    And the Matterhorn you could SEE before getting on the ride. SM (and this attraction) you can not tell anything or very little from the outside or where you load about the attraction.

    In short.. I don't think the name needs to convey the style or details of the ride. It's point is to establish recognition and tie-ins to the attraction. And with examples like I given - this isn't the first to do so and precedence I think shows the practice is acceptable

    Ah, well then that's a problem for MK. Not Disneyland.

    Back to the main point, Midway Mania is a better fitting title regardless of which coast the ride is in. It's the same ride! It's the same subject! One just happens to be more appropriately placed.

    From far it looks good with out the "Toy Story" lit up, but from up close it looks weird cause the "toy story" is still visible and it makes it look as though disney cannot afford lights.

    We'll see. They could very much change the whole pre-show between the locations to help establish the ride in its setting. in DHS they have much more room and a large building to set their story in. Just because both rides end up in the same place doesn't mean they need to tell the same story to get there

    This gets a thumbs up!

    Ive been noticing that things in CA have been looking up while things in florida have been looking down. It would be nice if Lasseter and Baxter could give some of there expertise and help out the Florida property too.

    It will probably be shortened unofficially to Midway Mania or to (much worse) the Toy Story Ride by those of us who frequent the park. I guess we'll just have to wait and see. But for sure at least on Micechat I guess its safe to start calling it TSMM now.
    Everyone should just call it "Midway Mania" that is the name of the ride. Everyone already knows it has Toy Story characters.

    Funny thing is that I only call the Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage by its original name: Submarine Voyage or just Subs.

    As for Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters, I call it Buzz Lightyear or Buzz.


    For Toy Story Midway Mania though, Midway Mania seems to roll out of my mouth easier.

    Not surprising that they put that it was inspired by Toy Story. It makes up for a small logo on the sign.

    Ug. So absolutely pointless. When it opens somebody should go pitch a fit because the sign is misleading and Jessie was inside.

    I thought the "inspired by" on attractions was legal nonsense.

    But then Iger bought Pixar.




    Oh well. Pointless it is.
