    I’m very excited for Pixar Fest, and since Coco is a Pixar movie, I was wondering if Ernesto de la Cruz could come to the Pixar Fest, because I really want to physically meet him on my birthday in July, pretty please?!🥺♥️

    Hiya Zoe,

    Welcome to planDisney! Thank you for submitting your question to us!

    I’m so excited for the return of Pixar Fest! “The feeling, so close, you can reach out and touch it. I never knew I could want something so much, but it’s true.” The Disneyland Resort has announced certain Pixar Studios characters - such as Joy, Sadness, Mr. Incredible, and Buzz Lightyear - will make appearances at the celebration. However, there has been no announcement about Ernesto de la Cruz making an appearance.

    I’m sorry if this news makes you feel “un poco loco”! However, the Disneyland Resort sometimes surprises guests with rare character sightings, so there is still hope! If you have downloaded the Disneyland app, you can view which characters are in the park on that day right from the palm of your hand (characters are subject to change)! In the app, simply click on the map, and at the top where it says “Attractions'', click the down arrow. Find “Characters” (it should be listed right below “Attractions”) and click on it. You should be able to see character locations available for meet and greets at both parks! “When you see your moment, you mustn’t let it pass you by. You must seize it!”

    Tip from Tiffany: Did you know that Ernesto de la Cruz made an appearance during the Oogie Boogie Bash at Disney California Adventure Park last year? Guests could go down an interactive trick-or-treat trail and meet the celebrity himself! The Disneyland Resort has not yet announced purchase dates for Oogie Boogie Bash or confirmed if Ernesto de la Cruz will return, so follow the Disney Parks Blog for all the villainous updates! And if you do return to the Disneyland Resort for Halloween Time, we ask that you keep all the “bells” and whistles of any costume to a minimum, as Ernesto de la Cruz is wary of bells. 

    “Remember me, though I have to say goodbye. Remember me.”
