Toy Story Mania

This attraction, opening in summer of 2008, will attempt to take the interactive target-shooting game seen in the Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters ride in Disneyland and take it to the next level.

With the theme of playing carnival games involving scenes and characters from Toy Story, riders will wear 3-D glasses and shoot at virtual targets while also being able to see the virtual darts they are shooting. Using the latest in technology the games will be able to adjust in difficulty so that first timers and daily visitors will be able to have fun.

History and Trivia - Hide Section
  • At this location: Most recently the space taken up by Toy Story Mania was used by Who Wants to Be a Millionaire - Play It!, a recreation of the once-huge TV game show. Park guests competed to get down to the hot seat where they could win pins and other prizes up to a Disney cruise if they answered all 15 questions. That attraction opened in 2001 and lasted until 2006. Prior to that these soundstages were used two showcase actual movie and TV production tasks (remember, at one point there was an attempt to have the park also be a working movie/TV studio) and at the Walt Diseny Theater you could see film clips of upcoming movies. Movies promoted in this way included The Lion King, Pocahontas, Toy Story, Hunchback of Notre Dame, Evita, George of the Jungle, Flubber, and Armageddon.
