The refurbishment of the of the Disneyland Hotel continues to progress, with the E-Ticket swimming pool and Mickey Spa having now opened to guests.
The Orange County Register reports that the latest phase of the extensive two-year renovation project is complete. The E-Ticket Pool is the third revamped swimming pool to have been opened, following the all-new D-Ticket Pool and the updated Monorail slides and pool.
Themed around the E-Tickets that Disneyland visitors used to exchange for rides on the park's top attractions, the pool features tiles that hold replica tickets. It has replaced the former Neverland Pool.
Work to complete the refurbishment of the Disneyland Hotel will continue into 2012, with hundreds of rooms and one of the hotel's three towers still to be finished. Two new dining locations opened in May 2011, dubbed Tanagroa Terrace and Trader Sam's Enchanted Tiki Bar.
The Disneyland Hotel was the first hotel to officially be branded as a Disney property. Previously owned and operated by Jack Wrather, it was acquired by the company in 1988.
