Details were scarce, but Disney mentioned that Toy Story Mania! will be part of a “Toy Story”-inspired neighborhood. “Inside Out” will also be featured in this new area with a new attraction based on the film which will be located on the west side of Pixar Pier.
Mickey’s Fun Wheel will receive a new paint job and will now feature different Pixar characters on each of the gondolas to fit in with the new Pixar Pier area. The ride will still retain the giant Mickey Mouse head on the side of the attraction.
All of the midway games along Games of the Boardwalk will be rethemed to Pixar films. This area will close on Jan. 8. Also closing on Jan. 8 will be Ariel’s Grotto restaurant and the Cove Bar, which will be transformed into a new lounge.
Paradise Gardens, Silly Symphony Swings, Jumpin’ Jellyfish, Goofy’s Sky School, Golden Zephyr and The Little Mermaid ~ Ariel’s Undersea Adventure will be transformed into a new area called Paradise Park.
