    Whatchu talkin' bout Willis?

    The wheel has turned into a family tradition, simply because of the swinging gondolas. You can't find those everywhere.

      I'm ok with it because....

      1) It's used well in WOC....
      2) Looks nice
      3) not enough room to make another attraction in it's spot and it gets 30 mins lines
      Happy Halloween!!!

        I love It it help balance out the sight of Paradise pier, especially since they took out Malaboomer . The ride may not be a huge E or even D ticket but it a nice simple ride that is getting enough guests to be considered a success, Paradise Pier without the wheel would look like something is missing for sure without any balance between Screamin'.

          Sure, but you can probably say that about almost anything that was built post-Walt Disney. Technology permitting, of course.

            Lose Mickey's Puke-Inducing Death Wheel? I don't know...
            Seriously, as much of a motion-sickeningly miserable time I had on that thing yesterday, I wouldn't be celebrating its loss. It helps make for a beautiful landscape and with it all lit up at night, it's truly gorgeous.

                my friend was terrified of this ride last week. I don't think it needs to be removed, but I probably still won't ride it often.

                  I've said this before, but another thing about the Wheel is that it uses a design that is only used in one or two other wheels in the WORLD. If someone can't get to Coney Island to ride the Wonder Wheel--this is the only other place in America, and one of only three in the world--to use that double track design.

                    While its not a ride I enjoy or go on with any regularity, I don't see any reason to remove it. I think its unique enough to hold its place in the park. As others have said, its not a typical wheel ride, and its not like any of the local fairs etc have one.

                      While Mickey's Fun Wheel isn't my fave attraction in the park, it certainly adds to the wonderful skyline that is Paradise Pier! It makes me think of all the old amusement parks of yore and all the fun I had visiting them as a kid.

                      Will I ride the moving gondolas? Nope! LOL But I truly do LOVE the way the Fun Wheel looks next to Calfornia Screamin' at night all lit up and glowing... and beautiful. *Happy Sigh*

                        This will forever be the one of the worst arguments regarding changes to any park.

                          I can't stand when people try to use the "Walt wouldn't have wanted this" so-called excuse.

                          The Mickey Wheel is fine and I think it compliments the look and feel of Paradise Pier.

                            It really does look beautiful at night and during the day, but especially with the lights at night. The way it is integrated into the World of Color is brilliant. Not only that, but some of the best views of the resort are to be seen from the fixed gondolas.

                            The slow load time and low capacity will account for the long lines.

                              The fun wheel should stay. It is unique and beautiful. All it needs is a better que. I say remove jellyfish and zephyr!
