This summer the pier along Paradise Bay in Disney California Adventure Park transformed into Pixar Pier. This new re-imagined land brings Pixar characters to life through exciting themed attractions, entertainment and specialty food and merchandise. With four distinct areas, everything found in Pixar Pier celebrates our favorite and beloved Pixar characters and stories. Here is a look at Pixar Pier at Disney California Adventure.
