Disneyland Resort will be getting a much bigger Pixar presence in the near future. During the D23 Expo, Bob Chapek, Chairman of Walt Disney Parks & Resorts, announced some big changes are coming in 2018.
First, Paradise Pier at Disney California Adventure park will become Pixar Pier next summer. This area adjacent to the “World of Color” lagoon, will take on a brand-new look as more favorite Pixar characters and stories come to life on the seaside waterfront, from “The Incredibles,” “Inside Out” and even more “Toy Story.”
Next Pixar Fest, a limited-time, all-things Pixar celebration will launch at the Disneyland Resort in 2018. The celebration will include a new fireworks spectacular, as well as special characters and entertainment experiences. As part of the celebration, Pixar Play Parade will return to the resort, this time in Disneyland Park, and fan-favorite, Paint the Night, will move to Disney California Adventure Park, which has one of Disney’s longest parade routes.
Details are scarce on this one, BUT Bob Chapek, Chairman of Walt Disney Parks & Resorts, shared at the D23 Expo that your favorite Super Heroes are coming to Disney California Adventure park. Soon, the Guardians of the Galaxy will be joined by Spider-Man and the Avengers in what will become a completely immersive Super Hero universe at the park.
These new stories will build around Guardians of the Galaxy — Mission: BREAKOUT! and create a place where you can team up with your favorite Super Heroes like never before.
The Star Wars news coming out of the D23 Expo just keeps getting better! Bob Chapek, Chairman of Walt Disney Parks & Resorts, announced today that a Star Wars-inspired resort will debut as part of the new Disney 360 vacation concept.
According to Chapek, this revolutionary new vacation experience will be a living adventure that allows guests to immerse themselves in an entirely new form of Disney storytelling.
“It’s unlike anything that exists today.” Bob said. “From the second you arrive, you will become a part of a Star Wars story! You’ll immediately become a citizen of the galaxy and experience all that entails, including dressing up in the proper attire. Once you leave Earth, you will discover a starship alive with characters, stories, and adventures that unfold all around you. It is 100% immersive, and the story will touch every single minute of your day, and it will culminate in a unique journey for every person who visits.”
An opening date was not announced but stay tuned for more details coming soon!
