  • Pixar Place at Disney’s Hollywood Studios opened on May 31st 2008.

  • It was the home of Toy Story Mania, a meet and greet and some retail and food stands,

  • but in early July of 2018 Pixar Place shut its doors with the opening of Toy Story Land.

  • The Pixar Studios sign at the front of the land was removed, and Pixar Place was officially

  • an extinct land at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

  • During the process of putting construction walls around the area, it looked like Disney

  • was just gonna be abandoning Pixar Place- well that was until an announcement was made

  • in late September of 2018.

  • Disney announced that beginning in January 2019 the incredibles would be taking over

  • Pixar Place and that’s where this story leads us today.

  • From January 18th until September 30th, 2019, Pixar Place has been reopened and is transformed

  • into Municiberg for An Incredible Celebration!

  • Now you might be wondering what exactly can you find in this newly reopened area and what’s

  • changed?

  • Well thats what were gonna be discussing today as we count down the Top 5 Hidden Secrets

  • & Attractions of Pixar Place.

  • The Extinct Reopened Disney Land.

  • Number 5 Pixar Place has reopened as Municiberg, which

  • is the city where a lot of the Incredibles 2 takes place.

  • The Disney website says Celebrate with the Incredibles at Pixar Place, and the park map

  • still lists the area as being Pixar Place but as you can see right from the entrance,

  • the iconic Pixar Studios sign has not returned for the re opening of the land.

  • So is this still Pixar Place or is it just Municiberg now?

  • Sure, that distinct brick used at Pixar Studios in Emeryville California still makes up the

  • buildings at Hollywood Studios, and just the general look of the area isn’t as metropolitan

  • looking as Municiberg in the film.

  • But not only did the Pixar Sign not return but all the silver studio signs in the land

  • have also been removed.

  • There’s no more Story Department next to the gift shop or the Lighting sign around

  • the area where Luxo Jr used to be.

  • Now youll find a sign for the DevTech Plaza branch.

  • DevTech is a telecommunications company that was introduced in the incredibles 2.

  • Youll also find some other Incredibles 2 references scattered around the area, like

  • this poster for Doozles are Dozing a new musical, based on the best selling Children’s book.

  • There’s a little scene in Incredibles 2 where Robert is reading a book to Jack Jack

  • called Doozles are Dozing.

  • All the doodles areDoozles are Dozing.

  • Eyelids so heavydrooping-

  • At the front entrance youll find the Municiberg Visitor Centre and at the back of the land,

  • there’s a giant City of Municiberg seal on the ground.

  • So it’s safe to say that Pixar Place as we once knew it does not exist anymore and

  • joins the list of extinct Disney lands.

  • Disney could still calling the area Pixar Place just for familiarity sake since Municiberg

  • is not a permanent addition at Hollywood Studios.

  • It’s set to end September 30th, 2019 and the rumour is that once Star Wars Galaxy’s

  • Edge opens, this area will be used as an overflow exit from Galaxys Edge just to alleviate some

  • congestion in Toy Story Land.

  • I guess well find out if this all becomes true in near the end of 2019, but for now

  • Municiberg is here to stay.

  • Number 4 Prior to the opening of Toy Story land, most

  • of the Toy Story theming in Pixar Place was removed and this here is what the area looked

  • like in August of 2018.

  • There wasn’t much left and it was pretty bare, but with a keen eye, youll still

  • notice some Toy Story remnants while walking through Municiberg.

  • Let’s start with the gift shop on the left hand side.

  • During its time themed to Toy Story, it used to look like this, but now its been turned

  • into Municiberg gifts.

  • Its a really simple gift shop.

  • It appears they just removed the oversized toy theming from the old shelves and turned

  • them into regular merchandise shelves.

  • This red shelf which used to be a battle ship board, lost its battleships and pegs in favour

  • of a generic decorative design and the purple shelf lost its silver spine, handles and clips

  • and were just made into two plain purple shelves.

  • Next door to Municiberg Gifts is the Neighbourhood bakery.

  • During its time themed to Toy Story, it used to be called the Hey Howdy Hey Takeway, and

  • when we take a wider look, two very prominent props were recycled and reused.

  • Woody’s face was wiped off the cookie jar and the thermos got a new retro 60s look to

  • fit in with mMniciberg.

  • Now the main draw of the original Pixar Place was Toy Story Mania.

  • This is what the entrance used to look like, but now the building has been renamed to Municiberg

  • Plaza and in place of the old ride entrance, youll find a photo wall.

  • It's very safe to say that this building is no longer the main draw of the land.

  • You can still spot the oversized crown molding and baseboards from Toy Story Mania, so little

  • hints of Andy’s room still exist if you know where to look.

  • There isn’t really much they can do with the building since Toy Story Mania is still

  • on the other side of the wall so at least they found some use for it, but it could have

  • been something a lot better.

  • Since were living in the age of Instagram walls, there is another wall on the right

  • hand side as soon as you walk into the land.

  • Its fun, vibrant and very retro; perfect for any Instagram feed.

  • Number 3 As you make your way through Municiberg, youll

  • wanna keep an eye out for the Jack Jack scavenger hunt which is one of the three attraction

  • experiences.

  • Jack Jack's quick and you can spot his little footprints everywhere.

  • Clues have been hidden all around the land from laser scars across the walkways, to cookie

  • crumbs and hand prints.

  • That Jack Jack is pretty wild and has even been able to break through the bricks of the

  • buildings so definitely look high and low to find him.

  • Disney always does such a great job with their walkway details and can I just say how delicious

  • these fake cookie crumbs look though.

  • You just wanna pick them up and eat em!

  • Number 2 Now after you droll over those cookie crumbs,

  • if you take a look up youll find one of the main draws of an Incredible Celebration

  • in Municiberg.

  • The Edna Mode Experience can be found inside the building where Buzz Lightyear and Woody

  • used to meet.

  • Prior to this housing Edna Mode, the outside of what used to be Woody’s Picture shooting

  • Coral looked like this and the oversized tinker toys have been traded in for these sleek posters.

  • During its time as the Woody and Buzz meet and greet, the inside of the queue contained

  • many oversized toy cut outs, and the meet and greet brought you into Andy’s room.

  • The Edna Mode Experience is one area of the former Pixar Place that was really plussed.

  • Once youre inside youll find Edna Mode’s super suit gallery where she has some of her

  • marvellous creations on display!

  • I honestly think Disney did a great job with the theming and detail of this new meet and

  • greet; it really immerses you into the world of the Incredibles.

  • After youve walked passed all of Edna’s magazine covers and news paper clippings,

  • youll get the chance to meet Edna Mode herself!

  • There’s something about this retro 60s style that just looks really clean and sophisticated,

  • especially when you compare it to the Toy Story theming that was there before.

  • Overall, the Edna Mode experience is definitely a super fun time!

  • Number 1 Another major draw of an Incredible Celebration

  • is the Super Shindig dance party where you get to bust a move with Frozone, Elasti-girl

  • and Mr. Incredible.

  • Now usually the dance parties at the Disney theme parks have hosts and two members from

  • the Channel Two news are the hosts of the Super Shindig Dance party.

  • If youre a fan of the citizens of Hollywood at Hollywood Studios or the Citizens of Main

  • street at Magic Kingdom, then youll definitely enjoy these two news anchors.

  • They bring a really fun interactive dynamic into the area.

  • Ron the news reporter makes his way through Municiberg, talking with guests who may just

  • make it on the big screen.

  • {Guest} This has been a tasty delight.

  • Back to you Linda

  • Thanks Ron!

  • Ooo that was fun!

  • I think Ron was dropped on his head as a baby.

  • Hey would you like me to bring out another Super?

  • This next super uses her super flexibility to stop villains, planes, trains, automobiles

  • and most recently ships!

  • {Elastigirl} Hi everyone!

  • You all look out of sight today.

  • {Mr. Incredible} Hello Elastigirl.

  • {Elastigril}; Well hi Mr. Incredible, Its nice to see you.

  • Ohh Elastigirl and Mr. Incredible, I don’t know who to talk to first.

  • As you can see the entire experience is more than just a dance party; its a show with scripted

  • segments and interactive elements.

  • Sea Otters fall asleep holiday hands.

  • You know what’s more incredible than that?

  • Dancing!

  • Let’s do some.

  • Yeahhhh

  • Really, anyone regardless of age can enjoy different aspects of the Super Shindig Dance

  • party!

  • Now this archway right here is where Municiberg ends.

  • Before Pixar Place originally closed, the area behind it, which is this right here,

  • used to be guest accessible but Disney did not reopen this section with Municiberg.

  • Its currently a backstage area so I think its very safe to say that it’s completely

  • extinct and we may never see this streets of America facade ever again.

  • Overall, it’s really great that this small area at Hollywood Studios has reopened again

  • after being closed for 6 months.

  • Parts of Municiberg do look sort of temporary but then other parts look really great like

  • the Edna Mode Experience!

  • If you do find yourself at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Municiberg is a fun little area to

  • check out in addition to all the other rides and attractions the park currently offers.

  • So what are your opinions on Municiberg taking over the former Pixar Place?

  • Would you like to see this stay past Sept 30th and become a permanent addition at Hollywood

  • Studios?
