Disney's Toy Story Mania opened June 01 to the public!. Inspired by the Disney-Pixar animated film Toy Story, this ride features 3-D technology to help you on your interactive ride through a video game.

You will score points by launching darts at balloons, throwing eggs at barnyard targets, and tossing rings at aliens. Upon arriving at the ride, you will see oversized Green Army men, crayons, barrel of monkeys, and Tinker toys. You will retrieve your 3-D glasses from a stand constructed of Lincoln Logs

Ride Experience:
As you enter the queue area for the ride, you will be entertained by a 5ft tall Mr. Potato Head (voice by Don Rickles), who's jokes are family friendly. Once inside you will board your vehicle for your ride through this carnival like adventure.

Once you are shrunk to toy size (if only by imagination), you will encounter characters from the Toy Story movies, such as Woody, Ham, and Bo Peep. The games are based on the characters, like an egg toss called: Hamm n' Eggs, or Bo Peeps balloon pop. You will also have fun in Woody's shooting gallery.

Just like at a good old fashioned carnival you will have different targets worth different points. You can aim at plates, ducks, trees, etc. and if you hit a water balloon you may even get sprayed with the water. Every person in the vehicle will have their own spring action shooter. You will be able to see the digital projectile coming from your own shooter and hitting the targets. This will help you to know how many targets you have hit on your own. It is never the same experience twice, so you should consider riding this attraction over and over again. I arrived at 9:15 and already there was an hour wait.
