The reimagining of Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel into Disney’s Pixar Place Hotel is to be completed this winter.
Disneyland President Ken Potrock made the announcement today.
The project was first announced at the D23 Expo in 2022.
Stay tuned for more updates.
Pixar Place Hotel
The retheme of the hotel is already underway, and we saw the sign for the hotel removed last year.
The concept art shows Pixar ball lights outside and a colorful porte cochère.
Guests will be welcomed into whimsical character moments, like the iconic, playful Pixar Lamp balancing atop its ball in the lobby, as seen above.
The reimagining of the hotel will weave the artistry of Pixar into its contemporary setting. Guests will gain a new perspective on some of their favorite Pixar worlds and characters through carefully curated artwork, and décor that reveals the creative journey of the artists who helped bring these stories to life.
The announcement comes following the leak of original plans to turn the hotel into a Toy Story one, but Disney eventually opted to represent all Pixar franchises in the reimagined hotel.
A splash pad themed to “Finding Nemo” is part of the retheming of the property. Concept art shows “Finding Nemo” characters on the splash pad, including Crush atop a waterslide.
