Mickey’s Fun Wheel deviates from traditional Ferris wheels in that most of the gondolas slide inwards and outwards as the wheel rotates. And, if you haven’t yet experienced these swinging gondolas, consider yourself warned! We (and “we” refers to two adults and four children 7 years of age and under) were not prepared for the sudden feeling of coming unhinged from the ride! That first slide brought on shrieks from all of us. Swinging in a stiff breeze while suspended over the rippling waters of Paradise Pier Lagoon made the ride memorable enough to justify waiting in such a slow-loading line.
At night, Mickey’s Fun Wheel illuminates in a spectrum of colors and designs. On our upcoming Mouse Holiday Family Spring Break we’re looking forward to playing Mickey’s Fun Wheel Challenge (via mobile device) while waiting for the spectacular World of Color show to begin!
Location: Find Mickey’s Fun Wheel in the Paradise Pier section of Disney California Adventure Park. Disneyland Resort.
