Matt Anderson's Take
Pixar Pal-A-Round, formerly called Mickey's Fun Wheel, offers two different ride experiences. One is a tradition Ferris Wheel experience where you board a cabin and slow revolve around.

The second option has you boarding a cabin that is on a track that is independent of the wheel itself. As the wheel moves around the track is changing direction so your car will slide around on the track. At times it will drop down a bit or swing a bit but it's all very gentle. It's called a wonder wheel and this one is one of only two in the US still in operation (the other is at Coney Island in New York).

Either way, the 9 minute ride is a great way to relax, cool off, and get great views of California Adventure from 150 up in the air.

A lot of fun as long as heights don't bother you. Lines here get oddly long. The swinging cars add quite a bit more thrill but aren't for everyone.

A ferris wheel with carts that move (or not).

I love this just for the reviews and being able to sit down for a while. I don't think it's worth a 30+ minute wait but of the line is shorter I always hop on.

The line moves incredible slow but once you get on it's worth the wait. The views are amazing from up that high.

If the line is long it takes while to get on but the views are great.

Calming, relaxing, and amazing views over California Adventure. One of my favorite rides in the park.

Great place to relax your legs for a while while you cool off. It's shady in the car and usually you get a nice breeze. On top of that the views are fantastic from up here.
