No one blends brilliant photography and detailed Disneyland Resort information better than Andy Castro. Andy is a Southern California native and has been photographing the Disney parks for years. He also provides insider information on enhancements, refurbishments, remodels and merchandise at the parks. Andy’s weekly blog, Dateline Disneyland, is regarded as one the most visually impressive and informative blogs covering the Disneyland Resort. We are proud to count Andy as a close friend of the Anaheim HoJo!
Andy wrote a recent blog feature about the history of the Howard Johnson. Here is the first part in the series on the long history of HoJo and Disneyland which began in 1965:
Celebrating 50 Years of “Retro Family Fun” at HoJo Anaheim
I’m a big fan of the Howard Johnson across the street from Disneyland. The folks at HoJo Anaheim run a great, affordable property and have been longtime supporters of Dateline Disneyland. Starting today, we’ll periodically be running special featurettes on the Howard Johnson Hotel and Water Playground here in Dateline Disneyland. To kick off this special new feature, we’re taking a look back at HoJo Anaheim’s great history as the hotel gears up for its 50th Anniversary in 2015!
