Contents of Grand Hotel to Be Sold
The Walt Disney Co. has hired a liquidator to sell the contents of the Grand Hotel, the Anaheim property it purchased and shuttered in April to accommodate future expansion of the Disneyland resort.
National Content Liquidators Inc. of Dayton, Ohio, will begin the public sale on Tuesday. Among the items for sale are bedroom furniture, color televisions, bathroom fixtures, chandeliers, two baby grand pianos and the hotel’s marble bar.
“We’re selling anything that isn’t nailed down, and some stuff that is,” said NCL spokesman Don Hayes.
Disney outlasted two rival bidders and endured a protracted legal struggle to win control of the 11.1-acre site, for which it paid $13.3 million.
The company hasn’t disclosed plans for the property except to say that it will not be used as part of Disney’s California Adventure, its upcoming second theme park in Anaheim. However, Disney will likely use the property for additional expansion of its Anaheim empire down the road.
The Grand Hotel sale will run daily through Sept. 8. Hours are Monday through Saturday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Sundays, noon to 5 p.m.
