Meilin and Ming Lee from “Turning Red” Return for Pixar Fest 2024 at the Disneyland Resort

Hi everyone!

Starting today, Meilin and Ming Lee from “Turning Red” will return as a character experience for Pixar Fest, which runs through August 4th, 2024 at the Disneyland Resort. The mother-daughter pair had met during Lunar New Year at Disney California Adventure and will now meet guests near Grizzly Peak in the same park. Check the Disneyland app for more details.

Meilin Lee is in her red panda form during the Better Together: A Pixar Pals Celebration in Disney California Adventure. She meets guests in more of a mid-panda form, human but with ears and a tail. They are among the many rare character meet and greets at Pixar Fest.
