Located on the western end of the pier, the lush and colorful Inside Out Headquarters will be the future home of Inside Out Emotional Whirlwind! Making its Pixar Pier debut in 2019, this whimsical family-friendly attraction inspired by “Inside Out” will be—not surprisingly—full of emotions.
Like a lot of people expected, it looks like they’ve found out what to do with one of the Flik’s Flyers, now that A Bug’s Land is getting replaced by Marvel.
To be honest, I’m still surprised that Inside Out is the Pixar movie they went with. Don’t get me wrong, I think that movie is a masterpiece and should be included in screen writing curriculum. Anecdotally, I just don’t see many Inside Out toys or lunch boxes. It did bring in $356 million domestically, so that’s nothing to scoff at. Hopefully they give it some love and care, it could be a fun addition.
Also joining Pixar Pier in 2019 is Jessie’s Critter Carousel. Inspired by Jessie’s wilderness friends in the “Woody’s Roundup” television show from “Toy Story 2,” this reimagined attraction is a classic boardwalk carousel with a rootin’ tootin’ spin.
