We have been enjoying all of the excitement this weekend at Pixar Fest, but we did take a break to investigate the construction progress being made at Pixar Pier. It’s amazing how far the work has come but it makes sense with the opening date scheduled right around the corner on June 23rd.
The biggest change that we saw is that the Pixar Pier logo is now installed on the newly themed Incredicoaster.
We were watching as Disney’s crew was busy finishing up the paint job.
The Incredicoaster “scream” tubes are now a bright shiny red!
The Incredicoaster station is also progressing along. You can see the finished product in the below artist’s rendering…
Mickey’s Fun Wheel is also getting a makeover, with each of the 24 gondolas featuring different Pixar characters. The previous gondolas have all been removed for the time being. But don’t worry, the iconic face of Mickey Mouse will remain on the Paradise Bay side of the wheel.
Ariel’s Grotto restaurant and the Cove Bar are being transformed into a new location called “Lamplight Lounge” which will eventually offer sparkling views of Paradise Bay and the new Pixar Pier.
Both locations officially closed Jan. 8, but Cove Bar has briefly reopened until the end of May before closing again for its permanent transformation.
Paradise Gardens, Silly Symphony Swings, Jumpin’ Jellyfish, Goofy’s Sky School, Golden Zephyr and The Little Mermaid ~ Ariel’s Undersea Adventure, will all eventually be transformed into a new land called Paradise Park.
