Disneyland With Kids Podcast

Jan 17, 2024

In this episode of the Disneyland with Kids podcast, Becca and Jessica discuss the newly revamped Pixar Place Hotel at Disneyland.

They start by addressing the confusion surrounding the hotel's name, then delve into the need for a refresh of the hotel, highlighting its dated decor and lack of cohesive theming. They describe the lobby's transformation, with Pixar touches throughout and a mobile featuring Pixar characters.

Becca and Jessica also cover the unique elevator system, early entry access, room design, and the Great Maple restaurant. The episode concludes with a discussion of the pool area and fireworks viewing, as well as the upcoming quick-service restaurant in the lobby.
