Your Guide to Pixar Fest at the Disneyland Resort!

Kick off your summer 2024 with the best party around - Pixar Fest at the Disneyland Resort! This event runs until August 4th and it is most definitely not too late to join on the fun. Pixar Fest celebrates friendship and beyond by immersing you in the friendships and stories you know and love from classic movies such as Toy Story, Turning Red, Up, Inside Out, Luca and more!

Here is the ultimate guide of what you can expect to experience on your visit to Pixar Fest:

Together Forever - A Pixar Nighttime Spectacular
During Pixar Fest you will be able to cap off your day by experiencing the magic of Pixar storytelling. With this nighttime spectacular that takes you on a heartfelt journey of friendship you will watch as beloved Pixar characters meet, embark on adventures, face challenges, and ultimately create unbreakable bonds. Fireworks will only be set off on select nights however, every night you will be able to enjoy clips of your favorite Pixar movies such as Toy Story, Soul, Inside Out, Up and more through projections found on the buildings of Main Street USA, Sleeping Beauty Castle and “it’s a small world.” Keep your eyes peeled and you may just get lucky enough to catch a glimpse of Buzz Lightyear soaring through the air and Carl Fredricksen’s house from Up floating above Sleeping Beauty Castle.
