Disney Parks Blog has announced that Disneyland’s Paradise Pier Hotel will soon begin a transformation, inviting favorite Pixar characters and themes into the hotel. The contemporary feel of the hotel will welcome that whimsical Pixar touch. Guests will be able to enjoy exceptional artwork, decor, and characters from many favorite Pixar films.
Inside the lobby, guests will enjoy a towering version of Luxo, Jr. – the iconic, playful Lamp balancing atop the famous red, yellow, and blue Pixar star ball. Check out this artist rendering.
Aside from the thematic transformation, this reimagining of Paradise Pier Hotel will include a functional improvement for guests as well. A walkway is currently under construction which, when completed, will give Paradise Pier Hotel guests their own convenient entrance to Disney California Adventure park. This enhancement will elevate the hotel to the convenience level of Disneyland Hotel and the Grand Californian Hotel, both of which have their own private entrances to Disneyland entertainment.
Paradise Pier Hotel will also be outfitted with “Hey Disney!” – a voice assistant companion to Alexa on Amazon Echo devices, which is currently being used in Disneyland Resort hotel rooms.
Enhancements for all Disneyland Resort Hotels
All Disneyland Resort hotels will shortly be allowing guests to send select theme park purchases back to their resort hotel. Additionally – later this summer, Disneyland Resort is planning to offer early entry park access, where guests staying at one of the Disneyland Resort hotels can enter the theme parks and begin enjoying select attractions and experiences.
These enhancements should help make the price of a Disneyland Resort hotel worth the extra money. What do you think? Let us know with a comment here, or send a direct message to Facts and Figment on social media:
