Remember the fluffy pink, imaginary friend from Disney•Pixar’s film “Inside Out”? Well, Bing Bong is opening a new shop at Disney California Adventure park and will be selling what else, but sweet treats, of course! Located along Pixar Pier, Bing Bong’s Sweet Stuff will open later this summer as a delightfully colorful merchandise and confectionery location. In addition to Bing Bong’s sweet candy tears, guests can pick up saltwater taffy and rainbow cotton candy, as well as other must-try sweets!
Today Disney gave us a sneak peek of what you’ll find inside the sweet shop. Take a look!
First off, are these cake pops! If you’ve seen the adorable Nemo and Baby Dory Cake Pops available for Pixar Fest, you’ll be excited to learn that they will be part of a series of seasonal “Buddy” Cake Pops offered at Bing Bong’s Sweet Stuff! Every so often, these pops will change out to feature new characters, such as Wall•E and Eve, or Buzz and Woody. In addition, you’ll find cake pops inspired by “Inside Out,” featuring some of your favorite emotions.
Next up are the awesome apples, like the Rainbow Unicorn Apple or the Bing Bong Apple. These Granny Smith apples are dipped in caramel and chocolate and decorated with colored sugar, fondant and marshmallows, and are definitely treats to satisfy your sweet tooth!
Also available at Bing Bong’s Sweet Stuff will be an array of Pixar-themed popcorn, lollipops and candies, including Lemon Drops, Red Licorice and Sour Apple Balls. Saltwater taffy lovers can enjoy an assortment of flavors like Strawberry Banana and Peaches and Cream. Rainbow cotton candy will also be available in flavors like Blue Raspberry and Orange.
Lastly, the shop will serve Memory Refreshers – frozen drinks that will come in all colors and flavors! One of the drinks is the Rainbow Unicorn, with grape soda, blue raspberry soda, lime, cherry, lemon-lime and rainbow candies. Another one is inspired by Bing Bong himself, Imaginary Pal, which will be made with pink lemonade and grape soda with rainbow cotton candy, topped with a marshmallow flower.
Pixar Pier is opening June 23 at Disney California Adventure park and Disney has shared some photos of the Pixar-themed billboards which will welcome guests at the theme park.
Upon entering Pixar Pier, four large billboards will greet guests as they make their way through the newly reimagined land! Each portrait depicts a beloved Pixar story moment—set in the seaside surroundings of Pixar Pier.
When Pixar Pier opens this summer at Disney California Adventure park, guests will find four whimsical neighborhoods inspired by beloved Pixar stories. Today Disney shared a bit more detail on what guests can expect!
Incredibles Park – Inspired by “The Incredibles,” Incredibles Park will be an inviting plaza featuring mid-century modern design aesthetics. Guests will enter through an archway where the iconic Incredibles logo will be seen overhead. Once inside, the new Incredicoaster will take you on a thrilling race alongside the Parr family. A combination of character figures, lighting, music and special effects will bring all the action to life! Upon exiting the attraction, the Jack-Jack Cookie Num Nums stand will tempt guests with freshly-baked treats.
Toy Story Boardwalk – Adjacent to Incredibles Park, Toy Story Boardwalk will be themed to “Toy Story.” Guests will be shrunk down to the size of a toy on the fan-favorite Toy Story Midway Mania! Jessie the yodeling cowgirl will invite you for a rootin’ tootin’ spin on Jessie’s Critter Carousel (opening in 2019). At Poultry Palace, big appetites and small fries alike can enjoy a fun meal inspired by Pixar’s short, “Toy Story Toon: Small Fry.” There will even be a fun-sized Zurg—perfect for photo ops! You can also stop by Señor Buzz Churros, where Buzz has switched into Spanish mode to offer this classic treat. ¡Delicioso!
Pixar Promenade – This charming seaside promenade inspired by classic turn-of-the-century California boardwalks will celebrate the heartwarming stories and beloved characters from all of Pixar’s films. The focal point of Pixar Promenade will be the Pixar Pal-A-Round. This reimagining of a guest favorite will still include the iconic face of Mickey Mouse on the Paradise Bay side of the wheel. But now, each of the 24 gondolas will feature different pairs of Pixar pals!
Pixar Promenade will also feature the Games of the Boardwalk, offering guests a chance to test their skills and win a prize. The four colorful game booths will include Heimlich’s Candy Corn Toss, Wall-E Space Race, La Luna Star Catcher and Bullseye Stallion Stampede. Also featured along the promenade will be a classic band-shell stage, ideal for musical entertainment acts and encounters with your favorite Pixar characters. Bing Bong’s Sweet Stuff will feature delightful confections, including saltwater taffy and rainbow cotton candy. For some savory bites, head over to Angry Dogs, where the dogs heat up as Anger from “Inside Out” burns with rage!
Inside Out Headquarters – Located on the western end of the pier, the lush and colorful area inspired by “Inside Out” will be known as Inside Out Headquarters. This playground for the emotions will feature a whimsical family-friendly attraction, scheduled to open at a later date.
Pixar Pier opens June 23, 2018 at Disney California Adventure park at the Disneyland Resort.
