The resort originally opened with 492 rooms and has a South Seas theme reminiscent of 1950s style Polynesian hotels that Walt Disney and his wife Lillian oftenenjoyed. Welton Becket and Associates took care of the design while US Steel Realty Development handled the construction. In fact, United States Steel used a then newly developed construction process for its original longhouses by erecting steel frames on-site followed by lifting pre-constructed modular rooms into these frames via cranes, similar to the process used for Disneys Contemporary Resort. Guests are enticed to visit by brightly-lit tiki torches, luscious vegetation, and the soothing sounds of the waterfront that create the perfect escape from the real world.

local time this morning for a “Rock Your Disney Side” party, where guests are encouraged to come in costume and spend the day and night at what we like to call “Grad Night for Grown-ups.” The kick-off at the Magic Kingdom this morning.

Disneyland is offering four cams, which will capture some of the many entertainment events in the parks tonight. Here are the links: Main Street (Mickey’s Soundsational Parade at 6:30 p.m.
