Based on information from the official Disneyland website, the last day of operation for King Triton’s Carousel on Paradise Pier at Disney California Adventure will be March 1, 2018.
The bulk of Paradise Pier is being converted to Pixar Pier, and the carousel is in that heart of that area. California Screamin’, Mickey’s Fun Wheel, the Games of the Boardwalk, and many other shops and restaurants closed on January 8th to start their transformations, but until now the closing date for King Triton’s Carousel hadn’t been released.
Disney has not yet given any details about the future theme of King Triton’s Carousel, but based on sketches that show Jessie standing in front of the attraction, it is expected to be part of the Toy Story neighborhood.
An opening date for Pixar Pier has not been announced.
