CONCEPT ART: First Official Look at Refurbished Disneyland Hotel Lobby in Disneyland Paris

Disneyland Paris shared their first official look at concept art for the refurbished Disneyland Hotel lobby. The hotel is currently undergoing a “royal transformation,” drawing inspiration from various Disney Princess films.

This first piece of concept art, shared by DLP Report, leaked earlier this year. It shows a lobby inspired by the library from “Beauty and the Beast,” with a portrait of the couple above the fireplace and books on the balconies above. There is a spiraling crystal chandelier forming an image of the Beast’s castle at the center of the room, above pink couches and gilded furniture. Candelabras around the room, particularly two golden ones on the mantel, resemble Lumiere. A clock also on the mantel resembles Cogsworth.

A second piece of artwork shows the upstairs lobby, with Princess Tiana and Prince Naveen greeting guests. A structure in the center has rounded birdcage-like pieces between benches, and a candelabra at the center.

The transformation also includes retheming the rooms to various Disney Princesses. Disneyland Paris announced today that “Raya and the Last Dragon,” “The Princess and the Frog,” and “Moana” will be featured throughout Disneyland Hotel.

Disneyland Hotel will reopen next year.
