The Amarano Beat

Finding Dory in Burbank, CA

One of the most exciting things about our location in Burbank, California, is our proximity to the amazing events that happen in and around the world-famous Hollywood studios. There’s always something happening! Our staff at Hotel Amarano can’t wait for the upcoming release of the newest Disney Pixar movie, the long-awaited “Finding Dory.”

Flashback to 2003

Remember in 2003 when Disney Pixar released a movie about a clown fish who lost his son and his adventures with a forgetful blue tang fish as they try to find the little guy? That’s right it’s been 13 years since “Finding Nemo” hit the big screen and now on June 17, the world gets to dive back into the ocean for “Finding Dory.” We’ve heard many of our favorite characters from “Finding Nemo” are back plus some exciting new characters we’re sure everyone is going to love. There’s Destiny the whale shark, Hank the octopus (actually a septopus), and Bailey a Beluga whale — good thing Dory knows how to speak whale!

Studio Tours

Dory’s new big-screen adventure comes to you from the Pixar Animation Studios and the Walt Disney Feature Animation Studios right here in Burbank. Hotel Amarano is less than two miles from the Walt Disney Studios, we’re truly in the heart of the entertainment capital of the world. Did you know that during your stay with us you can have your own Hollywood adventure? Several studios located just minutes from the hotel offer tours for guests. You can visit Universal Studios, Warner Bros., Paramount Studios, and Sony Studios.

But we know all Disney fans want to see behind-the-scenes, where the magic of animated movies happens. Walt Disney Studios does not offer an open public tour. However, there are ways to enjoy a behind-the-scenes tour at the Disney Studios. If you’re a D23 Club member, the official Disney fan club, you can take advantage of the Disney Studio tours when they’re offered exclusively to club members. Another option is to get tickets to a live taping of any of the shows filmed at Disney Studios.

Need help finding tickets to a live-show taping or other fun adventure while you’re staying with us at Hotel Amarano? See our 24-hour concierge for assistance. Why not plan to see “Finding Dory” while you’re with us? There are several movie theaters nearby and we’re less than two miles from IMAX. After the movie, come back and dive into our saltwater pool. It’s like being in the ocean with Dory, Marlin, Nemo, and friends, but better.
