As the new Pixar Pier area continues to take shape in the location of the former Paradise Pier at Disneyland Resort‘s Disney California Adventure theme park, new details about some of the smaller rides and attractions are finally being officially released.
During the Pixar in the Parks media preview over the weekend at Walt Disney Imagineering in Glendale, Imagineer Jeffrey Shaver-Moskowitz announced the rebranded name and theme of the newly-overhauled King Triton’s Carousel of the Sea: Jessie’s Critter Carousel, inspired by Jessie’s wilderness friends featured in the “Woody’s Roundup” television show from “Toy Story 2.”
