Disneyland Hotel Anaheim 2010

client: The Walt Disney Company

location: Anaheim, California

ima provided the Landscape Architecture and Building Information Modeling (BIM) for the area surrounding the Never Land Pool’s complete cosmetic makeover. A new, four-foot deep pool will be built between the Never Land Pool and the water play area. A footbridge will stretch over this new pool, connecting both sides of the courtyard area and giving easy access across the property.

The centerpiece of the pool area’s makeover is a 26 foot tall, dual water slide tower. Reminiscent of the original Monorail station at the Disneyland Hotel, at each slide’s entrance will sit a replica Monorail Car that guests will glide through as they twist and turn their way to the pool below. The pool will also feature a third, two-lane mini slide, perfect for little ones, which is just three and a half feet high and is 19 feet long.

Along with resort quality landscape and hardscape, ima built the entire pool area in BIM and was able to detect dozens of potential problems, or clashes, before a single shovel hit the ground.
