When Disney takes over Disneyland, a new family hotel could open in Lake Tahoe
- by admin
An executive from Disney World, who declined to be identified because the company is not commenting on a matter pending before the state, said he had discussed the possibility of a new resort hotel with the company’s president.
“Disney has said they would like to open a hotel at Disneyland, which is a great location for Lake Tahoes hotel,” said the executive, who asked not to be named because the matter is ongoing.
The executive added that Disney has also been in touch with the Lake Tahos Resort District to discuss possible projects there. “
If we had a chance to get a hotel there, we would definitely do it.”
The executive added that Disney has also been in touch with the Lake Tahos Resort District to discuss possible projects there.
The resort district, which has had two hotels on the island in the past, was the first to formally call for the hotel to be built and is now in negotiations with Disney.
The executive said the Disney resort hotel would be a “new addition” to the property.
“We have talked to the district and have made sure they understand that they have the right to take legal action if they are not able to get an agreement, and we have been trying to work through all the legal issues.”
The project is being spearheaded by former US President Bill Clinton, who in 1997 announced a plan to open Disneyland in the lake.
He said it would be the first Disney theme park in the world.
He said it was also important to build a hotel to complement the resort.
“A hotel at Lake TahOE is a terrific addition to the resort, and would also be a great opportunity to attract guests,” he said.
In January 2016, Disney agreed to buy Disneyland for $4.6 billion, a deal worth $3.2 billion.
The deal, which had been in the works for several years, was cancelled when Disney failed to find a buyer for the resort and the resort district voted against it.
