Pixar Fest

April 13 - September 3, 2018



Pixar Fest official begins April 13th, but will continue throughout the summer as the makeover of Paradise Pier to Pixar Pier is complete. The event will feature a new fireworks show, two updated parades and a whole lot more.

Together Forever-A Pixar Nighttime Spectacular

This new fireworks show at Disneyland Park boasts dazzling pyrotechnics, memorable music and the theme of friendship. Guests are invited on an emotional journey that begins when Pixar characters meet each other for the first time.

The story is brought to life with projections, fireworks, and special flyovers by Buzz Lightyear and Carl Fredricksen's house.
