any DLR hotel before. It's on my list. Thank you once again, you awesome MWer! - IMissDisney   1205.4 #117 12-12-12 11:41AM Like  Reply
😱 Oh I hope you get to soon! Such a special treat! You live near the parks though correct? And THANK you! You're awesome too! 😘 - Duchess_SMK  5778.1 #14 12-12-12 11:54AM
Yes. About a half hour drive. - IMissDisney  1205.4 #117 12-12-12 11:55AM
I stayed there as a child with my family. Before DCA, before Disney owned the hotel, it was the Pan Pacific. My brother and I loved the glass elevator because we could see the Matterhorn from it. - MousekaNinja   414.7 #468 12-12-12 11:55AM Like  Reply
Neat! Yes! The hotel was built in 1984 by a Japanese company & was originally known as the Emerald Hotel. When Disney purchased the property in 1995 the name was changed from the Pan Pacific Hotel to the Disneyland Pacific Hotel, and in 2000 it became known by its current name. I never got to see that glass elevator! 😢 - Duchess_SMK  5778.1 #14 12-12-12 12:02PM
You are so knowledgeable! =) My brother and his family stayed there last year. He said they liked it. The WOC music is piped into the rooms and they could see it from their window. Well, the backside of WOC anyways. - MousekaNinja  414.7 #468 12-12-12 12:06PM
Naw! I just really like to read DL history, can you tell? 😂 Neat about WOC! I hear you can watch the fireworks from the pool deck and hear the music there too! - Duchess_SMK  5778.1 #14 12-12-12 12:10PM
That is so awesome! Something for us all to consider when we are trying to decide what hotels to stay in. And since you can use any of the resort pools if you stay at the resort, I'm sure if you stay at the DLH or Grand you could go over to the PP roof pool to watch too. =) - MousekaNinja  414.7 #468 12-12-12 12:17PM
You are probably right! ;) - Duchess_SMK  5778.1 #14 12-12-12 12:33PM
I've always wanted to stay there and watch woc from there. - madsdad   1800.8 #74 12-12-12 12:05PM Like  Reply
Me too! Last time I stayed there WOC wasn't even round yet! Sometime soon hopefully! - Duchess_SMK  5778.1 #14 12-12-12 1:01PM
I've stayed there I really liked it. It's a longer walk to the parks but the rooms are bigger its quieter and the whole atmosphere seems more laid back than the grand - spaceranger916   342.8 #617 12-12-12 12:09PM Like  Reply
Yes! I like it too! But you are right that is about a mile and a half walk to the park. I wouldn't mind that at all right now though! ;) - Duchess_SMK  5778.1 #14 12-12-12 4:54PM
My day is complete. Thanks Duchess. - splashphotoCM   885.6 #176 12-12-12 12:55PM Like  Reply
Miss you! You going to the parks on Saturday by chance?? - Duchess_SMK  5778.1 #14 12-12-12 4:55PM
We are staying there tomorrow night. Cant wait. - chipanddalefan   724.3 #223 12-12-12 12:59PM Like  Reply
No WAY! Nice to hear you get some time on an overnight! You must have gotten some horse sitters! Awesome! - Duchess_SMK  5778.1 #14 12-12-12 5:10PM
Yes way lol! Got a friend to horsesit. Been way too long since we had a night away! So looking forward! - chipanddalefan  724.3 #223 12-12-12 11:23PM
Yes I have stayed there several times and really miss the "secret entrance" to DCA. When going with my two kids they always gave us a room with couch bed (ask for corner room). - ShariRenee   4545.6 #19 12-12-12 1:10PM Like  Reply
Too bad about the Oswald cartoon. Have not stayed at that hotel. Maybe one day. The Disneyland Hotel is next on my list :) Thank you! - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint   4459.8 #21 12-12-12 5:00PM Like  Reply
Somebody said something about poor Oswald! Thanks churro! Oh! Will that be your 1st time staying at the DLH? It's by far my favorite out of the three! - Duchess_SMK  5778.1 #14 12-12-12 5:09PM
Mine too! - ShariRenee  4545.6 #19 12-12-12 5:16PM
