For today’s 12 Days of Disney Parks Christmas treat, we have a first look at a working model of Pixar Pier currently in use by Walt Disney Imagineering.
Coming to Disney California Adventure in summer 2018, Pixar Pier features newly themed attractions, food, and merchandise, and introduces new neighborhoods representing beloved Pixar films.
The Incredicoaster is the highlight of “The Incredibles”-themed area and features a new mid-century-modern-style loading area inspired by the Parr family home as seen in the upcoming “Incredibles 2.”
Another new neighborhood celebrates a variety of Pixar stories. Each of the 24 gondolas on what is currently Mickey’s Fun Wheel will feature pairs of Pixar friends, and all the midway games at Games of the Boardwalk are inspired by characters from films like “a bug’s life,” “WALL·E” and the Pixar short “La Luna.”
Pixar Pier opens in summer 2018 during the first-ever Pixar Fest Celebration, which kicks off on April 13. The new fireworks show “Together Forever – A Pixar Nighttime Spectacular” is included in the celebration, in addition to the return of Pixar Play Parade and “Paint the Night” parade.
