The day before Pixar Pier officially opens to the public, Disney finally announced the final piece of the newly re-themed land.
Inside Out Emotional Whirlwind will open in the "Inside Out" neighborhood on the far western end of Pixar Pier next year. Standing on the site of the long-removed Maliboomer, the Emotional Whirlwind ride will be the first new attraction added to the land that used to be known as Paradise Pier since Toy Story Midway Mania opened in 2008.
If the ride looks somewhat familiar, it's just Flik's Flyers from It's a Bugs Land, reskinned to make the leaf "balloons" look like Core Memory balls from the 2015 Disney/Pixar film. Also next year, Disney California Adventure will reopen the former King Triton's Carousel as the Toy Story-themed Jessie's Critter Carousel, with new ride animals based on the virtual critter prizes in the neighboring Midway Mania ride and the "Woody's Round-up" TV show in Toy Story 2.
We previewed Pixar Pier yesterday, taking a ride on the Incredicoaster and trying all the new food. Take a look at our Pixar Pier Instagram story from the day for ever more detail about DCA's "new" land.Tweet
