I don’t know about you, but my 2019 has been off to a pretty super start…. especially since I got to visit An Incredible Celebration at Disney’s Hollywood Studios! If you haven’t heard, Pixar Place has been revamped into the spitting image of a Municiberg (the city featured in The Incredibles series) block, complete with tons of retro details and a Super Shindig dance party. The second I heard the famous Jack-Jack Cookie Num Num would finally be available on the east coast, I knew I had to try one as soon as possible—and check out all the other offerings too, of course.
The Municiberg block that has taken up residence in Pixar Place is totally packed with details. From the silhouettes of Jack-Jack singed into the building façades to the retro posters and advertisements, there’s a ton to take in and appreciate!
And it wouldn’t really be a new Disney World offering if there weren’t a wall involved, would it? Luckily, there’s an entire mural dedicated to An Incredible Celebration—and it’s completely covered, so bad lighting will never be a problem! My favorite part is where it’s painted to look like Violet’s force field, but the whole mural is photogenic, so you really can’t go wrong.
If you’re creative enough, you can even find a Secret Bonus Wall right next to the Neighborhood Bakery. Okay, so maybe it’s not a wall… but if you angle the camera right, it kinda looks like one! See for yourself, featuring my favorite model, Emily:
If dance parties are your thing, the Super Shindig is about to be your new favorite! It has an actual plot and context (which is more than most Disney World dance parties can claim), and there’s the added bonus of a roaming news reporter with a camera who might just stop you for a live interview. Mr. Incredible, Elastigrl, and Frozone all make appearances, so no matter who your favorite super is, you won’t be disappointed! (Unless you’re like me and it’s Violet, in which case you might be a little disappointed.)
Let’s be honest, though. You didn’t come to An Incredible Celebration to bust a move. You came to meet the main attraction: Edna Mode. Emily and I made a beeline for Edna’s meet and greet the second we stepped foot in Municiberg, and we were not disappointed. The wait was only about 15 minutes even though it was a fairly crowded Saturday afternoon, and Edna made sure to compliment both of our outfits and take plenty of pictures!
To be honest, I came here to eat one treat, and one treat only: the Jack-Jack Cookie Num Num, which is almost as painful to write as it is to say. Fortunately, it’s not nearly as painful to eat. If you like chocolate chip cookies, you’ll love the JJCNN. It’s pretty filling though, so you might want to share it with someone! I’m not much of a food blogger, but for what it’s worth, I’d give it a solid 8/10.
If you plan on visiting Hollywood Studios between now and September 30, be sure to check out An Incredible Celebration! It’s just big enough to feel like a fully realized Municiberg block, but not so big that it’ll take away from all that time you plan on spending in the Slinky Dog Dash line. I definitely recommend it. And if you’ve already been, let me know your favorite part in the comments!
