Toy Story Mania – New Info

I was browsing for some new Disney happenings, and came across this article by the Orange County Register that talks more about the new Toy Story Mania! attraction opening this summer.  First, let’s talk about the picture on the left.  The anamatronic is called “The Mr. Potato Head Boardwalk Barker”.  It is said to be the most advanced, interactive character at Disney.  Mr. Potato Head will remove parts, talk with, and tell jokes to park guests.  Here’s the storyline.  The toys got into a box of midway games, and set them up, starting a competition.  They have invited all of us to join them.  Up to eight people can ride in one special “toy vehicle”, feeling as though they have been shrunk down to the size of a toy.  The vehicles spin, and each guest gets a spring-action shooter.  You then get to play five carnival games, like “Hamm ‘n’ Eggs” (a ring toss), and “Bo Peep’s Balloon Pop”.  Each experience will be different, and as you hit different targets, different things will occur.  Each game lasts about 31 seconds, and the entire ride lasts about 5 1/2 minutes.
