Inside Out Emotional Whirlwind – Disney California Adventure – Attraction Checklist #87 – John B. deHaas and Grant Baciocco get all emotional as they ride Inside Out Emotional Whirlwind at Disney California Adventure!  Recorded on August 23, 2019.


Welcome to Attraction Checklist.

This episode takes us to Disney California Adventure to ride Inside Out Emotional Whirlwind.  The Disneyland Resort website describes this attraction saying: Tap into Riley’s Emotions when you take a sense-sational spin around the whimsical world inside her mind’s Headquarters.  Guests can be any height to ride this attraction and the thrill level describes it as being a spinning ride.

Before we get all emotional, here are five fast facts about Inside Out Emotional Whirlwind.

1.  Inside Out Emotional Whirlwind opened on June 28, 2019.

2.  The attraction uses the same infrastructure as the Flick’s Fliers attraction we rode back in episode 57.  When Bug’s Land was closed at Disney California Adventure, Flick’s Fliers was moved and rethemed to become the Inside Out Emotional Whirlwind.

3. Each spin on the emotional whirlwind features narration by one of the five emotions featured in the film Inside Out.  On the day the audio for this episode was recorded, I was able to get two of those different narrations, one while waiting in the line, the other while on the attraction.  Both are presented here.

4.  The queue are for the attraction features humorous vacation posters for destinations such as Imagination Land, Personality Island and Cloud Town

5. Figures of the five emotions from the movie surround the attraction.  At one point, the Anger figure was going to shoot real fire from his head.  This idea was, sadly, dropped due to safety concerns.

Let’s whirl around Pixar Pier on Inside Out Emotional Whirlwind! I’m happy to say that John B. deHaas is along for the ride and after we go on we’ll give you our thoughts on this attraction.  This is a binaural recording so if you have headphones, put them on now as we ride Inside Out Emotional Whirlwind at Disney California Adventure!
