Ride Overview

Toy Story Mania! opened on May 31, 2008. It was inspired by the Disney-Pixar’s popular Toy Story franchise, one of the most popular movie series that Disney has released. Like the movie Toy Story, this ride is ahead of its time. Toy Story Mania! is one of the most technologically advanced attractions in Disney World right now. Another interesting fact about this attraction, it was the first attraction to be created for both Disney World and Disneyland at the same time. It truly is one of a kind, and a lot of fun to boot.

This attraction is a carnival style ride modeled after midway games. Guests are given 3-D glasses for this ride. Guests will use little popper guns that are attached to the cars to hit targets in each of the mini games. There are 5 mini games in all, as well as one practice round. These mini games are:

  • Pie Throwing Practice Booth (Practice Round)
  • Hamm & Eggs featuring Hamm & Buttercup
  • Rex & Trixie’s Dino Darts 
  • Green Army Men Shoot Camp
  • Buzz Lightyear’s Flying Tossers
  • Woody’s Rootin’ Tootin’ Shootin’ Gallery

Guests will hear the characters explaining the rules and shouting encouragement throughout the game. The car will have a scoreboard on it that will show you how many points you have gotten throughout the ride.

Queue Experience

The queue for Toy Story Mania! is one of the most fun and childlike queues in Walt Disney World. Toy Story Land in itself is an extremely engaging world and the queue is no different. Walking through the queue is equivalent to being transformed into a toy and walking through a child’s room. It is lined with oversized toys, letter blocks, and crayons that are so realistic guests will think they have shrunk and entered Andy’s room.
