Disneyland Resort confirmed today that Pixar Place Hotel will officially open January 30, 2024. The refresh of the former Paradise Pier Hotel brings in a heavy dose of visuals from the house of lamp that extends both inside and out.
New details have been shared about the rooms, the restaurants, and even the lobby.
A top-to-bottom rehaul of the rooms brings a bunch of Pixar nods including:
- Pillows inspired by the Pixar Ball which are also carried through in the sheets
- Lighting reminiscent of the Pixar Lamp
- Headboards with concept art from a variety of Pixar features, including “The Incredibles,” “Toy Story 3” and more
- Artwork created by Pixar Animation Studios artists especially for Pixar Place Hotel
Expect a modern space that includes art inspired by Pixar films and the he iconic Pixar Lamp balancing atop its ball as a giant photo-op statue.
An imaginative mobile of beloved Pixar characters floating from the bright skylight above. The mobile will depict the beginning stages of Pixar filmmaking, when animators create the characters’ designs with their most basic shapes and colors. The characters you’ll see are at the beginning of their journey, just as the guests who step into the lobby begin their own story at the Disneyland Resort!
Three new dining locations will be featured the hotel including the Great Maple signature restaurant plus a smaller Sketch Pad Café in the lobby and a casual rooftop pool bar called Small Bytes.
This rooftop oasis features Pixel Pool, which is lined with relaxing loungers, along with Nemo’s Cove pop-jet splash pad, and the not-to-miss Crush’s Surfin’ Slide, a 186-foot-long water slide inspired by the coolest sea turtle in the ocean. The adjacent play court and pool bar will open later this fall.
The lobby goft shop STOR-E features Pixar-themed apparel and toys, plus more Disneyland Resort souvenirs and sundries.
A new and expanded fitness center recently opened, offering treadmills, free weights and more complimentary for hotel guests. Keep an eye out for a mural of Mike and Sulley running on a treadmill, inspired by Pixar’s “Monsters University.”
