Kicking off on the 26th of April and running through until the 4th of August, the festivities are perfect for an exuberant summer escapade.

Hours for the park during the fest are generally from 8:00 AM to 11:00 PM. On certain peak days, the park will open as early as 7:00 AM and close as late as midnight. It’s recommended to keep an eye on the official Disneyland calendar for official dates and times to make sure you get the maximum enjoyment out of your Pixar Fest experience.

Pixar Fest Disneyland Tickets

As you make plans for your Disneyland Pixar Fest 2024 experience, one crucial detail you’ll need to square away is securing your tickets. Disneyland makes it straightforward with options for every kind of Pixar Fest visitor, whether you’re attending a single day or opting for the multi-day magic of the fest.

Tickets to Disneyland during the Pixar Fest are expected to sell out fast, just like in previous years, so ensure to book as early as possible. They usually offer a range of ticketing options, including single-day and multi-day passes. Multi-day passes are particularly recommended for those intending to enjoy every aspect of the Pixar Fest since it’s nearly impossible to experience it all in a single day.

When making your purchase, remember to look out for additional perks like Magic Morning, where ticket holders can gain early admission to certain areas of Disneyland Park an hour before standard opening times. This is a fantastic way not to rush your experience amidst the daytime parade and other world-class attractions the event promises.

Also, consider purchasing a Park Hopper ticket if you plan on exploring the two parks, Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park. This ticket allows you the flexibility to wade from Elemental’s Disneyland Resort to Pixar Pier at Disney California Adventure.

In case you’re bringing the kiddos along, remember to check the rules and regulations regarding children’s tickets. Those aged under 3 usually enjoy free admission, while kids 3-10 enjoy discounted rates. Always keep an eye on the official website for the latest details and Pixar Fest 2024 ticket prices.

However, note that admission to themed hotels such as the Pixar Place Hotel is not included with standard park tickets and may require an additional purchase. So if you’re planning to add that extra touch of Pixar magic to your stay, make sure to account for this in your budget.

Once you’ve scored your tickets, you’re all set to immerse yourself in the world of Pixar! Now all that’s left is to plan your Pixar Fest itinerary and gear up for an unforgettable adventure in the heart of Disneyland.
