Reach for the skies with Woody, Buzz, Jessie, and friends. The Toy Story gang has taken flight in a brand new special-edition airplane. Alaska Airlines has revealed their brand new plane named “Friendship and Beyond at Disneyland Resort,” which is a beautiful tribute to Pixar Pier at Disney California Adventure Park.
Alaska Airlines and the Disneyland Resort have been great friends for the past 20 years, and it shows in the new “Friendship and Beyond at Disneyland Resort” airplane.
This is the sixth painted airplane from Alaska Airlines which allows guests to celebrate the Disneyland Resort even before they arrive at the theme parks!
On October 7, the inaugural flight departed from Seattle, making a stop in San Francisco for a gate ceremony, and then flew off to their final destination, Orange County.
This unique airplane is a collaboration between Alaska Airlines, the Disneyland Resort, and Pixar Animation Studios.
In a recent Disney Parks Blog, Disney stated, “The Pixar Pier-themed 737-800, tail number N537AS, begins flying throughout Alaska’s route network today, welcoming guests with its artistic flair for many years to come. The exterior of the plane required more than 2,800 work hours and 24 days using 50 gallons of paint in 44 primary colors and custom shades.”
Guests can now fly alongside some of their favorite Toy Story characters, such as Woody, Buzz Lightyear, Jessie, Rex, and even the Green Aliens.
And while supplies last, the little travelers in your party can enjoy the Disneyland Resort Activity Fun Book and Kids’ Choice Picnic Pack.
