Playful Pixar elements have been coming to life over the past few months at Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel at Disneyland Resort, and the property will officially transform into Pixar Place Hotel on January 30, 2024, becoming the first fully Pixar-themed hotel in the United States.
In the lobby, you will be greeted by the iconic Pixar Lamp balancing atop its ball, with an imaginative mobile of beloved Pixar characters floating from the bright skylight above.
The guest rooms will feature elements such as pillows inspired by the Pixar Ball to lighting reminiscent of the Pixar Lamp, as well as other whimsical nods to the iconic animation studio throughout these comfortable and contemporary accommodations. The headboards will consist of concept art from a variety of Pixar features, including “The Incredibles,” “Toy Story 3” and more.
And, of course, there is a fabulous restaurant at the hotel. Great Maple restaurant will bring its innovative menu of upscale comfort food for breakfast, lunch and dinner. This modern American eatery will serve a robust selection of dishes made from scratch daily including the Cajun Shrimp & Cheddar Biscuit Benedict, Soda Pop-Braised Baby Back Ribs, Charred Cauliflower Hummus, Maple Pecan-Crusted Salmon, Market Fish, a variety of inspired salads, and the famous Buttermilk Fried Chicken & Maple Bacon Doughnuts!
In addition to Great Maple, a new grab-and-go coffee shop in the lobby called Sketch Pad Café will serve assorted pastries accompanied by a selection of coffee and tea. Plus, an all-new menu will debut at the rooftop pool bar named Small Bytes, serving up salads, wraps, assorted cheese plates and more which you can enjoy with signature beverages.
If you’re ready to “dive in” to the fun, you and your family can frolic at the hotel’s new “Finding Nemo”-themed splash pad and pool area! This rooftop oasis features Pixel Pool, which is lined with relaxing loungers, along with Nemo’s Cove pop-jet splash pad, and Crush’s Surfin’ Slide, a 186-foot-long water slide.
Near the pool, you can gather with friends on comfy couches surrounding fire pits inspired by some of Pixar’s more hotheaded characters, including Jack-Jack from Pixar’s “The Incredibles” and Anger from Pixar’s “Inside Out.”
Back in the lobby, browse through the new gift shop STOR-E — a playful take on the Pixar film name “WALL-E” — featuring Pixar-themed apparel and toys, plus more Disneyland Resort souvenirs and sundries.
Disney’s Pixar Place Hotel offers the added benefits of staying on property at the Disneyland Resort, including a dedicated entrance across the street with direct access to Disney California Adventure park as well as Early Theme Park Entry for both Disneyland and Disney California Adventure.
