Paradise Pier Gets a Pixar Makeover

Perhaps least iconic hotel in Disneyland is getting a makeover that is going to make it shine. This hotel is going to be re themed to reflect Pixar and their iconic films. Already we’ve seen some outstanding concept art that exemplifies all things Pixar. Fun character moments are expected to be in the lobby like the Luxo Lamp on top of the colorful bouncy ball. We can’t wait to check this property out.

Early Park Entry

Disneyland will be opening park gates a little bit earlier than normal. Guests can expect early access, based on the hotel they’re staying in, to get a head start on experiences and attractions.

Constructions is Underway For a New Hotel Walkway

You will soon be able to walk from Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel (soon to be the Pixar hotel) to DCA. The walkway offers guests quick and easy access to the park, much like how the Grand Californian Hotel has easy access to California Adventure Park.

Disney Merchandise Delivery

If you’re saying in a Disneyland Resort Hotel, merchandise pick-ups and delivery is coming back. This perk has been gone since 2020 but is finally returning. This perk really changes the way you shop in Disneyland. With merchandise being delivered straight to your hotel room, you won’t have to lug around merch all day. Have you tried carrying a legacy lightsaber all day? No thank you.

New Restaurants Coming to Downtown Disney

A lot of new changes are coming to Downtown Disney! Frankly, Downtown Disney could use a bit of a facelift so it will be great to finally see new life coming to the district. The west side of Downtown Disney has been under a slow-moving renovation since 2018. According to Disneyland’s website, the area will draw inspiration from “Southern California mid-century modern architecture.” There will be “an open lawn for relaxation and future events, and an even broader and diverse collection of dining and shopping.”

Some of the new restaurants include Din Tai Fung, Paseo and Centric (taking over Catal & Uva Bar), upgrades to Ralph Brennan’s Jazz Kitchen, and finally, Earl of Sandwiches is coming back.

Phew. That’s a lot, but those are the major Disneyland Resort Changes coming soon. For more details, listen to the Parks Academy podcast.
