    Midway Mania themed to Toy Story. It is going to be like Buzz Lightyear meets Spiderman at IOA. I think it is supposed to open in 2008.

    Over where strips dips and chips used to be they are constructing the Midway mania attraction. Someone else can give it a timeline, since I don't know about it very well.
    My campus elevator smells like burned hair and won't drop faster than the pull of gravity, no matter how much I scream.

    Pretty much they are still in the prep phase, removing the stufff that has to go, and working on the plot, such as moving dirt, and adding supply lines (such as electricity). Once that is done, they will pour the concrete for the floor and start building the building structure. This should be finished by early summer of 2007. At which time, they will start to actually build the attraction, install the track and sets, etc.....

    The ride is supposed to open to guests in spring/summer of 2008, though you might have some soft openings and previews in early 2008, depending on how the installation and testing goes.

    Al Lutz wrote about the attraction in detail a couple of months ago

    Obviously timed to coincide with my Spring 2008 trip to the US. See, and here I was thinking I was one of several billion visitors, but they really do care!

    That's right. As part of the Year of a Million Dreams... campaign, some guests get Dream Fastpasses, others get DreamEars. Loomis, however, won the big one. The construction of a new DCA Attraction.
