Behind-the-Scenes: Orchestrating the Score for the Incredicoaster at Disney California Adventure Park

Academy Award-winning composer Michael Giacchino, who also scored the music for Disney•Pixar’s “The Incredibles” and “Incredibles 2” films, has come on board to compose the music for the thrilling Incredicoaster, which is set to debut when Pixar Pier opens at Disney California Adventure park on June 23.

Michael has taken his musical themes from the films and adapted them into this high-speed coaster experience. We joined Michael during a recording session with an accompanying orchestra. Most of the musicians were also part of creating the score for the “The Incredibles” and “Incredibles 2.” Check out the video below!

Anchoring the newly reimagined land of Pixar Pier, the Incredicoaster will zoom you along with the Parr family to capture the elusive baby Jack-Jack. The new music adds to the thrill and excitement of this super adventure!

Michael is no stranger to Disney Parks. He has collaborated with Walt Disney Imagineering to create music for attractions such as Space Mountain at Disneyland park, Ratatouille: The Adventure at Disneyland Paris, as well as parts of Star Tours – The Adventures Continue (with legendary composer John Williams) at Disney Parks around the world.

Keep your ears open before you board the attraction — Michael also wrote original music inspired by “The Incredibles” in the queue area.


  • Will there be an alternate experience for the incredicoaster like there is for the subs? For those of us who can’t ride, that would be so cool. There isn’t one for a coaster so far, but incredicoaster sounds like it would be worth it–with the visuals and music.

  • This is really great, that Disney has Michael Giacchino creating music for the parks. I first came across and wholly enjoyed Giacchino’s music from his work on Lost. He is, imho, the next John Williams (along with Jeremy Soule). Keep it up Disney and Michael!

  • Once it opens please please please release it on iTunes and other streamers like you guys did with Guardians Monsters After Dark! So excited for this ride and the music…thank you for releasing the theme park music on albums. WE WANT MORE!!!
