ABC7 Mornings' Jessica Castro had a chance to ride the coaster ahead of its debut.

The old California Screamin' coaster now features brand new music, lighting, and special effects making it a whole new ride.

"We've never had an 'Incredibles' attraction anywhere in the world," said Creative Director of Pixar Animation Studios Roger Gould. "And we've wanted to make it for years and years and this is just so perfect. The energy, tyhe speed, the excitement of that coaster is fantastic but it never had a storyline. Now we're bringing this beloved set of characters, 'The Incredibles' family to it and it's super fun."

And for Pixar fans, that's just the beginning.

"When you come into the Pixar Pier entry area, that's your welcome statement. Going on from there we have Incredibles Park, Toy Story Boardwalk, Pixar Promenade and Inside Out Headquarters," said Jeff Shaver Moskowitz of Walt Disney Imagineering.

One of the highlights is a new fireworks show called "Together Forever: A Pixar Nighttime Spectacular."

And if all this Pixar fun is making you hungry, grab a bite to eat at the all-new Lamp Light Lounge.

So this summer is the perfect time to come to DIsney California Adventure and say hi to some of your favorite Pixar friends.
