Pixar Pier Details, name change and more! ~ Disney’s California Adventure
Today we got a new piece of concept art, for Pixar Pier at Disney’s California Adventure and lots of news on what Pixar Pier will be.
The biggest change to note announced today is the re-theme of a park original. California Screamin’ will be part of The Incredibles Zone and thus the coaster will be called “Incredicoaster”. The coaster will get a mid-century-modern-style loading area, new character moments and a new look for the ride vehicles as well!
Toy Story Mania will anchor the Toy Story area of the pier and a neighborhood inspired by “Inside Out” will be found on the western side of the boardwalk. The Inside Out area will feature an all new ride which will be discussed soon! If you look close in the concept above, in the upper right corner we can see what is possibly that new ride!
The 4th neighborhood will be a celebration of many favorites. In this neighborhood, Mickey’s Fun Wheel will have a new look, with each of the 24 gondolas featuring different Pixar characters and the iconic face of Mickey Mouse remaining on the Paradise Bay side of the wheel.
Ariel’s Grotto restaurant and the Cove Bar will be transformed into a new lounge and grill offering sparkling views of Paradise Bay and the new Pixar Pier. Both locations will close Jan. 8, with Cove Bar reopening briefly in April before closing again for its permanent transformation. Guests wishing to reserve “World of Color” dining packages after Jan. 7 may consider Carthay Circle Restaurant or Wine Country Trattoria.
The remaining areas of the land that is now Paradise Pier, including Paradise Gardens, Silly Symphony Swings, Jumpin’ Jellyfish, Goofy’s Sky School, Golden Zephyr and The Little Mermaid ~ Ariel’s Undersea Adventure, will become a new land called Paradise Park.
