People planning an adventure or a summer trip to Disneyland Resort are in for a treat. Disney California Adventure theme park in Anaheim is unveiling the Pixar Pier.

What used to be the Paradise Pier of the 17-year-old theme park has been remodeled in to what is now a fun-filled space bursting with restaurants, shops, rides, and arcade games all inspired by Disney Pixar film characters.

Located on the resort's seaside waterfront, the grand attractions of the pier await its visitors from all over the world.

What's Inside The Park

A new lighted sign will welcome guests on the Pier's entrance. Only a few steps into the park, guests will see the Lamplight Lounge, aptly named after Pixar's mascot, Luxo Jr., a humanlike desk lamp that was the star of a digital short by the animation studio.

The former family-friendly restaurant now boasts sophistication with its modern gastropub menu, which features top-of-the-line dishes such as crispy pancetta and roasted tomato lemon-bacon aioli on a toasted focaccia bun and a $23 sandwich made with grilled salmon.

Aside from its long list of cocktails and mocktails, the restaurant also has its versions of ratatouille for vegetarians and potato skins with brown butter-caper yogurt and smoked paprika aioli.

Guests can also purchase food and beverages throughout the park's fittingly named restaurants such as Señor Buzz Churros and Poultry Palace.

Fans of Inside Out, Toy Story, Monsters Inc., Wall-E, A Bug's Life, Ratatouille, Coco, and many more Pixar movies will also be entertained by the park's tributes to these films.

Amusement park rides and attractions such as the Jumping Jellyfish, Golden Zephyr, Silly Symphony Swings, Goofy's Sky School, and The Little Mermaid: Ariel's Undersea Adventure are also worth checking out.

Famous for its unforgettable and iconic fireworks displays, the park will also wow their guests with their new show, Together Forever — A Pixar Nighttime Spectacular.

The Incredicoaster

People who love Mr. Incredible, Elastigirl, and their children will surely enjoy the main attraction of the pier.

What used to be the old California Screamin' coaster is now equipped with features such as brand-new music, special effects, and lighting, which makes it a ride worthy to remember.

Pixar Animation Studios Creative Director Roger Gould told ABC7 News that they have never had an attraction that features The Incredibles anywhere in the globe, and to make one has been on their plan for years.

He added that the timing is perfect. The energy brought by the California Screamin' coaster was fantastic, but it did not have a story line. However, now that the Incredibles family are part of the adventure, it makes it more fun.

The huge effort to turn Pixar Pier into a reality is part of what Disney calls its "Year of Pixar" in its theme parks. The history of Disney and Pixar has spanned 23 years and 20 films, which includes the newly released The Incredibles 2, a blockbuster hit that raked in $180 million in ticket sales.
