Today, the Disney Parks Blog released an article about the new additions and experiences coming to the Disneyland Resort for Pixar Fest. Not a lot has been shared about the length of the event, only that it would be a limited time event. Well today, Disney announced that Pixar Fest will run from April 13th through September 3rd 2018. This is the first time they have revealed how long the event will last.

Pixar Fest is set to debut on April 13th at both Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure. During this event, it will bring the popular Paint the Night parade back to the Disneyland Resort, but this time at Disney California Adventure. At Disneyland, the park will see the return of Pixar Play Parade with some new additions created just for Pixar Fest. The most exciting addition coming in April, would be the Together Forever fireworks spectacular, featuring the projection effects down Main Street USA only used in the Disneyland Forever fireworks show for the 60th Anniversary,

Also during Pixar Fest, Disney California Adventure will debut the new Pixar Pier opening June 23rd 2018. Featuring the California Screamin’ reimaging to the Incredicoaster. And most recently, the update to the Cove Bar and Ariels Grotto restaurant and bar facility, transforming into Lamplight Lounge.

  • Do you expect Pixar Fest to be extended into late summer/early autumn if it is a success through the summer? I’m visiting DLR just after it finishes and it would be a nice addition to the trip. Obviously, some of the key elements will likely remain either way (PtN, Pixar Pier), but the general celebration atmosphere can be a fun extra!

  • So is Paint the Night only returning for the limited time frame? I thought I read it’s permanent home would be DCA?
