The DIS has confirmed that Pinocchio’s Workshop, the childcare facility at the Grand Californian Hotel & Spa, will be closing.
While the Grand Californian is in the middle of a major refurbishment of its rooms and public spaces, Cast Members we spoke to said that the closure is more a result of the space being underutilized. Guests of the Disneyland Resort Hotels were just not using the service.
The last day of operation for Pinocchio’s Workshop is March 11, 2017.
