We. Are. HERE… at PIXAR PIER!!!

Pixar Pier

Pixar Pier

The transformation is complete. What was once Paradise Pier in Disney California Adventure in Disneyland Resort is now Pixar Pier — an entire Land made up of four neighborhoods celebrating the fun and friendship represented in the films and characters of the Pixar films.

The Land’s official opening is this Saturday, June 23rd. But we’re here for a special media-only event today and tomorrow so we get to give you a sneak peek!!

Are you ready to join us :) ? Then let’s step into Pixar Pier!

Our first stop is…

Incredibles Park

Incredicoaster

The centerpiece of Incredibles Park is the Incredicoaster, which takes YOU on a race alongside the Parr family to get Jack-Jack back from his escape!

Incredicoaster

And YOU can join us on the coaster on our full ride-through video below! (It’s also on our our DFB YouTube Channel!)

You see, the Incredibles were honored with the coaster in their hometown of Municiberg…

But, as it turns out, both Jack Jack and fashionista Edna Mode were both too short to ride. So, off to the VIP Lounge they went, until Jack Jack made his dash! It’s a wild chase from there…

Twenty-four gondolas feature pairs of Pixar pals. But we’re so happy that the face of Mickey Mouse is still prominently displayed on the Paradise Bay side of the wheel!

The signature Angry Dog is a spicy all-beef hot dog, which comes with a small bag of “Hot Fries.”

But if you aren’t quite hoppin’ mad (or simply spice-averse), you may want to choose the Slightly Annoyed Dog HA! — served with potato chips.

The best part about Angry Dogs? There are different toppings and sauces for your dogs that up the spice level, too!

Spoiler Alert: Angry Dogs provided us with our first Food Hack at Pixar Pier, which we’ll let you in on in our review! But for now, there’s more to see…

The fifty-six critter friends will feature a turtle, snake, buzzard, ram, skunk, raccoon, and more (like two cozy logs that a family of owls will call their home).

Inside Out Headquarters will be located on the western end of Pixar Pier. Look for this colorful “playground for the emotions” to debut a brand new attraction in 2019!
