Disneyland Resort has confirmed a new daytime parade, Better Together: A Pixar Pals Celebration!
Pixar Fest returns to the Disneyland Resort from April 26 through Aug. 4, 2024, bringing us together for a celebration of friendship and beyond. From colorful décor and themed menu items to commemorative merchandise, the Disneyland Resort theme parks, hotels, and Downtown Disney District will have a Pixar twist of friendly fun for a limited time.
This festival of friendship is highlighted by heartwarming entertainment featuring Pixar stories. An all-new daytime parade, “Better Together: A Pixar Pals Celebration!”, will debut at Disney California Adventure, and at Disneyland Park, the emotional “Together Forever – A Pixar Nighttime Spectacular” returns with some all-new scenes. During the celebration, guests will encounter new characters such as Ember and Wade from “Elemental,” Red Panda Mei from “Turning Red” and more. Additional entertainment and offerings will be announced at a later date.
Back in September, a casting call was released seeking “Turning Red” character look-alikes, specifically for the band 4*TOWN; Mei’s dad, Jin Lee; and Mei’s best friends — Miriam, Priya, and Abby. Later that same month, another casting call was put out seeking in-line skaters for an unspecified entertainment offering; we now know that these casting opportunities were for the “Better Together” parade.
This will be the first daytime parade at Disney California Adventure since “Pixar Play Parade.” You can watch our video of the parade during its run at Disneyland Park below:
