Hold on to Your Super Suits! Disneyland Resort Debuts the Thrilling Incredicoaster as Pixar Pier Opens June 23 at Disney California Adventure Park

disneylandnews.com/ - Tue, 2018-06-19 17:16

ANAHEIM, Calif. (June 19, 2018) – The thrilling Incredicoaster opens June 23, 2018, at Disney California Adventure Park, bringing guests the first ride-through attraction in the world to feature characters from Disney•Pixar’s “The Incredibles.” Anchoring the newly reimagined land of Pixar Pier, the Incredicoaster takes guests on a super adventure with the Parr family to chase after the elusive baby Jack-Jack. Exciting character figures, special effects, lighting, new music and distinctively colored vehicles make the thrills on this coaster even more incredible.

Guests will step right into the world of “The Incredibles” as they discover they’ve been invited to the inaugural launch of the new Incredicoaster. In gratitude for their heroic efforts and incredible deeds, the citizens of Municiberg are dedicating their beloved roller coaster to the Incredibles. Of course the family of supers are attending – Mr. and Mrs. Incredible, Violet, Dash and Jack- Jack – along with Edna Mode (exclusive super suit designer to the Incredibles).

With Edna and Jack-Jack being too short to ride the Incredicoaster, they have to wait for the rest of the Incredibles inside the VIP inauguration lounge. Things go awry, however, when the unpredictable Jack-Jack vanishes from Edna’s not-so-watchful eye. As a polymorph with a wild variety of powers, Jack-Jack creates chaos along the track while his Incredible family sprints into action to save the day.

Incredicoaster Scenes

Straight away, Dash sprints into action in an attempt to catch Jack-Jack, launching guests on the adventure with him. As the coaster zooms through the first tunnel, Jack-Jack shoots blue laser beams from his eyes and Dash uses his super speed to avoid being hit.

During the climb into the second tunnel, guests find that Elastigirl has jumped in to assist. Stretching herself flat against the tunnel walls, she reaches out with both arms in an attempt to grab her baby boy. Then the aroma of chocolate chip cookies wafts through the tunnel and, as the coaster plunges downward, guests see that Mr. Incredible has punched through the side of the tube holding a cookie to lure Jack-Jack out of another dimension.

In the third tunnel, guests find Jack-Jack joyfully aflame. Violet jumps in to save the Incredicoaster riders by shooting her purple force field up the tunnel, shielding guests from the raging fire. As the coaster zooms safely out of the tunnel, it sprints over a series of humps, and guests see a cluster of Jack-Jacks in mid-air, giggling and multiplying.

As riders circle through the final helix, they hear the voice of Edna Mode telling the family that Jack-Jack has returned to her, safe and sound. As the track straightens out, riders return to a chaotic and messy VIP lounge with one last surprise that guests are sure to enjoy.

Incredicoaster Fun Facts
  • The Incredicoaster is super-fast – the fastest attraction at the Disneyland Resort.
  • The Incredicoaster zooms across more than 6,000 feet of track – almost 1 1/8 miles – making it the longest coaster at the Disneyland Resort.
  • As their vehicles prepare to launch, guests on the Incredicoaster experience a water effect. It’s the speedy Dash running across the water, setting up the storyline of the race to catch his little brother, Jack-Jack.
  • Mrs. Incredible, a.k.a. Elastigirl, appears in the second tube of the Incredicoaster, stretching herself 53 feet from head to toe as she tries to grab baby Jack-Jack.
  • It took eight people to haul the Mr. Incredible figure up the coaster track to his final position on the Incredicoaster, in the second tube.
  • The super elusive baby Jack-Jack appears 19 times throughout the attraction.
  • Music for the Incredicoaster was created by Academy Award®-winning composer Michael Giacchino, who also scored the music for “The Incredibles” and “Incredibles 2” films. He also wrote original music, inspired by “The Incredibles,” for the queue area of the Incredicoaster.
  • The largest show figure on the Incredicoaster is tough to miss; it’s 1,800 pounds! To fit in its spot, this figure had to be lowered in with a crane before the building was enclosed.
  • The triangular roof line at the load area was drawn on a napkin during lunch at Pixar Animation Studios – and that’s what was built. All of Incredibles Park is a play on triangles and circles, with a mid-century modern style.
  • Artist Teddy Newton worked with Walt Disney Imagineers to create a mural for the Incredicoaster load area, the artwork on a wall of Jack-Jack Cookie Num Nums kiosk, and the arch at the entry of Incredibles Park, one of four neighborhoods in Pixar Pier. These designs feature a bold, abstract, hyper-colored style to contrast with the monotones of the mid-century modern architecture in the rest of the neighborhood. Newton was a character designer on “The Incredibles” and a writer on the Pixar short “Jack-Jack Attack,” an inspiration for the Incredicoaster.
  • Fifty pounds of glitter were needed to create the Incredicoaster’s fire and force-field effects.
  • The new red paint on the coaster tubes is self-cleaning.
  • All of the Incredicoaster murals were hand-painted.
  • More than 50 tons of steel – 100,000 pounds – were used to enclose the tubes on the Incredicoaster.
  • Guests will enjoy discovering hidden Mickeys in artwork throughout the Incredicoaster.

ANAHEIM, Calif. (June 18, 2018) – The fan-favorite “Paint the Night” parade at Disney California Adventure Park gets even more super this June with the addition of a new float inspired by Disney•Pixar’s “The Incredibles” and “Incredibles 2.” The epic Parr family and their pal Frozone make their first appearance in this electrifying parade, bringing all of the fun and excitement of “The Incredibles” to life with high-tech, pop-art effects inspired by the mid-century modern style of the films.

Mr. Incredible, Mrs. Incredible and Frozone showcase their super skills as they take on their latest threat, The Underminer. Mr. and Mrs. Incredibles’ teen daughter Violet, along with their sons Dash and Jack-Jack, also showcase their unique powers in surprising new ways, as shown through dynamic and innovative visual technology. Like other elements in this spectacular parade, the new float comes to life through a series of dazzling LED lights, new music elements and more.

The Incredibles float joins “Paint the Night” on June 23, just in time to celebrate the opening of the new film, “Incredibles 2,” in theaters June 15, and the opening of the newly reimagined land of Pixar Pier at Disney California Adventure on June 23.

“Paint the Night” recently returned to the Disneyland Resort for Pixar Fest, the limited-time celebration of friendship and beyond, running now through Sept. 3, 2018. “Paint the Night” parade is currently making its way through Disney California Adventure Park with more than 1 million brilliant lights, high-energy music and cutting edge special effects featuring many beloved Disney and Pixar pals.

Fun Facts

  • The dynamic and colorful new float connects both “The Incredibles” and “Incredibles 2,” picking up where the first film left off and portraying the scene that shows the Parr family banding together against the supervillain known as “The Underminer.”
  • Violet Parr uses her super powers to surround herself with a “force field.” It comes to life through a custom-built persistence-of-vision (POV) globe – the first and largest ever to be installed on a Disney parade float.
  • Incredible and Mrs. Incredible, along with their pal Frozone, light up the night in new super suits. The suits were installed and wired by hand and are fully programmable to be in sync with the music and the float lighting.
  • The super suits, designed by eccentric fashion designer Edna Mode, are illuminated with nearly 100 sheets of flexible, miniature LEDs. This is the first time these light-up suits are being worn by any Disney or Pixar character.
  • The chest logos on the Incredibles’ glowing super suits are made up of 60 individually programmable LEDs.

By the Numbers

  • The Incredibles float is 11 feet wide, 18 feet tall, and 30 feet long.
  • The 13 buildings on the float are created with 123 individual LED panels – only two of which are exactly the same size and shape.
  • Frozone stands nearly 12 feet off the ground on his very own ice trail.
  • Dash’s super-human speed is captured through an innovative system of 64 individually lit frames, flashing as he races in circles around the float.
  • Guests need to keep an eye out for Jack-Jack, as he uses several of his super powers to pop in and out of four different places on the float.
  • The “art wall” around the rear of the float uses 150 fixtures, all exactly nine inches apart, to create the “sine wave” curve effect.
  • The penthouse floor of one of the buildings has 112 individual windows, each with its own miniature LED light source.
  • Nearly 200 individually programmable lights are embedded in the buildings, The Underminer’s drill and Frozone’s ice trail. Custom red lights act as miniature aircraft warning lights on several of the rooftops.

Disneyland Resort Serves Food and Beverage with a Pixar Twist and a Dash of Character at Newly Reimagined Pixar Pier

disneylandnews.com/ - Tue, 2018-06-19 17:13
New Lamplight Lounge Offers Gastro-Pub Cuisine Overlooking the Bay; Pixar Stories Inspire Creative Snacks and Treats

ANAHEIM, Calif. (June 19, 2018) – New culinary experiences, a bayside lounge and Pixar- themed treats are part of the storytelling at Pixar Pier, opening June 23, 2018, at Disney California Adventure Park. The newly reimagined land of Pixar Pier invites guests to step into the worlds of Pixar through exciting attractions, entertainment, creative merchandise and food and beverage offerings.

Pixar Pier features imaginative new neighborhoods and the thrilling Incredicoaster, inspired by the newest Disney•Pixar film, “Incredibles 2.” Guests will discover new culinary experiences throughout Pixar Pier, beginning with the beautiful new Lamplight Lounge and at kiosks all along Paradise Bay.

Lamplight Lounge is a stylish and fun gathering place that welcomes the entire family, with picturesque waterfront views of Paradise Bay both upstairs and downstairs. The California casual gastro-pub cuisine is playfully presented, complemented by unique signature cocktails and exciting new menu items. The Disneyland Resort culinary team has developed dishes such as the carne asada roll with roasted Fresno chili salsa; potato skins with brown butter-caper yogurt, smoked paprika aïoli and Manchego cheese; spinach salad with warm wild mushrooms, soft poached egg, charred onion vinaigrette and shiitake “bacon” served with blue cheese toast; chicken sandwich with spicy chili glaze, vinegar slaw and pineapple butter on a toasted Amish bun; and creamy PB&J roll served with a flower pot of veggies with hummus and fresh fruit.

The Lamplight Lounge décor celebrates the creativity, inspirations and personalities of the artists and storytellers who have brought Pixar films to life. Guests will discover the artistic details that Pixar “regulars” have left throughout the lounge: concept art, a quick sketch on a coaster, memorabilia and collectible toys of beloved Pixar characters.

Also near the entrance of Pixar Pier, is Adorable Snowman Frosted Treats with classic boardwalk soft-serve designed to recall the grand beachfront pavilions of yesteryear. Featuring the adorable Abominable Snowman from Disney•Pixar’s “Monsters, Inc.,” the location serves cones and cups with tasty towering soft serve, available in chocolate, vanilla, and non-dairy lemon.

The Adorable Snowman Frosted Treats also serves up a few specialty treats, such as the Pixar Pier Frozen Parfait, a non-dairy lemon soft serve and blue raspberry frozen beverage, and the It’s Snow-Capped Lemon, a non-dairy lemon soft serve with a “snow-cap” of white chocolate. Guests may also choose from a selection of fountain sodas, with the option to turn any soda into a float with any flavor of soft serve.

The first neighborhood at Pixar Pier is inspired by Disney•Pixar’s “The Incredibles” and is anchored by the thrilling Incredicoaster. Jack-Jack Cookie Num Nums awaits at the exit of the new attraction, enticing guests with the smell of freshly baked cookies and inviting them into a plaza infused with fun and funky mid-century modern aesthetics. This new food location serves Jack-Jack Cookie Num Nums, a.k.a. warm chocolate chip cookies featured in the recently released “Incredibles 2,” The IncrediCookie (gluten-friendly), a Jack-Jack Shortbread Cookie and flavored milks.

Proceeding to the next neighborhood, guests will discover larger than life flavors themed to Disney•Pixar’s animated “Toy Story” films. At Poultry Palace, inspired by the Pixar short ““Toy Story Toon: Small Fry,” guests will enjoy delicious chicken drumsticks and coleslaw, jumbo smoked turkey legs and corn on the cob. Guests may also snap a photo with a fun-sized Emperor Zurg. At Señor Buzz Churros, the popular Disneyland Resort treat is presented with a sweet & crispy Spanish flair.

At Pixar Promenade, Angry Dogs offers hot dogs, chips and beverages in an open-air walk-up location on the waterfront. Anger, the outrageously fun character from Disney•Pixar’s “Inside Out,” stands 35 inches high on a light stand and true to his nature, he is angry. The raging orange-red flames from his forehead appear to roast spicy and not-so-spicy hot dogs for guests.

Opening later this simmer, Bing Bong’s Sweet Stuff features Bing Bong, Riley’s imaginary childhood friend from “Inside Out.” Stepping inside, guests will find a fully sculpted Bing Bong sitting in his makeshift rocket wagon crying tears of candy. To his right is Jangles the Clown, offering guests a cooling frozen beverage; and across the shop, Rainbow Unicorn runs the most colorful and cheerful candy corner.

Pixar Pier opens during Pixar Fest, a limited-time celebration that offers creatively themed food and beverage throughout the Disneyland Resort, only through Sept. 3. Inspired by the Pixar stories and characters that guests have come to know and love, Pixar Fest celebrates the theme of friendship and beyond, an ever-present theme in Pixar films.

NYC help!

intercot.com - Tue, 2018-06-19 15:45
I am trying to book a 3 night stay in NYC for the second week in Dec. I am completely and totally out of my element! I am not very familiar with NYC, having only had one day trip there about 5 years ago. There are so many hotels to choose from and I don't even know where to start!

Looking for something clean and safe, not too expensive (would love to stay at $300 a night if possible), close to subway for easy transportation. Any advice on where I should focus my search? Any hotels that are recommended?

Here are some things we would like to do: 9/11 memorial site, Times Square, possibly a broadway show, the Christmas window displays, radio city music hall Christmas show, central park, the big Christmas tree. Typical holiday tourist things!

...

If you’ve seen the adorable Nemo and Baby Dory Cake Pops available for Pixar Fest, you’ll be excited to learn that they will be part of a series of seasonal “Buddy” Cake Pops offered at Bing Bong’s Sweet Stuff! Every so often, these pops will change out to feature new characters, such as Wall•E and Eve, or Buzz and Woody. In addition, you’ll find cake pops inspired by “Inside Out,” featuring some of your favorite emotions.


Next up are the awesome apples, like the Rainbow Unicorn Apple or the Bing Bong Apple. These Granny Smith apples are dipped in caramel and chocolate and decorated with colored sugar, fondant and marshmallows, and are definitely treats to satisfy your sweet tooth!


Also available at Bing Bong’s Sweet Stuff will be an array of Pixar-themed popcorn, lollipops and candies, including Lemon Drops, Red Licorice and Sour Apple Balls. Saltwater taffy lovers can enjoy an assortment of flavors like Strawberry Banana and Peaches and Cream. Rainbow cotton candy will also be available in flavors like Blue Raspberry and Orange.


Lastly, the shop will serve Memory Refreshers – frozen drinks that will come in all colors and flavors! One of the drinks is the Rainbow Unicorn, with grape soda, blue raspberry soda, lime, cherry, lemon-lime and rainbow candies. Another one is inspired by Bing Bong himself, Imaginary Pal, which will be made with pink lemonade and grape soda with rainbow cotton candy, topped with a marshmallow flower.
