Disneyland Resort reports that it will open the new Pixar Pier at Disney California Adventure Park on June 23, 2018. Also debuting in June, a new float adds superhero fun to the “Paint the Night” parade, with characters from Disney•Pixar’s “The Incredibles.” The news was announced today by Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Chairman Bob Chapek during his presentation at D23 Expo Japan at Tokyo Disney Resort.
This year, Disneyland Resort will host the first Pixar Fest, a limited-time celebration of friendship that begins April 13. The permanent, new land of Pixar Pier, opening June 23, will be centered around the new Incredicoaster, inspired by the newest Disney•Pixar film, “Incredibles 2.”
At Pixar Pier, guests will explore four new imaginative neighborhoods, newly themed attractions, entertainment, encounters with Pixar pals, plus themed food and merchandise, all inspired by beloved Pixar stories.
The “Paint the Night” parade returns April 13 for Pixar Fest, this time at Disney California Adventure. And in June, the nighttime spectacular adds more Pixar fun with the addition of a new float inspired by “The Incredibles.” Mr. Incredible, Elastigirl and Frozone will showcase their superhero awesomeness as they take on their newest threat, the Underminer. Violet, Dash and Jack-Jack also showcase their unique powers in surprising new ways, as shown through dynamic and innovative visual technology. Like the other elements in the parade, this new float will come to life through a series of dazzling LED lights, new music elements and high-tech, pop-art effects inspired by the mid-century-modern style of the films.
