A look inside the Disneyland Hotel's Big Thunder Suite
Written by Robert Niles
As part of the Summer Soundsational media event at Disneyland last week, I got to walk through five of the "themed suites" on the top floor of the Disneyland Hotel. I'll be posting photos from each of the suites this week, leading up to a vote of the week on Friday, where you can pick your favorite. (I'll offer a second vote, where you can tell us if you'd ever even consider dropping the cash to stay in one of these.)Tweet
Let's start with a suite inspired by one of my former attractions, the Big Thunder Suite:
The mountain holds the place of honor above the fireplace in the suite's living room. (All suites had video screen fireplaces with images of burning logs.)
There's another artist's rendering of the roller coaster ride on the wall in the dining area.
The rustic-yet-pricey decor continues in the second bedroom. (Nice attraction poster!)
And into the master bedroom:
But I most loved a couple of touches in the bathrooms, such as the sink:
And the bathtub!
And how much to stay? The theme suites are not available through the Disneyland website. You have to call 714-300-7520 to inquire about reservations. I've been quoted prices between $2,000 and $3,400 a night for these suites.
