Overall Rating: 2 Stars
The most successful daytime parade to come out of Disney California Adventure is the Pixar Play Parade which celebrates the wonderful world of the Pixar family - at home in DCA! This upbeat parade can be an excellent way to keep the kids entertained for a while during what can be one of the least productive times of day, but maybe you only need to see it once per trip.
The wide corridor through DCA is perfect for parade viewing so you're likely to have a pretty good view of the show. The music and the performers keep the energy high during the whole parade so it keeps your attention and makes it feel like a real "play" parade.
If it existed, I'd actually give this category 2.5 stars. The two best things about the Pixar Play Parade are the music ("Countdown to fun!") and the acrobats spread between the floats. They are amazing to watch and keep the energy level high. It's also pretty fun to see some characters you never see anywhere else, like the Incredibles. Otherwise, it's just okay.
This parade lasts as long as any other Disney Park parade, but once it's done you'll be kind of glad it's over - particularly since you'll be humming the theme song the rest of your trip ("Countdown to fun!"). Again, one viewing per vacation and you'll be good. Don't worry, the kids will still love it while it lasts!
