Coming summer 2018, Pixar Pier will transform the southern shore of Paradise Bay at Disney California Adventure park with whimsical neighborhoods filled with characters from Pixar stories. Today, Disney is sharing a first look at this transformation through photos of a working model now in use at Walt Disney Imagineering.
Featuring newly themed attractions, foods and merchandise, this area will introduce new neighborhoods representing beloved Pixar stories. The neighborhood inspired by “The Incredibles” will be anchored by the Incredicoaster, which will feature a new mid-century-modern-style loading area inspired by the Parr family home as seen in the upcoming “Incredibles 2.” In the artwork behind the model above, we get an early glimpse at a Toy Story themed attraction with Jessie serving as the marquee, a fast food stand themed to the chicken restaurant from the Toy Story Toons series, Bing Bong inside of his new candy store, and an additional fast food stand (which we couldn’t figure out).
Another of the neighborhoods will be a celebration of many of your favorite Pixar stories. In this neighborhood, each of the 24 gondolas on what is now Mickey’s Fun Wheel will feature different pairs of Pixar pals, and at the Games of the Boardwalk, all of the midway games will be inspired by characters from films such as “a bug’s life,” “WALL·E” and the Pixar short “La Luna.”
Pixar Pier will open summer 2018, during the first-ever Pixar Fest celebration, which begins April 13.
