Disneyland to open new lounge, host speaker series at Pixar Place Hotel

Creators Club, a new concierge lounge at Disney’s new Pixar Place Hotel, will open on May 24, the resort announced Friday.

The new lounge will have continental breakfast, wine and cheese receptions, beer, sparkling wine, hot bites and desserts in the evening, and a dedicated concierge.

The space, whose décor will pay homage to the collaboration between Walt Disney Imagineering and Pixar Animation Studios, will have concept art, maquettes, and a ride vehicle from Jessie’s Critter Carousel, an attraction in Disney’s California Adventure.

The lounge is only accessible for “club-level guests.” To book a concierge-level room, guests should select a Club Level room during the booking process by visiting this website.
