I can't say that I'm a fan of the design, either.

I know quite a lot about Donkeys!

I think it looks a lot better than the old designs though!

Looks to be the same janky brakes though!

Agreed--major downgrade. It's official now, the only thing I like about this change is the name Incredicoaster.

I don’t care what the trains look like as long as the ride experience is better.

Same.

Though this whole re-theme of Paradise Pier is lazy and tacky. I still am interesting in seeing the final result.

Frankly, I don't think they look any better or worse that the original trains.

I just hope the new soundtrack syncs well. Having a custom soundtrack synced to a coaster really elevates it as an experience in my book!

I'm visiting Disneyland and DCA for the first time at the end of May.
Does anyone know the liklihood of Disney soft-opening Pixar Pier/Incredicoaster before mid June?

I know the official opening isn't until the 23rd, but I was wondering if anyone has experienced soft openings at DCA before.

Thanks!


Can't really say for sure, but back when Big Thunder Mountain Railroad was getting ready to open they would just suddenly allow people to get in line and hop on it. It wasn't an open all day type thing. It was really just a matter of being in the right place at the right time.
