Toy Story Midway Mania! manages to cram a bunch of things all into one experience. It's a ride as you board cars that move on a track. It's a game because your car will stop at several game stations along its route where you get to shoot stuff, throw rings on things, and play other classic midway style carnival games. And it's all in 3D.

When you get in line you'll be greeted by a huge animatronic Mr. Potato Head character, much like the Buzz Lightyear animatronic character from Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters. Once you work your way through the line you'll grab some 3D glasses (that will fit right over existing glasses) and board your ride vehicle.

The ride vehicles hold 2 people on each side and have two sides. Each person will go their own again which, again, is very similar to Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters. Yank the string to fire virtual projectiles. The faster you yank, the more projectiles you spray out. The games vary a bit so on one you're shooting darts into balloons and on another you might be tossing rings on things.

You have unlimited "ammo" so shoot early, shoot often to rack up the most points. You'll also see a lot of smaller targets, moving targets, and hidden targets that usually yield more points.

It's tons of fun and a very popular ride so expect long lines and long waits. There is a wheelchair accessible vehicle here as well but you'll have to transfer from an ECV to a wheelchair first.
