Come Along on a Tour of Pixar Animation Studios #InsideOutEvent

When I saw there was a tour of Pixar Animation Studios on our itinerary for the Inside Out event, I was thrilled! Pixar!?!? Yes! Pixar is located in Emeryville, California just outside of San Francisco and it’s the workplace to many, many extraordinarily talented people!

Pixar Animation StudiosEven the entrance is grand, isn’t it!? As you walk towards the buildings you can’t help but be blown away by the Pixar lamp and the Toy Story ball!

Pixar outside I mean how incredibly cool is it to have bigger-than-life-sized toys at work? That’s me by the lamp to give you an idea of just how big it is! It’s super cool to see in person and even lights up at night! 😉

Pixar Lamp at nightNext thing you see? The Steve Jobs building. Did you know that Steve Jobs was Pixar’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer at one time?

Steve Jobs building at PixarI was super excited to enter this building and get the tour of Pixar Animation Studios started! There was so much to see! This building alone is amazing, not to mention all of the work that is done here!

Inside of the Steve Jobs building is a huge open space that would be amazing to walk into each morning! You are also greeted by some famous Pixar characters!

Outside of the building are tons of extra benefits for the Pixar employees! There’s a basketball court, a volleyball court, a POOL and more!!! It’s incredible and it’s gorgeous!

Pixar Outside ActivitiesThere are many things on the Pixar campus that have taken on a NYC theme due to the fact that they are located on Park Avenue. The second and newest building on the campus is known as Brooklyn. It’s yet another amazing building!

 The architecture is stunning! 

Pixar Characters

There’s also some memorabilia from past movies, some of my favorites: Toy Story and Monster, Inc! 

Jimmy Claxton lounge at Pixar

There’s also a room dedicated to Jimmy Claxton who was the first black man to play organized white baseball in the twentieth century. He played for the Oakland Oaks, which was on the grounds where Pixar is now located. Pixar Employee Kitchen

Check out this amazing employee kitchen! This kitchen is better than the kitchen in my house and I was in love! <3

Pixar Character DecorBrooklyn also has some awesome fun characters from Monsters, Inc and a beautiful picture from Brave. 

Inside Out characters

 All of these characters from Inside Out had their start here at the Pixar campus. It was these characters that took me to San Francisco and allowed for my tour of Pixar Animation Studios. I can’t thank them enough! 

Inside Out EmotionsI even got in touch with my emotions with the help of Inside Out at Pixar Animation Studios. What an amazing time! 

Inside Out opens in theatres June 19, 2015!

I can’t wait – I did get a sneak peek of the movie and it’s super awesome! Check out the trailer if you haven’t seen it:
