Pixar Place nice

Excursion532141 on Apr 13, 2024

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.

Would definitely stay again!

Emma B on Apr 10, 2024

We stayed here for two nights over spring break and had the best time! First of all, this is the most "budget" of the three disneh hotels here, but it didn't feel it. The rooms were spacious, clean, and themed fantastically. The bathroom was huge with a lovely shower, and I personally loved the coffee machine with a variety of pods. Luckily, we were there when the weather was nice, so we're able to use the pool twice just after lunch time and never struggled to find beds in the sun. The splash pad looked like great fun for the kids, but you can easily find a seat out of the way if you're there without children. We didn't get a chance to try the food but the menu at the great maple looked nice (albeit pricey!). But of course, your walking distance from downtown disney so there's plenty of choice close to eat. The staff were lovely as all disney staff are and were super helpful. They found us a room hours before we were due to check in which was great. Overall I'd recommend this to anyone!

Disney Disaster

dwsharks (San Jose, California) on Mar 04, 2024

We booked a two night stay and only lasted one night in what I can only describe as the worst hotel stay we have experienced as a family. The walls are so thin that you can hear everything that your neighbor is doing - we knew what scene was happening in Moana when one room had the movie on at midnight. We could hear every late night text notification, cough, and even their white noise machine. It was awful. I requested a different room in the middle of the night and the front desk said they were fully booked and instead sent hotel security. In the morning, When both families on either side of us woke up at 6am, so did we because of the noise. After only around three hours of sleep, I told the front desk we would not be staying another night and we wanted to be moved to a different Disneyland property. We were transferred to the Disneyland Hotel and had a wonderful final night there with a good nights rest. Do not stay here.

Expensive and loud

andyyllin (Bellevue, Washington) on Feb 28, 2024

Place was newly remodeled and everything looks well decorated. The staff and cast members were superb and made everyone felt welcomed. Some floors and areas were still under construction, but we didn't hear any noise in our room from that. However, the noise from the room next door was horrendous. We could hear everything, and they weren't loud, it's just the connecting room setup and poor sound proofing. The pool looked really fun but we didn't get a chance to try it out. Bing Bong also shows up every now and then at the front lobby to greet guests and take pictures. Location is great for DCA since you get your own "secret" entrance to the park and it's a pretty short walk and basically no wait. To Disneyland it's a bit further, either go through Grand Californian or go out the back exit and go north to the west entrance. The fitness center looks pretty unused most of the times I went. They provide some simple snacks and fruits early in the morning, but doesn't seem to be replenished throughout the day. This is a pricey hotel, if it's worth it varies per family. I think the biggest perks are the proximity to the park, and early entry. If you can't make use of it, might as well save some money.

Clean room-great customer service

BeenTo7Continents (Des Plaines, Illinois) on Feb 26, 2024

Now that this hotel has converted from Paradise Pier Hotel to Pixar Place Hotel there were a lot of fun Pixar touches including the statue in the lobby. Customer service was excellent. Room was clean and kept that way. Large room with plenty of storage. Bathroom had that annoying sliding door that hotels favor these days instead of a real one so if that's a privacy issue beware of that. We had an excellent view of California Adventure across the street. This is very close walk to the two Disney Theme Parks and the other two on property hotels as well as Downtown Disney and other local places. We drove to Target to get a 12 pack of soda for our cruise. There was a coffee shop that had pastries in the morning, some snacks in the gift shop and the Great Maple as the main restaurant. This used to be less expensive than the other two hotels on property but now is the same as the Disneyland Hotel.
