Disneyland Hotel

Not owned by the Walt Disney Company until 1988, the Disneyland was originally built by Jack Wrather following a design by Pereira and Luckman. None of the original Pereira and Luckman designed hotel survives, having been replaced by Weber and Nicholson designed towers, starting in 1962. Despite numerous renovations, particularly to the hotel grounds, the hotel towers still stand relatively unchanged in their mid-century modern roots. (2017)
