Back during the D23 Expo, aka the Disney convention, Disney announced it would be dedicating a part of Disneyland to Pixar by creating an area called Pixar Pier. Now Disney has released a few more details about the upcoming attractions.
According to the Disney Parks blog, the southern shore of Paradise Bay, which currently houses Paradise Pier, will be dedicated to four neighborhoods based on Pixar.
The Incredibles will get the showiest attraction, with the Incredi-coaster, a roller coaster that will replace California Screamin’ in summer 2018.
After that, the blog states, “The popular Toy Story Mania! will anchor the Toy Story-inspired neighborhood. A neighborhood inspired by Inside Out will be found on the western side of the boardwalk and will welcome a new family-friendly attraction, scheduled to open at a later date.”
As for the fourth neighborhood, it’s a little less defined, but it will replace Mickey’s Fun Wheel and the Games of the Boardwalk with a Pixar theme. The current area will close on Jan. 8, with an opening date to be determined.
As for fans of the current Paradise Pier, fear not: The area, which contains attractions such as Silly Symphony Swings and The Little Mermaid ~ Ariel’s Undersea Adventure, “will become a new land called Paradise Park,” the blog states.
Note that Pixar Pier will appear in Disneyland only. No word on whether the Pixar love will be shared in Disney World.
