Grab your memory orbs and head on down to Disneyland Resort because the park is buzzing with excitement over Pixar Animation Studios’ latest release, “Inside Out 2.” Premiering in theaters today, this much-awaited sequel brings a whirlwind of new experiences to the resort, ensuring both fans of the original and new viewers have a ton of emotions to explore.

First up, visitors can channel their inner artist at the Animation Academy. Under the guidance of talented Disney artists, guests can learn to draw popular characters Joy, Sadness, Anxiety, and Anger. It’s an enriching, creative activity that’s bound to leave everyone smiling—or maybe a little teary-eyed, too!

For those with a sweet tooth and a penchant for collectibles, Bing Bong’s Sweet Stuff is offering a limited-time “Inside Out 2” collectible medallion from their Medallion Machine. The themed merchandise doesn’t stop there. Around the park, you’ll discover exclusive “Inside Out 2” inspired food and beverage offerings. Keep an eye out for unique novelties like the Anxiety Straw Clip, available while supplies last.

And that’s not all! If you’ve purchased the Disney Genie+ service, you’re in for a treat with a special limited-time lens from Disney PhotoPass featuring “Inside Out 2” characters. Over at the Pixar Place Hotel, guests can view a stunning display of three maquettes featuring new characters Anxiety, Ennui, and Embarrassment, along with panels showcasing beautiful artwork from the film.

As if the offerings couldn’t get cooler, every evening before the spectacular “World of Color – ONE” show at Disney California Adventure Park, a limited-time water short called “Emotional Rollercoaster” takes the stage. Imagine seeing mist screens depict Riley’s core memories mixed with new emotions like Envy and Ennui, with animated projections and majestic fountains creating a mesmerizing experience. This is a definite must-see!

Of course, we can’t forget the much-loved Anger, who will be making appearances at the Pixar Pier Band Shell. This addition adds an extra spark to the Pixar Fest, which runs until August 4, 2024. Don’t miss out on this fabulous celebration, along with other Disneyland summertime favorites like “Fantasmic!” and the start of fall festivities.
