This spring, get ready for a limited-time, Pixar-themed event at the Disneyland Resort.
The characters from timeless films like Toy Story, Monsters, Inc. and Up connect together in ways that go much deeper than a movie screen, and their stories of friendship intertwine with our own—making us laugh and cry… and reminding us all of what’s truly important.
Beginning April 13, 2018, Pixar Fest will celebrate these unbreakable bonds at both Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park with a one-of-a-kind celebration featuring the debut of an all-new nighttime spectacular and the return of 2 fan-favorite parades—in addition to new Pixar experiences, Characters, décor, atmospheric entertainment, limited-edition merchandise, and themed food & beverage options.
So, come spring 2018, go for the laughter and go for memories. But most importantly, go for friendship… and beyond! Pixar Fest will be a celebration of all the Pixar characters you love. It’s only at the Disneyland Resort… and it’ll only last for a limited time!
A new nighttime spectacular and the return of a high-energy parade await at The Happiest Place on Earth!
Beginning April 13, 2018, Together Forever – A Pixar Nighttime Spectacular will light up Disneyland Park like never before with dazzling pyrotechnics, musical themes from the films and, most importantly, the timeless theme of friendship—ever-present in most Pixar stories.
Together Forever will celebrate the everlasting bonds forged by beloved pals. As the show unfolds, you’ll be invited to embark on an emotional journey that starts when unlikely Pixar characters meet, set out on adventures and overcome obstacles together.
Watch in wonder as the story comes to life through projections at iconic park locations: Sleeping Beauty Castle, the water screens of the Rivers of America, the façade of “it’s a small world” and the buildings of Main Street, U.S.A. The nighttime spectacular will even culminate in a special castle flyover by Buzz Lightyear!
But Pixar Fest doesn’t stop there…
Also beginning April 13, 2018, the Pixar Play Parade will make its way through Disneyland Park for the very first time. This beloved parade will begin as most Pixar stories do—with a first-time appearance by the adorable Pixar lamp, followed by new show elements starring Characters from Up and Inside Out.
With every magical moment that’s to come—alongside current attractions like Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters and Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage—Pixar Fest will surely be an unforgettable event. Be on the lookout for more details in the future!
Welcome the Paint the Night parade to Disney California Adventure Park—and so much more!
Beginning April 13, 2018, the popular Paint the Night parade returns… only this time around, it’s at Disney California Adventure Park! This mesmerizing procession will spotlight many Pixar stories, including characters from Toy Story, Monsters, Inc. and Cars—in addition to an all-new Pixar story joining the parade later in 2018.
And that’s not the only experience arriving at Disney California Adventure Park during Pixar Fest!
Pixar Shorts—a new film festival taking place throughout much of Pixar Fest—will offer rotating favorites such as For the Birds and Lava at the Sunset Showcase Theater in Hollywood Land.
Meanwhile, the Paradise Gardens area will feature a new Pixar-themed musical troupe, Character Greeting opportunities, and crafts and activities for your little ones.
So prepare yourselves for all that’s new—as well as fan-favorites already in the park like Radiator Springs Racers in Cars Land, Toy Story Midway Mania! and fun for your grubs in “a bug’s land”—when Pixar Fest debuts on April 13, 2018!
