Disneyland Resort Serves Food and Beverage with a Pixar Twist and a Dash of Character at Newly Reimagined Pixar Pier

New culinary experiences, a bayside lounge and Pixar- themed treats are part of the storytelling at Pixar Pier, opening June 23, 2018, at Disney California Adventure Park. The newly reimagined land of Pixar Pier invites guests to step into the worlds of Pixar through exciting attractions, entertainment, creative merchandise and food and beverage offerings.

Pixar Pier features imaginative new neighborhoods and the thrilling Incredicoaster, inspired by the newest Disney•Pixar film, “Incredibles 2.” Guests will discover new culinary experiences throughout Pixar Pier, beginning with the beautiful new Lamplight Lounge and at kiosks all along Paradise Bay.

Lamplight Lounge is a stylish and fun gathering place that welcomes the entire family, with picturesque waterfront views of Paradise Bay both upstairs and downstairs. The California casual gastro-pub cuisine is playfully presented, complemented by unique signature cocktails and exciting new menu items. The Disneyland Resort culinary team has developed dishes such as the carne asada roll with roasted Fresno chili salsa; potato skins with brown butter-caper yogurt, smoked paprika aïoli and Manchego cheese; spinach salad with warm wild mushrooms, soft poached egg, charred onion vinaigrette and shiitake “bacon” served with blue cheese toast; chicken sandwich with spicy chili glaze, vinegar slaw and pineapple butter on a toasted Amish bun; and creamy PB&J roll served with a flower pot of veggies with hummus and fresh fruit.

The Lamplight Lounge décor celebrates the creativity, inspirations and personalities of the artists and storytellers who have brought Pixar films to life. Guests will discover the artistic details that Pixar “regulars” have left throughout the lounge: concept art, a quick sketch on a coaster, memorabilia and collectible toys of beloved Pixar characters.

Also near the entrance of Pixar Pier, is Adorable Snowman Frosted Treats with classic boardwalk soft-serve designed to recall the grand beachfront pavilions of yesteryear. Featuring the adorable Abominable Snowman from Disney•Pixar’s “Monsters, Inc.,” the location serves cones and cups with tasty towering soft serve, available in chocolate, vanilla, and non-dairy lemon.

The Adorable Snowman Frosted Treats also serves up a few specialty treats, such as the Pixar Pier Parfait, a non-dairy lemon soft serve and blue raspberry frozen beverage, and the It’s Snow-Capped Lemon, a non-dairy lemon soft serve with a “snow-cap” of white chocolate.

Guests may also choose from a selection of fountain sodas, with the option to turn any soda into a float with any flavor of soft serve.

The first neighborhood at Pixar Pier is inspired by Disney•Pixar’s “The Incredibles” and is anchored by the thrilling Incredicoaster. Jack-Jack Cookie Num Nums awaits at the exit of the new attraction, enticing guests with the smell of freshly baked cookies and inviting them into a plaza infused with fun and funky mid-century modern aesthetics.

Proceeding to the next neighborhood, guests will discover larger than life flavors themed to Disney•Pixar’s animated “Toy Story” films. At Poultry Palace, inspired by the Pixar short ““Toy Story Toon: Small Fry,” guests will enjoy delicious turkey legs and snap a photo with a fun-sized Emperor Zurg. At Señor Buzz Churros, the popular Disneyland Resort treat is presented with a sweet & crispy Spanish flair.

At Pixar Promenade, Angry Dogs offers hot dogs, chips and beverages in an open-air walk-up location on the waterfront. Anger, the outrageously fun character from Disney•Pixar’s “Inside Out,” stands 35 inches high on a light stand and true to his nature, he is angry. The raging orange-red flames from his forehead appear to roast spicy and regular hot dogs for guests.

Opening later this year, Bing Bong’s Sweet Stuff features Bing Bong, Riley’s imaginary childhood friend from “Inside Out.” Stepping inside, guests will find a fully sculpted Bing Bong sitting in his makeshift rocket wagon crying tears of candy. To his right is Jangles the Clown, offering guests a cooling frozen beverage; and across the shop, Rainbow Unicorn runs the most colorful and cheerful candy corner.

Pixar Pier opens during Pixar Fest, a limited-time celebration that offers creatively themed food and beverage throughout the Disneyland Resort, only through Sept. 3. Inspired by the Pixar stories and characters that guests have come to know and love, Pixar Fest celebrates the theme of friendship and beyond, an ever-present theme in Pixar films.
