Disney’s Pixar Place Hotel debuts in Anaheim

Transformation of Paradise Pier Hotel part of turbocharged expansion at Disneyland Resort

Disney officially opened its newest hotel at Disneyland Resort on 30 January 2024 — Pixar Place Hotel. Formerly Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel, the transformation represents the first fully Pixar-themed hotel in the United States.

The 15-storey high-rise overlooking Disney California Adventure Park boasts comfortable and contemporary guest rooms that celebrate the artistry of Pixar Animation Studios, new dining options by Great Maple, a rooftop pool area and play court, renovated fitness centre and more. Character artwork, concept renderings and more illustrating Pixar stories, such as “Finding Nemo,” “Inside Out,” “Soul” and more, are displayed throughout the hotel.

“We are looking to turbocharge expansion at Disneyland Resort over the coming years, and the transformation of Pixar Place Hotel is a demonstration of how we’re creating high-quality guest experiences infused with our most popular stories,” said Ken Potrock, President, Disneyland Resort.

“With upgraded accommodations and amenities, plus stylish Pixar flair throughout, Pixar Place Hotel is proud to deliver an elevated, distinctly Disney experience that only comes with staying at the Disneyland Resort,” said Ron Silagyi, General Manager, Pixar Place Hotel.

Pixar Place Hotel is designed to evoke the inspiration and humor in every Pixar film, while celebrating the artistic process. Showcasing early sketches to finished design, the décor depicts memorable moments from Pixar stories and reveals some never-before-seen artwork.

“At Pixar, our mission is to tell great stories. And nothing is more exciting than when we see those stories come to life in Disney parks. Pixar Place Hotel at the Disneyland Resort is the perfect example – it’s like walking into a world of Pixar. It’s truly immersive, and we’re thrilled to have collaborated with Walt Disney Imagineering to make such an experience possible for guests,” said Pete Docter, Chief Creative Officer at Pixar.

The redesigned lobby is landmarked by a large sculpture of the iconic Pixar Lamp balancing atop its ball. Floating from the skylight above, a mobile represents the beginning stages of Pixar filmmaking – and guests’ stays – with character designs made of basic shapes and colours.

At select times, Joe Gardner from “Soul” may be found playing the piano near the hotel’s staircase. Appearing for the first time at any Disney property, Bing Bong from “Inside Out” may be found creating core photo memories with guests at select times.

From concept art on the headboards to pillows inspired by the Pixar Ball, and more, the reimagined guest rooms incorporate whimsical nods to the world-renowned animation studio. Some of the art was created by Pixar Animation Studios artists especially for Pixar Place Hotel.

When final touches are complete later this year, Pixar Place Hotel will have 479 total guest rooms, including two new, two-bedroom themed signature suites, plus a new concierge lounge. The colourful Coco Suite will pay tribute to Miguel and his family’s legacy through vibrant Oaxacan art, while the midcentury modern Incredibles Suite will feature Parr family memorabilia with a spy-fi twist.

The Creators Club concierge lounge on the second floor will honour the partnership between Walt Disney Imagineering and Pixar Animation Studios with attraction posters, concept art and music from Pixar experiences in Disney parks around the world.

Upgraded rooftop recreation areas create an oasis for play and relaxation. A great location to view fireworks on select nights, the rooftop deck is a cozy gathering space with plush couches and fire pits themed to hotheaded Pixar characters. The nearby Pixar Shorts Court offers outdoor games themed to Pixar short films. Guests can also lounge by the Pixel Pool; frolic in the “Finding Nemo”-themed splash pad, Nemo’s Cove; or take a ride on the57-metre-long Crush’s Surfin’ Slide.
