The rumoured Marvel re-theme of Disney’s Hotel New York was officially confirmed by Disney Parks and Resorts Chairman, Bob Chapekat at this weekends D23 Expo in Anaheim.
The details of the refurbishment were originally mentioned in the Cash Tender Offer documents published earlier this year by The Walt Disney Company, as part of their takeover bid for Disneyland Paris which quoted part of Euro Disney’s 10 year business plan for the resort.
A Marvel themed test corridor has already been created in Disney’s Hotel New York prior to today’s announcement and our friends at ED92 published these photographs last month of what the internal decor of the hotel could look like in the future.
No official date has been announced by Disneyland Paris for the start of the hotels closure and refurbishment, but it was initially rumoured that the hotel would be closed to guests from 30 September 2018 for two years to allow the refurbishment work to be completed, but in e-mails seen by the Salon Mickey Blog from a U.K. based travel agency it has since transpired that the reImagination of Hotel New York will now commence some time in 2019.
These dates are of course subject to change.
Here is what the official Disney Parks Blog published about the refurbishment.
