Toy Story Mania!

There is a new ride that can be found in Florida's and in California's Disney Parks. It is called "Toy Story Mania!". I am very excited to go on this ride (and take lots of pictures for you to see)!

Here is the link to the official website. You can even build your own version of the ride!

Here is a description of the ride taken from the Disneyland website:

"Step right up and compete in an interactive "Toy Story" adventure like no other. It's Toy Story Mania!— a brand new attraction inspired by Disney•Pixar’s “Toy Story” films.

Grab some 3-D glasses, board your ride vehicle and zip off into a 4-D world of exciting, midway-style games.

Highlights include the following:

  • Play games hosted by favorite Characters including Woody, Buzz, Rex and Hamm!
  • Use your spring-action shooter to launch darts at balloons, rings at aliens, eggs at barnyard targets and more!
  • Certain targets trigger surprise reactions and special effects.
  • Compete for the high score.
  • It's never the same experience twice."
So, there ya go. It is completely interactive, 3D, and filled with those great, familiar Toy Story characters.

Here are some videos and interviews (featuring John Lasseter and Bob Iger!) about the new ride that opened yesterday:
