Disneyland’s California Adventure to open ‘Pixar Pier’ in 2018


Disneyland’s California Adventure theme park in Anaheim plans to open a revamped Pixar-themed part of the park in April 2018 for Pixar Fest, a submit on Disneyland’s web site reveals.

The aptly named “Pixar Pier” — presently working as Paradise Pier — will probably be located “along the southern shore of Paradise Bay,” and can embrace new meals and sights impressed by the movies created by the Emeryville manufacturing studio.

Pixar Pier will function 4 new neighborhoods. The first, themed across the 2004 movie “The Incredibles” and its upcoming 2018 sequel, features a refashioned California Screamin’ coaster, quickly to be known as the “Incredicoaster.”

RELATED: ‘Pixar Fest’ headed to Disneyland in Spring 2018

The different three neighborhoods are modeled after characters and settings from “Toy Story,” “Inside Out” (which can function a family-friendly attraction), and a hodgepodge of different Pixar movies, respectively.

This latter neighborhood will preserve the ferris wheel, now known as Mickey’s Fun Wheel, in addition to the 24 gondolas and carnival-style video games beneath, however all the things will probably be up to date with Pixar nods. The remaining components of the park part will grow to be “Paradise Park.”

Parts of what is presently Paradise Pier will shut on Jan. eight to permit time for the park modifications.
