A Guide to Pixar Fest at Disneyland

Pixar Fest is all about Celebrating Friendship and Beyond! Both Disneyland and Disney California Adventure are participating in fun-filled Pixar inspired foods and wonderful offerings to keep you entertained all day. This post will be mainly focusing on all things Disneyland related for Pixar Fest, so let’s dive right in!

Sugar, Sweets, and Treats Oh My!

What day isn’t complete without food?! There’s A TON of options for you to choose from! If you’re just feeling popcorn with a drink, Sulley from Monsters Inc. popcorn buckets are for you. They even have a matching Mike sipper to go along with it! Whatever you’re feeling that day, I guarantee there’s going to be something that entices you! There’s everything from sweet to salty to everything in between. Personally, I absolutely recommend the little green alien macarons from Pizza Planet (formerly known as Pizza Port) and my all time favorite Salted Caramel Pecan Sundae located on Main Street!

If you’re looking for a table service meal, Disney’s got you covered. At Carnation Cafe on Main Street, you have the opportunity to bring out your inner Carl Fredricksen from UP and enjoy a T.V. dinner inspired dish. If you’re looking for a dining package for the Pixar Play parade, Disneyland also has that too!

The Pixar Day parade dining package at Plaza Inn (right outside of Tomorrowland) offers a picnic-inspired meal that includes a chicken breast and a leg, watermelon salad, and much more. You’ll be provided with an exclusive FastPass that’ll grant you access to a special viewing area! Download the Disneyland app for a list of full menu items.

Pixar Play Parade

The Pixar Play Parade is a must-see! Some of you might remember when it used to run in DCA. There have been some changes, and new float has been added! Make sure you grab your seat early because this is one show you won’t want to miss! Warning: there is water that gets shot into the audience. I wasn’t totally prepared for that, but overall, this parade is so much fun and the music is very catchy!

Annual Passholder Exclusive Items

You heard it here first! Pixar Fest not only has sights and sounds for everyone, but Annual Passholders have exclusive merchandise! Check out Disneyana where you can find all things Annual Passholder related. That includes exclusive Pixar Fest shirts, mugs, and more! Make sure after grabbing all your AP merch that you head over to Disney’s California Adventure for an exclusive AP corner right across from the Silly Symphony Swings! Lastly for AP’s, refillable souvenir popcorn buckets will be coming at the end of April for all you’re popcorn loving times at Disneyland!

Merchandise

Looking for some sweet Pixar Fest merchandise? Disneyland’s Main Street Emporium has you covered! You can find everything there! Although fair warning, the Emporium does get crowded fast. Select stores throughout the park offer Pixar Fest merchandise like the Little Green Men store in Tomorrowland! For all you pin traders, there’s also a limited release Pixar Fest pin, so make sure you get yours right away!

During Pixar Fest, you’ll never get bored! Grab a map and a show guide on your way in or download the Disneyland app to schedule your day or let your conscience be your guide… to food! Food is always the way to go!  If you get the chance to go to Pixar Fest, let us know what you think of everything!
