Pixar Pier will be made up of four new neighborhoods representing four Pixar stories. The highlight of The Incredibles neighborhood will be the new Incredicoaster (transforming the current California Screamin’, which will close on January 8th).

Toy Story and Inside Out will also be represented in their own neighborhoods and will include a new family-friendly ride in the Inside Out area (opening season not yet announced).

Several Pixar stories will be represented in the fourth neighborhood, which will bring a new look to Mickey’s Fun Wheel (each gondola will feature a different Pixar character). The Games of the Boardwalk will likewise be re-themed with Pixar characters. January 8th is again the closing date for Mickey’s Fun Wheel, Games of the Boardwalk, and Sideshow Shirts so the spots can begin their transformation. [Read more…]
