Grew up in San Diego so spent many a weekend at Disneyland...indeed the "happiest place on earth." I also was fascinated with the attention to detail and mimicking of worldly environments. I totally blame Disneyland for my style of interior design in my home. Every room is currently set or have a plan for a particular theme with a room name [Flamingo Diner, Out Of Africa Master Bath (Safari theme), Tomb of Lady Beatrice FiFi Rosecrans (Egyptian master bedroom), VampTiki Lounge, La La Laundry Room, Foxshire Hunt Club (Equestrian bathroom), The Aloha Lanai (Hawaiian guest room), Bond Bungalow (007 guest house), Bombay Commissioners Office (den), Jumping Dog Brew & Cue (English Pub garage-planned). I love Design Toscano as they make really great decorative reproductions that help with many of these themes. Thank you Disneyland for my insanity.

Next year I am planning on touring around to the different Tiki bars in LA for a week. I am definitely looking forward to visiting the Tangaroa Terrace...looks like attention to detail is also the norm there.

Thanks for the pictures...keep posting them...they are inspiring.

A few years after Disneyland opened in Anaheim, CA, many novelty themed motels were built along Harbor Blvd., the main street leading to Disneyland. In order to compete for Disneyland tourist business, the motels were designed and built to get attention to potential lodgers.

Anaheim Vacationland
Roadside Peek
Yesterland


But of all people who were not happy with all these attention getting motels was Walt Disney who was very frustrated with the area surrounding Disneyland. He called it a ôsecond rate Las Vegas" and thought that the motels were tacky and garish. When he was conceptualizing a new theme park in Florida that would become Disney World, one of his desires was to have control of the land surrounding the new theme park so that all these "tacky, garish" motels would not be built so close to the park.



As the years progressed in Anaheim, many of these novelty themed motels such as the Cosmic Age disappeared and were replaced by the corporate hotel chains and their generic monolith archetectured buildings. This may have made Walt Disney happy but for some long time regular visitors of Disneyland, they felt that traveling past all the novelty themed motels along Harbor Blvd on the way to the park was part of the fun of going to Disneyland.

Meanwhile on June 17, 2012 inside the Disneyland Resort in Disney's California Adventure, A new section opens called Carsland which is based on the movie Cars. It is made to resemble Radiator Springs, the fictional Route 66 town from the movie.


Included is the Cozy Cone Motel, a novelty themed motel with attention grabbing archetecture.



The kind which Walt considered tacky and garish.

I guess this is not a reason why Disneyland sucks or rules. It should be listed in a thread called "Irony at Disneyland" but I don't feel like creating a new thread so here it stays. But another good post for the thread, if it did exist, would be the irony of the Filmore character in Carsland.

Disneyland needs to remind parents to watch their children? Oh my! What happened to parenthood today?

Went the weekend after Tiki Oasis 13 and I'm happy to say it still rules. Ran into a few tikiphiles whilst cruising around the park.
