When visiting Disney California Adventure, Guests can visit the Pixar Pier, where they can experience reimagined Pixar attractions and experiences like the Inside Out Emotional Whirlwind, Jessie’s Critter Carousel, Toy Story Midway Mania!, the Pixar Pal-A-Round, and the Incredicoaster, try their luck at the Games of Pixar Pier, shop around the stores, and enjoy delicious snacks from the several Pixar-themed stands in the area.
While many Guests find this area and its attractions to be some of the best in the Park, some are terrified of taking a spin at the Pixar Pal-A-Round, especially on one of the swinging gondolas, and even more so of joining The Incredibles as they try to catch Jack-Jack on the Incredicoaster.
With drops of over 100 feet, the Incredicoaster may not be suitable for Guests who are afraid of heights, especially after what happened to Redditor itsmleonard (u/itsmleonard), who posted that he and other Guests had to be evacuated from the ride last night due to an emergency stop right after launch. While he comments Guests were not let in on the reason for the emergency stop, he shares that the evacuation process was very smooth and that, thanks to a leveled platform that locks between the car and the stairs, the fact that they had to get out of the vehicles at an angle wasn’t a problem.
Redditors mentioned they had witnessed the ride being evacuated as they were in the Parks as well but didn’t know the reason and asked if getting down the stairs had been scary. The original poster, itsmleonard, responded the following:
They didn’t share what the reason for the e-stop was. Honestly, I am afraid of heights so I was more nervous at first but once I got out of the car and was standing on the stairs it wasn’t too bad. Thankfully, we were only about 1/3 the way up the lift (and I was in the last car of the train).
Some Redditors also mentioned that it seemed like the maintenance crew was absent on Sundays. Others commented that maintenance was also absent on “Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays…”, implying rides break down often at Disney Parks.
There is so much to see and do at Disney California Adventure Park! Guests can enjoy Buena Vista Street as they walk the roads Walt had in Hollywood, enjoy a hand-dipped corn dog at Award Wieners, Head to Cars Land to enjoy the neon signage and Radiator Springs Racers, check out the new Marvel-themed land in Avengers Campus, where they can meet Spider-Man, Loki, Ant-Man, Black Widow, Doctor Strange, and so many more characters. And of course, you have to ride WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure and Guardians of the Galaxy: MISSION BREAKOUT. Rock on the Silly Symphony Swings as well, and go catch Jack-Jack on Incredicoaster! The list of rides and attractions never ends!
Plus, at Disneyland, there is so much for Guests to enjoy! Now that the mask mandate has dropped for fully vaccinated Guests, Guests can enter buildings without a face covering if they so choose. Walking up to Sleeping Beauty Castle is always a dream, especially when you get to go inside and relive the story of Aurora and Maleficent. Riding classics like “it’s a small world,” Pirates of the Caribbean, Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride, The Haunted Mansion, Matterhorn Bobsleds, Splash Mountain, and more will have you feeling the magic, and craving a churro! Toontown is currently gearing up for a massive change which will be revealed in 2023 with the reopening of the land and the debut of Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway. Plus, now at Disneyland, Guests can enjoy Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge for some blue milk or green milk and ride Rise of the Resistance and Smuggler’s Run.
