POST UPDATED ON FEBRUARY 11, 2018
Friends! We are SO excited about Pixar Pier coming to California Adventure next Summer! In July we shared some information about Pixar Pier that we heard at the D23 Expo, but we’re excited to share even more details about what to expect when Pixar Pier opens! An official opening date was announced after the D23 Expo in Japan on February 11, 2018 – Pixar Pier will open at California Adventure on June 23, 2018!

Pixar Pier Neighborhoods
Pixar Pier will represent four themed neighborhoods from favorite Pixar films! The first neighborhood will be created after “The Incredibles!” The Incredibles neighborhood will be over by California Screamin’, which will will transform into the “Incredicoaster” (the attraction will close January 8, 2018)!
The second neighborhood of Pixar Pier will be where Toy Story Midway Mania is located. Any guesses as to what the theme of this neighborhood might be? That’s right! TOY STORY!
The third neighborhood, created after “Inside Out,” will be located on the west side of the pier and feature a BRAND NEW attraction! So fun!
The final and fourth neighborhood of Pixar Pier (located by Mickey’s Fun Wheel) will be a combination of a few beloved Pixar stories. Mickey’s Fun Wheel will still have the famous Mickey face on the front (we are SO happy they’re keeping Mickey!), but the rest of the ferris wheel will have a new look – all of the gondolas will have a Pixar character design instead of the current Mickey and friends. Mickey’s Fun Wheel will close January 8, 2018.
