EVERYTHING You Need to Know About Disney’s NEW Festival — Pixar Fest!

It’s finally time for Pixar Fest in Disneyland!

Sadness and Joy from Inside Out

We LOVE a good festival, and this one is especially exciting because it’s brand new! We’re taking you with us to enjoy all the new entertainment, character meet and greets, merch, and so much more! Let’s gooooooo!

Pixar Fest runs April 26 through August 4th in Disneyland Park, Disney California Adventure, and Downtown Disney. The good news is if you’re not there now, you have plenty of time to plan your trip!

Pixar Fest Merchandise

It wouldn’t be a special event in Disneyland without a collection of limited-edition souvenirs! We’re taking you shopping to check out the special collection of Pixar Fest T-shirts, hoodies, mugs, bags, and more!

We spotted the super popular Lug bag — Pixar-themed — at the Emporium for $65!

Disney Is Bringing Us 34 NEW Souvenirs for Pixar Fest!

You’ll have so many options to choose from on your visit (if they aren’t sold out!).

Pixar Fest Character Greetings

Disney is promising us meet and greets with our favorite Pixar characters all around Disneyland Resort during the festival! We’re on the hunt for special, rare characters so stay with us to see who we meet.

We ran into some cool characters from Onward — Barley and Ian Lightfoot!

We saw tons of cool characters on this parade including Luca!

And Joe Garner from Soul was there, too!

Pixar Fest Food

The festival food booths won’t open until May 10th (and you’d better believe we’ll be back to try it all and bring you reviews), but right now, there’s still lots of special food and drinks available around the resort, like this Pineapple Coconut Float inspired by the short Lava. You can get it for $9.29!

Many of your favorite Pixar characters are now in treat form!

We also stopped by Troubadour Tavern to grab the Firetown Mac & Cheese Bites for $11.49!

It might not be an identical twin, but this Mike Wazowski ice cream cone was a fun treat for $9.29 at Gibson Girl Ice Cream Parlor.

And we can’t forget about the delicious BBQ Potato Dog we had at Refreshment Corner for $15.49!

We couldn’t go through our day without getting a churro! We grabbed the Mr. Potato Head Chip Churro for $7.25 near Goofy’s Sky School in Disney California Adventure.
