With the news coming out from the Disneyland Resort in which recently we had more information shared by Disney about the upcoming Pixar Fest and Pixar Pier coming towards Disney California Adventure and Disneyland Resort park opening in Summer 2018. Paradise Pier will be transformed towards Pixar Pier made from the announcement at the D23 Expo this past summer with newly themed foods, attractions, and merchandise.
Pixar Fest will be a brand new limited-time celebration with a brand new nighttime spectacular to be shown at the Disneyland Resort park called, “Together Forever-A Pixar Nighttime Spectacular” showcasing the theme of friendship from beloved Pixar films and much more Pixar themed activities to do.
Hoping over towards Disney California Adventure and this permanent take over of the Paradise Pier will introduce four new neighborhoods representing beloved Disney·Pixar stories. Now let’s breakdown the four new neighborhoods for the newest addition towards Disney California Adventure.
Starting off with the first out of four themed neighborhoods will be inspired by “The Incredibles”. “The new Incredicoaster, permanently transformed from the attraction that is now California Screamin’, will open with Pixar Pier in summer 2018. This new experience will feature a mid-century-modern-style loading area, new character moments and a new look for the ride vehicles. To prepare for this transformation, California Screamin’ will close Jan. 8.”

One of the most popular 3-D shooter attractions, “Toy Story Mania!” will anchor the “Toy Story” inspired neighborhood. “A neighborhood inspired by “Inside Out” will be found on the western side of the boardwalk and will welcome a new family-friendly attraction, scheduled to open at a later date.”
“The fourth neighborhood will be a celebration of many of your favorite Pixar stories. In this neighborhood, Mickey’s Fun Wheel will have a new look, with each of the 24 gondolas featuring different Pixar characters and the iconic face of Mickey Mouse remaining on the Paradise Bay side of the wheel. At the Games of the Boardwalk, which already includes the Bullseye Stallion Stampede game, all of the midway games will be inspired by Pixar characters. Mickey’s Fun Wheel, Games of the Boardwalk and Sideshow Shirts will close Jan. 8 to begin this transformation.”

“Ariel’s Grotto restaurant and the Cove Bar will be transformed into a new lounge and grill offering sparkling views of Paradise Bay and the new Pixar Pier. Both locations will close Jan. 8, with Cove Bar reopening briefly in April before closing again for its permanent transformation. Guests wishing to reserve “World of Color” dining packages after Jan. 7 may consider Carthay Circle Restaurant or Wine Country Trattoria.”
“The remaining areas of the land that is now Paradise Pier, including Paradise Gardens, Silly Symphony Swings, Jumpin’ Jellyfish, Goofy’s Sky School, Golden Zephyr and The Little Mermaid ~ Ariel’s Undersea Adventure, will become a new land called Paradise Park.”
Pixar Pier will officially open up during the Pixar Fest celebration beginning April 13th, 2018 with the return of the Pixar Play Parade moving next door towards Disneyland Resort park and the popular nighttime parade of “Paint the Night” going towards Disney California Adventure.
