Pixar Playtime Comes to Tokyo DisneySea

Tokyo Disney Resort has announced details of its new Pixar Playtime event. Running January 11 – March 19, 2018, at DisneySea, the event includes Pixar-themed games, character greetings, and new food and merchandise.

Fun and Games

This winter, Tokyo DisneySea will host Pixar Playtime, a celebration of Pixar Studios with a competitive twist. New gaming booths themed to different Pixar movies will host fun challenges for guests of all ages. Booths will include a miniature version of the house from Up, a Cars pitstop, and the kitchen from Ratatouille. There is no word on any prizes yet, but during the summer’s Natsu Matsuri event gaming booths offered summer-themed prizes, so we’ll wait and see what Pixar Playtime has in store…

There will also be lots of opportunities to meet and play along with characters from across the Pixar films. Confirmed characters include Woody, Buzz Lightyear, Jessie and Bullseye from Toy Story, Mike and Sulley from Monster’s Inc, Remy from Ratatouille, as well as Carl, Russell, and Dug from Up.

A special Lightning McQueen greeting will also take place at the American Waterfront, while Remy will entertain guests with a culinary show outside the Zambini Brothers Ristorante. The event’s board game theme will also appear in decorations across the park.
