This summer, Disney California Adventure park proudly celebrates the debut of DisneyŸ-Pixar’s original film, “Inside Out,” with special, pre-parade appearances by the movie’s characters, the five Emotions: Joy, Fear, Anger, Disgust and Sadness.

Arriving just ahead of daily performances of Pixar Play Parade, the “Inside Out” pre-parade brings these five new characters and their colorful, curious world right through the heart of Disney California Adventure park, allowing them to experience for the first time all the sights, sounds, smells and excitement of a day in a Disney park.


Bringing an innovative storytelling approach to audiences, the film “Inside Out” ventures inside the mind of Riley and introduces us to the Emotions that guide her. Based in Headquarters, the five Emotions are hard at work, led by lighthearted optimist Joy, whose mission is to make sure Riley stays happy. “Inside Out” is directed by Academy Award winner Pete Docter (“Monsters, Inc.”, “Up”) and produced by Jonas Rivera (“Up”) with an original score by Michael Giacchino (“The Incredibles,” “Ratatouille,” “Up”).

The “Inside Out” pre-parade begins June 19 and continues daily throughout the summer. You can also catch DisneyŸ-Pixar’s “Inside Out” in theaters everywhere on June 19, 2015.

    • David – There are no plans at this time for the characters to appear in person at Walt Disney World Resort.

  • Hi, everyone! The Emotions will only be appearing as part of this special pre-parade. There are no plans for them to participate in character greetings at this time.

  • What time is this parade? Will there be a meet and greet or photo op?

    • Eleanor – The “Inside Out” pre-parade will run just ahead of performances of Pixar Play Parade, currently running at 5:15 p.m. daily.

  • Awwww, does that mean we aren’t going to get a chance to actually meet them in the parks?

  • Awesome! Will they also be meetable? Or will they just be in the parade?

  • Very cool! It’s going to be really fun to see them in the park.
