    I am about to book Paradise Pier over Christmas but I just heard the pools and restaurants aren’t open. Do you know when they will open?

    Hi there, Margaret! Welcome back to planDisney!

    I see that you've sailed on over to my fellow panelists with your Disney Cruise Line planning needs. I'm happy to welcome you to the Disneyland Resort subset of planDisney

    Any Disneyland Resort Hotel will add a little extra magic to your vacation, especially near Christmas time. I think you'll be very happy at Disney's Paradise Pier Hotel. The Scenic Pool Deck was closed for improvements not too long ago, but I'm thrilled to share that they've wrapped up the scheduled construction and the pool is back for Guests to enjoy!

    Unfortunately, the Surfside Lounge and The Sand Bar are still temporarily closed as part of the phased reopening at the Disneyland Resort. We're not sure exactly when those restaurants will reopen, but I'll keep my ears crossed that it happens before you visit! Keep your eyes peeled to the Disneyland Resort Website for these changes, as well as Disney Parks Blog, where they often announce restaurant openings first! When staying at Disney's Pixar Pier Hotel, there are plenty of dining options nearby, both at Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa and in the Downtown Disney District.

    Have a magical day,
