Best Place to Steal a Kiss at Disneyland Resort
Sail up and over the beaming face of Mickey Mouse aboard this spin-sational Ferris wheel. Hop inside a roomy gondola for a breezy, 9-minute jaunt above Paradise Bay. Stroll along the sprawling Boardwalk at Paradise Pier and make your way beneath a towering wheel adorned with Mickey’s smiling face. On Mickey’s Fun Wheel, the rotating rays of the wheel spokes twinkle like a kaleidoscope. Before you take off, choose the type of gondola you want to ride in: stationary or swinging. Then, hop on board and ascend 150-feet high in the sky, marveling at the scenic views of Disney California Adventure Park all around you. 24 colorful gondolas revolve around the giant wheel at Paradise Pier. There are 8 stationary gondolas identified by the face of Mickey Mouse, and 16 swinging gondolas featuring Goofy, Minnie, Pluto and Donald faces. The swinging gondolas glide on interior rails and sway during the trip, creating a sometimes dizzying—but always exhilarating—effect. All gondolas carry up to 8 people.
