    We are planning our 2nd trip to DL/DCA for the end of April 2018 so we can experience Pixar Fest. Do you know if the special fireworks show will be on every night of the week or will it only be showing on the weekends? Thanks :)

    Hey Howdy Hey Liza!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I'm so excited you will be making your return to the Disneyland Resort this spring for Pixar Fest! This limited-time extravaganza starting April 13, 2018 will celebrate all of your favorite Pixar stories, films, and Characters at both Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park.

    We are really looking forward to the debut of the Pixar Play Parade at Disneyland Park. There will be new floats and characters inspired by "Up" and "Inside Out" as well as an appearance by the adorable Pixar lamp. In the evenings, the skies will light up with a new Pixar-themed fireworks show: Together Forever - A Pixar Nighttime Spectacular. This new firework and projection spectacle will also conclude with Buzz Lightyear soaring to infinity and beyond above Sleeping Beauty Castle. At this time there is not a schedule for these events so make sure to check the Daily Events Schedule in the next couple months to plan your days. Also note that even if fireworks are scheduled, they can sometimes be cancelled due to inclement weather.

    My absolute favorite part of Pixar Fest is the return of the dazzling Paint the Night parade at Disney California Adventure Park. This mind-blowing parade takes music, light, singing, and dancing to a whole new level with breathtaking floats and costumes featuring many Pixar favorites.

    Be on the lookout for some new food and merchandise items coming as well which may be previewed on the Disney Parks Blog prior to these events.
