Pixar Place Hotel At Disneyland Resort: Concept Art & New Details

Inside Pixar Place Hotel at Disneyland

Disney has just released some impressive artist renderings of what the new Pixar Place Hotel, which overlooks the Disney’s California Adventure theme park, will look like once its renovations are completed.

This 15-story hotel is currently called the Paradise Pier Hotel, but over the next few months Disney will start to transition the hotel into a Pixar-themed playground for both young and old. The hotel will continue to be open to guests throughout the transition to its new look, and the artist rendering below should come to life sometime this winter!

Let’s take a look at what Disney has planned for the Pixar Place Hotel at Disneyland Resort!

New Lobby

Over the next few months, the hotel lobby will undergo a transformation that blends contemporary design with Pixar imagery. Upon completion, iconic Pixar characters will be featured prominently at the front desk in curated artwork, showcasing larger-than-life depictions from their films.

Come winter, guests entering the lobby will be greeted by the playful image of the Pixar Lamp balancing atop its ball. A whimsical and colorful mobile inspired by beloved characters will hang above, creating a welcoming atmosphere in the newly reimagined lobby atrium.

An all-new water play area inspired by “Finding Nemo” will be available for overnight guests to enjoy later this summer. Families can join the fan-favorite fish and his friends in a splashing good time. Shown in the artist rendering above, you can see Crush the sea turtle crowned on top of a reportedly 186-foot-long waterslide, as well as other Finding Nemo characters featured around the reimagined splash pad.

New Recreational Activities

Also, sometime later this year, a family play court inspired by Pixar’s famous short films will be added to the deck. Guests will be able to engage in interactive games and imaginative free play that celebrate favorite friends from popular Disney short films like “La Luna,” “Bao,” “For the Birds,” and “Burrow.” When it’s time to unwind, visitors can enjoy food and drinks under the love-struck umbrellas from “The Blue Umbrella”.
