When Pixar Pier opens this summer, the colorful worlds of Pixar will get a new home at Disney California Adventure park, offering an exciting mix of entertainment, themed food and beverage, merchandise and attractions.

Guests will find themselves immersed in four whimsical neighborhoods inspired by beloved Pixar stories—including “The Incredibles,” “Inside Out” and “Toy Story.” As we’ve noted previously, the fourth neighborhood will be a celebration of many of your favorite Pixar stories. The focal point of this neighborhood will be the Pixar Pal-A-Round!

This reimagining of a guest favorite will still include the iconic face of Mickey Mouse on the Paradise Bay side of the wheel. However, each of the 24 gondolas will feature different pairs of Pixar pals, including Joy and Sadness from “Inside Out,” Lightning McQueen and Mater from “Cars,” and Miguel and Hector from “Coco.”

When the Pixar Pal-A-Round opens this summer, the attraction will offer breathtaking views of Pixar Pier and beyond!


  • @Michael on April 26, 2018 – The original artist conceptions showed the center being changed to Luxo Jr. However, apparently there was such an outcry from fans that the design reverted back to the Mickey face.

  • Is there any chance that the Mickey face can be replaced with something Pixar appropriate? If the change is going to happen, can it please be complete?
