10 Ways to Have Fun with a Friend During Pixar Fest at Disneyland Resort

February 27, 2018

The first-ever Pixar Fest will take place April 13 through September 3 at the Disneyland Resort, and there’s no better time to connect with a friend than during this ultimate celebration of friendship and beyond! Here are 10 ways to have fun together during Pixar Fest.

 

1. Watch the new “Together Forever – A Pixar Nighttime Spectacular” from all four iconic locations. The timeless stories of your favorite Pixar friends will come to life through dazzling pyrotechnics and immersive projections at four Disneyland park locations: Sleeping Beauty Castle, the Rivers of America, “it’s a small world” and Main Street, U.S.A. See it together at all four locations for a different experience each time!

 

2. Share a tasty snack. One of the best parts of a Disney Parks celebration is the limited-time food and beverage – and you can be sure that Pixar Fest will be no exception. Share a treat with a buddy, or better yet, grab a selection of treats and sample them with a group of friends or family!

Frightfully Fun Parade to Debut During Mickey’s Halloween Party at Disneyland

August 29, 2016

Beginning this year, you are invited to gather for chills and thrills when the all-new Frightfully Fun Parade takes to the streets at Disneyland® Park, featuring a spectacle of spooky spirits from the deepest bayous of New Orleans to Halloweentown and beyond.

 

DL Frightfully Fun Parade

 

The Headless Horseman of Sleepy Hollow sets the mood as he arrives on his ghostly black steed just ahead of the parade itself, carrying a flickering jack-o-lantern as a warning to everyone along the parade route.

From “Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas,” Jack Skellington the Pumpkin King brings greetings from Halloweentown, as residents arrive to celebrate their favorite time of year. Grim, grinning ghosts come out to socialize when Disney’s iconic Haunted Mansion attraction comes to “afterlife,” with swirling ballroom dancers, ominous gravediggers and a trio of hitchhiking ghosts. Inspired by Disney’s “The Princess and the Frog,” Dr. Facilier calls on mystical powers, summoning his Shadow Men from the bayou to loom large over his strange and twisted Voodoo parlor, and the mischievous Disney Villains appear out of the darkness, ready to stir up some trouble. A dark and dungeon-like lair takes over the parade route, bringing with it a wicked gathering of villainy from Hades and the Evil Queen to Jafar, Cruella and more!

The “Frightfully Fun Parade” will be presented exclusively during Mickey’s Halloween Party, a separately ticketed event at Disneyland Park hosted over 17 nights from Sept. 23-Oct. 31, 2016. Reserve tickets for your today!
