Pixar Pier Lamplight Lounge Exclusive Coasters

Pixar Pier Lamplight Lounge Coasters

The Lamplight Lounge restaurant, which opened to the public on June 23rd at Disney California Adventure's brand new Pixar Pier, is a Pixar lover's dream location to wine and dine. I personally haven't been lucky enough to visit there quite yet, but I have heard so many rave reviews regarding the food and overall atmosphere; and from the photos and videos I've seen, I can tell the place is classy, sophisticated and oozes that signature Pixar charm. I cannot wait to go! From the subtle details for the hardcore fans, to the not so subtle, the lounge is literally covered with Pixar memorabilia, art, photos, custom furniture, filmmaker mementos, rare displayed merchandise, etc. (even a secret room).

An example of one of the lounge's most charming details can be found right on the coasters that are included for free with your beverages. And what do you know, I just happen to have a complete set of six right here for you to check out! I guess if I can't get to the Lamplight Lounge, the Lamplight Lounge comes to me, right? A huge thanks to my new buddy DisneyLand Nurse (follow him on Instagram HERE) for reaching out to me and offering to send these on over! It was extremely generous and I feel very lucky to have friends through social media who are willing to help me out so often.

Each coaster features a sketch of an iconic Pixar character alongside the artist's autograph. There is the dumpling from Bao (sketched by the film's director, Domee Shi), an otter from Finding Dory (sketched by Pixar concept artist Rona Liu), Mama Imelda from Coco (sketched by Pixar artist Daniela Strijleva), Mr. Incredible (sketched by Pixar artist/animator Tony Fucile), Carl/Russell/Dug/Kevin from Up (sketched by director Pete Docter) and a Pizza Planet alien from Toy Story (sketched by artist/voice actor Jeff Pigeon, who also voiced the squeeze toy aliens in all three Toy Story films). You can even get blank coasters to sketch in your own characters.

On the reverse side of all the coasters, you'll notice the perfection that is the Luxo Jr. lamp and ball as well as the Lamplight Lounge logo. Minimal and classic Pixar!

This is a great little set of coasters— and the fact that they'll hand over all six to you if you ask for the full set there is amazing! Any free Disneyland/world memento is a fun treat and makes for a magical moment, but these are actually super cool, practical and display worthy (like I would have payed money for them). A must have for any Pixar mega fan/collector!

Check out THIS video (by DisneyLand Nurse's YouTube channel, "The Disney Dads") for an exclusive look inside the Lamplight Lounge and some of its yummy food! Have you picked any of these up? Be sure to let me know all your thoughts and/or any questions you might have in the comments below.
