Decorative Suns Removed From Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel Exterior

Last updated:

The decorative yellow suns have been removed from columns on the exterior of Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel at Disneyland Resort. We saw work being done on the suns earlier in the month, and now it appears that was to remove them.

The suns were previously covering the clusters of white light fixtures visible in these photos.

They were on every column along the front of the building. Brown frames remain around the lights where the suns sat.

Silver suns remain on the corners of the porte-cochère and on the Paradise Pier Hotel sign.

Paradise Pier Hotel will be rethemed to the Art of Pixar, and the suns are set to be replaced with Luxo balls, as seen in the concept art below.

  1. Looking forward to seeing the finished product. This hotel has been in need of a serious makeover for a very long time. It looks cheaper than a 3 star hotel inside and out. The California Disney hotels severly pale in comparison to the Florida Disney hotels, the only exception being the Grand Cali lobby, bars and restaurants. The GC rooms are still average compared to the Wilderness Lodge.
