NEW Pixar Place Hotel

Check out the new Pixar Place Hotel! This hotel is currently being remodeled and will be taking the place of Paradise Pier Hotel. I recently visited in June and here is everything you need to know. It will have amazing designs of Pixar artwork throughout the lobby, elevators and rooms. The lobby is already starting to transform. We do not have an exact date when this hotel will be completed, but I will definitely keep you posted. They are also working on a new Finding Nemo Splash area that will include all our favorite Pixar characters and a water slide. The hotel will have interactive games inspired by Pixar shorts and Great Maple Restaurant will open at Pixar Place Hotel. The restaurant will have both indoor and outdoor seating. To get you ready for Pixar Place Hotel, here is a list of Pixar rides, entertainment, and yummy treats you can't miss in Disneyland and DCA.  See the NEW Pixar Place Hotel here.
