Fans of Pixar’s sleeper hit Turning Red will be happy to know that Mei and her friends have taken over both Disneyland and Disney California Adventure in a big way.

During Pixar Fest at the Disneyland Resort, the Turning Red crew have brought 4*Town into the spotlight for show-stopping moments that will get you on your feet. First, during the day, you can catch them featured on their own float in the Better Together: A Pixar Pals Celebration parade at Disney’s California Adventure. We get to finally see red panda Mei she performs “Nobody Like You” with 4*Town and her best friends—even Mei’s dad in the cardboard red panda costume gets in on the action. It’s exciting to see Disney lean into its own boy band fandom. Take a look below to see the Turning Red parade float in action!

Then at night, Turning Red is featured twice during Together Forever: A Pixar Nighttime Spectacular. The first segment features Mei’s introduction with friends and her red panda transformation practice set to fireworks; it’s so cool to see a kaiju-sized panda Mei on the Sleeping Beauty castle and a welcome addition to the show.

Together Forever is a story about meeting new friends. It’s about taking those friends and setting out on adventures. And it’s about overcoming adversity together,” shared KC Wilkerson, the principal media designer for Disney Live Entertainment at the Disneyland Resort and show director for the return of Together Forever. He noted that Turning Red’s story was perfect for the parade’s theme and wraps it all up in the film’s second appearance in the show. “We’ve also changed what we call the walk-out of the show—we changed the song so we get to enjoy an instrumental version of ‘Nobody Like You’ from Turning Red,” Wilkerson said. And it’s such a sweet moment to close out on.

Celebrate Pixar Fest at the Disneyland Resort April 26 to August 4.
