Guests can celebrate the magic of Pixar Animation Studios during Pixar Fest at Disneyland, Disney’s California Adventure, and Disneyworld. There, they will be able to see beloved characters from Pixar classics like “Toy Story,” “Coco,” “Monsters, Inc.” and “Up” come to life for guests in a new nighttime spectacular, the return of two favorite parades with fresh Pixar surprises, new décor, musical entertainment, creatively themed food and beverage and event merchandise.
Among the new celebrations, guests can take part in “Together Forever – A Pixar Nighttime Spectacular,” “Pixar Play Parade,” and “Paint the Night.” These celebrations are special and unique in their own way and are sure to bring smiles to everyone to sees it.
During the day, guests will be able to enjoy the all-new “Pixar Play Parade.” And the parade begins just as all Pixar films have, along with an appearance by the iconic and adorable Pixar Lamp and yellow Ball from the original Pixar short, “Luxo Jr.” Not only that, but guests will be able to see characters from “Up” as Wilderness Explorer Russell appears astride the colorful flightless bird, Kevin, as Carl Fredricksen and Dug follow behind with Carl’s tethered house floating above. Not only that but Joy and Sadness perched atop colorful memory orbs and Bing Bong from “Inside Out” also join in on the fun.
Over at Disney’s California Adventure, “Paint The Night” makes a spectacular return, with all new high-energy inspired floats by “The Incredibles” and “The Incredibles 2” as well as floats inspired by other Pixar films like “Toy Story,” “Monsters, Inc.” and “Cars.” Mr. Incredible, Mrs. Incredible, and Frozone will showcase their superhero awesomeness as they take on their newest threat, the Underminer. Violet, Dash, and Jack-Jack also showcase their unique powers in surprising new ways, as shown through dynamic and innovative visual technology. These floats will have more 1 million, brilliant LED lights, and they all come to life through dazzling LED lights, new music elements and high-tech, pop-art effects inspired by the mid-century-modern style of the films.
And just before guests call it a night, they are invited to enjoy the new multimedia fireworks show, “Together Forever – A Pixar Nighttime Spectacular.” This new show celebrates the heart of Pixar as it lights up the sky over Disneyland Park, connecting guests with characters they’ve come to know and love. In addition to the dazzling pyrotechnics, there will also be projections on iconic park locations and memorable music, the heartwarming show celebrates the theme of friendship, an ever-present concept in Pixar animation.
