Disney debuts Pixar Play Parade on March 14
Concept art of the Pixar Play Parade debuting at Disney’s California Adventure on March 14 shows a series of floats and performers that squirt water and blow bubbles into the audience.
The new parade, replacing the underwhelming Block Party Bash, stars Pixar movie characters from “Toy Story,” “The Incredibles,” “Monsters Inc.,” “A Bug’s Life,” “Finding Nemo,” “Cars” and “Ratatouille.”
An “Incredibles” float features an Omnidroid robot with villain Syndrome at the helm and a flaming baby Jack-Jack atop the ominous automaton. Mr. Incredible, Elastigirl and Frozone fly personal hovercrafts alongside the floats.

Mr. Potatohead’s flower lapel squirts unsuspecting parade watchers. And Nemo and Dory puppets blow bubbles as if they’re under water.
