    A slew of Pixar-related offerings will be coming to DLR in early 2018. You might remember a survey that went out some time ago detailing some proposals for this stillborn idea that will provoke gales of indifference. TDA thinks it's all a great idea, so get ready for an all-Pixar fireworks show among other things. I haven't been able to get an answer on whether the ride overlay(s) made the cut.

    I for one can't wait to groove to the two or three hit songs that have come out of Pixar's long list of films while fireworks burst in the sky!

    Ironically, this year of Pixar crap comes right as they're trying to figure out a way to retire Pixar Play Parade and replace it. Irony is alive and well.

    edited to remove anniversary reference because apparently I didn't check the math

    And to kick off the Year of Pixar, they will start by closing A Bug's Land!

    TDA is brilliant! Brilliant!

    Twenty-five years, eh? I could've sworn Pixar was founded in 1986.

    They are absolutely brilliant. You know why? Because I guarantee no one here will care a lick about the end of Pixar Play Parade or the closure of A Bug's Land once the this rumored Pixar celebration commences next year. It's like dangling a shiny new toy in front of a toddler.

    1979 if you date to the Lucasfilm Graphics Group. Was 1993 when the deal with Disney was made?

    I edited the post, as I didn't check my own math!

    To be honest, I took it as Disney was fabricating some kind of Pixar anniversary. After all, we know how Disney loves anniversary celebrations, so much that they often stretch well beyond the celebrated year!

    In 2010, I'd have been all for it. Now I'd rather them stay in their lane

    Not to poo-poo the discussion, but BugsLand kinda (really does) suck. Sure, the water station and chew chew kiddie coaster served their purpose for my 2 year old, but I doubt anyone will be really that sad to see it go.

    Overlays meaning adding pixar characters to existing attraction? Also can anyone give a summary of what was in the survey? I haven't heard of it until now

    I found the original survey, from March:

    It is the dumbest thing I have heard in a long, long time.

    Doesn't sound very exciting to be honest.

    Will the characters be available to carry my stuff around for me, or keep track of my budget and let me know if I'm running low on money?
