    Exclamation First Look & Transformation Dates for Pixar Pier at Disney California Adventure

    Disney Parks & Resorts have revealed a first look at Pixar Pier and shared more details on the transformation to be complete in Summer 2018:

    Quote Originally Posted by Disney Parks & Resorts

    ...Pixar Pier opens along the southern shore of Paradise Bay, with newly themed attractions, foods and merchandise throughout. This new, permanent land in the area that is now Paradise Pier will introduce four new neighborhoods representing beloved Disney·Pixar stories.

    The first of the four themed neighborhoods guests will find is inspired by “The Incredibles.” Here, the new Incredicoaster, permanently transformed from the attraction that is now California Screamin’, will open with Pixar Pier in summer 2018. This new experience will feature a mid-century-modern-style loading area, new character moments and a new look for the ride vehicles. To prepare for this transformation, California Screamin’ will close Jan. 8.

    The popular Toy Story Mania! will anchor the “Toy Story”-inspired neighborhood. A neighborhood inspired by “Inside Out” will be found on the western side of the boardwalk and will welcome a new family-friendly attraction, scheduled to open at a later date.

    The fourth neighborhood will be a celebration of many of your favorite Pixar stories. In this neighborhood, Mickey’s Fun Wheel will have a new look, with each of the 24 gondolas featuring different Pixar characters and the iconic face of Mickey Mouse remaining on the Paradise Bay side of the wheel. At the Games of the Boardwalk, which already includes the Bullseye Stallion Stampede game, all of the midway games will be inspired by Pixar characters. Mickey’s Fun Wheel, Games of the Boardwalk and Sideshow Shirts will close Jan. 8 to begin this transformation.

    Ariel’s Grotto restaurant and the Cove Bar will be transformed into a new lounge and grill offering sparkling views of Paradise Bay and the new Pixar Pier. Both locations will close Jan. 8, with Cove Bar reopening briefly in April before closing again for its permanent transformation. Guests wishing to reserve “World of Color” dining packages after Jan. 7 may consider Carthay Circle Restaurant or Wine Country Trattoria.

    The remaining areas of the land that is now Paradise Pier, including Paradise Gardens, Silly Symphony Swings, Jumpin’ Jellyfish, Goofy’s Sky School, Golden Zephyr and The Little Mermaid ~ Ariel’s Undersea Adventure, will become a new land called Paradise Park.

    I don't know how I feel about this yet. I don't dislike the idea, just feel as if the Paradise Pier area is changing rather soon after fairly recent changes. I might have liked to hear that the Hollywood Land area was getting a makeover instead.

    And as a P.S. . . . has Blue Sky Cellar ever reopened? There are certainly enough reported "improvements" coming up that it would seem a good time to get this up and running if it isn't already. I always thought this was one of the best spaces in DCA, building up enthusiasm for new projects rather than disappointment and revealing plans rather than allowing people to dwell on misinformation.

    I'm pretty sure it has not reopened. I would also like to see it open and showing all the new changes coming to the parks.
