FROG FAMILY REVIEW
Pixar Place Hotel*

What we love

  • Whimsical Pixar-themed décor inspired by the filmmaking process from concept to fully-formed, beloved characters.
  • Overlooks the Pixar Pier area of Disney California Adventure® Park with convenient access to this park.
  • The rooftop Pixel Pool, Crush’s Surfin’ Slide and Nemo's Cove for tadpoles are all Finding Nemo-inspired!
  • Great Maple, a modern American restaurant offers breakfast, lunch and dinner.
  • Least expensive of the Disneyland® Resort hotels.
  • Conveniently located near Downtown Disney® District for even more dining options, shopping and live entertainment.

Keep in Mind

  • While on Disney property with a dedicated entrance, it is the furthest from Disneyland® Park with a 15-minute walk.
  • Other unofficial hotels are actually closer to the Disneyland parks.
  • Standard occupancy is two (2) adults, so extra occupancy fees may apply if booking with more adults.
  • With only three (3) official Disneyland® Resort Hotels, availability is limited and prices reflect that.
  • The hotel charges $40 per night for self-parking.
  • While there is no on-site spa, guests can book services at the Tenaya Stone Spa at Disney's Grand Californian Hotel®.

Frog Family Tips

  • Request a higher floor for less potential noise from foot traffic and potentially better views.
  • Request a park-side room for views of the Disneyland® Park fireworks from the comfort of your room.
  • Make a scavenger hunt out of looking for the never-before-seen artwork that was created specifically for Pixar Place Hotel!
  • Use the dedicated Disneyland Resort guest entrance to hop over to all the action of Disneyland® Park even quicker!
  • Don’t froget Disneyland Resort guests can enjoy early entry each day to either Disneyland® Park or Disneyland® Park. You can verify your early entry by linking your theme park tickets or passes, theme park reservations and hotel reservations in the Disneyland app.

Best For

  • Families who want a whimsical and restful stay with all the benefits of a Disneyland® Resort hotel at the lowest price.

Pixar Place Hotel Information

Pixar Place Hotel embodies the inspiration, humor and vibrancy of Pixar stories. From the iconic Pixar Lamp atop its ball in the lobby to the bright pops of color throughout the eateries, hallways, shops and guestrooms, everything about this hotel tells you that you're in for a totally unique experience unlike any before! Celebrating the entire design process from sketches to beloved characters, you may even see some never-before-seen artwork from Pixar stories. Plus, both Disneyland theme parks and the Downtown Disney® District are within walking distance.

Guests will enjoy whimsical accommodations with nods to all things Pixar, including lighting that nods to the Pixar Lamp. Pixar Animation Studios artists helped to design artwork specifically for Pixar Place Hotel, including headboard concept art for The Incredibles, Toy Story 3 and more. Some rooms even have views of Disney California Adventure® Park, offering comfy seats to the magic of the fireworks show.

Splash into Pixel Pool, the hotel’s Finding Nemo-themed splash pad and pool area! Enjoy relaxing poolside on loungers and hot-headed fire pit areas, grab a bite to eat or a drink from the pool bar and barrel down Crush’s Surfin’ Slide, a 186-foot-long water slide! Kids will love Nemo’s Cove with pop-jet splash areas while adults can check out the hot tubs to help unwind after a long day of walking around the parks.


Disney will manage attendance through a new theme park reservation system that will require all Guests to obtain a reservation for park entry in advance. Immediately after receiving your hotel reservation confirmation, visit StartYourDisneylandExperience.com to make your Theme Park Reservation.

Important information to know before you go:

  • You can check-in online before you arrive at the hotel to save time, while also promoting physical distancing (you can even check-in online up to five (5) days in advance!). A link to use the online check-in service will be emailed to guests before their visit. If they don’t have a Disney account, they’ll need to create one at Disneyland.com to get started. If you sign up for text services, you’ll receive a text message when your room is ready.
  • For easy and contactless payments throughout their stay, guests can pay for purchases at Disney-operated locations throughout the Resort using their hotel room key with a valid credit card on file.
  • For the most up-to-date health and safety information and precautions check here.
  • Planning to visit a theme park? To enter a park, both a park reservation and valid theme park ticket, for the same park on the same date, are required. Keep in mind: a hotel reservation does not guarantee theme park access (though Disney Hotel Guests do have access to a separate pool), and you’ll need a Disney account to make a separate theme park reservation. Prior to booking, be sure to view theme park reservation availability as park reservations are limited in availability and not guaranteed. You can check the reservation availability here.

Pixar Place Hotel Refurbishments

On January 30, 2024, the reimagined Pixar Place Hotel was officially unveiled! As part of the ongoing transformation, the hotel will continue to undergo some work and we want to make you aware of refurbishments that could take place during your visit.

Be assured that while they work their magic, your comfort and enjoyment are their top priority. Hotel amenities—including the direct entrance for hotel Guests to Disney California Adventure Park—will continue to remain open. To minimize any disruptions to your stay, refurbishment work with the highest potential for noise will be limited to daylight hours.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, and we appreciate your patience and understanding.
