Pixar fest 2018 ushers in a magical transformation. Redd Rocket’s Pizza Port will become Pizza Planet from Toy Story. Officially the eateries name will change to “Alien Pizza Planet-A Better Place,” according to the Disney Parks blog. So what can you get in this Toy Story-themed pizzeria? Well, the Alien’s specialty from their home planet Pepperonia is a pepperoni pizza topped with green peppers and mushrooms. But that’s not all. You can also dine on a cheeseburger pizza—with a sesame seed crust, ketchup and yellow mustard.

Neighborhood 1 includes The Incredibles’ Incredicoaster, Neighborhood 2 brings the Toy Story gang to life in Toy Story Midway Mania!, Neighborhood 3 is a classic-style boardwalk with gondolas and a Fun Wheel and Neighborhood 4 features an Inside Out themed playground.

Located on Pixar Pier, the Incredicoaster celebrates (of course) The Incredibles. This high-speed ride, which opens this June, pits the Parr family against the coaster as everyone races to catch baby Jack-Jack.
