DISNEYLAND is opening a Pixar-themed hotel at the beginning of next year.
Artwork and sketches from fan-favourite movies like Toy Story and the Incredibles will be on display in the hotel.
Instead of building a new hotel from the ground up, Disney overhauled its Disney Paradise Pier Hotel to make way for the Pixar Place Hotel.
The Disney Paradise Pier Hotel was the resort's seaside-themed accommodation complete with Californian broadwalks.
Disney first announced its renovation project for the Disneyland California hotel in 2022.
An article on the Disney Parks Blog wrote: "Pixar Place Hotel will evoke the inspiration and humor that goes into every Pixar film, while celebrating the artistic process.

A new Disney attraction is coming to the UK – and it's not made for kids
"Showcasing early sketches to finished design, the art and decor will highlight vibrant Pixar stories, revealing some never-before-seen artwork."
Inside the hotel lobby, there will be a giant sculpture of Pixar's iconic Lamp balancing on top of a toy ball seen in the Toy Story films.
A mobile will also be suspended above the Pixar Lamp where the early designs and sketches of Disney characters will be featured.
The rooms will also be redecorated with artwork, sketches, and Disney motifs found on bedding, furniture, and headboards.

Other areas of the hotel have also been redeveloped, including the resort's on-site restaurant.
The Great Maple will be an American-style restaurant serving up dishes like buttermilk fried chicken, maple bacon doughnuts, and soda pop-braised baby back ribs.
A coffee shop called Sketch Pad Cafe will also open in the hotel's lobby.
Other features include the new Finding Nemo rooftop pool with a splash pad area, a slide, and fire pits.
While the pool is already open to guests staying at the Disney Paradise Pier Hotel, a new bar called Small Bytes and a play court are expected to open later this year.
The hotel will also have a brand-new gift shop and a fitness centre too.
According to Travel + Leisure, the Great Maple restaurant will open in November with the hotel officially opening in January 2024.
Hotel guests staying at Pixar Place Hotel can enjoy all the perks of staying on-site at a Disneyland Resort hotel, including early park admission.
And this isn't the only Disneyland Park that's opening a brand-new hotel next year.
Earlier this month, Disneyland Paris revealed plans for its Disneyland Hotel following a two-year renovation.
The hotel will be a "fairy tale kingdom fit for beloved Disney Princesses and Princes".
The hotel will have 487 bedrooms and suites as well as other unique experiences and entertainment.
Meanwhile, a brand-new Disney attraction recently opened in London to celebrate 100 years of the Walt Disney Company.
I visited Disney100: The Exhibition, which is housed inside the ExCel in London.
It spans a whopping 20,000 square feet and has 10 sprawling galleries packed full of original props and costumes from some of Disney's most iconic films.
Disney lovers, both old and new, will spend hours pouring over more than 250 rarely-seen artefacts, works of art, costumes, props, and other memorabilia.
