Mickey’s Fun Wheel gets a new Pixar name

Disneyland announced today that the former Mickey’s Fun Wheel attraction will be renamed Pixar Pal-A-Round.

The new giant wheel will feature characters from a variety of Pixar films, including “The Incredibles,” “Inside Out” and “Toy Story.” Each of the 24 uniquely themed 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.”

No official opening date was given for Pixar Pal-A-Round, but it seems likely that it will be ready in time for Pixar Fest this summer at Disneyland Resort.
