D23 Expo - Disney Parks & Resorts Panel Breakdown: Ratatouille, Pixar Pier, Toy Story Land & More Coming to the Parks (Updated with Video)


During the D23 Expo 2017, Walt Disney Parks and Resorts chairman, Bob Chapek revealed some exciting news involving adding more Pixar stories, rides, shows and more into the Disney Parks. Read below for a complete list of the upcoming Pixar-themed attractions making their way into the Disney Parks.

RATATOUILLE


Two new attractions were announced for Disney World's Epcot, a new Guardians of the Galaxy themed attraction and the ever-popular Disneyland Paris "Ratatouille"-inspired ride. The Ratatouille attraction will be nestled in a new space set in the France Pavillion of the World Showcase behind the Eifel Tower - expanding the pavilion immensely. The technology will be similar to the Disneyland Paris attraction, using 4-D immersion to allow guests to shrink down to Remy's size and scurry about the bustling kitchen of Gusteau's.

According to Disney leaders, both of these attractions are set to open for the 50th anniversary of the Walt Disney Resort in 2021.

TOY STORY LAND


News of the upcoming Toy Story Land has kept fans "Buzz"-ing as to when we would finally be able to take a walk in Andy's backyard. Previously announced at the 2015 D23 Expo, the renderings of Toy Story Land have gone through quite a bit of edits (see below).

The renderings on the left were shared at the 2015 D23 Expo - showcasing a more open layout with a "Woody's Round-up" area. While some of those buildings have been scaled back and removed, the newer renderings (on the right) still feature an immersive experience into Andy's backyard.


Chairman, Bob Chapek shared with an excited audience that Toy Story Land will open in the summer of 2018. During the presentation, a short humorous video clip was shown highlighting the progress of the Slinky Dog Dash (a family coaster attraction), as well as updates on the spinning tables of the Alien Swirling Saucers, which is designed as a playset Andy got from Pizza Planet, with aliens flying around in saucers trying to avoid the "The Claw."

PIXAR PIER


One of the biggest announcements was reserved for John Lasseter. As Bob Chapek, announced Lasseter to the stage the D23 Expo room swelled with thunderous excitement as it was announced that Paradise Pier in Disney's California Adventure would be reimagined into Pixar Pier, opening 2018.

The new permanent Pixar Pier will feature your favorite Pixar characters from Inside Out, Incredibles, Toy Story and more, allowing guests to enjoy their favorite films in a brand new way. From the renderings shown above, we can't wait to see the Luxo Ball fountain and eat some treats from the Bing Bong Confectionary - I hope they have cotton candy!


'HAUL'-OWEEN CELEBRATION AT CARSLAND


While John Lasseter was on-stage with Bob Chapek, the duo announced that a new holiday celebration would be hitting Radiator Springs, Cars Land in Disney California Adventure. This Fall, Halloween-theming will be included up and down the streets of Route 66 - in fact, Lasseter even mentioned that a few of the Cars characters may dress up for this special occasion.


PIXAR FEST


Arriving at Disneyland in 2018 will be the limited-time celebration, Pixar Fest. This nighttime fireworks spectacular will illuminate the sky, along with Pixar-themed projections along Main Street, USA. In addition, the guest favorite Pixar Play Parade (from Disney's California Adventure) will move to Disneyland - allowing the popular "Paint the Night" parade to return, this time to Disney's California Adventure, and rumor has it there may even be a new float joining the nighttime parade.


UPDATE July 16, 2017: The official D23 YouTube channel released a short 2-minute video compilation of some of the Disney Parks and Resorts panel announcements.
