|Toy Story Mania! Joins Growing
Treasure Chest of Pixar-themed Attractions at Disney Parks on Both
LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- It's a Pixar palooza at Disney Parks! In
family-friendly attractions and immersive experiences on both coasts
of the United States, guests can do it all -- find Nemo, zap Zurg
and meddle with Monsters.
But the fun doesn't stop there. Coming this summer to Walt Disney
World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Fla., and Disneyland Resort
in Anaheim, Calif., is a whole new interactive adventure: Toy Story
Celebrating Disney-Pixar classics "Toy Story" and "Toy Story 2,"
this new ride-game experience combines delightful film characters
with personality-matching games guests can play. Donning 3-D
glasses, guests shrink to the size of a toy and hop fanciful ride
vehicles following a midway-themed route. At each game booth, they
aim for animated targets using special on-board spring-action
shooters. And since games adapt to the skill level of each player,
beginners and gamers alike have plenty of reasons to ride -- and
play -- again and again.
Toy Story Mania! debuts at Disney's Hollywood Studios in Florida in
late May and at Disney's California Adventure in Anaheim in late
June. It joins these other experiences inspired by favorite
Disney-Pixar characters and films.
|At Walt Disney World Resort:
- Monsters, Inc. Laugh Floor
-- Guests find the power of laughter in an engaging and
interactive adventure inspired by "Monsters, Inc." as they match
wits with the one-eyed hero Mike Wazowski and his friends. As
Monster-of-Ceremonies, Mike recruits comedian wanna-bes whose
humor delights audiences at a 400-seat theater in Magic Kingdom.
- Finding Nemo-The Musical
-- The undersea world that charmed audiences in "Finding Nemo"
comes to life in a musical stage show at Disney's Animal
Kingdom. The 30-minute Broadway-style production immerses guests
in the story of Marlin and Nemo, an overprotective clownfish
father and his curious son, with imaginative puppetry, dazzling
special effects and an original musical score.
- The Seas with Nemo & Friends
-- This whimsical and visually stunning attraction at Epcot
picks up where the film "Finding Nemo" left off. Riding aboard "clamobiles"
in a colorful coral reef setting, guests meet Mr. Ray and learn
that Nemo has wandered off. The journey continues as Dory,
Bruce, Marlin, Squirt and Crush help with the search. These
deep-sea friends inhabit a variety of vibrant vignettes,
including a huge aquarium that contains more than 65 species of
Party Bash -- This high-energy extravaganza at Disney's
Hollywood Studios cranks the music and excitement to the max,

ever -- a non-stop musical block party that doubles as a
fun-filled interactive street spectacular. Featuring characters
from "Toy Story," "A Bug's Life," "Monster's, Inc." and "The
Incredibles," "Block Party Bash" combines dancers, acrobats,
stilt performers and a caravan of electric scooters to fill the
performance area with awe-inspiring visual and sound sensations.
- Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage
-- Guests embark on an underwater expedition where they
discover Nemo and his finned friends from "Finding Nemo." Thanks
to cutting-edge imaging technology, characters such as Dory,
Marlin, Crush, Bruce and, of course, Nemo, come to life before
guests' eyes in a brilliantly colored lagoon at Disneyland Park.
- a bug's land -- Designed
especially for kids, this land at Disney's California Adventure
features Flik's Fun Fair, which is full of attractions inspired
by the film "A Bug's Life." Children can experience the world
from a bug's point of view by visiting Flik's Flyers, Francis'
Ladybug Boogie, Heimlich's Chew Chew Train, Princess Dot Puddle
Park, and Tuck and Roll Drive'Em Buggies. Families can then cap
off their adventures with a screening of the 3-D spectacular
"It's Tough to be a Bug."
- Monster's Inc., Mike and
Sulley to the Rescue -- Disney's California Adventure guests
are in for a ride of "monstrous" proportion as they climb aboard
taxis and hit the streets of Monstropolis with Mike, Sulley and
Boo. Along the way they'll encounter the super-sneaky Randall
Boggs, the yellow-suited agents of the Child Detection Agency
and other characters from the film.
- Pixar Play Parade --
Characters from Disney-Pixar films "Toy Story," "A Bug's Life,"
"Monsters, Inc.," "Finding Nemo," "The Incredibles," "Cars" and

playground. This daily spectacle at Disney's California
Adventure is brought to life in giant parade floats, puppetry,
acrobatics and interactive surprises including bubble, fire and
|At both Walt Disney World Resort
and Disneyland Resort:
- Turtle Talk With Crush --
Crush from "Finding Nemo" has made a different kind of screen
debut at Epcot and Disneyland Park -- as a chatting, joking
quipster who engages guests in conversation from his
movie-screen undersea environment. The interactive show is a
breakthrough experience in real-time animation using digital
projection and sophisticated, voice-activated animation.
- It's Tough to be a Bug --
Inside the massive trunk of Disney's Animal Kingdom's Tree of
Life, and at the heart of Disney's California Adventure's "a
bug's land," is "It's Tough to be a Bug," a humorous 3-D film
and special effects show starring Earth's least-known wild
creatures -- and a few familiar faces from "A Bug's Life."
Guests will recognize friendly Flik and the villainous Hopper,
but the rest of the show promises some "stingingly" surprising
- Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger
Spin (WDW) / Buzz Lightyear Astroblasters (DLR) -- Armed
with infrared lasers, guests join forces with Buzz Lightyear to
defend Earth's supply of batteries from the evil Emperor Zurg in
a spinning, brought-to-life spin-off of the movie "Toy Story."
The shoot-'em-up fun at both Magic Kingdom and Disneyland Park
triggers sight and sound gags, while a lighted display inside
toy-spaceship vehicles allows guests to keep score.
