Pixar Fest is in full swing at the Disneyland Resort! Let’s go take a look at everything there is to offer!

Galaxy’s Edge

Lines to get into the structure are fairly long during the morning.

Galaxy’s Edge is coming along quickly, but I’m sure there’s still a ton of work to be done!

The welcome sign has been changed to Pixar related pals, showcasing Pixar Fest.

While riding the tram, you can see Naples coming along.

Pixar Fest!

Now through September 3rd, you can see Disneyland and Disney California Adventure all decked out in all things Pixar!

The Disney Gallery is home to all things Annual Passholder related! Pixar Fest has these exclusive goodies for Passholders!

A wild banner can be spotted across the way while walking through Main Street.

Rose Gold Minnie ears got so popular that Disney had to add extra precautions so no-one would steal them.

Pixar Pins are being showcased in Main Street’s Pin store.

In Main Street Ice Cream Parlor, you can find the all perfect Salted Carmel Pecan Sundae! If you’re a lover of caramel, I definitely recommend this sundae!

Jolly Holiday Bakery is offering specialty eclairs and a themed adventure tart from Up!

If you’re coming to Pixar Fest, you cannot forget about the lovable Sulley popcorn buckets!

Across from the partner statue, you’re graced with the presence of the dole whip donut and a grape slush!

Early in the morning, New Orleans isn’t very crowded. Maybe it’s because all of the crowds are waiting in line for that dole whip donut.

Splash Mountain

After many months of refurb, Splash Mountain’s time to shine was finally here! After the announcement of the mountain opening on April 14th, crowds raced to ride this attraction, but the ride has been having some bugs and has held off re-opening the attraction till later in the week.

After speaking to a cast member about this tragedy, they clued us in with all the insider information. The ride was working just fine yesterday, but these bugs arose earlier that morning. Chances of the ride re-opening during the week are high, so keep hope!

In Pooh’s Corner, all things sweet for Pixar Fest can be found!

Aren’t these cake pops so adorable?!

If you’re looking for a Winnie the Pooh background for photos, just outside Pooh’s Corner you’re greeted with the emptiness of Pooh and his friends photo-ops. These would make a great background if you’re ever Disney bounding as Winnie the Pooh, or even during Dapper Day!

We’re all waiting for the transformation that’s awaiting Aladdin’s Oasis to the brand new dining place named “The Tropical Hideaway”, but for now, the unused space is just used as a one-person bathroom.

Up and away to Tomorrowland!

Little Green Men Store Command is where you can find Pixar Fest Merch!

Red Rockett’s Pizza Port

Disney managed to pull together a whole new menu, along with new exterior and interior designs in a matter of a week. Let’s take a look at how they did!

Looking behind the sign, the Alien Pizza Planet is covering the old Red Rockett’s Pizza Port sign with 3 pieces of wire. That doesn’t seem very permanent.

The outside doesn’t look all that different.

The same signs are hanging from when Pizza Port wasn’t taken over by Pizza Planet.

Are these new?

Pizza Planet has a very broad, unique menu that includes cheeseburger pizza of all things. Do you think you would try this pizza?

The interior decorations are very cute, but Disney could of put more thought into them instead of just hanging an alien and calling it a day.

The Pixar Play Parade!

Please enjoy these pictures of the parade as a whole!

Fair warning to any photographers, if you’re planning on taking pictures of this parade, be careful for squirting water! If you don’t… then you’ll end up like me in this picture.

 

And that’s a wrap! What did you think of Pixar Fest being in Disneyland and Disney California Adventure? Should it just be one park, or both?

I don’t know about you, but there are times when planning a Disney vacation can be overwhelming! There are so many options, where to stay, when to go, is this the best price. So, I want to introduce you all to Cindy Minor and the team at Small World Big Fun. They will help you plan your Disney vacation for FREE. Contact them today!
