    Ok so there is an option to go on either a swinging or non swinging cart. It stops a lot and goes very high. Kids love swinging, but I personally love the non swinging. I love Disney!

    The swinging gondolas can be fun, but a bit frustrating when you're in a group of 3 or less and have to be paired off with complete strangers. Even with the pairing off of strangers for the smaller groups, you still end up waiting at least an average of 30 to 45 minutes. It's also a little frustrating that the ride goes by so quickly after that seemingly long wait. Sometimes it even feels like you only make one full revolution with all the stopping of loading and unloading of guests.

    On the flip side, the Fun Wheel is absolutely beautiful at night. The wheel changes different colors and photographs beautifully.

    Perhaps if you're afraid of heights, this isn't the ride for you. For those who love a great view and a classic ride, Mickey's Fun Wheel in Disney's California Adventure theme park is a must. From its peak, riders get a view of much of Anaheim, a view that both adds to the attraction and (sadly to say) also kills some of the Disney illusion.

    There's a reason that many call this ride "Mickey's Wheel of Death"; it's TERRIFYING! If you are dragged onto one of the swinging gondolas, get ready to feel petrified! Or electrified, if you're not afraid of heights/falling/feeling like you're dying. You will swing forward and face straight down to the ground, and then fall backwards, and there's NOTHING TO HOLD ONTO. No bars, no seat-belts, and PLENTY of barf bags. NEVER AGAIN.
