Expect more Pixar-themed rides and thrills this summer at Disney theme parks in California and Florida.
Toy Story Land
Characters from the 1995 movie “Toy Story” — Woody, Buzz Lightyear and the rest of the gang — will appear in a newly created larger-than-life land that resembles Andy’s backyard. Yep, visitors “shrink” to the size of Woody or Buzz as they enter the 11-acre attraction.
Fans will be able to take a spin on the Slinky Dog roller coaster and swirl around with the green Aliens in flying saucers. Also classic toys from the movie — Crayons, Rubik's Cubes, Cooties, Green Army Men — are part of the playtime vibe.
Toy Story Land opened at Hong Kong Disneyland in 2011 and will open at Shanghai Disneyland on April 26.
The pier will open with a new coaster, called the Incredicoaster, based on the upcoming film “Incredibles 2,” which has a June 15 release date, according to a news release.
At the attraction, expect to see four “neighborhoods”: one based on “The Incredibles,” others on “Inside Out” and “Toy Story,” and a fourth one based on a collection of Pixar stories. Mickey’s Fun Wheel will change to reflect a Pixar theme too.
Before Pixar Pier officially opens in June, Disneyland will hold its first Pixar Fest on April 13.
Highlights include a new fireworks show, “Together Forever – A Pixar Nighttime Spectacular”; a Pixar Play Parade, adding characters such as the Pixar Lamp; and “Paint the Night,” a light show with 1.5 million LED lights.
