    We will be in staying in Disneyland on April 26 (at a hotel in the park). We purchased our tickets through a package, and can’t upgrade to Park Hopper for that date in advance. Which park should we plan to spend the day at to get the most of PixarFest?

    Hello and welcome back to planDisney, Derek!

    Like you, I, too, am ecstatic about the return of the Pixar Fest to the Disneyland Resort! This celebration of friendship and beyond is a dream come true for fans of Disney-Pixar films. If you only have one day to spend at the Theme Parks, I recommend visiting Disney California Adventure Park. This incredible park has entire lands and attractions themed to Disney-Pixar films. My favorites are Cars Land and Monsters, Inc. Mike & Sulley to the Rescue!

    As part of Pixar Fest, you can enjoy the NEW “Better Together: A Pixar Pals Celebration!” Parade at Disney California Adventure Park. You can see more than two dozen Pixar characters in this parade, which is set to be performed twice a day. Check the Disneyland App for showtimes. Also during the day, head to the Hollywood Backlot for special photo opportunities, Pixar character encounters, and games. Don't forget to return at night for Club Pixar, a nighttime party with live performances, themed foods, and so much more.

    If you are on the hunt for Pixar-themed food and drinks, look no further than Paradise Garden Grill. Here you will find seasonal menus and a fun ambiance to enjoy your meal. Keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for the upcoming Disney Eats: Pixar Fest Foodie Guide.

    Lastly, no trip is complete without an encounter with a Disney character! You can meet Pixar characters throughout the park, the newest being Ember and Wade from Elemental. Head to Pixar Pier to meet pals from Toy Story and Inside Out. Did you know that you get unlimited digital downloads of your Disney PhotoPass photos with the purchase of the Disney Genie+ service?

    I hope this answers your question, Derek. There are so many Pixar experiences to enjoy on your next visit to the resort. Adventure is out there!

    Your Pal,
