The ever-popular Disney doesn't just have theme parks, but many hotels as well. In this article, we're going to be introducing somewhere that every Disney fan should stay at least once, opened first in Japan, "Disney Ambassador Hotel".
Welcome to Disney Ambassador Hotel
The theme of this white and blue accented building is "A 1930s America overflowing with romance and dreams". Within the hotel, you'll find various stylish and popular designs from around the world during the theme's time frame.
After entering through the main entrance, the first thing you'll come into contact with and see has to be the statue of Mickey Mouse dressed up as a film director which is placed in the center of the room. If you look towards where the camera is facing, you'll see other characters from the Disney world such as Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, and Goofy flying planes along the ceiling spelling out the name of the hotel. As you can probably guess, the setting is "Mickey Mouse filming his friends flying planes".
Within Disney Ambassador Hotel you'll find 7 floors with 504 total rooms, 4 restaurants, a bridal salon, and even a convenience store. Throughout the building, you'll find lots of items relating to the characters and films from Disney. When using the stairs going to the banquet hall, you'll find 2 statues of Mickey and Minnie Mouse, both of which are really cute!
