What Life Would Be Like Working at Pixar

I think it’d be pretty cool to work at Pixar. I mean, come on, who wouldn’t want to eat, breathe, and dream of fun movies all day long and get paid for it?! ¬†Well my dreams came true last week as I went on an excursion to Pixar Animation Studios in San Francisco. Take a look at some of my favorite spots around the campus. Imagine how different your Monday mornings would be going to work at a place like this.

Can’t miss the fun oversized Pixar logo right outside the building’s entrance.

When you step inside the doors, make sure you say hello to Buzz and Woody!

You can’t miss the overflowing display of Oscars that have been awarded to Pixar over the years.

Currently, Pixar looks like a scene straight from the new movie Brave. Employees say they feel like tourists because they get to experience so many different decorative themes with new movie releases.

On extra special days, employees get to experience the movies in real life. In this picture, I’m testing out my archery skills just like Merida from Brave. Other fun activities employees have done – think learned how to cook French food for Ratatouille and visited the local dump for Toy Story 3! Never a dull day at this place, right?!

Boys, if you need to take a break, follow Woody from Toy Story. Ladies, Little Bo Peep will be happy to lead the way for you. Originally, Pixar was suggested to have only ONE bathroom for employees. The idea was to spark creativity in all central locations throughout the company…even the bathrooms.

Favorite spot of all: The free cereal bar for all to enjoy any time of the day. Have a bowl. Or two. It’s like college all over again.

Disclosure: Thanks to Disney for paying for my travel expenses to visit Pixar Animation Studios for the Brave press junket. Brave hits theaters in 3D on June 22, 2012. As always, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
