Toy Story Midway Mania

With the recent anouncment of a Toy Story Land coming to Hollywood Studios and Toy Story 4, it seems fitting to do a post on the popular Toy Story Midway Mania attraction in Hollywood Studios.


Toy Story Mania opened seven years ago in Pixar Place. This attraction is a bit difficult to explain. It’s 3D, it’s a video game, and it’s a ride. There is some spinning but it’s not bad at all. It’s very smooth. When you get in your vehicle,there is a pop gun in front of you. To shoot, you pull the string on the back of the gun. Though the gun technically doesn’t shoot anything, as the whole attraction is virtual. You aim it at the targets on the screen and shoot. Some targets are worth more points than others. The gun shoots something different every game. Sometimes it’s pies, sometimes darts, and sometimes you shoot rings around the little green aliens!  It’s a lot like Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin in Magic Kingdom, except this ones targets and lasers are virtual and 3D.




This ride probably has one of the longest lines in all of  Disney World, so definitely Fastpass this one!

Toy Story Mania is a great ride and a definite must do!




Katie’s Top Ten in Magic Kingdom: #4 Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin

Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin is perfect everybody! I think it might be impossible for someone to dislike this ride. Help Buzz defeat Emperor Zurg as you travel through space, shooting your space laser at the targets. Oh, and don’t forget to smile for the camera at the end!

It’s not fast at all, and there is a joystick so you have an option to spin your vehicle. Each target you hit is worth points so try and get a good score at the end.

*Note: The triangle targets are worth more points then the circle targets in Disneyland California.*

This is a popular attraction and the line can be quite long, so either hit it as soon as the park opens or Fastpass it.

This is a great ride. Don’t miss it!
