Pixar Pier will Welcome Four Distinct areas in California Adventure Park.

Set to open on June 23rd, Pixar Pier promises something for every Pixar fan.  We have all fallen in love with the Pixar characters and I’m sure that there are at least one or two you can personally relate to.  This amazing new area in California Adventure Park will bring them all to life.

This is what Disney has announced about the themed areas:

Incredibles Park – Inspired by “The Incredibles,” Incredibles Park will be an inviting plaza featuring mid-century modern design aesthetics. Your Clients will enter through an archway where the iconic Incredibles logo will be seen overhead. Once inside, the new Incredicoaster will take your Clients 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.” Your Clients 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! Your Clients 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 your Clients 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 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.

For an even closer look at the fun, watch this video by Disney:

2017_disneyland_summer-of-heroes

This new adventure blasts guests straight into the “Guardians of the Galaxy” story for the first time ever, alongside characters from the blockbuster films and comics. As Guests help Rocket bust his pals out of the Collector’s Fortress, they’ll experience randomized ride experiences complete with all-new visual and audio effects and music inspired by the popular film soundtracks. They will never know which adventure they’ll get!

There will be even more ways to step into Super Hero stories with Summer of Heroes, May 27 through Sept.10, 2017. Guests can answer the call for this limited-time celebration as they join the Avengers and the Guardians of the Galaxy for all-new epic experiences.

Summer of Heroes will launch these new, year-round experiences:

  • Guardians of the Galaxy: Awesome Dance Off! – Guests may run into the Guardians of the Galaxy on their way to the Milano, with Star-Lord firing up his old-school boom box to get the party started.

  • Super Hero Encounters – For the first time, citizens of Earth will come face-to-face with Groot, one of the Guardians of the Galaxy! Guests can also step up to meet the First Avenger, Captain America, along with everyone’s favorite web slinger, your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man.

And for a limited time, Guests can step up to the challenge with new adventures during Summer of Heroes:

Disneyland Tower of Terror Transformation Underway

For my Disneyland fans and travelers, I have an update on the Tower of Terror Transformation for you…

The huge transformation is now underway in Disney’s California Adventure Park.  The Collector’s Fortress is taking shape at the Tower Hotel.  Disney plans to create an all new adventure in this location and when finalized it will be, Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT!  This new attraction is scheduled to open in the summer of 2017
guardians_tower_model
The picture above is of a model created by Walt Disney Imagineering and will guide the work currently taking place on the exterior of the attraction.  Every shade and detail that you see here will be reproduced in full size as Disney’s Dream Builders bring the Collector’s realm to life in California Adventure at Disneyland Resort.

The “warehouse, fortress-like power plant” (as described by Joe Rohde, Creative Executive, Walt Disney Imagineering) is designed to be intimidating and imposing, but also shimmering and regal.  It will be the ideal location for the Collector to secure and show off his most prized acquisitions, the Guardians of the Galaxy.

This epic new adventure will feature the characters from Disney’s 2014 film, Guardians of the Galaxy, along with the breathtaking free-fall sensation and all-new visual and audio effects.  The music will be inspired by the “Guardians of the Galaxy” film soundtrack.

We have all heard that Disney is working to create a sequel to the original Guardian of the Galaxy film.  It has been speculated that the new film might open in 2017.  Do you think that the opening of the film and the attraction might coincide?

Thank you for reading. My name is Melissa and I am a Disney addict; I am also a travel agent and Florida resident.  Although I visit Disney World with my family almost every weekend, we have been to Disneyland on several locations.  Cars Land is one thing that is unique to Disneyland and draws my family back to the parks repeatedly.  If you are considering a trip to Disneyland, you can book through a travel agent at no added cost and get expert planning tips and assistance.  It all starts with a free quote.
