Disney Announces Upcoming Makeovers for Disneyland Attractions, Downtown Disney and Pixar-Themed Hotel
Disney announced Thursday that the resort’s Paradise Pier Hotel will soon undergo a makeover to give it a new Pixar theme. The reimagining will “weave Pixar art” throughout the space, including the iconic Pixar lamp balanced on its ball in the lobby, as shown in concept renders.
A new walkway is also under construction to provide hotel guests with direct entry to Disney California Adventure Park.
Disney said guests can also expect a new kind of voice assistant that works alongside Alexa on Amazon Echo devices in hotel rooms. The company said “Hey Disney!” is intended to make visits more convenient and enjoyable later this year.
Starting in late summer, Disneyland Resort hotel guests will also be entitled to early entry into the parks.
Plus, more shopping and dining experiences are in the works for Downtown Disney.
These changes come as Mickey’s Toontown at Disneyland is getting an all-new look, but will be closed for a year to do so. The attraction closed in March for an “ambitious reinvention” project and is set to reopen in early 2023.
The Walt Disney Co. is the parent company of this resort.
