Are you a fan of Pixar? Heading to California’s Disneyland? Then you’re definitely going to want to book a stay at the brand new Pixar Place Hotel, the first ever fully Pixar-themed hotel in the United States, and the perfect place to get your Bing Bong on (or Woody, or Sully, or whichever character is your favorite).
Much like how Wall-E built a whole new world on top of his old world (spoilers for Wall-E), the Pixar Place Hotel is built on the bones of the old Paradise Pier Hotel, located next to the Downtown Disney parking lot, and across the street from Goofy’s Sky School. It also, probably more to the point, has a clear view of the Pixar rides in the Southern part of Disneyland: Inside Out Emotional Whirlwind, Toy Story Midway Mania!, the Incredicoaster, and of course, the whole Cars land setup of Radiator Springs.
But blah, blah, blah, you don’t care about what’s outside the hotel. What about what’s inside? The 15-story high rise has your regular amenities, plus a rooftop pool for lounging in, a play area, and 479 rooms.
The real draw though is the theming, which Pixar called “immersive” in a statement provided via press release from Disney.
“At Pixar, our mission is to tell great stories,”said Pixar Chief Creative Officer Pete Docter. “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.”
