    Is there an estimated refurbishment date for the new Pixar hotel in Disneyland? I’m looking to book for December and see it’s still called by the hotels old name?

    Hey Kristie!

    Welcome to planDisney!

    It’s such an exciting year for the Disneyland Resort with all of the new happenings! The Disney100 celebration at Disneyland Resort is officially in full swing and there are so many new projects on the way as well. The Villas at Disneyland Hotel are currently under construction and should be open sometime in September. Over at The Villas at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa, the rooms will be getting a refresh soon and I can’t wait to see when they’re all finished.

    As you mentioned, Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel is also getting some love and is currently being reimagined into a new Pixar-themed hotel named Pixar Place Hotel. Not a lot of details have been shared just yet, but we do know that there will be a flagship restaurant on the first floor and some of your favorite Pixar pals throughout the hotel. Unfortunately, there has not been a date set for when the refurbishment will be completed. If I were you, I would book your desired dates in December now and keep in touch with the Disney Parks Blog as they will be the first ones to release any updates on Pixar Place Hotel. I imagine that when that announcement is made, reservations will go pretty quickly. If you lock in your December dates now, you could always cancel later, cancellation restrictions apply, if you decide to wait until the reimagining is complete.

    Well Kristie, feel free to check in with us again later once more information is released.

    Remember, always believe in the Magic!
