    I was wondering if anyone had a video of the Green Army Men directing guests to Toy Story Midway Mania. Thanks!

    If no one is responding then I guess no one has video of it... That's just my thought.

    Re: Left! Right! Left! to Toy Story Midway Mania!

    While I love the idea of the Green Men out there, it is in the wrong place. People rush off the tram and want to get through the security line. They don't feel like stopping to watch the performance. This stage needs to be on the other side of Security. Somehow I feel like I have arrived at Disneyland once I get through security and slow down a bit.

    I watched others the last time I was there and the same was happening. Few were taking the time to watch the show.

    ^ Well, if guests walk through secruity, get in line, buy tix to Disneyland park, then see the GAM in the Main Entry Plaza, I think more guest concerns would occur.

    Isn't the point of this to let guests know which park TSMM is in... then they can decide which park ticket option they want...

    I understand the concern. And I think the Green Men are a very creative way to communicate that, but you have to stand and watch for a while to get that message. So I would put it on the other side of the security gates. It would attract a crowd and then get the message. Right now people are just hurrying past it.

    True, but in looking at everything... there is no place to really effectively place them that would be visible before a ticket purchase and will not cause a backup at the security checkpoints.

    Sorry... I didn't stick around long enough to take a snapshot. Basically the leader is doing his best R Lee Ermey impression... which today wasn't worth sticking around to see much less videotape.

    If you go back and it's worth watching videotape it..

    You know -- if you head over to the MicePod forum and my post HERE, I have a link to a lovely video of the Green Army Men...

    Just a suggestion.
