Pixar Pal-Around

Today Disney revealed some exciting details about the changes taking place to Mickey’s Fun Wheel as part of the new Pixar Pier renovations including a name change! It’s official, this California Adventure icon will officially be renamed the Pixar Pal-A-Round.  The re-imagined attraction will still feature the iconic face of Mickey Mouse. However, each of the 24 gondolas that take riders on an amazing journey around this 160 ft tall Ferris Wheel will feature different pairs of Pixar pals.

Let’s take a look!
