We learned during an opening ceremony for Pixar Place Hotel at Disneyland Resort that Bing Bong from “Inside Out” would be exclusively appearing at the hotel.
Bing Bong at Pixar Place Hotel
Bing Bong, as well as Joy, appeared during the ceremony to greet guests. Bing Bong has never had a meet and greet before, though Joy and Sadness have both appeared in the parks. Lightning McQueen and Miguel from “Coco” were also present during the opening ceremony.
In “Inside Out,” Bing Bong is Riley’s childhood imaginary friend who resembles an elephant made out of cotton candy. He has been left to wander Long Term Memory, where Joy and Sadness encounter him. He is voiced by Richard Kind.
Hotel guests can meet Bing Bong seven days a week by the pool deck, next to the Pixar Shorts Court. Here, he stands on a patch of faux grass colored like the Luxo ball, with his rocket wagon behind him.
