Pixar Pal-A-Round Transformation Complete, Characters Take to the Sky

Even though Mickey Mouse’s name is no longer a part of the attraction, his smiling face will continue to look out over Paradise Park. As part of the transformation, the ferris wheel-style ride has been repainted and updated with a new color scheme and Pixar character decals. Guests can ride in stationary or swinging gondolas that feature 1 of 24 Pixar pals. Each brightly colored gondola has a matching set on the wheel featuring their pal.

Pixar Pal-A-Round Pictures

Pixar films have always celebrated friendship, so it makes sense that this ride would focus on that. The name is a fun play on words and a cute way to incorporate the theme. Here’s a look at finished gondolas. We tried to get everyone’s pals as they we’re coming to the loading dock however it looks like a few friends were still enjoying the sunshine.
