Pixar Fest will bring a “Celebration of Friendship” to the parks of Disneyland Resort beginning April 13, 2018.
According to the Disney Parks Blog, “this limited-time celebration of friendship and beyond will feature the debut of an all-new fireworks spectacular and the return of two favorite parades as well as even more beloved Pixar characters, new décor, atmosphere entertainment, themed food and beverage and new merchandise items.”
“Together Forever – A Pixar Nighttime Spectacular” is a new show that will light up the sky in Disneyland park. “In addition to dazzling pyrotechnics and memorable music, the theme of friendship, ever-present in most Pixar films, is celebrated in this nighttime spectacular. Guests are invited to embark on an emotional journey that starts when unlikely Pixar characters first meet. As they set out on adventures and overcome obstacles together, “Together Forever” celebrates the everlasting friendships forged by beloved Pixar pals. The story comes to life through projections on iconic park locations: 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. This nighttime spectacular will even feature a special flyover by Buzz Lightyear at Sleeping Beauty Castle.”
Also on April 13, the amazing “Paint the Night” parade will return, but this time it will be seen in California Adventure park. The parade is an extravaganza of lights and music which tells the story of many Disney tales, as well as those from Pixar. Look for new Pixar elements being added as well.
In Disneyland Park, “Pixar Play Parade” will make its first appearance. The parade will begin with the iconic Pixar lamp and feature favorite characters from Up, Toy Story, and others.
From Disney Parks Blog…. “The Pixar Shorts film festival will feature rotating favorites such as “For the Birds” and “Lava” at the Sunset Showcase Theater in Hollywood Land in Disney California Adventure park throughout most of Pixar Fest. The Paradise Gardens area will feature a new Pixar-themed musical troupe along with Pixar character greeting opportunities as well as crafts and activities for our younger guests.”
Resort rooms are available at Grand Californian, Disneyland Hotel, and Paradise Pier for convenient walking to the parks.
