    "Toy Story Mania" to me seems like a cop out way to milk a film into an attraction. And it also doesn't really describe what it is you're riding. What does "Mania" mean? Is it a roller coaster? Is it a dark ride? Is it a new show? It's incredibly vague.

    "Toy Story Midway Mania" sounds like an effort to make a ride with an actual theme while using said characters. Using "midway" is just an extra touch to allow it to fit in a lot better into its environment as well because it really is out of place in Disney's Hollywood Studios.



    And on a tangent, I was never a fan of the 2D illustrations of the Toy Story characters.

    The sign looks great! Actually, it was lit up in that picture, at least the outside of it was. The "Midway Mania!" letters did not look to be lit yet. It might have been off by night time, but who knows. I am sure a nighttime pic will show up very soon!

    Re: Toy Story Midway Mania!!!! The Sign is up!!!!

    I like the color choices. The blue really pops. The whole area's look is looking excellent.

    The PP concept art shows the mickey ears gone and a beautiful sun in the center area. It looks like it will have chasing lights. Will the words Paridise Pier really be on the coaster or was that just for the concept art sake.

    I was just wondering if the words "Paridise Pier" were really going to be that big. I am wondering if it will be too "in your face". I mean, typically, the land names are subtle.

    It's a pier. Such names did appear on the sides of coasters.
