Paradise Pier Hotel at Disneyland Resort may be facing replacement as leaked images have revealed potential plans, including concept art, for a “Toy Story”-themed hotel.
The first piece of concept art reveals a Toy Story Land-esque porte-cochére, with “building block” supports and pencil stanchions. Luxo Ball lights can be seen overhead.
Inside, statues of Buzz and Woody are the centerpiece of the remodeled atrium. Kites featuring other “Toy Story” friends, such as Forky and Jessie, hang above, and a mural can be seen in the background. Buzz Lightyear’s spaceship can also be seen over the elevator shaft.
The lobby carries on the theme, placing guests at the same scale as toys. A scrabble ceiling hangs over the desks and seating area. A couple of the check-in desks are shaped like Rubix Cubes, and a red Luxo lamp can be seen nearby.
Further beyond, whimsical archways and colorful murals line the halls.
Another piece of concept art reveals a “Partysaurus Rex themed bathtub splash play zone” (above) and a family swimming pool (below).
The last piece shows how the grounds and amenities of the hotel pool area would look with the new theme. The use of the Paradise Pier hotel is interesting when considered in tandem with the released plans for DisneylandForward. The expansion of the current Disneyland Resort area encompassed the hotel and is rumored to include a version of Toy Story Land similar to the one at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
These plans were made pre-pandemic and may have been changed or canceled in the aftermath. Stay tuned for any further updates.
