Coming to Disneyland and California Adventure Parks on April 13, 2018, Pixar Fest blends adventure, fantasy and imagination as Disneyland® brings many of Pixar Animation Studio’s most popular stories to life. Here are some notable activities to look out for at Pixar Fest.

Pixar Parades

Pixar Fest will feature the Pixar Play Parade, which includes an appearance from the memorable Pixar lamp from the beginning of many signature Pixar films. You will also see a plethora of characters from notable films including Up and Inside Out.
Furthermore, California Adventure Park will be the home of a new Paint the Night parade. It will showcase beloved characters from Pixar movies such as Toy Story, Monster’s Inc., and Cars. Featuring 1.5 million LED lights, Paint the Night is a masterpiece of fun and illustration.

Pixar is Together Forever

The show, “Together Forever – A Pixar Nighttime Spectacular,” will light up California Adventure Park both with sparks in the air and on the ground. Fireworks highlight this once-in-a-lifetime experience as your favorite Pixar characters will team up to present a show your family will never forget.
Stories will be projected in various park locations including Sleeping Beauty’s Castle, Rivers of America, the buildings of Main Street, U.S.A. and the façade of ‘It’s a Small World.’ And that Buzz Lightyear interaction you were hoping for? You’ll get the chance to see him during his special flyover at Sleeping Beauty Castle. A true wonderland takes shape as familiar Disney® figures unite to keep you entertained and treat you to incredible Pixar experiences all night long.

Shorts That Live Long in Memory

Adding to the fun will be the newly-introduced Pixar Shorts. Popular shorts such as For the Birds and Lava will play at the Sunset Showcase Theater in Hollywood Land. Paradise Gardens will feature a new Pixar-themed musical troupe and character meet-and-greets. Crafts and activities will also be in abundance for your children to enjoy.
