Yesterday, the DisneyLies.com staff was invited to a special pre-opening view of the new Toy Story Midway Mania attraction, open only to members of the press who were Disneyland Resort annual passholders who were chosen in an online drawing. We took advantage of the opportunity to ride the attraction repeatedly, making note of its subtleties and setting high scores that will be forever etched in the annals of history.
Security was high at the preview. Guests were given special tickets that allowed them to visit the attraction…
…and the tickets contained language that made it very clear that they were nontransferable…
Because we were members of the select elite, we received a number of additional perks, such as preferential seating (in only forward-facing cars) and a complimentary fruit basket for each score in excess of 100,000.
We found the Midway Mania queue to be nicely themed and largely linear, aside from a few turns designed to optimize space usage. Guests were generally either children or former children, and all who did not have a morbid fear of talking toys or implied shrinking seemed to have a great time.
Over the next few days, we will describe more of our visit to this excellent attraction. Please keep your Web browser tuned to this site so that you do not miss anything.
