Disney confirmed today several details for the upcoming PIXAR PIER including several changes and a delayed opening for the new Carousel.

Jessie’s Critter Carousel

Getting a delayed opening in 2019, King Triton’s Carousel will become Jessie’s Critter Carousel. Inspired by Jessie’s wilderness friends in the “Woody’s Roundup” television show from “Toy Story 2,” this newly reimagined attraction is a classic boardwalk carousel with a whimsical spin. Saddle up on one of 56 adorable friends, choosing from a turtle, snake, buzzard, armadillo, bunny, deer, raccoon, ram, skunk and two cozy logs inhabited by a family of owls.


Adorable Snowman Frosted Treats

Inspired by the lovable and not-at-all-abominable monster from “Monsters, Inc.,” this will be your go-to for frozen treats.


Poultry Palace

In the “Toy Story” neighborhood of Pixar Pier, big appetites and small fries alike will love the Poultry Palace. This giant fun meal inspired by Pixar’s short, “Toy Story Toon: Small Fry,” even comes with a Fun Meal Zurg!


Señor Buzz Churros

Buzz Lightyear has switched into Spanish mode to offer this quintessential Disneyland Resort treat.


Angry Dogs

Further down Pixar Pier, Angry Dogs will be serving up some hot items – which is the perfect place for Anger from “Inside Out.” The more he burns with rage, the hotter the dogs get!
