Description And Comments

The Pixar Play Parade features characters from a bug's life, Cars, Finding Nemo, Monsters, Inc., The Incredibles, and Toy Story. Lively, very funny, and as varied as the Pixar characters, Pixar Play Parade should be on your must-see list.

The parade route runs from a gate to the left of The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, through Hollywood Land toward the fountain in Carthay Circle, around Grizzly Peak past A Bug’s Land and Cars Land, and through Pacific Wharf toward Paradise Pier, where it disappears backstage through a gate to the left of Boardwalk Pizza & Pasta. Note that for the second parade or on other occasions, the direction may be reversed. On days when the crowds are light, any place along the parade route will suffice. On days of heavy attendance, try to score a viewing spot on the elevated courtyard or steps of the Golden Vine Winery. The upstairs Alfresco Tasting Terrace offers an excellent bird’s-eye perspective. Parades may be suspended during special events like the springtime Food & Wine Festival. In their stead, Mr. Incredible, Elastigirl, and Frozone may do a mini-parade along the performance corridor as The Incredibles H.I.T. Squad.
