What's a boardwalk amusement park without midway games? Four old-time pay-for-play games, themed after Pixar movies and features, are offered: La Luna Star Catcher (catch a star), Heimlich's Candy Corn Toss (ball into a target), WALL-E Space Race (squirt water at a target), and Bullseye Stallion Stampede (like skeeball). Purchase a card with play credits at a nearby dispensing machineat a penny a point, the games will cost you $2.50, or $5 for Heimlich (purchase a special play card with prepaid credits at the dispensing machine). Prizes are stuffed toys of various sizes. It's atmospheric but otherwise just pricey. Wheelchair accessible.

California Adventure - California Screamin'
You'll scream for fun on
this retro roller
coaster!
by chezp

Disney updated this classic roller coaster with an Incredibles theme, which re-opened in June 23, 2018. This is a fast-paced, mile-plus-long thrill ride. Your adventure begins with a jet-powered takeoff that catapults your 24-seat vehicle from 0 to 55 in four seconds. The onboard music soundtrack accompanies you smoothly up to heights of 120 ft., through twists and turns, around a 360-degree loop, and screaming down a 108-foot drop at a 50-degree angle. The roller coaster is a state-of-the-art steel construction made to look like an old-fashioned wooden coaster from seaside amusement parks. Be aware that both the start and stop are abrupt. A photo is taken during the ride and available for purchase at the exit. Queue is outdoors and mostly covered. Single rider line is faster (when available) if your party is willing to split up. Rider switch. Health warning. Guests must transfer from wheelchair/ECV to ride.

Height restriction: 48" / 122 cm

King Triton's Carousel
by GingerJ

This attraction is closed as of March 4, 2018 as part of the Pixar Pier re-theming. Disney announced this carousel will become Jessie's Critter Carousel. For historical purposes, this enchanting, colorful carousel featured 56 hand-sculpted and hand-painted sea creatures that bobbed up and down as the carousel revolves in time to calliope music. A "nanny bench" was provided for those who did not wish to ride. The carousel was especially gorgeous at night. The upper panels of the carousel's canopy depicted scenes from historic seaside piers such as Venice Pier and The Pike. Wheelchair/ECV accessible.

This isn't your grandfather's Ferris wheelit's a 16-story, colorful metal wheel with both stationary and sliding/swinging gondolas that seem to disappear below the water's surface. Disney updated this classic ride with a Pixar theme, which re-opened on June 23, 2018.  For a sedate experience, board one of the eight red gondolas that remain in place as the wheel rotates. Thrill-seekers will enjoy one of the 16 other gondolas that swing and slide about as gravity dictates (the vehicles do not go upside down, however). This attraction offers spectacular views of the park and surrounding areas, and is itself a beautiful sight at night when lit up, although it's closed during World of Color. Ride it twice for both experiences! Guests must transfer from ECV to wheelchair to ride.

California Adventure Toy Story Midway Mania Ginger
Let's break some plates!
by GingerJ

This dark ride is based on Pixar's "Toy Story" and is Disney's first interactive 3-D ride. It makes use of digital sets, effects like wind and water spray, and spring-action "guns" to shoot virtual projectiles like eggs, darts, balls, and rings. Look for hidden targets to get extra points and enjoy different levels of play. The "Toy Story Trams" seat four guests each (two groups of two). This ride has fast spins and may cause motion sickness. Partially covered outdoor queue with interactive Mr. Potato Head. A wheelchair-accessible car is available. Must transfer from ECV to wheelchair. Video captioning.
