Jessie's Critter Carousel

California Adventure’s Paradise Pier will soon be converted to Pixar Pier and we cannot be more excited! Today, we are getting our first look at some of the changes that will be made when Pixar Pier officially opens on June 23 of this year!

One of the many changes will be to King Triton’s Carousel. The Carousel will be re-themed as Jessie’s Critter Carousel. Jessie’s Critter Carousel will bridge the Toy Story neighborhood of Pixar Pier with Toy Story Mania. Unfortunately, Jessie’s Critter Carousel will open than later than Pixar Pier’s opening date of June 23.

Poultry Place

It’s not Disney without turkey legs! And, Pixar Pier will be no exception. Guests visiting Pixar Pier can purchase their beloved turkey legs at the new Poultry Place, formerly Don Tomas Turkey Legs.

Senor Buzz's Churros

Another popular Disney treat is the churro. Guests of Pixar Pier will be able to purchase the sweet snack at Senor Buzz Lightyear.

One of the major changes coming to Pixar Pier will be the re-branding of California Screamin’. When Pizar Pier debuts, California Screamin’ will be The Incredicaoster based on the “The Incredibles.” Guests can expect to find new storytelling from the popular movie on the ride.

Looking for some gaming excitement? Look no further than Games of the Boardwalk which will feature three new  Pixar-themed games. The games will be:

  • Hemlich Candy Corn Toss which was previously Casey at Bat
  • Wall-E Space Spin which was previously Dumbo’s Bucket Brigade
  • La Luna Star Catcher which was previously Goofy About Fishing

A new candy store will also debut at Pixar Pier in the “Inside Out” neighborhood. Bing Bong’s Sweet Stuff is based Bing Bong from “Inside Out.”

Angry Dogs Hot Dogs

Also in the “Inside Out” neighborhood will be the new Angry Dogs Hot Dog Stand.

The current Nick Nack’s is being rebranded as Treasures in Paradise.

Adorable Snowman Frosted Treats

Guests will still be able to enjoy some delicious ice cream under the California Sun. The former Paradise Pier Ice Cream Company will make its Pixar Pier debut as Adorable Snowman Frosted Treats. And, have no fear! The popular lemon-flavored items will remain on the menu. n
