Does anyone know when the neverland pool is scheduled to open? I've heard November but I've also heard not until spring/summer.

This is exactly the thread I was looking for last month when I started researching the DLH for our next trip.

disneyfan67 was kind enough to share some awesome photos of their stay in a new room in this thread I started

Excellent information provided. We are still trying to plan when we will be able to have our first visit to DL. I would love to stay at DL Hotel. Just waiting for official word/date when Carsland will be open.

Some people prefer to request one Tower or the other and it’s always best to make your requests along with your initial booking. You can also try faxing or phoning the resort a few days before you arrive (no more than five days) as a reminder, but please be aware that Disney will not guarantee any locations apart from on specific medical grounds.

Generally speaking, because of the shape/size of the resort, all Towers have fairly equal access to the pool / dining / recreation area, as well as equal distance to Downtown Disney and the Parks. However, the closest rooms to Downtown Disney and the Park entrances are in the Fantasy and Adventure Towers.
If you are hoping to be able to see the DL fireworks from your room and you are staying in the Adventure Tower (best tower to see them), you MUST be on the DTD side (not pool) and 5th floor or higher. Floors 2-4 have a "treeline" that keeps you from seeing the fireworks show.

Thanks for the updated numbers and fireworks info - I will include it!

Ok, started to panic a bit when I read about the construction woes! We're set to go Oct 13-15. About a week ago I changed our reservation from GCH to DLH because my kids wanted to stay there to try out the new waterslides. I had booked us at GCH, even though DLh is our fave, because of the construction but decided it probably wasn't bad. THEN I read some of the reviews here!! So I called today to change back to GCH and it's no longer available . I feel pretty stupid but am consoling myself with the hope that we get Adventure tower DTD view (which I requested and paid for, but you know how that goes) and with the idea that we will enjoy the new Tangaroa Terrace, have ressies for dinner at Goofy's, and are planning to eat at RFC so DLH is convenient for all of that. Right? RIGHT??

I love this thread, by the way!! Thanks so much to all who have contributed photos. I think we should have a DIS DLH get together for all of us on this thread who love it and go in on one of the fancy suites!!

UPDATE - Remodel, Pools and More 9-27

So, Hubby and I stayed at the remodeled-but-still-under-construction DLH this past weekend.

As promised, we took more detailed photos of the pool area and a few other places, which I'll be posting as soon as I can find my camera cord for the computer!

However, based on some of the questions asked here, I can answer a few things right away:

Pools:
  • While there is only one hot tub (right now), it does appear that there will be a second hot tub next to the "E ticket pool" upon completion. This is the same hot tub that used to be Little Mermaid themed (next to the old Peter Pan-themed pool). We got a good look and some photos of that area, and it appears that they are keeping this hot tub. We're assuming this because if the entire pool area will be completed in a few months, they would surely have demolished that hot tub area and gutted it by now??
  • The Monorail slides are AWESOME!! You WILL get wet. Ladies, no use trying the bun-on-top-of-the-head thing, it doesn't work. (Trust me, I tried.) Be prepared for your hair to get soaked.

Towers:
  • According to the clerk at check-in, the room remodels are complete (including in the Fantasy Tower). All rooms are now operating and open for biz.
  • While each Tower has a specific "theme" (Frontier, Adventureland, Fantasy), which will be seen in the lobby decor, the hallways of each Tower are standard, i.e., they are all the same. The decor of the hallways of each Tower are in keeping with the hotel's overall blue/yellow/champagne color scheme, with a Sorcerer's Apprentice-type carpeting in each.

Will update the thread later with more pool photos, etc.

Looking forward to seeing your recent pics. We're checking in on Friday night for a few days, supposedly in the adventure tower, and the kids are really looking forward to the monorail slides (me too!). Also can't wait to see the two new restaurants.

Thread Updated w/Maps & WAY MORE PHOTOS See Posts #1-3

Just wanted everyone to know that the thread has been updated with new photos, maps and welcome information (see Posts #1 - #3).

One nice thing: the map handed to guests pretty much confirms there will be a second hot tub when the "E ticket" pool section opens.

Next Up: Tower lobby photos...
