Summer 2018 will bring a transformed land for guests to experience at Disney California Adventure park when Pixar Pier opens along the southern shore of Paradise Bay, with newly themed attractions, foods and merchandise throughout. This new, permanent land in the area that is now Paradise Pier will introduce four new neighborhoods representing beloved Disney·Pixar stories.
The first neighborhood is inspired by Disney·Pixar’s “The Incredibles” and it will open in summer 2018 with the Incredicoaster. Permanently transformed from the attraction that is now California Screamin’, Incredicoaster will invite guests into a mid-century-modern-style loading area where they board vehicles with a distinctive, new look. New character moments, new scenes and special effects, and an exciting musical score will connect the attraction’s story to Pixar’s “The Incredibles 2,” which opens in theaters June 14, 2018. To prepare for this transformation, California Screamin’ will close January 8th, 2018.
Toy Story Mania will anchor the “Toy Story”-inspired neighborhood. A neighborhood inspired by “Inside Out” will be found on the western side of the boardwalk and will welcome a new family-friendly attraction, scheduled to open at a later date.
The fourth neighborhood will be a celebration of many Pixar stories. In this neighborhood, Mickey’s Fun Wheel will have a new look, with each of the 24 gondolas featuring different Pixar characters and the iconic face of Mickey Mouse remaining on the Paradise Bay side of the wheel. At the Games of the Boardwalk, which already includes the Bullseye Stallion Stampede game, all of the midway games will be inspired by Pixar characters. New games are expected to include characters from “A Bug’s Life,” “La Luna” and “WALL·E.” Mickey’s Fun Wheel, Games of the Boardwalk and Sideshow Shirts will close January 8th to begin this transformation.
Ariel’s Grotto restaurant and the Cove Bar will be transformed into a new lounge and grill offering sparkling views of Paradise Bay and the new Pixar Pier. Both locations will close January 8th, with Cove Bar reopening briefly in April before closing again for its permanent transformation. Guests wishing to reserve “World of Color” dining packages after January 7th may consider Carthay Circle Restaurant or Wine Country Trattoria.
The remaining areas of the land that is now Paradise Pier, including Paradise Gardens, Silly Symphony Swings, Jumpin’ Jellyfish, Goofy’s Sky School, Golden Zephyr and The Little Mermaid ~ Ariel’s Undersea Adventure, will become a new land called Paradise Park.
Pixar Pier will open during the limited-time Pixar Fest celebration, which begins April 13th.

YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! YES!
Why? Just.. Why?
Article seems confusing… Pixar Pier opening Summer 2018 during Pixar Fest starting April 13th. Sounds like the ride and land transformations won’t be complete by the time Pixar fest starts on April 13th. Is the transformation going to be finished in time for Pixar fest kick off in Mid-April?
No, by the Summer which is still technically during the event.
Makes perfect sense to me. It opens Summer 2018 during Pixar Fest which starts April 2018. If he didn’t mention When Pixar Fest starts, people will just say the article is confusing because it makes it sound like Pixar Fest starts Summer 2018
“Pixar Pier will open during the limited-time Pixar Fest celebration, which begins April 13th.”
It will open *during* the event, not at the beginning of it.
This sucks in every possible way.
Incredicoaster? For real? What kind of stupid name is that? And at the expense of one of the best names created for a coaster… i’m kind of ok with the other changes (even if i don’t think paradise pier really needs a rebranding as it is, in it’s semplicity, one of the most iconic and charming themed areas in a disney park), but california screamin’ should have stayed as it is, and not changed to like the worst pixar film ever made only because a second chapter of it is coming out.
To when the change of Soarin’ into a “Planes” attraction. It seems that it’s the only thing the current management can do in California Adventure right now. :(
So the California Screamin rollercoaster wont open back up until April at the earliest? That ruins spring break.
Not even, they are saying Summer.
