Everything You Need to Know About Pixar Fest

Pixar Fest is in full swing at the Disneyland Resort in California! This limited time special event is unlike anything Disney has done before! We’ve seen festivals, such as Food and Wine or Flower and Garden (Epcot), but not a one-off celebration quite like this. And there is no greater party planner than Disney. Be sure to check out our guide to MaxPass before your trip! Here’s the scoop on what you need to know before you head out to Pixar Fest!

The Food

For me, the most spectacular part of Pixar Fest is the food. Disneyland went all out with a huge selection of meals, snacks, and sweet treats! We’re going to break it down by location, so you know where to get it all.

The Characters

After you’ve had your fill of all that delicious food, be sure to make time in your day to meet some of your favorite Pixar characters! While many of these characters can be caught roaming the parks, the best  spot to find them is at Pixar Pals in Pixar Pier (Near Paradise Grill). Here’s who’s been spotted so far!

  • Mike & Sully
  • Buzz & Woody
  • Buzz & Jessie
  • Russell & Doug
  • Flik & Princess Atta
  • & Mrs. Incredible
  • Edna Mode
  • Lightening McQueen and Tow-Mater (In Carsland)
    • Keep an eye out for the Cars’ Toystory Makeover at the Carsland Entrance

The Entertainment

A party just isn’t a party without some quality entertainment, and Disney has got it in droves! From nighttime shows to parades, you can see it all!

Together Forever Nighttime Fireworks

Disney parks are famous for their firework displays, and why shouldn’t they? It’s a great way to cap off your day at Disney – with a bang! And the park deliveries once again with Together Forever, a Pixar Nighttime Spectacular. The show incorporates all of the beloved Pixar films and projects your favorite characters right on the castle in Disneyland

Paint the Night Parade

Over at Disney’s California Adventure you can catch the Paint the Night Parade, (aka. Main Street Electrical Parade 2.0). It’s a wonderful nod to the original nighttime parade of Disneyland, updated with groundbreaking technology. I love this parade and while it’s not exclusive to Pixar Fest, it’s still a must for any trip to California Adventure.

Pixar Play Parade

The Pixar Play Parade is a daytime parade that originated at Disney’s California Adventure. It was moved to Disneyland for Pixar Fest, replacing the long-running Soundsational Parade. Floats from Inside Out, Toy Story, Monster’s Inc, and more line Main Street to say hello!

Pixar Pier

And the cherry on top of it all is the opening of Pixar Pier! The re-imagined land will launch the Incredibles themed Incredicoaster and Pixar Pal-A-Round, formerly California Screaming and Mickey’s Fun Wheel. The area opens on June 23rd, along with Lampight Lounge. We’re just a few short weeks away from knowing if our long lost love the Cove Bar was removed in vein.

Around the Parks

There’s even more to check out around the parks, including existing Pixar themed rides and a new monorail wrap featuring characters from Finding Dory and the Incredibles. Be sure to make a stop by Bug’s Land, as it will soon make way for the new Marvel themed land.

  • Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage
  • Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters
  • Toy Story Midway Mania
  • Radiator Racers
  • Tow-Mater’s Jamboree
  • Luigi’s Dancing Buggies
  • Turtle Talk with Crush
  • Heimlich Chew Train
  • Flits Flyers
  • Bugsland rides
