Now that Pixar Fest is well underway at Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California, regulars have been anticipating another two-month wait until the next big update launches at Disney California Adventure theme park: Pixar Pier, scheduled to begin welcoming guests in late June.
But the powers that be had a trick up their sleeves with the exhaustive overhaul of the former Paradise Pier area– the Abominable / Adorable Snowman Frosted Treats stand (replacing the now-departed Paradise Pier Ice Cream Company) has opened a good seven weeks early along Pixar Pier!
Adorable Snowman Frosted Treats– inspired by the Yeti voiced by actor John Ratzenberger in Disney/Pixar’s 2001 animated hit “Monsters, Inc.” and its 2013 prequel “Monsters University”– serves up frozen desserts including “cones and cups with tasty towering soft serve, available in chocolate, vanilla, and non-dairy lemon.”
Also available are a couple specialty items exclusive to Pixar Pier:
The Adorable Snowman Frosted Treats will also be scooping up a few specialty treats like the Pixar Pier Parfait, a non-dairy lemon soft serve and blue raspberry frozen beverage and the It’s Snow-Capped Lemon, also a non-dairy lemon soft serve with a “snow-cap” of white chocolate – YUM!
According to Disney’s announcement, fountain sodas are also on tap, and guests have the option of turning any of them into a float with soft-serve ice cream.
While Adorable Snowman Frosted Treats and its neighboring shop Knick’s Knacks are now open at Disney California Adventure, Pixar Pier itself is not scheduled to launch until Saturday, June 23rd at Disneyland Resort.
