Gardens by the Bay Singapore’s Children’s Festival Returns With Disney and Pixar’s Inside Out 2

SINGAPORE, May 21, 2024– Get ready to delve into the fascinating world of emotions as Gardens by the Bay Singapore’s Children’s Festival returns for its 10th edition – this time, featuring an exciting collaboration with Disney and Pixar’s Inside Out 2!


Kicking off on 25 May at the iconic Supertree Grove, this will be the only Inside Out 2-themed outdoor carnival in Southeast Asia with large-scale installations. Children can learn about their feelings through play at the various interactive areas inspired by beloved Inside Out 2 characters, such as Joy, Anger, Sadness, Fear and Disgust – alongside new Emotions Anxiety, Envy, Ennui and Embarrassment! Get in touch with your emotions ahead of the release of Inside Out 2 (13 June: Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand, 14 June: Indonesia).

Gardens by the Bay is a premier horticultural attraction, and its Children’s Festival is a signature school holiday event. Most of the activities are free, and this year’s edition runs until 22 June.

Disney and Pixar’s Inside Out 2 returns to the mind of newly minted teenager Riley who’s about to begin high school, just as headquarters is undergoing a sudden demolition to make room for something entirely unexpected: new Emotions! Joining the core Emotions is a group of new arrivals perfectly suited for the teenage years!

Gardens by the Bay CEO Felix Loh said, “We all want our children to be happy and healthy. This year we are excited to team up with Disney for the 10th edition of Gardens by the Bay’s Children’s Festival. Kids can learn about stress and emotions in a fun way through relatable characters and heartwarming stories such as those from Disney and Pixar. More importantly, the event will allow families to bond and spend meaningful time together.”

Singapore Tourism Board’s Director of Attractions, Entertainment and Tourism Concept Development Ashlynn Loo said, “We are thrilled to support Gardens by the Bay’s Children’s Festival – the only place in Southeast Asia where families can enjoy an Inside Out 2-themed outdoor carnival with large-scale installations. We hope visitors will enjoy the fresh and captivating experiences by exploring the various zones inspired by Inside Out 2’s Emotions. As we continue to welcome more visitors back to Singapore, we look forward to bringing more compelling leisure experiences that will appeal to both local and international visitors, as part of our continued collaboration with Disney, solidifying our position as a vibrant leisure and entertainment destination.”

Embark on a journey of self-discovery inspired by Inside Out 2 characters

At this year’s Children’s Festival, families can look forward to an array of installations and activities inspired by both the core and new Emotions of Inside Out 2.

Kaleidoscope of Memories
This centrepiece installation is inspired by the Long Term Memory storage facility that houses millions of Riley’s memories in the Inside Out story.

Children’s Festival has brought this scene to life with colourful, illuminated Memory Orbs at Supertree Grove. Visitors can create their own Memory Orb by scanning a QR code at the installation and completing three simple steps: select the character that best reflects one’s emotion, pose for a photo, and upload your very own Memory Orb to the Kaleidoscope of Memories, where it will be projected alongside others’ memorable moments on the animated wall of this installation.

Mood Swings
The Emotion Joy is the theme of this installation, featuring swings that will be sure to delight children and all who are young-at-heart.

Expression Doodles
Coping with complex emotions is explored at this installation. With designs themed after Sadness and Embarrassment, children may “paint” with a water brush and watch doodles on the installations appear before their eyes.

Emotion Mirrors
Can you keep your cool at this tricky installation? Inspired by the Emotions Fear and Anxiety, attempt to complete the mirror maze and gigantic buzz wire games in nerve-wracking time challenges.

Fort Pillowtown
Inspired by Ennui, children can lie back and relax at the Fort Pillowtown installation, or let their imaginations run wild within the cosy pillow fortresses that they can build.

Memory Orb Mountain
The whirlwind of emotions experienced throughout the evocative journey culminates in harmony and balance at this play area of large inflatable balls symbolic of embracing and balancing all our emotions. Visit in the evenings to catch the balls aglow!

Visitors can also look forward to a special edition of the nightly Garden Rhapsody light and sound show during the duration of Children’s Festival. Garden Rhapsody is a signature night show at Supertree Grove, where the lights on the Supertrees dance to a musical soundtrack every evening at 7.45pm and 8.45pm. The special edition, titled The Medley of Emotions, will see the lights on the Supertrees as well as the Memory Orbs within the Kaleidoscope of Memories installation synchronise their illumination and change colours in harmony with the Inside Out soundtrack.

Complimentary Disney and Pixar themed activities, movie screenings and more

Free activity trail booklets are available, with suggested activities to keep kids entertained such as collecting stamps. Visitors who complete their booklets and collect all the stamps may redeem an Inside Out 2 sticker sheet that is exclusive to Gardens by the Bay’s Children’s Festival.

Visitors with a complete set of stamps may also redeem a souvenir keychain with a Gardens by the Bay exclusive design, that can be customised with little charms inspired by Inside Out 2, while stocks last. Visit the redemption counter to find out more.

Members of the public are also invited to enjoy complimentary outdoor screenings of Disney and Pixar favourites such as Coco, Elemental, Finding Dory and Incredibles 2 on the first two weekends of 25 May and 26 May, and 1 June and 2 June.
