My 25 Favorite Disney Things #4

Today, we reveal our #4 pick........and let's get right to it!  

Toy Story Midway Mania!  Yup, that's #4!!!


I fell in love with this attraction in 2010 when we rode for the very first time.  Keep in mine, I had a fairly long stretch after a horrible divorce that I could not afford to go to my favorite place in the world.  As a single Mom, and the income I had, it was not possible for me to think about going.  So, I just suffered through, and Paul, being the wonderful man he is agreed to have a week long stay at Walt Disney World as part of our 10 day belated honeymoon trip.

Much warmer in October 2012 than in February of 2010! And no poncho!

If I remember correctly, we rode on the attraction 3 times the day we were at Hollywood Studios.  It was pouring on that day in early February.  I mean POURING....and not very warm either.  So, we opted to wait in the long line and not do a Fast Pass as it gave us time to get out of the rain, and dry off.  Well, it was about a 45 minute wait, but well worth it!!  We got Fast passes right after we departed the ride, and then we went on again later before we left.  Not too long of a wait.  I kicked Paul's butt in scoring all three time!  
We enjoyed it only once last October, and were given the Fast Pass tickets by our friends Cathy and Bert.  We more than appreciated the gift!  

It's just fun fun fun!!!

Here is what the Walt Disney World Website says about Toy Story Midway Mania!:

Ride and shoot moving targets at this midway-style, 4D shootin’ game starring your favorite Toy Story characters.

A Rootin’, Tootin’, Shootin’ Match


Zip through a virtual, 4D shootin’ gallery of carnival games.
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 3D glasses for the fun to come.
Mr. Potato Head, Boardwalk Barker
Inside the vibrant toy box, meet Mr. Potato Head®, decked out in a 1920s barker outfit as he introduces you to the attraction. With more dialogue than any other Audio-Animatronics figure ever created for a Disney Park, Mr. Potato Head yuks it up big time.
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.
Thrilling Games of Skill
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.
Game 1: Hamm & Eggs
Hamm and Buttercup invite you to knock down both moving and stationary barnyard animal targets using hardboiled eggs.
Game 2: Rex & Trixie’s Dino Darts
Launch darts and pop balloons in front of a bubbling volcano in this game starring Rex and Trixie.
Game 3: Green Army Men Shoot Camp
Toss baseballs to break plates at a green army men firing range.
Game 4: Buzz Lightyear’s Flying Tossers
Buzz Lightyear urges you to toss rings and make them land atop the Little Green Men.
Game 5: 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.
As each game is completed, your Carnival Ride Tram will quickly rotate and slide onto the next game.
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!
Surprises Galore!
Select targets throughout the attraction feature special 4D special effects, like air blasts or water sprays. Don’t be surprised if that 3D balloon you’re aiming for splashes you when you hit it.
Scoring Points
Points pile up when you hit your mark. As any good cowboy or cowgirl knows, harder-to-hit targets are worth more. After each game, your score is posted showing how well you did; after all games are played, your total score is tallied and displayed.

A New Toy Story

As an honorary toy, you’re invited to enter the world of Buzz and Woody. The Toy Story Midway Games Play Set is Andy’s newest game, and the toys have been patiently waiting for him to leave so they can get a crack at it.
Now that he’s not around, they’ve opened the box, set up the game pieces and called for you to join them in the fun.
Preserving the humor and heart of the hit Disney•Pixar movies, Toy Story Mania! continues the exciting adventures of Woody, Buzz Lightyear and the rest of Andy’s eclectic toys.

Ok gang.......there is your #4!!  Join us again tomorrow for #3!!!!
