Previously announced during this year’s D23 Expo, Pixar Fest will take over for a limited time celebration of friendship at Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, Calif., starting April 13, 2018.
This event will feature the debut of an all-new fireworks spectacular, the return of two fan-favorite parades, as well as even more Pixar characters, entertainment, themed food and beverage offerings and new merchandise.
The new fireworks show, “Together Forever – A Pixar Nighttime Spectacular,” will blast off in Disneyland Park starting April 13. The theme of friendship will be strengthened through pyrotechnics, music, and projections on Sleeping Beauty Castle, the water screens of the Rivers of America, the buildings of Main Street, U.S.A., and the facade of “It’s a Small World.” The show will even feature a special flyover above Sleeping Beauty Castle from everyone’s favorite Space Ranger, Buzz Lightyear.
Also on April 13 will be the return of “Paint the Night,” as the popular parade makes its way to Disney California Adventure Park. The parade features many characters from Pixar films including “Toy Story,” “Cars” and “Monsters, Inc.” Another Pixar story will join the “Paint the Night” parade lineup later next year.
At the start of Pixar Fest, “Pixar Play Parade” will march through Disneyland Park for the first time. The parade will begin with a unit featuring Luxo Jr., the iconic Pixar lamp. The parade will also feature new elements from “UP” and “Inside Out.”
The Pixar Shorts Film Festival in the Sunset Showcase Theater in Disney California Adventure Park will feature a rotating lineup including “For the Birds” and “Lava” throughout Pixar Fest. The Paradise Gardens area will also host a new Pixar-themed musical troupe as well as Pixar character meet-and-greets and crafts and activities for younger guests.
Guests can shop an all-new line of Pixar-themed merchandise, including an exclusive Pixar Fest charm bracelet with multiple bracelet options and a variety of charms to mix and match.
