Disney announced at D23 this past summer that celebrations of Pixar will be coming next year to Disneyland to coincide with the opening of Pixar Pier. Details of those celebrations, coined Pixar Fest, as well as information about the returning parades in both parks have finally been announced so we can start getting excited for next spring! Come celebrate friendship with Pixar pals in 2018!
What most guests are excited about, though, is the return of Paint the Night to California Adventure! To mark the event and tie it to Pixar Fest a new float based on a Disney/Pixar film will be joining the parade, although we won't see it until later on in the year since Paint the Night will be premiering with the rest of Pixar Fest.
On top of all this, a small Pixar Shorts Film Festival will be shown at the Sunset Showcase Theatre in Hollywood Land at California Adventure rotating between showings of the popular shorts "For the Birds" and "Lava". Other activities, crafts, merchandise and more will be involved and more details are expected to come in the proceeding months so keep a look out for more announcements.
