The fan-favorite “Paint the Night” parade at Disney California Adventure park is currently dazzling audiences during the limited-time Pixar Fest at the Disneyland Resort. This electrifying parade uses more than 1 million brilliant lights, high-energy music and cutting edge special effects featuring many beloved Disney and Pixar pals.

Joining “Paint the Night” on June 23 is a new float inspired by Disney•Pixar’s “The Incredibles” and “Incredibles 2.” The Parr family and their pal Frozone will make their debut in this spectacular parade with high-tech, pop-art effects.

Here’s how the fun and excitement of “The Incredibles” will be brought to life:

  • The dynamic and colorful new float connects both “The Incredibles” and “Incredibles 2,” picking up where the first film left off and portraying the scene that shows the Parr family banding together against the supervillain known as “The Underminer.”
  • Violet Parr uses her super powers to surround herself with a “force field.” It will come to life through a custom-built persistence-of-vision (POV) globe – the first and largest ever to be installed on a Disney parade float.
  • Dash’s super-human speed is captured through an innovative system of 64 individually lit frames, flashing as he races in circles around the float.
  • Mr. Incredible and Mrs. Incredible, along with their pal Frozone, light up the night in new super suits. The suits have been installed and wired by hand and are fully programmable to be in sync with the music and the float lighting.
  • The super suits, designed by eccentric fashion designer Edna Mode, are illuminated with nearly 100 sheets of flexible, miniature LEDs. This is the first time these light-up suits will be worn by any Disney or Pixar character.
  • The chest logos on the Incredibles’ glowing super suits are made up of 60 individually programmable LEDs.

This super float joins “Paint the Night” this summer during Pixar Fest, the limited-time celebration happening now through September 3. Pixar Pier will also welcome guests at Disney California Adventure park on June 23.

Be sure to catch “Incredibles 2” in theaters this Friday, June 15!


  • Super families from everywhere will love this new Incredible float. It sounds and looks “dashing”! Summer is going to get a little more bright during Disneyland’s Paint The Night nighttime show, and I for one wish my superpower was time travel,so I could cross the country in a single bound to view this!

  • As the lead Carpenter who help build this float. I must say it was a challenge. You will be impressed as Jack Jack comes out in his so many forms. The building you will see were difficult but will light up the town. I am proud and look forward to see my work amaze millions as it rolls through Disney.

  • As if Paint the Night doesn’t already have enough to knock your socks off (it does, and then some)…. Can’t wait to see it!

  • I’m so looking forward to seeing this float and the others real soon. It will be my first time watching Paint The Night in person. Thanks to friends doing and sharing their videos I have seen it online.

  • Will Disney California Adventure be doing Paint the Night Electrical Parade during Halloween time?

    I have friends that are coming during Halloween time vs. Pixar Fest.
