Disney has revealed that a lot of new changes will be happening at its resorts and parks in 2018 and the upcoming years. Their hotels will no longer have "Do Not Disturb" signs and a Japanese-themed park is in the works, for example. And it's okay, change is good!
But when they mess with getting rid of beloved attractions and/or closing them for a period of time, that's when we cry a river.
According to The Mercury News, Disney will be eliminating its Paradise Pier district that's part of Disney California Adventure and giving it a total makeover throughout the year. The new district will be called Pixar Pier and it's inspired by some of the best Pixar cartoons.
The pier, which was designed to look like a classic amusement park of the 1920's with roller coasters and fair food, has been all the rage ever since the park opened to the public in February 2001.
Sadly, most of the attractions, including rides, restaurant, and shops, will either be closed or revamped in the next months, these include the following:
- The Bakery Tour (dining)
- California Screamin' (ride)
- Games of the Boardwalk (arcade)
- Grizzly River Run (ride)
- It's Tough to be a Bug! (attraction)
- Mickey's Fun Wheel (ride)
- Redwood Creek Challenge Trail (attraction)
- Sideshow Shirts (gift shop)
- Ariel’s Grotto (dining)
- Cove Bar (dining)
- Treasures in Paradise (gift shop)
- Paradise Pier Ice Cream Co. (dining)
The Disney blog elaborates on all of the new changes: "As part of our continuing efforts to create magical experiences for our Guests, Games of the Boardwalk will be closed during Pixar Pier enhancements starting January 8, 2018. Please stay tuned for further updates!"
It's truly bittersweet, just imagine all of the memories that were made on that pier! 😢
