Disney Reimagines Mickey’s Fun Wheel into Pixar Pal-A-Round at Pixar Pier

As Disney continues to transform the old Paradise Pier at Disney California Adventure into Pixar Pier, another iconic ride is getting a pretty significant makeover. The Mickey’s Fun Wheel ride will soon re-open as Pixar Pal-A-Round. The redesigned ride will have 24 new gondolas featuring the popular Pixar characters such as Joy and Sadness from “Inside Out,” Lightning McQueen and Mater from “Cars,” and Miguel and Hector from “Coco.”

Thankfully, the giant Mickey face that overlooks Paradise Bay and has become a symbol of DCA over the years will remain part of the redesign.

Here are a few concept art renditions of the new Pixar Pal-A-Round gondolas (source):

I am founder and editor of DisneyNews.us. My passion for all things Disney goes pretty far back but was deepened by two semi-recent developments:1) The birth of my son (who is now 7 years old and can't get enough Disney); and 2) Disney’s purchase of Lucasfilm/Star Wars (did I mention I was a super Star Wars geek?)I recently came to the realization that I spent a significant portion of my day reading articles about Disney and watching it with my son, so it only made sense that I would start sharing some of what I read and see and building a little community around it.Other interests include Disney, Sports, 80's Nostalgia, LEGO, Star Wars and Tech Gadgets.
