    If they moved screamin's queue then they could use that space to put some relocated bugs land flat rides in a shaded area too, and it is next to a carousel already so it would fit nicely.

    If they were doing that though, I bet they'd be bragging about it, and they haven't said a peep.

    While I dont agree with your certainty about his sobriety you do have a delightful way with words! I will now spend my evening having thoughts about John Lassetter I never expected to have.

    This really doesn't seem like it was ready to be announced, or if it was, they didn't give us enough info.

    As is, the concept art itself explains my reaction for me.

    This is very true. but they aren't bragging about anything at DCA right now. Very hush lips for anything that isn't on the entertainment schedule.

    Can you really re-theme California Screaming?

    re-reading the blog post makes me sad that this is a permanent thing. I like the theme of Paradise Pier, but I can see why- it's hardly a "California" themed anymore. I wonder if they will transform the Paradise Pier Hotel into Pixar Pier or just re-name it all together. I, for one, would be so happy to see that hotel updated/changed. And after it was pointed out, I DID see the lamp and Pixar Fun Wheel on the released art...dang.

    Oh, I expect that they will wait to rebrand the hotel the Pixar Pier Hotel until they can can figure out a way to get a special entrance from the hotel to the park that would then allow them to increase the prices to Deluxe level.

    Consider yourself Rip Van Winkle... I can't ever see Disneyland getting a value resort... the park is too small for them to worry about trying to fill it by having reasonable hotels.

    I'm expecting them to demolish it and build a new hotel there at some point. It's surprising that it hasn't happened yet.

    I've been told that several times, but I'm going to continue to bury my head in the sand and deny it :)

    I mean, Disney doesn't always make the best business decisions, so there is hope!

    Disneyland has all of the good neighbor hotels around it that they work with...I can't see them making a value resort that directly competes with those...I wish they would! I would stay on property a lot more if they had value resort(s) :)

    With all of the value options nearby, no real reason for Disney to fill that void. Given the high occupancy at their own higher priced hotels, I think it's very likely they'll continue down that higher priced path. The new hotel, rumored for the DTD parking lot, will supposedly be 5 star and I do think that at some point they will demolish Pixar Paradise Pier Potel OR dramatically redo the interior and pool area to bring up the quality and price point. They could even add a brand new tower in the parking lot right behind it.

    I don't think it happens until they build the new hotel. They can't give up that occupancy $$$
