One of our favorite Disney Pixar movies is Up. Our family loves to go on adventures so we loved this story of Carl on a mission with a determined Russell tagging along. Disney Pixar Up is the tenth film to be released by Pixar in 2009 so we are celebrating the film for the tenth week of Pixar Fest with this Disney Pixar Up Grape Soda Float.
Find the recipe and free printable Disney Pixar Up decorative straws below.

Disney Pixar Up in Pixar Play Parade
Wilderness Explorer Russell appears astride the colorful flightless bird, Kevin while Carl Fredricksen and Dug follow behind with Carl’s tethered house floating above in the Pixar Play Parade at Disneyland. You will not want to miss this beautifully colored larger than life float.
Disney Pixar Up in Together Forever Nighttime Spectacular
Several objects have flown above Sleeping Beauty Castle in past nighttime spectaculars, and the largest one ever is in “Together Forever” – Carl Fredricksen’s House from Disney Pixar’s film, Up. This is one sight I want to see at Pixar Fest. I bet it is gorgeous and lights up the sky.
Disney Pixar Up Decorative Straws
To give our Grape Soda Float an extra Up flare, we created this balloon straws. You can download the free printable below and cut them out with a 2″ hole punch. I actually cut around the balloons instead of using the circle but do whatever is easiest for you. I recommend printing on cardstock.
You could print on blue cardstock to look like a sky background or go with white. I used blue striped straws and white paper for my Pixar Up party straws. Once you get the balloons cut out, use a small dab of glue to attach to your paper straws.
Disney Pixar Up is famous for balloons and grape soda. The cute little grape soda pin is significant to Carl in the film so to celebrate at home we made this grape soda float, which is perfect for the summer.
