Monday evening, hundreds of Disney Parks Blog readers celebrated all things Pixar, including the newly reimagined Pixar Pier in Disney California Adventure park, at the Disney Parks Blog Pixar Party Meet-Up.
The meet-up kicked off with reserved viewing for the dazzling “Paint the Night” parade, one of the exciting elements of the limited-time Pixar Fest going on now at the Disneyland Resort. Following, guests enjoyed a special screening of Pixar’s best-loved shorts at Sunset Showcase Theater (Pixar Shorts Film Festival will resume on July 20).
Then, guests were treated to a lively panel discussion with Imagineers who worked on bringing Pixar Pier to life! Walt Disney Imagineering Executive Producer Jeffrey Shaver-Moskowitz, Creative Director Tracey Noce and Creative Director Debbie Gonzalez shared a bit about the creative inspiration and behind-the-scenes process behind Pixar Pier.
Pixar Pier remained open to event guests after the park closed for the evening. The after-hours party included opportunities to ride attractions—including the thrilling Incredicoaster—taste yummy bites and explore the Pixar-inspired neighborhoods.
