We were lucky enough to get to see the brand new Toy Story Mania! attraction at Hollywood Studios (Park #4 of Disney for those of you keeping score). As you weave through the maze of people on the way to the actual ride, the room is decorated with bigger-than-life-size versions of classic toys including Tinkertoys, Lincoln Logs and of course Mr. Potato Head. But if you looked down, we were following the color twists and turns of the Candy Land board (one of Ty's favorites).
The ride itself was pretty awesome as you shot virtual balls at targets in an old fashioned midway accompanied by the characters from Toy Story. Ty got frustrated with the device (you pull a string repeatedly to launch the balls) so he let me do all the work and just shouted out which targets I should hit.
