Pixar Fest debuted at Disneyland Parks on Friday with a multimedia fireworks show and two parades, "Pixar Play Parade" and the lighted "Paint the Night" Parade.
Visitors will see characters from Pixar Animation Studios' films including "Toy Story," "Monsters, Inc.," "Coco" and "Up" at events in Disneyland and California Adventure.
"Together Forever" is the multimedia show in which fireworks light up the sky and projections with music display moments from 19 Pixar films. The Disneyland night event appears over Sleeping Beauty Castle.
The "Pixar Play Parade" in Disneyland starts with the Lamp and yellow Ball that leads off Pixar films. Characters from "Up" and "Inside Out" join the lineup too.
"Paint the Night" Parade makes its way to California Adventure with fresh characters amid the 1 million LED lights depicting characters and tableaux from films. In June, a new float will debut with characters from "The Incredibles" and "Incredibles 2."
Visitors will hear songs from Pixar films performed by the seven-piece Pixarmonic Orchestra as well as "You've Got a Friend in Me" from a variety of performers, including the Disneyland Band, Straw Hatters and other groups.
Starting June 8, the Pixar Pals Dance Party gets under way in Disneyland's Tomorrowland Terrace where characters will mix with the crowds.
And that's not the only Pixar plan for the parks. Pixar Pier, a redo of Paradise Pier, at California Adventure will open June 23.
The main attraction is the Incredicoaster, which will replace California Screamin' with a new Midcentury Modern look. The pier will join the existing Cars Land, A Bug's Land and the Monsters Inc. dark ride.
The pier will feature four "neighborhoods" based on "The Incredibles," "Toy Story," "Inside Out" and a mix of Pixar film stories and characters. The iconic Mickey's Fun Wheel also will get a Pixar makeover with 24 gondolas depicting different characters from the studio's animated films.
