As Disney California Adventure park prepares to welcome Inside Out Emotional Whirlwind to Pixar Pier, we’re excited to share a first look at this family-friendly attraction!

Inspired by the hit Disney and Pixar film “Inside Out,” Emotional Whirlwind opens later this month in the Inside Out Headquarters neighborhood of Pixar Pier. Once you hop aboard one of eight Memory Movers, you’ll take a sense-ational spin and help Riley’s Emotions (aka Joy, Sadness, Anger, Disgust and Fear) sort through memories being collected.

To complement the whimsical atmosphere, Academy Award-winning composer Michael Giacchino created five music tracks, one for each of the emotions. Last year Michael collaborated with Walt Disney Imagineering to compose the music for the thrilling Incredicoaster.

Pixar Pier celebrates its one-year anniversary this weekend. The reimagined land shares the stories and characters of Pixar films with exciting attractions, themed neighborhoods and fun eateries.

We hope you’ll make your own memories when Emotional Whirlwind opens!


  • In the article it notes that it opens later this month. We can’t wait! It sounds fun.

  • They were testing it yesterday and today behind the construction walls, but there were also jackhammers rolling so sounds close but not quite there…

  • Any idea when the attraction will open?
