With great power comes great responsibility… and hunger! If there’s one thing no hero or heroine should go without, it’s a delicious meal. As of Thursday, December 7, you can now enjoy a dinner buffet with your favorite heroes at the all-new Marvel Character Dinner. In case meeting these characters in person isn’t enough to ignite your excitement, you’ll also indulge in a menu created specifically for this new experience.

Located in Cafe 4 in Marvel Super Hero Island at Universal’s Islands of Adventure, this dinner buffet will feature Captain America, Spider-Man, Wolverine, Cyclops, Storm and Rogue. Each character comes to your table to sign autographs and take photos, so start practicing your superhero pose! And what better way to share this epic experience with your friends (bragging rights!) than with one digital photo from My Universal Photos – included in the experience.

Enjoy fresh salads like orzo and mozzarella and tomato. We’ll also be serving up roasted rosemary lemon chicken, shrimp scampi and chicken scallopini (just to name a few).

Penne Bolognese, stuffed jumbo shells and specialty pizzas are the perfect option for any superhero. And of course – we didn’t forget the desserts. A heroic portion of assorted desserts will end your meal on the sweetest of notes.

Marvel Character Dinner will be available Thursday – Sunday, from 5p.m. – 7p.m. Reservations are recommended and can be made online or by calling (407) 224-FOOD (3663). This experience is one that any Marvel fan will not want to miss.

Dinner isn’t the only meal you can enjoy with your favorite Universal Orlando characters. You can grab breakfast with our characters on select days at Loews Royal Pacific Resort and Hard Rock Hotel.

Grab your family and friends, bring your appetite and enjoy!

As Disney Parks Chairman Bob Chapek announced at the D23 Expo in August, Disneyland Resort guests are invited to celebrate their favorite Disney·Pixar stories during Pixar Fest. Beginning April 13, 2018, this limited-time celebration of friendship and beyond will feature the debut of an all-new fireworks spectacular and the return of two favorite parades as well as even more beloved Pixar characters, new décor, atmosphere entertainment, themed food and beverage and new merchandise items.

“Together Forever – A Pixar Nighttime Spectacular” will light up Disneyland park beginning April 13. In addition to dazzling pyrotechnics and memorable music, the theme of friendship, ever-present in most Pixar films, is celebrated in this nighttime spectacular. Guests are invited to embark on an emotional journey that starts when unlikely Pixar characters first meet. As they set out on adventures and overcome obstacles together, “Together Forever” celebrates the everlasting friendships forged by beloved Pixar pals. The story comes to life through projections on iconic park locations: Sleeping Beauty Castle, the water screens of the Rivers of America, the façade of “it’s a small world” and the buildings of Main Street, U.S.A. This nighttime spectacular will even feature a special flyover by Buzz Lightyear at Sleeping Beauty Castle.

‘CARS’ CHARACTERS ‘PAINT THE NIGHT’ (ANAHEIM, Calif.)— Mack from the Disney●Pixar ‘Cars’ films is one of the characters featured in this all-new new after-dark spectacular at Disneyland park inspired by the iconic ‘Main Street Electrical Parade.’ ‘Paint the Night’ is full of vibrant color and more than 1.5 million, brilliant LED lights and features special effects, unforgettable music, and energetic performances that bring beloved Disney and Disney●Pixar stories to life. Celebrating 60 years of magic, ‘Paint the Night’ is one of three new nighttime spectaculars which will immerse guests in the worlds of Disney stories like never before. The Diamond Celebration at the Disneyland Resort begins Friday, May 22, 2015.

Also on April 13, the popular “Paint the Night” parade will return, this time to Disney California Adventure park. The parade features many Pixar stories, including characters from “Toy Story,” “Monsters, Inc.” and “Cars,” and another Pixar story will join “Paint the Night” parade later in the year.

With the launch of Pixar Fest, “Pixar Play Parade” will make its way through Disneyland park for the first time. The parade will begin as most Pixar films have, with an appearance by the iconic and adorable Pixar lamp. Other new parade elements will feature characters from “UP” and “Inside Out.”

The Pixar Shorts film festival will feature rotating favorites such as “For the Birds” and “Lava” at the Sunset Showcase Theater in Hollywood Land in Disney California Adventure park throughout most of Pixar Fest. The Paradise Gardens area will feature a new Pixar-themed musical troupe along with Pixar character greeting opportunities as well as crafts and activities for our younger guests.

Guests can get into character and celebrate friendship with a host of new merchandise, including an exclusive Pixar Fest charm bracelet. With multiple bracelet options and a variety of charms with fun friendship messages and favorite Pixar characters, guests can mix and match for themselves, or friends and family!

All of these exciting new experiences come in addition to the many attractions and entertainment throughout the Disneyland Resort that include your favorite Pixar characters. Join the celebration when Pixar Fest begins April 13, 2018!
