Sharing Your Guide To Everything Pixar Pier!

Your Guide To Everything Pixar Pier 1

Just got back from one of the best weekends I’ve had at Disneyland Resort yet.  I attended the Media Event for the opening of Pixar Pier, so I was able to see and do everything a couple days before it opened to the public.  So excited to share everything with you!  There’s lots to cover, my apologies in advance for the VERY long post 🙂

Your Guide To Everything Pixar Pier 2

New Pixar Pier Sign

The new Pixar Pier Sign is whimsical, lights up in twinkling lights in the evening and makes you excited to see what’s happening throughout the Pier.

Lamplight Lounge

As you walk through the Pixar Pier sign to your right you’ll find Lamplight Lounge!  It is one of my new favorite Disney Restaurants.  Find my full review of the restaurant HERE.  The Lobster Nachos have stayed on the menu and you can’t miss the Warm Sugared Doughnuts for dessert.

Knick’s Knacks

As you walk under the sign, to the left you’ll find Knick’s Knack’s.  Inside is all kinds of amazing Pixar merchandise.  You are sure to find something you’ll love.

One of my favorite souvenirs I took home was the new Up movie inspired Alex and Ani bracelets.  Find them at Knick’s Knacks and Elisa and Co over in Hollywood Land.  Also available at Disneyland Park’s Emporium where they sell jewelry.

Up Cake Pops

Dug and Russell Cake Pops are brand new for the opening of Pixar Pier, found at Disneyland Park’s Candy Palace on Main Street, U.S.A.  They are the cutest!!

Incredibles Pixar Fest Hat was also available at Knick’s Knacks for opening weekend.  Super cute 🙂

Adorable Snowman Frosted Treats

As you pass Knick’s Knacks, you’ll pass by Adorable Snowman Frosted Treats.  This is a MUST!  Especially for these hot Disney summer days.  Delicious lemon soft serve treats.

You can get the lemon swirl soft serve cone and add white chocolate drizzle to the top if you’d like.  I prefer the lemon-vanilla swirl option.

Your Guide To Everything Pixar Pier

Here’s the Lemon-Vanilla Swirl I love.

Your Guide To Everything Pixar Pier 9

This is the Parfait option which is most popular.  It’s a blue raspberry icee/slush along with the lemon soft serve.  Epic.  You have to try it 🙂

New Billboards

As you pass Adorable Snowman Frosted Treats, you’ll see some of the most amazing new Billboards/murals with some of your favorite Pixar movies featured.  First up is Up!  They’re colorful and make an awesome spot for photos.

Up next is Wall-E and Eva.  Just so so cute.  Wait until you see these in person.

Next you have this cute scene from Finding Dory.

Your Guide To Everything Pixar Pier 7

Last but not least is this Coco scene!

Your Guide To Everything Pixar Pier 14

Incredicoaster

As you keep walking down the pier, Incredicoaster is up next!  The giant new arch is bright, colorful and makes a great spot for photos as well.

This is the view when you walk under the arch and look towards Lamplight Lounge.  These views!

The view of the arch if you are standing directly underneath it 🙂

Ok, let’s talk Incredicoaster.  I am so excited about the new additions.  Plan for long lines, and I can’t recommend MaxPass enough.  For $10 per ticket, you can organize your FASTPASSES right from your smart phone without even going to the ride.  It is my favorite thing ever when riding rides.  Be sure to look into it.

One big tip I have for you, is be sure to ride the coaster during the day and again at night.  You’ll get a totally different experience.  I have to say the night ride is my favorite.

Another thing to know, is when you see Mr. Incredible with a cookie and Jack-Jack towards the end of the ride through the tunnel as you are headed down, be sure to smell the cookie smell.  I missed it my first time when I wasn’t expecting it.  It’s fabulous!

Be sure to check your photo as you leave the ride too.

Jack-Jack Cookie Num Num’s

Right as you exit the Incredicoaster you can find Jack-Jack’s Cookies Stand! This is such a fun addition to the Pier.  My favorite is Jack-Jack Cookie Num Num 🙂  See photos below.

This giant cookie is served warm and is big enough to share.  I had a couple over the weekend, you’ll love this one.  Give it a try.

Warm gooey chocolate chip cookie.  Yes please.

Your Guide To Everything Pixar Pier 21

See?!  Man, now I want another, lol!

Your Guide To Everything Pixar Pier 18

This is the Jack-Jack Shortbread Cookie.  This one was just ok for me.  Good, but I’d take the chocolate chip one first.

This is the Incredicookie.  It’s also gluten-free.  I didn’t try this one, but heard it was good 🙂

Incredibles Characters

In this same area you can meet some of your favorite Incredibles characters.  I got to meet Frozone 🙂

Your Guide To Everything Pixar Pier

Edna the fabulous too!

Your Guide To Everything Pixar Pier 22

Poultry Palace

Poultry Palace is next on your way through the Pier.  You’ll find flavorful chicken drumsticks, corn on the cob, cole slaw and drinks here.

Your meal is served in this adorable little box.

I tried the Chicken Drumsticks and Coleslaw meal.  I really liked it.  Nicely seasoned juicy chicken and a very lightly dressed coleslaw.  Not mayonnaise based dressing, more of a vinaigrette.

Your Guide To Everything Pixar Pier 25

Here’s a little better look at the chicken drumsticks.  Finger lickin’ good 🙂

Your Guide To Everything Pixar Pier 66

You’ll notice that the garbage cans are even perfectly adorable.

Free Food Guide

At the gift shop as you exit Toy Story Midway Mania, you can pick up this Pixar Fest Food Guide for free.  It tells you everything available for Pixar Fest and where to find it!  This is a great guide to have.

Senior Buzz Churros

Senior Buzz Churros is about the cutest little kiosk I’ve seen.  It’s located right across from Toy Story Midway Mania.  Here you’ll find the Caliente Churro and the Cinnamon Sugar Galaxy Churro.

Your Guide To Everything Pixar Pier 31

A closer look at the cute signage.

Here’s what the churros look like.  The Caliente Churro is Red Hot Candy flavored.  I REALLY enjoyed it.  Not really spicy, just has that cinnamon Red Hot Flavor.  The Cinnamon Sugar Galaxy Churro tastes just like a regular cinnamon sugar churro.

Your Guide To Everything Pixar Pier 33

A closer look at the Cinnamon Sugar Galaxy Churro.  Has some added sparkly sugar.

Toy Story Characters

The Toy Story Gang is out and about around the Pier too!  I got to meet cutie pie Jessie!

Angry Dogs

Angry Dogs is the last of the new Food options at the Pier.  It’s located right next to the new Pixar Pal-A-Round, previously called Mickey’s Fun Wheel.  How adorable is the Angry Dogs sign?  Love this.

Your Guide To Everything Pixar Pier 41

Another look 🙂  To the left of the register is where you’ll dress your dog with some spicy ketchup and mustard options.

Your Guide To Everything Pixar Pier 45

The Angry Dog is a spicy hot dog served with Flamin Hot Fries.  This was my favorite of the two dogs.

The Not-So-Angry Dog is a basic hot dog served with potato chips.

I added some Siracha Ketchup to mine.

Your Guide To Everything Pixar Pier 44

Here’s the ketchup/mustard options.

Up Characters

You’ll also find some of the Up Characters greeting guests!  Loves these two cuties Russell and Dug!

The game area was also re-done.  New signage, game decor and prizes.  I was told you can still use your previous rechargeable game cards.

Your Guide To Everything Pixar Pier 61

Pixar Promenade

Love this new Pixar Promenade area.  The band comes out and plays fun music and characters dance with the guests!  Really cute to watch.

Your Guide To Everything Pixar Pier 65

While Bing Bong’s Confectionery is finishing up, you can find Bing Bong on the wall, which makes the perfect little back-drop for photos.  Can’t wait for this one to open later this year!  Oh and this is the Rainbow Cotton Candy available at the carts where they sell ice cream and snacks.

Pixar Pal-A-Round

At the end of the Pier you have the newly named Pixar Pal-A-Round!  It got a nice paint job and new Pixar themed Gondolas.  Super cute.  I still have to keep my eyes closed if I go on the swinging gondolas, lol!

Your Guide To Everything Pixar Pier

Paint The Night Parade

Don’t miss the Paint the Night Parade that happens at Disney California Adventure!  The Incredibles Float was added for the opening of Pixar Pier.  It’s “Incredible!”  One of my favorite parades.

Hope you’ve enjoyed my walk through the Pixar Pier!  I am so excited to take my family back in a couple months to enjoy the magic.  Please let me know if you have any questions, happy to help!

    This looks so cool!! Are some of the foods only offered for a limited time? Do you know where to dine with princesses now that Ariel’s grotto is closed?
