Description And Comments
First, a zephyr is a term often associated with blimps. On this attraction, the zephyrs look like open-cockpit rockets. In any event, each zephyr holds about a dozen guests and spins around a central axis with enough centrifugal force to lay the zephyr partially on its side. As it turns out, the Golden Zephyrs are very touchy, as zephyrs go: they can't fly in a wind exceeding about 5 mph. Needless to say, the attraction is shut down much of the time.
A colorful, beautiful attraction, it is another slow-loading cycle ride. Go during the first hour and a half the park is open or be prepared for a long wait.
This chart shows you roughly how long you'll wait for Golden Zephyr when you visit on a day with a given Disney California Adventure Crowd Level. The blue bars represent the average "peak" wait time (that is, how long the line will at its busiest). The bottom and top black lines represent the range of peak wait times to expect (for you fellow nerds out there: it's the 5th percentile and 95th percentile of peak wait times). Please note that these are estimates, and for a better forecast for your travel dates, see Golden Zephyr Wait Times.
Totally redundant; can't operate on breezy days
