    Best viewing area for the Pixar parade.

    Hello, Susan!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, and thanks for asking this great question. I’m happy to hear you plan to visit the Disneyland Resort during Pixar Fest, a celebration of beloved Pixar pals! In addition to the Pixar Play Parade, you can catch the new “Together Forever – A Pixar Nighttime Spectacular” fireworks show in Disneyland Park, plus the popular Paint the Night parade in Disney California Adventure Park. I just visited the resort for the first weekend of these magical limited-time offerings and thoroughly enjoyed them all!

    There are so many wonderful spots to view the parade route, which spans from the area near “it’s a small world” all the way down Main Street, U.S.A. My family watched from a curbside spot near Refreshment Corner and Jolly Holiday Bakery Cafe. It was a great place to see the parade floats headed our way with a view of Sleeping Beauty Castle and Matterhorn Bobsleds in the background!

    If you wish, you can book a Plaza Inn Dining Package, which allows you to enjoy a lunch plus reserved viewing from a prime spot on Main Street, U.S.A. for the Pixar Play Parade. The special menu for this dining and entertainment experience includes fried chicken, white cheddar macaroni and cheese, lemon-thyme green beans, watermelon salad, chocolate-caramel pudding and a beverage. Salmon and vegetarian options for adults and kids’ meals are also available. Guests receive a voucher with each meal that provides access to a reserved viewing area for the parade, plus a festive Pixar-themed souvenir lanyard.

    I hope this helps, Susan. Please don’t hesitate to ask any other questions you may have as you continue to make your pixie-dusted plans!

    Wishing you magic,
