Pixar Fest is a full-on celebration of friendship represented through the stories and characters of Disney Pixar movies. And IT. IS. ON! all over Disneyland Resort starting today through September 3, 2018!
The fun spans both Disneyland and Disney California Adventure with a celebration that includes a new nighttime spectacular, two returning parades, Pixar characters, themed food and drinks, and more.
Heather Sievers (@diningindisney) has been on the scene, making her way around both parks to take in the sights and bites at Pixar Fest. And we will be sharing reviews of LOTS of the Pixar Fest food soon!
See the full list of food — and everything else you need to know — about Pixar Fest here!
But in the meantime, let’s take a peek at all the fun that officially kicks off TODAY! From Fried Bologna Sandwiches at Carnation Cafe inspired by the Pixar film, Up…
… to Jessie’s Berry Jubilee Funnel Cake (topped with blueberries, strawberries, chocolate cookie crumbles, crème anglaise, white chocolate, and gold-dusted whipped cream) at Stage Door Cafe in honor of Toy Story, there are so many ways to celebrate your favorite Pixar flicks with something that just might become your new favorite food!
We’ll be bringing you reviews of these and more items at the Fest! Take, for instance, the already-famous Carrot Cake Churro found at the Churro Cart in New Orleans Square.
