For more than 20 years, Disney Parks has partnered with Pixar to bring their compelling stories and beloved characters to life for Guests visiting our parks – and this year, we’re happy to share that even more Pixar is coming very soon to both Disney Parks.
Beginning April 13, 2018, the first-ever Pixar Fest will be a celebration of friendship and beyond throughout the Disneyland®Resort. Pixar Fest will feature the debut of the all-new “Together Forever – A Pixar Nighttime Spectacular,” the return of “Paint the Night” parade and Pixar Play Parade as well as even more beloved Pixar characters, new décor, atmosphere entertainment, themed food and beverage and new merchandise items. Opening during Pixar Fest, the newly reimagined Pixar Pier will bring new, whimsical neighborhoods filled with your friends from “The Incredibles,” “Inside Out” and even more favorite pals from “Toy Story.” The centerpiece of Pixar Pier will be the new Incredicoaster, a super combination of character figures, lighting and special effects that will bring the Parr family racing alongside guests in an attempt to catch baby Jack-Jack.
At Walt Disney World Resort in Florida
New Pixar-inspired experiences are set for multiple parks as Walt Disney World® Resort readies its “Incredible Summer” celebration. At Magic Kingdom® Park, Guests can visit Tomorrowland to party with characters from “The Incredibles” – including for the first time, fashionista Edna Mode. Over at Disney’s Animal Kingdom® Theme Park – just in time for the park’s 20th anniversary – a new show inspired by “Up” will star Senior Wilderness Explorer Russell and his furry-friend Dug.
Toy Story Land is also set to open at Disney’s Hollywood Studios this summer. When it opens, Guests visiting this new land will “shrink” to the size of a toy and join in on the fun Woody, Jessie, Buzz, and Andy’s other beloved toys are having in Andy’s backyard. Here, guests can take a ride on the Slinky Dog Dash family coaster, take a spin on Alien Swirling Saucers, or visit a playful guest-favorite – Toy Story Mania!
And just a reminder – we previously shared plans for an attraction coming to the France Pavilion in Epcot’s World Showcase inspired by “Ratatouille.” This attraction will be patterned after the experience in Disneyland Paris. In it, guests will shrink down to the size of Remy and join him on a crazy race through Gusteau’s kitchen and restaurant.
Ratatouille is already the number one-family attraction at Disneyland Paris and will be a great addition to Epcot.
