Get Your First Look at Inside Out Emotional Whirlwind at Disney California Adventure’s Pixar Pier

Pixar Pier at Disney’s California Adventure is about to get a brand new attraction. The Disney Parks Blog released a first look and some new details for the Inside Out Emotional Whirlwind attraction.

Update (6/23/2019):

  • On Sunday, June 23 Laughing Place was at Disney California Adventure and we were delighted to see Inside Out Emotional Whirlwind was being tested! Take a look:


  • The new attraction is inspired by Pixar’s hit film Inside Out and will be located in the Inside Out Headquarters neighborhood of the recently opened Pixar Pier.
  • Guests will ride in one of eight “Memory Movers” as they help Joy, Sadness, Disgust, Anger and Fear sort through the memories being collected.
  • To go along with this whimsical new attraction, Academy Award-winning composer Michael Giacchino created five new original music tracks, one for each emotion.
  • This is not the first time Giacchino’s work will be featured in Pixar Pier. Last year, the composer worked with Walt Disney Imagineering to create the music for the Incredicoaster.
  • Disney Parks Blog released two images of the new attraction.

More on Inside Out Emotional Whirlwind:

  • No specific opening date has been announced for the new attraction yet but it is slated to open this summer.
  • In May, Disneyland Resort revealed several attraction posters featuring Riley’s Emotions and headquarter locations.
