December 11, 1995 – The Disneyland Pacific Hotel is Acquired

Pacific Hotel

“The acquisition of the Pan Pacific Hotel enables us to offer additional lodging choices for the guests of the Disneyland Resort.” – President of Disneyland Paul Pressler

On December 11, 1995, the Disneyland Pacific Hotel opened after an extensive deal with the original owners, the Tokyu Group. The hotel was originally built by the Tokyu Group in 1984, and was named the Emerald of Anaheim. In 1989, after a consolidation effort by the Tokyu Group of its two hotel brands, the hotel was renamed the Pan Pacific. In 1995, the hotel was acquired by Disney for $36 million (about $56.5 million in adjusted inflation). In 1996, a special cast-only pin was released this day, celebrating one year of Disney ownership of the hotel.
