Pixar Fest

This Summer Disneyland and Disney California Adventure celebrate all things Pixar and friendship with the new Pixar Fest festivities taking place throughout the Summer.  This is the perfect time for Annual Passholders to reap the benefits of membership and celebrate your own friendship with a handful of not-to-be-missed activities.  For a start, Annual Passholders can save up to 40% off an adult 1-Day Park Hopper ticket perfect for your bestie! In addition, Disneyland is unblocking select dates in June for So Cal Select and So Cal Deluxe Passholders giving you even more opportunities to take part in the fun.   To get you in the mood, here are 5 things to do with your friend during your Pixar Fest visit!

1. Take in the incredible Pixar Fest-themed entertainment – Whether it’s enjoying the super cute Pixar Play Parade during the day or heading to the parks when the sun sets for the dazzling “Paint the Night Parade” Pixar Fest brings many of your favorite stories to life through special offerings that are not-to-be-missed.  You’ll also want to stick around well into the evening to enjoy “Together Forever – A Pixar Nighttime Spectacular” which fills the night sky with incredible pyrotechnics and offers spectacular Pixar-themed projections on to Sleeping Beauty Castle.

2. Try out some Pixar-inspired treats – Disneyland and Disney California Adventure are positively brimming with delicious Pixar-themed eats and treats.  You’ll find something around nearly every corner.  Two of our favorites are the  Fried Bologna Sandwich at Carnation Cafe and the Grape Soda Cake Pop from Trolley Treats.  For a closer look at some of the other fabulous treats on offer check out this article.

3. Pair up! – Many of your favorite Disney•Pixar films are celebrations of friendship.  What better to honor the bond then to bring your bestie along to meet and have your pictures taken with dynamic duos like Buzz and Woody or Mike and Sully!

4. Tap your toes to the sounds of Pixar – For those looking for a lazy afternoon at the parks, we recommend bringing your buddy along to see The Pixarmonic Orchestra at Disney California Adventure Park.  They’ll be on hand to take you through a set list of some of Pixar’s most memorable tunes.  Its a wonderful walk down memory lane!
