Pixar Fest









Pixar Fest is open to all guests with valid park admission. Select entertainment may only be offered at one park. Guests wishing to experience all of Pixar Fest will need to have a park-hopper ticket or plan to visit each park on separate days.

Disneyland Park

Pixar Play Parade

From the moment guests see the iconic lamp Luxo, they’ll know they’re in for a treat! It’s the perfect beginning to this special parade that will travel the streets of Disneyland. Featuring characters from Up and Inside Out, this promises to be a parade that will delight all.

Together Forever – A Pixar Nighttime Spectacular

Nighttime at Disneyland is truly magical, and this special show is no exception. Watch as the iconic stories of friendship are told through projections on Sleeping Beauty Castle, water screens on the Rivers of America, the “it’s a small world” facade, and on buildings along Main Street U.S.A.

Disney California Adventure Park

Pixar Shorts Film Festival

Guests visiting Disney California Adventure can stop by the Sunset Showcase Theater in Hollywood Land and enjoy screenings of favorite Pixar Shorts including, Lava and For the Birds. 

Paint the Night Parade

When can we do this again? This April! That’s right, this nighttime parade spectacular is returning to the resort, this time across the esplanade at Disney California Adventure. Join a collection of characters from Pixar favorites including, Toy Story, Cars, Monsters Inc., and more!

Music and More

The Paradise Gardens area will be home to a special Pixar-themed music group ready to entertain guests during this festival.
