Here’s just a taste of what’s in store:
- Together Forever – A Pixar Nighttime Spectacular will light up Disneyland® Park with dazzling pyrotechnics and amazing projections at iconic park locations like Sleeping Beauty Castle, the water screens of the Rivers of America, the façade of “it’s a small world” and the buildings of Main Street, U.S.A.

- Paint the Night parade returns to the Disneyland® Resort, making Disney California Adventure® Park its home! This mesmerizing procession will spotlight many Pixar stories, including characters from Toy Story, Monsters, Inc. and Cars—in addition to an all-new “The Incredibles” float joining the parade later in June.
And on June 23, the area that was known as Paradise Pier at Disney California Adventure® Park will be transformed into Pixar Pier! This new land will introduce four whimsical neighborhoods and a transformation of the old California Screamin’ to the new Incredicoaster!
Here’s a preview of the changes:
- Neighborhood #1 inspired by Disney·Pixar’s “The Incredibles” involves a transformation of California Screamin’ to the new Incredicoaster where the Parr family races alongside guests in an attempt to catch baby Jack-Jack!
- Neighborhood #2 inspired by Disney•Pixar’s “Toy Story” will be developed around the popular Toy Story Mania! attraction.
- Neighborhood #3 inspired by Disney•Pixar’s “Inside Out” will introduce a new and yet unannounced family-friendly attraction that will open at a later date.
- Neighborhood #4 will include Mickey’s Fun Wheel and will celebrate a collection of favorite Pixar stories. Mickey’s Fun Wheel will get a new look with each gondolas showcasing a different Pixar character. The Games of the Boardwalk will also be refreshed to match the new theme.
- Ariel’s Grotto restaurant and the Cove Bar will be transformed into a Pixar-themed lounge.
- All of the remaining areas of Paradise Pier will become a new land called Paradise Park.
