Director Peter Sohn, who has helmed Pixar films such as “Elemental,” was recently invited to take a tour of the new Pixar Place Hotel at Disneyland Resort.
Disneyland Resort is currently in the process of transforming Disney’s Paradise Pier hotel into the Pixar Place Hotel, and Sohn takes a quick tour of some newly updated areas of the hotel.
The hotel continues to welcome guests during the transformation, with many Pixar-themed design elements being added to public areas such as the lobby, which will eventually have the Pixar Lamp playfully balancing atop its ball.
Outside, families will soon be able to enjoy a “Finding Nemo”-inspired water play area, and a family play court inspired by Pixar’s famous short films.
A new restaurant, SoCal brand Great Maple, will also be offering guests delicious food for breakfast through dinner.
Here is Sohn on his tour, where we get to see the gift shop, and new decor in the lobby, including a special “element” that has been installed into the floor:
