This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

Earlier we brought you a sneak peek at the Blue Sky Cellar models and concept art at Disney California Adventure. Now that the exhibit space is open to the public, we have a super close-up look at the new Pixar Pier model plus additional concept art and art of the upcoming Paint the Night Incredibles float. Let’s dive right in.

Signage uses the Pixar Pier font.

First-person perspective walking past Incredicoaster entrance. Note the Incredibles logo in the middle of the coaster’s loop.

Detailed look at the exterior of Knick’s Knacks, which replaces Treasures in Paradise.

“Resplendent jewel tones…”

Very cool metalwork adorns the front of the awning in this concept art.

Exterior design of the boardwalk shops.

Site plan overhead view. Note the spinner ride located within the coaster track, where Maliboomer used to be.

First glimpse of what the interior of Lamplight Lounge will look like. Also note the alternate concept for the entrance arch.

It seems the billboards along the entrance ramp will return with Pixar characters. Note the Pixar ball in the middle of the Fun Wheel replacing Mickey.

I can’t be sure which of these I like the best…

Detailed specs for warning sign at the entrance of Incredicoaster.

Jack Jack’s Cookie Yum Yums (or Num Nums).

New design for the Fun Wheel gondolas.

Lots of cool concept art.

In the original idea sketch, the Fun Wheel had the Pixar ball replacing Mickey.

Cool looking Paint the Night float coming in June.

The model thankfully still has Mickey’s face on the Fun Wheel. The Lamplight Lounge exterior matches Knick’s Knacks, though the front ornate metalwork of the awning seems to be missing. Also note the Pixar Pier logo instead of the Incredibles logo inside the coaster loop.
