Yes, it has been a while since I have been here, in fact I tried to enter under the original account (without the 1), but I have some exciting news..... Well, we have been promised some new properties recently, including some Disney Managed ones at Anaheim GardenWalk (still waiting financing) and the new 4 star that is supposed to be built at the south east corner of Harbor and Katella (also delayed finance issued), but here is one that is self-financed, so should happen on time. The franchise owners of the Howard Johnson Plaza Hotel (aka HoJo's Anaheim) owns the land across the street from the current Hotel, including where Mimi's Cafe is located (they lease the land to the restaurant), and it is not part of the new plans. But the empty land by the Fairfield Inn and Quality Inn & Suites (currently overflow parking for HoJo's) will be the location of a new property that is scheduled to open in 2014 (all the permits have been issued). I have been told they are planning larger rooms than HoJo's, and a larger Water Feature play area. The franchise owner is currently looking for a Hotel company, such as Marriott, InterContiential, Wyndham, and others, to become the "brand" of the property. But it looks like it should be a great addition to the area, for those TA folks that like to plan in advance, is something to keep in mind. Still doing my photos/videos at darkbeer.smugmug.com, and working with the American Coaster Enthusiasts in reporting news and events. Happy Holidays to everyone!
