Disney's California Adventure > Paradise Pier

California Screamin' [Guest must transfer to ride system.] [This ride has health restrictions.] [Service dogs may not join guest on this ride.]

Enter through the standard queue or through the FastPass line. At the point where these two lines join, you will pass through the marked gate. Contact a cast member for boarding instructions.

Every green coaster train is equipped with a special transfer seat, making transferring from a wheel chair very simple.

Golden Zephyr [Guest must transfer to ride system.] [Service dogs may not join guest on this ride.]

Enter through the standard queue to the marked gate, then use the elevator to reach the upper loading platform. A cast member will direct you to the appropriate ride vehicle. The transfer can be a bit awkward.

Jumpin' Jellyfish [Guest must transfer to ride system.] [Service dogs may not join guest on this ride.]

Enter the attraction through the standard queue. 

King Triton's Carousel [Guest may remain in wheelchair.]

Look for the marked gate near the ride operator. Do not go into the main queue past the ride operators control panel. 

Wheelchairs can transfer to the Carousel via a ramp and platform. One of the bench seats raise, allowing you to back a chair in. Chair tiedowns are available if desired, though they really aren't required if you have decent brakes. Guests using ECVs will need to transfer to a standard wheelchair.

Maliboomer [Guest must transfer to ride system.] [Service dogs may not join guest on this ride.]

Enter the attraction through the standard queue. A cast member will direct you for boarding. You may want to avoid this ride if you are claustrophobic because of the scream shield.

Mulholland Madness [Guest must transfer to ride system.] [This ride has health restrictions.] [Service dogs may not join guest on this ride.]

When this ride was in operation, there were several logistical problems. Once it reopens, we will reevaluate its accessibility and provide updated information. 

Orange Stinger [Guest must transfer to ride system.] [Service dogs may not join guest on this ride.]

The queue is accessible to the stairs. Use the elevator to the right to reach the loading platform.

S.S. rustworthy [Guest may remain in wheelchair.]

About half of the attraction area is accessible to wheelchairs. The ground is covered in a thick cork-like material that can be difficult to move wheelchairs through.

Sun Wheel [Guest may remain in wheelchair.] [Service dogs may not join guest on this ride.]

The gondolas have a capacity of 3 + a wheelchair, rather than the normal 6. The fixed gondolas are relatively sedate and service animals can accompany you.


The wheelchair takes up a lot of space in the gondola.

The free moving ones however, move quite a bit. Taking a wheelchair on one of these is not recommended. Though you can take your chair with you, you will be much better off transferring to a regular seat. Service animals are not permitted on the moving gondolas.

Boardwalk Games [Guest may remain in wheelchair.]

All of the games are accessible. The Dolphin Derby has one position where the seat can be removed, allowing a wheelchair to reach the controls.
