Transformations coming to Disneyland attractions, hotels and Downtown Disney

ANAHEIM, Calif. (KABC) -- Plenty of new experiences are coming to the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim.

Disney announced Thursday that the Paradise Pier Hotel will soon be undergoing a transformation to give it a new Pixar theme. The reimagining will "weave the artistry of Pixar" throughout the space, including the iconic Pixar Lamp balancing atop its ball in the lobby, as pictured in concept renderings.

A new walkway is also under construction to give guests at the hotel a direct entrance to the Disney California Adventure park.

Disney said guests can also look forward to a new kind of voice assistant that works alongside Alexa on Amazon Echo devices in resort hotel rooms. Officials say "Hey Disney!" is intended to make visits more convenient and enjoyable later this year.
