Earlier today, we told you about a new Star Wars™-themed land that is coming to both Disneyland® Park and Disney’s Hollywood Studios® (Click here for more details). Well, we have more exciting news to share about other new lands, entertainment, and experiences coming soon to the domestic Disney Parks.

Here’s a brief recap of what’s to come:

Toy Story Land at Disney’s Hollywood Studios®

Get ready to head “to infinity and beyond” as you step into the world of one of Disney•Pixar’s most famous films, Toy Story! As you enter Toy Story Land, you’ll be shrunk to the size of Woody and Buddy as you wander through Andy’s oversized toys.

The new land will feature two new rides and an expansion of a guest favorite:

  • A family-friendly roller coaster enjoyed on the back of Slinky Dog.
  • Alien saucer attraction in which the little green aliens take guests around for a spin.
  • Addition of a 3rd track for the current Toy Story Mania® attraction!

Toy Story Mania

Toy Story ManiaStep right up and compete in an interactive “Toy Story” adventure like no other. It’s Toy Story Mania!—a brand-new 4-D attraction inspired by Disney•Pixar’s “Toy Story” films, debuting at Disney’s Hollywood Studios™ in Florida in late May and at Disney’s California Adventure® Park in Anaheim June 17, 2008. It’s one more magical reason for your Clients to visit Disney Parks during The Year of a Million Dreams celebration!

Guests will don 3-D glasses before boarding a carnival tram ride vehicle and zipping off into a world of midway-style games hosted by favorite characters like Woody, Buzz, Rex and Hamm! It’s a high-energy adventure that puts Guests right in the action as their game play triggers fun surprises that provide a fourth dimension of fun.

The carnival tram ride vehicles stop to face a series of game booths — high-tech yet rooted in classic midway games of skill — and Guests aim for 3-D animated targets using their own on-board spring-action shooters. Players pair up and sit side-by-side for a friendly competition that delivers an ever-changing variety of targets and surprises.

As they play, Guests can actually see the “virtual” objects they’ve launched leave their spring-action shooters and hit (or miss) the targets. And thanks to 4-D special effects technology, they may sense objects whirring past them as they pop out of the 3-D scenes. Play is energized by the spirit of the “Toy Story” characters cast in games that best suit their very animated personalities.

Toy Story Mania! raises the bar for interactive ride-game attractions and engages Guests in a whole new way with favorite characters from the “Toy Story” films. The Toy Story Mania! games are designed to be enjoyed by audiences of all ages and skills, from beginners to experienced gamers. And no matter how many times Guests return to ride and play, they can be sure every ride-through will seem different!
