Tokyo Disney Resort Announces its Fourth Hotel, to Open Next Year

September 1, 2015, 9:29 PM · Tokyo Disney Resort has announced plans for its fourth hotel, the Tokyo Disney Celebration Hotel.

Tokyo Disney Celebration Hotel

The hotel will open next June and appears to be replacing the Palm & Fountain Terrace Hotel, a Tokyo Disney partner hotel that appears to be closing next February. (We are relying on a translation of the Japanese press release here, so forgive us if we're getting the details about the Palm & Fountain Terrace Hotel wrong. Corrections and clarifications from our multilingual readers are welcomed in the comments.)

The Palm & Fountain Terrace Hotel site is about five kilometers east of the Tokyo Disney Resort, so the Tokyo Disney Celebration Hotel will not be an on-site hotel, even though it will be an official Disney property. In addition to Tokyo Disney's three on-site Disney hotels — the Tokyo Disneyland Hotel, the Disney Ambassador Hotel, and the Hotel MiraCosta — six non-Disney hotels operate on the Tokyo Disney Resort property, including a Hilton and a Sheraton. The Palm & Fountain Terrace Hotel is one of five nearby Tokyo Disney partner hotels.

I'm not sure about having a Disney-branded hotel offsite - they run the risk of guests assuming it is on-site and then being mightily annoyed when they realise it's not, especially when there are plenty of third party hotels on-site. It sounds like it's a minor retheming of the existing hotel, rather than a properly themed hotel that you'd expect from Disney.

Also, mixed use buildings are common. First so many floors retail, then offices, and then finally hotel on the upper floors.

Second, dig the Small World facade-inspired carpet.
