    Smile Toy Story Midway Mania Tips and Tricks

    OK- I rode this for the first time today, and it is instantly one of my favorites. I figured I'd start a thread like this since there was one for BLAB. What tips and tricks do you use on the ride to get more points? I got 73K my first try.

    Remember that you do not have to pull the string hard, you can pull it softly and it works just fine.

    So it isn't a pressure sensitive thing? The projectile comes out at the same velocity no matter how hard you pull?

    That is VERY helpful to know indeed. Thanks for that one.

    Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter

    Make sure you pull the string all the way back before releasing.

    It doesn't matter how hard you pull, the objects all come out at the same speed. Just don't pull too hard, I don't know how long the strings will last!

    I remember during CM previews on Sunday there was at least three sets of shooters that were covered. We assumed it was from the strings being broken already, even in previews!

    When shooting fast (last scene), I put the shooter-ball between my middle and ring finger, and then do the same with the other hand. It takes less effort to pull, and doesn't cramp your hand.

    Don't worry about the bat in the last scene. Alternate between the two carts on your side and you'll get 1000, 2000 and 5000 point targets. The shoot...a lot and you'll get up to 2000 points on the last target.

    Or you can try to alternate among 3 mine carts, after you got the 2 carts down.

    Always aim for high value targets... I focused on 500+ mostly and I achieved a score of 228,500 because of that. If you have any spare time, shoot a couple of 100's. Every little bit helps.

    Hit the 5000's on the Ring Toss.

    Me and my friend found out pulling the string up and down is just as quick. All depends on your preference.

    Re: Toy Story Midway Mania Tips and Tricks

    Is there a trick to lining up for this ride at the park opening? We went last Wednesday and were waiting at the rope in DCA before 10am. They opened the park and everyone went running. We walked and arrived when we arrived and got in line. There was an irate guest behind us complaining to the CM that there had been 2 lines and she kept calling one of them imaginary.

    The CM was explaining something about them taking a group of people at 9:45 and that is line 1. Everyone else is in line 2. I couldn't understand what they were talking about but I figured someone here might know.

    thanks for any info! I don't really care so much for ourselves bc we can go anytime but we have family coming in a few weeks and we'd like to know what we're doing for their sake. lol
