    Is there a more recent update on Paradise Pier construction? We arrive in April and are wondering if the pool will be open again as well as the main entrance.

    Howdy Jennifer! 

    Welcome to planDisney and thanks for coming by with your question. I'm so excited that you have a visit to the Happiest Place on Earth planned for just a couple of months from now! I recently returned from the Disneyland Resort and I stayed at the Paradise Pier Hotel myself! I even spoke with a Cast Member about the ongoing construction. 

    We were all excited when Disney announced that the Paradise Pier Hotel would be re-themed into the Pixar Place Hotel. Even the Cast Members were treated to their own surprise event! Construction is ongoing and Disney maintains an Updates page to keep Guests informed of the latest changes. I'm afraid that there is no official word on when specific portions of the update will be completed. I will say that the Cast Member reported that completing and re-opening the lobby was one of their priorities. 

    Although the pool at the Paradise Pier Hotel is still inaccessible, you and your party may use the pools located at the nearby Disneyland Hotel. I love the theming of their Monorail Waterslides and the Cast Members will even provide transportation to the Disneyland Hotel pools during business hours. As Guests of the Paradise Pier, you also have your own private entrance into Disney California Adventure, which will save you a lot of walking!

    Fun Fact: You will be visiting on April 2, which is the anniversary of Chip and Dale's first appearance in Private Pluto in 1943 (even though they were unnamed in the actual cartoon). If you see them, be sure to wish them a Happy Birthday!

    Jennifer, I wish I could be more specific for you but I hope you found this answer helpful. Please do not hesitate to come by and visit us again here at planDisney for all your Disney vacation planning questions! You've got a friend in me!

    Have a Magical Day!

Meet the Panelist: Al, California

Ahoy there from the heart of Steinbeck Country in central California! I've been visiting the Disneyland Resort since childhood and fell in love with the sense of absolute immersion that the Imagineers have achieved. My favorite attraction is Pirates of the Caribbean because where else can you go from a California day to an evening boat ride in the bayou with "salty old pirates"? I'm a veterinarian and an all-around Disney geek and enthusiast. I'd love to help you plan your next Disneyland trip! Learn More About Al
