ANAHEIM, CALIF. -Disneyland Hotel at Disneyland Resort in Southern California boasts a unique, and certainly one of the most “Disney,” VIP lodging experiences in the world – the Mickey Mouse Penthouse. Designed for “big cheeses” of all ages, the penthouse offers spectacular views of the 500-acre resort (including Disneyland park, Disney’s California Adventure park and the Downtown Disney District) via floor-to-ceiling windows. Guests can experience a happy mixture of luxury, technology and whimsy including one-of-a-kind décor, artwork and magical touches that bring to life all the fun that Mickey represents.
The swanky penthouse, featuring an interior design of “Mickey’s” signature colors of black, white, red and yellow, occupies an expansive 1,600 square feet and includes an open living room, dining and kitchen area, two bedrooms and two and-a-half bathrooms. Classic Mickey Mouse imagery and three-dimensional artwork dominate the design scheme throughout the penthouse. Photos and sketches from the Disney library, featuring images of Walt and Mickey rarely seen by the public, are prominently displayed.
In the living room, guests encounter very stylized contemporary décor featuring eclectic furnishings and motifs of Mickey. A giant impression of Mickey Mouse fills the ceiling above, as glowing lights enhance the mood of the room. Hardwood floors and colorful area rugs accent the living room while the formal dining area seats eight guests. A built-in media wall is the focal point of the living room and features three flat screen TVs and a state-of-the-art home theater system worthy of Mickey’s status as one of Hollywood’s brightest stars.
The master bedroom features a number of luxury amenities including a king-size bed, lounge chairs, a 37″ flat panel TV and a DVD player, and is decorated with animation maquettes of Mickey Mouse in many of his most famous film roles. (Maquettes are three-dimensional models used by Disney animators to effectively render a character in two dimensions and are highly sought-after collectibles). The master bath includes a steam shower, Jacuzzi tub and a double vanity with a built-in TV in the mirror. Unique glass tiles on the shower walls bring the magic of Mickey Mouse to life as the familiar image of Mickey appears only when the warm water of the shower hits the tiled wall.
The second bedroom has a playful feel and is the perfect setting for little ones who wish to have the locale double as a playroom. The main “conversation piece” in the room is a cutting edge animator’s station, a high-tech table that adds to the Mickey Mouse and animation-inspired storyline. The desk will help budding artists take sketching to a whole new level as they draw their favorite character and watch it come to life through the magic of Disney technology. The bedroom also features a Mickey Mouse built-in armoire with a flat panel TV, DVD player and video games.
