Good Morning! This day in Disney history, Dec. 11th, 1995. The Disneyland Pacific Hotel, formerly the Pan Pacific Hotel, opens in Anaheim. (In December 2000 it will be renamed the Paradise Pier Hotel.) The hotel is unique in the Western Hemisphere for being one of the few buildings to actually have a 13th floor, as opposed to the more common practice of going straight from 12 to 14. This is because the original owners were Japanese & they didn't consider the number bad luck.

Cool that it has a 13th floor. Did you know that many cities that number their streets also don't use 13? However, rather than skipping from 12 to 14 sometimes the street will be named Euclid after the Greek Mathematician because his 13 volume "Elements" formed the Geometry that is most commonly studied in schools to this day (aka Euclidean Geometry). - LilSterner   4536.8 #18 12-11-12 8:29PM Like(1)  Reply

nope but one thing they did have was a entrance for Paradise pier guests that was located by Goofys sky school but they closed that entrance 4 years after the prak opened - Dave   11400.2 #2 12-11-12 5:08PM
I remembered that entrance, Dave. Too bad they closed it. Was it for security issues, I wonder. - MeridaFan  3404.9 #27 12-11-12 5:11PM
