California Screamin' to close, become new 'The Incredibles' ride

The action packed, superhero-family film "The Incredibles" area of the pier - or "neighborhood" - will serve as the inspiration for the "Incredicoaster" ride, replacing the current California Screamin' attraction. Well, Mickey's staying right where he is, but all the gondolas on Mickey's Fun Wheel will have Pixar characters splayed all over them. One of the four new "neighborhoods" at the park will be "Toy Story Mania!" And those old midway games will be getting a Pixar overhaul, so expect something like a WALL-E ring toss, or something.

The news of the roller coaster change, announced on the Disneyland Resort blog, is among the first few details offered on plans to redo Paradise Pier, a boardwalk-inspired area of California Adventure Park.

And you know that giant Ferris wheel with Mickey Mouse's face in the middle? Among other construction projects that will begin January 8, the midway games on the boardwalk will also be overhauled, each with a new Pixar flavor.

Finally, Ariel's Grotto, a restaurant based in Paradise Pier, and the Cove Bar will both undergo as-yet-unannounced transformations into something presumably more Pixar-centric.

An illustrated bird's eye view of the planned Pixar Pier. Pixar Pier, along with the Cove Bar, will open for a limited time during Pixar Fest which starts on April 13. Guests wishing to reserve "World of Color" dining packages after January 7 may consider Carthay Circle Restaurant or Wine Country Trattoria.

Merino could also miss the Premier League fixtures against Watford and West Bromwich Albion later this month. His manager said: "Merino is at least a couple of weeks".

The remaining attractions of Paradise Pier, including Silly Symphony Swings, Jumping Jellyfish, Paradise Gardens, Goofy's Sky School, The Little Mermaid - Ariel's Undersea Adventure and Golden Zephyr, will become a new land in the area called Paradise Park. In addition, guests will find friends from Disney•Pixar films, creatively themed food and beverage items and merchandise that's exclusive to Pixar Fest.

California Adventure is already home to two areas dedicated to specific Pixar movies.

Cars Land: Guests step into the world of Radiator Springs with three attractions plus themed shopping and dining locations across 12 acres.
