New Details And Concept Art Revealed For Pixar Place Hotel At Disneyland Resort

Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel is set to be reimagined and transformed into Pixar Place Hotel at Disneyland Resort! 

Today Disney Parks shared some new artist concept renderings and details…

This 15-story high-rise hotel overlooks Disney California Adventure park. You may have already noticed the hotel’s exterior has a bright new look! While Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel continues to welcome guests during this transition, we want to share a colorful glimpse of what Pixar Place Hotel will look like in the future once the transformation is finished this winter. When complete, Pixar Place Hotel will be the only fully Pixar-themed hotel in the United States!

The lobby will continue to evolve over the next few months and will begin to blend beloved Pixar imagery with the hotel’s contemporary setting. When the transformation is complete, iconic images from Pixar films will be at the front desk, with characters pictured larger than life in curated artwork.

This winter, as guests enter the hotel lobby, they will be greeted by the Pixar Lamp playfully balancing atop its ball!  A whimsical, colorful character-inspired mobile will hang above, welcoming guests to the new, reimagined lobby atrium.

Later this summer, overnight guests can splish and splash at an all-new water play area inspired by “Finding Nemo” where the fan-favorite fish and his friends frolic alongside families. See Crush the sea turtle atop a 186-foot-long waterslide, Hank hanging out at the pop-jet splash pad and more!

Later this year, a family play court will be added to the deck with activities inspired by Pixar’s famous short films. Interactive games and imaginative free play celebrate favorite friends from “La Luna,” “Bao,” “For the Birds,” and “Burrow.” And when it’s time to relax, guests may enjoy food and drinks under the love-struck umbrellas from “The Blue Umbrella.”

By night, the pool deck is the ideal spot to take in amazing views of the Disneyland park fireworks, and lounge by cozy character-inspired firepits with family and friends.

This fall, the hotel will unveil a new restaurant at the resort, Great Maple. This Southern California-based modern American eatery specializes in playful takes on upscale comfort food. Serving breakfast, lunch and dinner all day, the ground-floor restaurant will be easily accessible to hotel guests, local diners and theme park goers!

Signature dishes to start dreaming about? For me, it’s the Buttermilk Fried Chicken & Maple Bacon Doughnuts, the Cajun Shrimp & Cheddar Biscuit Benedict, and the Soda Pop-Braised Baby Back Ribs! Great Maple will also have a full bar including beer, wine and cocktails.

4 Simple But Effective Tips To Keep Your Skin Looking Healthy This Summer

Entering the summer season it becomes even more important for you to be mindful of your skin during the season. Taking care of your skin during the summer is crucial for several reasons. Mainly because the sun’s rays during summer months are stronger, and prolonged exposure can lead to sunburn, premature aging, and an increased risk of skin cancer. By properly caring for your skin, you can minimize the harmful effects of UV radiation.

Hot weather along with increased outdoor activities, which usually happens if you are on summer holiday can cause excessive sweating, leading to dehydration and dry skin. Thus, it’s important to keep your skin hydrated and prevent it from becoming dry, flaky, or irritated.

Taking care of the skin during summer is not as difficult as you might imagine. Some easy things you can do to protect your skin better are as follows!

1. Avoid Bathing With Hot Water

hot shower with flowing water and steam

Bathing with hot water can indeed help you feel relaxed and calm. But keep in mind if it’s done too often, it can harm your skin. Even more during the summer season, you should avoid bathing with hot water because it can remove the oil on the skin so it is prone to dryness. Take a shower for a maximum of 15 minutes and use only lukewarm water.

Afterward, apply body lotion immediately after bathing when your body is still slightly damp because it can help to lock in moisture better, nourishes the skin, and replaces the oil lost in the shower. Applying lotion while the skin is still wet  will give maximum results.

2. Be Mindful of Your Skincare Routine

For your face, do remember to wash it only with a  to refresh your face and remove the oil on your face that has accumulated overnight. Next, apply moisturizer to the face and neck in a circular motion. Use enough moisturizer so that the face does not feel greasy.

Keep in mind that wearing sunscreen every day is a must, especially so during the summer months! When doing activities outside the home, you can occasionally spray your face with a facial mist to cool and moisturize your skin throughout the day.

At night, remove all your makeup using a remover balm, then wash your face with cleansing soap. You can also apply serum on the face and neck to help restore lost moisture throughout the day. Leave it for 10 minutes to absorb it, before applying night cream thoroughly on the face and neck. Don’t forget to also apply eye moisturizer if you notice the area around your eyes is dry.

If you often spend the days outside, you should also exfoliate your skin twice a week. This can help to open clogged pores and make the skin smooth and bright. Blood circulation to the face also becomes smoother by exfoliating your skin regularly.

3. Eat Foods That Contain High Water Content

Several foods have a higher water content that can also help to maintain your skin health from the inside during summer. Not only are the fruits and vegetables rich in fluids, but it also contains other benefits, such as fiber, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Some examples of food rich in fluids are oranges, berries, tomatoes, cucumbers, grapes, lettuce, peaches, carrots, broccoli, spinach, celery, and watermelon.

4. Drink Lots of Water

Drinking lots of water during the summer season is highly recommended because it can moisturize the body from the inside. Drink at least eight glasses of water throughout the day, and more if you can. If you don’t like drinking plain water, you can add a squeeze of lemon or lime to improve the water taste.

During the summer season, you should pack some tumblers on the go, thus you will always be reminded to bring water and take a sip of it during the day. Not only this will help to improve your skin condition during summer, but it will also help you to save money better because you don’t have to keep purchasing drinks to ease your thirst due to the summer heat.

If you’re currently looking for the best water bottle tumbler, you can check the huge selections that Temu’s shopping site has. You can find water bottles in any size or price, at a very affordable price. Check out Temu’s to stay hydrated in style!

What are the things to avoid during the summer season?

– Avoid drinking sugary and caffeinated drinks such as coffee or soda just to ease the heat, because this will not be good for your skin. They contain natural diuretic substances that can make the body lose more fluids and cause thirst. 

– Avoid smoking because it can make your mouth dry. Not to mention the content of cigars is also dangerous for our bodies, thus staying away no matter what the season is really important.

– Avoid wearing a lot of cosmetics such as foundation and concealer, during the summer days. The combination of heat, dehydration, and heavy makeup can lead to breakouts. If you want to use foundation, BB cream, or CC cream, choose one that contains water and has an SPF of 15.
