One of the most exciting parts of Pixar Fest is the Together Forever – A Pixar Nighttime Spectacular, which will return to Disneyland in 2024. This emotional show has been meticulously crafted by Walt Disney Imagineers to bring the most tender moments from Pixar movies to life.

This year, the spectacular will feature new scenes from Onward, Soul, Luca, Turning Red, and Elemental. Projections, lasers, and an iconic Disney soundtrack will captivate guests from multiple locations in Disneyland, including the Rivers of America, It’s a Small World facade, and Main Street, U.S.A.

Psst… Keep an eye on your MagicBand+ during the show as it will come to life with lights and vibrations synchronised to the music.
