Pixar Pier at Disney California Adventure park at the Disneyland Resort opens next month. The closer we get to that date, the more details we are finding out. We’ve now learned that Pixar Pier neighborhoods will segment the land. There will be four whimsical neighborhoods, inspired by Pixar films, to delight guests to this area!
Incredibles Park: An inviting plaza that features mid-century modern design aesthetics and is inspired by “The Incredibles.” Entering through an archway guests will see the iconic Incredibles logo overhead. This is also where you will find the new Incredicoaster, which will take you on a thrilling race alongside the Parr family. A combination of character figures, lighting, music and special effects will bring all the action to life! And Jack-Jack is there too – Upon exiting Incredicoaster, the Jack-Jack Cookie Num Nums stand will be there, tempting you with freshly-baked treats.
Toy Story Boardwalk: Next to Incredibles Park you will find Toy Story Boardwalk – themed to “Toy Story.” Here you will shrink down to the size of a toy on the fan-favorite Toy Story Midway Mania! You can take a rootin’ tootin’ spin with Jessie the yodeling cowgirl on Jessie’s Critter Carousel(opening in 2019). Appetites big and small will find a fun meal at Poultry Palace, inspired by Pixar’s short, “Toy Story Toon: Small Fry.” And don’t miss the fun-sized Zurg – ready for a photo-op! And finally, make sure you stop by Señor Buzz Churros, where Buzz has switched into Spanish mode to offer this classic treat. ¡Delicioso!
Pixar Promenade: Celebrate the stories and characters from all of Pixar’s films at this charming seaside promenade inspired by classic turn-of-the-century California boardwalks. You won’t want to miss the focal point of Pixar Promenade – the Pixar Pal-A-Round. This guest favorite has undergone some reimagining, but you’ll still find the face of our favorite Mouse on the Paradise Bay side of the wheel. But now, each of the 24 gondolas will feature different pairs of Pixar pals! There is also a chance for guests to test their skills and win at prize at the four colorful game booths at Games of the Boardwalk. Games include Heimlich’s Candy Corn Toss, Wall-E Space Race, La Luna Star Catcher and Bullseye Stallion Stampede.
The promenade will also feature a classic band-shell stage, ideal for musical entertainment acts and encounters with your favorite Pixar characters. Delightful confections, including saltwater taffy and rainbow cotton candy are available at Bing Bong’s Sweet Stuff and for something savory head over to Angry Dogs, where the dogs heat up as Anger from “Inside Out” burns with rage!
Inside Out Headquarters: Last, but certainly not least, Inside Out Headquarters will be located on the western end of the pier. This lush and colorful area is inspired by the Pixar film, “Inside Out. ”This playground for the emotions will feature a whimsical family-friendly attraction, scheduled to open at a later date.
We cannot wait until Pixar Pier opens at Disney California Adventure park on June 23rd! It’s sure to be a place for family fun and excitement for all ages!
