PHOTO & VIDEO TOUR: Take a break from the road in a “Cars” themed room at Hotel Santa Fe at Disneyland Paris

On a recent visit to Disneyland Paris, we ran into Hotel Santa Fe for a few nights. This was our first time staying at the hotel which had been converted to a Pixar’s Cars theme a few years ago. Check out Tom’s video presentation of the piece below and keep reading for a photo tour.

The first thing we encountered in the bedroom was this storage area, with an included crib for little motorists. The silver pattern resembles a toolbox.

Then, the bathroom immediately made an impression.

The “car wash” style arrow and lights around the bathroom mirror really stand out.

The bathroom had lots of cute ‘Cars’ themed toiletries. We wish we had stuff like that at Walt Disney World Resorts! The first was this Lightning McQueen Piston Cup tissue box.

Then we discovered other Piston Cup designs on shampoo and conditioner bottles. The large body wash bottle did not fit into its intended holder, which was broken.

Finally, Piston Cup paper cups adorned the bathroom sink.

Outside the bathroom is a small table and a mirror.

The frame of the mirror has a southwestern theme appropriate for the “Cars” movies. In reality, it is a remnant of the original rooms.

Then we entered the sleeping area.

Immediately we liked the colorful “Cars” bed runners and the conical lamps.

A photo of Mater asleep was displayed above the bed.

More delicious “Cars” decorations. This character art will look familiar to anyone who has stayed at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort.

Tapered lights and a Rollingstop license plate decorate the headboard.

The nightstand has the bedroom phone and TV remote.

The view through the medium sized window.

We really liked the ‘road and cones’ zigzag pattern of the window curtain and how it still tied in with the hotel’s original theme.

To finish the room, there is a blue 60s car seat and a chest of drawers.

A television sits on the chest of drawers, in front of the familiar metallic pattern of the toolbox.

Finally, a charming cone-shaped lampshade sits on top of one of the lamps from 1992. Behind this is a cone-shaped mirror!

Hotel Santa Fe isn’t one of the prettiest Disney hotels we’ve stayed in, but it’s pretty cute and cozy, also sure to charm any Cars fans you might have at home.
