Disney Parks After Dark: Pixar Pal-A-Round at Disney California Adventure Park

Tonight’s Disney Parks After Dark post takes us to Pixar Pier at Disney California Adventure park as Pixar Pal-A-Round glows against a Southern California sunset.

The focal point of Pixar Promenade, the Pixar Pal-A-Round celebrates the stories and friendships from many Pixar films. If you look closely, each of the 24 gondolas on the Pixar Pal-A-Round features a different Pixar pal and offers breathtaking views of Pixar Pier once on board. Whether you enjoy the thrill of a swinging gondola or the peaceful vista-viewing of the non-swinging vehicles … there’s a little something for everyone at Pixar Pal-A-Round.


  • I very much enjoyed the walks in DCA as the sun rises!

  • The name is clever. However, Mickey is not Pixar. Why is Mickey on the Pixar Pal Around? I thought this was Pixar Pier not Mickey’s Pixar Pier. I I personally like Mickey on it though, but it does not fit the theming of the Pier. I also love how many names this ride has had, Sun Wheel, Mickey’s Fun wheel, and now Pixar Pal-A-Round. I can’t want to have fun in the sun!
