Paradise Pier

Paradise Pier is possibly the most controversial land at a Disney theme park. For some, the theme of a turn-of-the-century boardwalk amusement park flies in the face of Walt Disney's stated ideals when creating Disneyland. But most visitors don't care about such questions so long as they have fun, and Paradise Pier has the most rides of any land at the park. The faux-"woody" California Screamin' roller coaster moves into the giant Mickey's Fun Wheel ferris wheel, and then there is a large kiddy-ride section at the other end.
