What’s New at Disneyland this Summer

As you might have heard, the Disneyland Resort is filled with more celebrations, festivities and magic than ever before. With Pixar Fest already spreading its cheer — and the debut of Pixar Pier — you’re bound to make unforgettable memories in 2018. Because we don’t want you to miss out on any of the fun, we’ve partnered with Get Away Today to give you everything you need to know about traveling to Disneyland this summer.

Pixar Fest

From now until September 3rd, 2018, you’ll be able to experience the celebration of a lifetime at Pixar Fest. Here you’ll be able to see your favorite Pixar stories come to life with Pixar-themed décor, merchandise, entertainment and more.

Be Our Guest

As part of the celebration, you’ll be able to try delectable treats that were made exclusively for the festivities. With over 50 food items to choose from, you’ll have a hard time picking! If you’re in the mood for a savory option, you might want to try the Habanero Meatball Cone at the Cozy Cone Motel or the Cheeseburger Pizza at Alien Pizza Planet. If you’d rather satisfy your sweet tooth, you can indulge in such options as the Yodeling Cowgirl Cinnamon Pretzel or an Alien Macaron. Whichever treat you try, we know you’re sure to love it.

What to Watch

In addition to all of the sweets and eats, you’ll also be able to experience old and new entertainment. The Pixar Play Parade returns to Disneyland in a new location! Not only will you be able to dance and sing with all of your favorite Pixar pals, but you’ll also be able to enjoy festive floats depicting scenes from UP, Inside Out and more. Plus, you’ll be able to catch the return of the popular Paint the Night Parade, now located in Disney’s California Adventure theme park. Enjoy thousands of bright and colorful LED lights, joyful music and appearances from some of your favorite Disney and Pixar characters.

To end your day at the Disneyland Resort, be sure to stop and watch “Together Forever — A Pixar Nighttime Spectacular.” This new nighttime show portrays love and friendship, with scenes from beloved Disney-Pixar movies. With jaw-dropping pyrotechnics, projections and memorable tunes, there is something for everyone to enjoy.

Pixar Pier

The grand opening of Pixar Pier took place on June 23rd, 2018. This reimagined area includes new attractions, dining options and entertainment. Disney has created four new neighborhoods to make this section easier to navigate: Incredibles Park, Toy Story Boardwalk, Pixar Promenade and Inside Out Headquarters. One of the most anticipated attractions at Pixar Pier is the Incredicoaster. If you were sad about California Screamin’ leaving, turn that frown upside down. This high-speed attraction takes riders on an adventure with the Incredible family as they journey to save Jack-Jack. With new elements and surprises in store, we can’t wait to ride this attraction over and over again!

Food Galore at the Pier

Pixar Pier also includes new quick-service restaurants where guests can pick up a sweet treat or bite to eat. Along the Pixar Promenade, choose from kiosks like Señor Buzz Churros, Angry Dogs, Poultry Palace and Adorable Snowman Frosted Treats. If you’re looking for a more unique dining experience, you’ll want to stop by the Lamplight Lounge. This restaurant serves gastropub food in a casual and unique setting. While you’re feasting on delicious grub, you can also explore what it’s like to be an animator at Pixar Animation Studios. Sketches and knick-knacks created by Pixar artists are displayed around the restaurant for all to see. Who knows? You might even meet a Disney artist while you’re there!
