    We are thinking of staying at Pixar Pier in July 2024. It sounds like hotel room renovations were not totally complete, will they be by this timeframe? Secondly when staying at Pixar Pier are we allowed to cut thru Grand Californian as needed for parks?

    Hi there, Jerromy! 

    Thanks so much for bringing your Disneyland Resort question to us here at planDisney. I’m happy to hear that you’ve got a summertime trip in the works because there will be so much magic to explore! Booking a stay at the recently-debuted Pixar Place Hotel is a wonderful idea, and I can’t wait to stay at the first hotel that celebrates the films of Pixar Animation Studios! With Pixar-themed furnishings in the Guest rooms, colorful artwork adorning the halls, and whimsical yet modern details in every space, this hotel immerses you in the magic of Pixar’s characters and stories!

    As part of the ongoing transformation of the hotel, it continues to undergo refurbishments, but the bulk of this construction work is centered around the common areas of the hotel. It’s my understanding that all the rooms available for booking as of Jan. 30, 2024 (when the hotel officially became Pixar Place Hotel) have already been updated to the new theming.

    Guests staying at Pixar Place Hotel can enjoy easy access to the Downtown Disney District and theme park gates, including entry to Disney California Adventure Park via a special entrance located right across the street from the hotel! Want to pop over to Corn Dog Castle for a quick bite? With this exclusive entrance, you can have a hand-dipped, made-to-order corn dog in your hand lickety-split! You’re also welcome to enjoy early entry to one of the theme parks on each day of your stay with valid tickets and theme park reservations. Another great perk is watching the Disneyland Park fireworks on select nights along with a synchronized broadcast of the show’s soundtrack from the comfort of the hotel’s third-floor pool deck!

    I hope this helps, and that your visit to the Happiest Place on Earth is pixie-dusted to perfection, Jerromy! Please feel free to come back again with more questions as your planning continues.

    Wishing you magic,
