There are three elevators in this area, which guests will take depending on the location of their room.

Metal motifs of Pixar characters have also been installed in the floor of the elevators. Here, you can see Flik from Disney and Pixar’s “A Bug’s Life.”

The updating theming has yet to reach the rest of the floors, however, as they still retain their previous Paradise Pier theming.

The reimagining of Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel into Disney’s Pixar Place Hotel is to be completed this winter. The project was first announced at the D23 Expo in 2022.

Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel has gone through many changes over the years, and was not a Disneyland Resort property until 1995, when it became the Disneyland Pacific Hotel. Just before Disney California Adventure (at the time Disney’s California Adventure Park) opened in 2001, the hotel swapped names again to reflect the Paradise Pier area it was now located behind. When Paradise Pier became Pixar Pier in 2018, it seemed only a matter of time before another modification would be in the works.
