Toy Story Midway Mania! (marketed as Toy Story Mania!) is an interactive theme park attraction at Disney's Hollywood Studios and Disney California Adventure theme parks.

Designed by Walt Disney Imagineering, it is based on the Disney/Pixar Toy Story Movies and was first unveiled during a press conference at Walt Disney World in January 2007. The Florida version opened officially on May 31, 2008, while the California version officially opened on June 17, 2008. A new version of the attraction was constructed at Tokyo DisneySea and opened on July 9, 2012 and is located at American Waterfront.


Premise

The ride features characters from the Toy Story movies hosting carnival rides. The ride has a giant animatronic Mr. Potato Head who entertains the people waiting in line.

Woody, Jessie, Bo Peep, Bullseye and Mr. Potato Head appeared at the opening ceremony in May 31, 2008. Buzz Lightyear was unable to appear in person with them because he was spending a year in space.

On May 21, 2010, a few weeks before the theatrical release of Toy Story 3, Trixie and Buttercup, two new Toy Story characters from Toy Story 3, were added.

  • Step inside Andy’s room and wind your way through a toy treasure chest of classic playthings. Pass a Candyland® game box, Viewmaster® discs, crayon drawings and a Scrabble board before picking up a pair of special 3-D glasses for the fun to come.
  • Inside the vibrant toy box, meet Mr. Potato Head®, decked out in a 1920s barker outfit as he introduces you to the attraction.
  • Climb aboard an early 20th-century-inspired Carnival Ride Tram and grab your spring-action shooter. With 3D glasses on, glide into the Toy Story Midway Games Play Set and take aim at stationary and moving 3D objects in a variety of fast-paced games.
  • Toy Story Mania! invites you to play 5 unique, virtual carnival games in 3D alongside the loveable cast of characters from the Disney•Pixar Toy Story films. These games are:
    • Hamm & Eggs - Hamm and Buttercup invite you to knock down both moving and stationary barnyard animal targets using hardboiled eggs.
    • Rex & Trixie’s Dino Darts - Launch darts and pop balloons in front of a bubbling volcano in this game starring Rex and Trixie.
    • Green Army Men Shoot Camp - Toss baseballs to break plates at a green army men firing range.
    • Buzz Lightyear’s Flying Tossers - Buzz Lightyear urges you to toss rings and make them land atop the Little Green Men.
    • Woody’s Rootin’ Tootin’ Shootin’ Gallery - Shoot suction-cup-tipped darts at a variety of mine-cart targets in this game inspired by the “Woody’s Roundup” television show.
  • Compete with friends for the highest score or try to achieve a new personal best! But remember, whether you’re an expert or a beginner, everyone’s a winner!

Story

In the two American versions, the attraction is presented as taking place in Andy's later Bonnie's Bedroom in a large Midway Mania playset that the toys decided to set up to play themselves.

Tokyo DisneySea's version, located in American Waterfront, is set in a new subarea of the land: Toyville Trolley Park, a Coney Island inspired setting housing some mini-games in the shops in addition to the attraction itself.

Concept

Park guests wear 3-D glasses (Carnival Games Goggles) aboard spinning vehicles that travel through virtual environments based on classic carnival midway games. Ride vehicles seat up to four in back-to-back pairs.

Mini-games

The attraction features five mini-games after a practice round, each of which includes at least one "easter egg" that can trigger additional targets or gameplay changes. Toy Story characters including Woody, Hamm, Buzz Lightyear and Bo Peep appear during the attraction's different games. These games include:

Each guest's score is recorded by an onboard display screen as points are acquired with individual toy cannons firing simulated projectiles at virtual targets.

Similar technology has been used in Disney attractions such as Pirates of the Caribbean: Battle for Buccaneer Gold at DisneyQuest and several Buzz Lightyear attractions. According to Disney, it is the first attraction created simultaneously by Walt Disney Imagineering for two theme parks.

The line at all the three parks features a large Mr. Potato Head Audio-Animatronic figure that interacts with guests through pre-recorded snippets of dialogue performed by comedian Don Rickles who voiced the character in the Toy Story films. The sophisticated figure identifies people in the audience, sings and tells jokes. He is one of the only AAs in the world to remove and replace his own working parts.

Former Mini-Games

Only five mini-games can be used at a time at Toy Story Mania. The following games have been featured as part of Toy Story Mania in the past, but have since been replaced:

  • Bo Peep's Baaa-loon Pop - dart throw game hosted by Bo Peep and Wheezy; replaced May 21, 2010, with "Rex and Trixie's Dino Darts".

Trivia

  • Although Toy Story Mania is set after Toy Story 2 and Toy Story 3, the wallpaper of Andy's room in Toy Story is seen in the ride.
  • Stinky Pete from Toy Story 2 is seen on the ride, despite the fact he is not part of Andy's toys or Bonnie's toys.
  • Bonnie's toys were added to the ride before the release of Toy Story 3. This may have revealed spoilers for the end of the film.
  • Toy Story Mania, guests get to experience what life is like from a toy's perspective by coming into contact with the ViewMaster reels nearly four feet in diameter and the Tinkertoy connectors that are two feet across. Andy's Room will make a 5'6" person feel about 14 inches tall.
