Mickey’s Fun Wheel Is Now The “PIXAR Pal-A-Round” at Disney California Adventure

When Pixar Pier opens this summer, the focal point of this new area at Disney California Adventure will be the Pixar Pal-A-Round, formerly Mickey’s Fun Wheel.


This reimagining of a guest favorite will still include the iconic face of Mickey Mouse on the Paradise Bay side of the wheel. However, each of the 24 gondolas will feature different pairs of Pixar pals, including Joy and Sadness from “Inside Out,” Lightning McQueen and Mater from “Cars,” and Miguel and Hector from “Coco”, among many others. You may recall that we had the first pictures of these gondolas last week.


When the Pixar Pal-A-Round opens this summer, the attraction will offer the same breathtaking views as before.

  1. Is it just me or does the pie-eyed Mickey seem thematically inconsistent? Keeping it seems even more strange now that his name will be dropped from the attraction.

    1. I believe they’re keeping it because the Mickey face kind of plays a role in the World of Color show (as creative director Steven Davison envisioned it).

  2. I hope they change it into a giant lamp. The sun and the Mickey just never worked. Nothing is as classy and timeless as a desk lamp. I love lamp!
