What Adults Love about Disney's New Pixar Pier

There’s a hot new park that’s just opened at Disneyland, and it’s Pixar Pier! AMA Travel was the only Canadian travel agency invited to get a sneak peek of the park, and we found it’s perfect for kids, families, and even just adults.

We break down just what adults will love about Pixar Pier, such as the super fun rides, all the new food to try (and some drinks as well), and running into some Pixar characters from their childhood.

Pixar Pier's Incredicoaster and Ferris Wheel

The Incredicoaster

The Incredicoaster is based on The Incredibles franchise, and is a must-ride for brave adults. It launches you around the Pier and is a lot of fun!

The Pal-A-Round Ferris Wheel

The Pixar Pal-A-Round is a Ferris wheel with a twist – it’s one of only two Ferris wheels in the states that combine fixed and sliding gondolas, the Pixar Pal-A-Round goes up to 150 feet in the air. If you are on the swinging gondola, it will sway back and forth and can be a bit scary if you aren’t great with heights.

Lamplight Lounge

Pixar Pier's Lamplight Lounge

The new Lamplight Lounge is designed with props and artwork depicting Pixar movies, as well as artwork paying homage to the artists who work there. The lobster nachos are the most talked about food on the menu, and a large assortment of cocktails and mocktails for all adult tastes (and don’t forget your passport). If you have time to wait, you can also try your luck and see if you can get into the private Light Factory room in the back where there are board games to play and framed photos of Pixar artists all drawn by other Pixar artists!

Pixar Pier's Adorable Snowman

Great Photo Opportunities

If you’re into taking photos in front of really great walls, the Pixar Pier has a number of spots for you. Along the promenade beside Adorable Snowman Frosted Treats, the sides of the Poultry Palace, and the purple wall of Senor Buzz Churros are all great – but keep your eyes peeled for more walls and photo opportunities!

All the New Food

Try a Frosty Parfait, a mix of lemon soft-serve and blue-raspberry slush, or stop for cookies and milk at Jack-Jack’s Cookie Num Nums. In fact, Pixar Pier’s selection of new food and treats is almost a reason to go on its own!

Buy Travel Medical Insurance

If you’re travelling outside the province, don’t forget to buy travel medical insurance. It can save you a bundle, and makes sure your loved ones are looked after in an emergency.
