Mickey's Fun in the Sun

From the D23 website:

You don't see something like this every day! Workers attach our beloved goodwill ambassador's face to Mickey's Fun Wheel. Opening early May, Mickey's Fun Wheel (previously known as the Sun Wheel) is the 150-foot-diameter Ferris wheel inspired by Coney Island's famous "Wonder Wheel." Located on the Paradise Pier boardwalk, Mickey's Fun Wheel sits high above the water's edge and is dominated by the smiling face of its namesake, Mickey Mouse. Though the attraction itself has not changed (Guests can still choose between boarding a standard or swinging gondola), the gondolas present colorful images of the Fab Five: Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Goofy, Donald and Pluto. At the entrance to the queue, Guests are now greeted by a smaller version of the image on the wheel.
