    Great stay

    Hotel was great. We came at 3 after a 3 day softball showcase in Riverside. Our room was not ready and we sat until about 340. It pays to be patient even when tired because they upgraded our room to a park view. We good watch world of color from our room with the tv tuned into the music. The only con about this place is no grab and go food or room service.

    Great Stay

    Pros: Great proximity to the parks, bright and fresh decor, great rooms, opportunities for character meets, pool area Cons: would like a little more selection/variety in food between coffee shop and sit-down, particularly grab/go hot breakfast sandwiches Would stay again!

    Great Pixar Place hotel stay

    remodeled hotel located on Disneyland property. Beds were so comfortable. Appreciated little shelf on wall by side not next to end table. Great feature! Note-my pillow was too firm and thick (new pillows). They got me softer/flatter pillows the next morning. Walk-in shower. Able to see light show from room. Very close to California adventure. The grab and go cafe in lobby had a great selection for breakfast. Wish it was open for evening snacks. Did not use pool or hot tub.

    Very fun hotel

    I’m a travel advisor and have been having a lot of people asking for info about the newly remodeled Pixar Place Hotel. I decided to try it out for myself with my aspiring-animator teen. Absolutely love the theming. Being in the Disney bubble is just something you can’t explain to those who haven’t stayed at one of their hotels. The convenience of the very short walk to the park and Downtown Disney was so great. Go through The Grand Californian and you are at either place in just a few minutes! The security line was so short each time we went through - saved us a ton of time. The early admission to California Adventure was amazing. Follow the signs outside of Grand Californian for the quick entrance! We did quite a few rides before the park even opened to regular guests. We were at the front of the line for Radiator Springs Racers. I expected to have to pay for Individual Lightning Lanes for that one. The hotel itself had great beds and nice shower pressure. I had no issues getting a hot shower at the morning rush time. The pool area is smaller than I expected but the kids that were enjoying it didn’t care. They were having a blast on the water slide even when it was chillier outside. I do have to agree with other posters about the noise issues though. The walls are really lacking sound proofing. Even with a white noise machine we could hear everything from the adjoining room. I’m sure that other room enjoyed my snoring teen as well. Would that cause me from not staying again? Probably not. I really have my eye on The Grand Californian though so I can give a first-hand review of that as well.

    Pixar Place nice

    The renovation of the hotel looks gorgeous and the staff was wonderful. But the bones of the hotel didn’t change. Thin walls. Actually heard our neighbor use the bathroom in the morning. Also using the hair dryer set off the smoke detector I thought because I did my hair in the room instead of the bathroom was why. So the next time I used the hair dryer in the bathroom and it set off the alarm again! I have never have had that happen at any hotel. Maintenance was polite and was timely and efficient. The entrance in DCA was wonderful. And the walk to DL was easy when walking through the grand. Was hoping for more with the pool, but it was just plain. The fireworks viewing area was nice. There was definitely a lack of getting a quick drink late night in the hotel. Great Maple closed at 9. So no night cap for us.
