We’ve Ranked the Attractions at Hollywood Studios, and Here They Are!

Toy Story Mania

1. Toy Story Mania!

This fun family attraction is another one with a story to it. In Toy Story Mania!, Andy has a new game called Toy Story Midway Mania!, and all the toys are waiting for Andy to leave so that they can open the game, set it up and begin playing against each other. We are invited to join them. Once Andy leaves his room, the toys get everything set up, and we are shrunk to toy size and join the rest of the beloved Toy Storycharacters for a fun competition inside a virtual world of carnival games.Toy Story Mania!is so popular that you’ll want to reserve a FastPass+ time for your chance to have a rootin’-tootin’ good time with Woody, Buzz and all the gang. If you can’t get a FastPass+ time (they book up quickly), you will need to access the attraction via the stand-by queue, but don’t despair! The stand-by queue for Toy Story Mania!is one of the most fun and detailed queues in all of the Disney World Resort. From the moment Guests enter the attraction, they are “shrunk” down to toy size. The proportions of props in the queue will make a person who is 5’6” tall feel about 14 inches tall. Check out the ViewMaster reels that measure almost four feet in diameter. Tinkertoy connectors in the queue measure 24 inches across. You’ll also see a giant Etch-a-Sketch, giant crayons and a giant Lincoln log house before making your way to the ride vehicles. Once you are at the loading area, you’ll board 20thcentury-inspired carnival ride trams. They twist and turn along the tracks to land you right in front of your game screen. Two ride vehicles are deployed at one time, meaning that a party of up to 8 Guests can enjoy the attraction at the same time.

Test your skills in five fun virtual carnival games using spring-action shooters and compete to see who wins the most points. Game one is called “Hamm and Eggs,” and your goal is to knock down barnyard animals with hard-boiled eggs. Upon completion of that game, your ride vehicle moves to another game screen, where you’ll play Game 2—“Rex and Trixie’s Dino Darts”—during which you’ll use virtual darts to pop balloons, all in front of a fiery volcano. At Game 3—“Green Army Men Shoot Camp”—you’ll toss baseballs to break plates at an army men firing range. Different plates have different point values, so aim for those with the highest points! After destroying as many plates as possible, try your virtual hand at tossing rings onto the Green Alien Men in Game 4—“Buzz’s Flying Tossers.” The last game in the attraction, Game 5, is called “Woody’s Rootin’ Tootin’ Shootin’ Gallery,” and you’ll need to be a sharp shooter as you launch darts at mine carts that roll off the track right in front of you! After the games, scores are tallied for your ride vehicle—see who wins bragging rights for the rest of the day! FastPass+ service is available and an absolute must for this attraction—it’s so much fun!!

Don’t miss three new attractions coming to Disney’s Hollywood Studios! Toy Story Land opens soon and includes the Slinky Dog Dash and Alien Swirling Saucers—be one of the first to experience these new Toy Story-themed rides! Also coming to Hollywood Studios is Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway, set to open sometime in 2019. This “2 1/2-D” experience will replace the Great Movie Ride, which closed in late summer of 2017. Don’t miss any part of the fun!
