Pixar’s stories center around beloved characters who support and uplift each other through all of life’s challenges to be better together. In this parade, eight floats will dazzle and delight to showcase Pixar characters and their heartwarming stories from classic Pixar films to new
favorites—with many characters from “Turning Red” and “Luca” making their first appearance ever in a Disney Park.
