The Disneyland Hotel is slated to get a whole host of updates in 2022. Imagineers are working on bringing more elements of Disney storytelling to the new resort property, inspired by Walt Disney Animation Studios’ classic movies.

In addition, Disneyland Hotel will get a new pool and recreation area and more room options to make it the ideal base for any visitor to Disneyland in 2022 and beyond.

And don’t forget to take advantage of the 2022 Disneyland Resort hotel discounts when booking.

Mickey’s Toontown 2.0

Disney plans to revamp Mickey’s Toontown next year to make it more friendly for young families. It’ll close in March 2022 and work will commence, with Toontown 2.0 slated to open in 2023.

If you’re planning a Disneyland trip and you have young children, the new Mickey’s Toontown promises to be an enjoyable and memorable experience for the entire family.

Returning Shows: World of Color and Fantasmic!

Two nighttime spectaculars — World of Color and Fantasmic! — will return in 2022. Both were put on hold after Disneyland Resort reopened following the COVID-19 shutdown and have been on hold ever since. 

But if you’re planning a Disneyland trip in 2022, you’ll be able to check out both shows, as well as the Main Street Electrical Parade.

MagicBand+ and Hey Disney Come to Disneyland

Back in September, Disney announced the latest version of its wearable MagicBand+ would come to Walt Disney World Resort in 2022. Now, it’s been announced that the same technology will be coming to Disneyland Resort next year!

DLR hotels will also be available with the “Hey Disney!” virtual assistant, originally announced during WDW’s 50th Anniversary Celebration. It’ll work with Alexa on Amazon Echo devices and will roll out to guest rooms at Disneyland Resort Hotels.

Downtown Disney’s Next Evolution
