  • FASTPASS Attraction

    Grab a pair of 3-D glasses and you're on your way, taking aim at the targets at the game booths you encounter along the way. Cheering you on will be Woody, Buzz, Rex, Hamm and the Green Army Men. Find a hidden target and you'll rack up even more points as you compete for the highest score. The targets and weapons vary, from rings to darts to baseballs. This ride is all about the details and not a single one was overlooked.

    California Screamin'

    FASTPASS Attraction
    A steel roller coaster, cleverly designed as a wooden thrill ride of old. At blast off you'll go from 0 to 55 miles per hour in 4.7 seconds. This fun-filled ride will take you through twists and turns, with a 108 foot drop and an upside down loop!


    Pixar Pier Updates

    California Screamin' closed on 01/08/18 to be transformed to the Incredicoaster! It will reopen 06/23/18.

    The coaster is expected to get new opening and closing scenes as Edna Mode does a less-than-stellar job at babysitting Jack-Jack. The scream tunnels are being expanded and fully enclosed, with effects inside to continue the story.

    The new queue and entrance will have a mid-century modern look.

    King Triton's Carousel
