Attraction Guide | Toy Story Mania

Toy Story Midway Mania is a popular attraction for both kids and kids at heart at Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Disney California Adventure. Become an honorary toy and join some of your favorite characters from the Toy Story films to play a few midway games.


The queue for Toy Story Midway Mania is different at both parks. At Disney’s Hollywood Studios guests enter through the standby or the FastPass+ queue. You are shrunk down to the size of a toy and there are a lot of fun details to look at. This is especially nice if you are in the standby queue and have a long wait! The queue is completely indoors as well so it’s a great place to escape the Florida heat. Along the way you’ll see Mr. Potato Head as a sideshow barker. When you get to the steps this is where the queue separates for wheelchair and ECV users.

In Disney California Adventure there is only one queue since there is no FastPass available and Mr. Potato Head can be found at the beginning. The queue isn’t as detailed but the line moves pretty steadily. The initial part of the line only has umbrellas for shade but you eventually move to a roofed section. This queue is completely wheelchair accessible.

At Disney’s Hollywood Studios you can schedule a FastPass+ time using My Disney Experience 60 days before your vacation if you are staying on Disney property or 30 days in advance if you are a day guest or an Annual Passholder. You can also use the My Disney Experience app on your phone or visit one of the kiosks in the park. Toy Story Midway Mania is still a popular attraction so scheduling at FastPass+ time is highly recommended.

FastPasses are also available at the attraction at Disney California Adventure. The FastPass machines are located across from the attraction.

Toy Story Midway Mania, in Disney California Adventure, is a family attraction located Paradise Pier. Located on the boardwalk, the theme of midway games is a perfect fit. Our family loves to compete and see who can get the best score. I don’t know what it is about the ride- the 4D, the Toy Story Characters, or the friendly competition, but this attraction is a family favorite.

I love this attraction at both parks because it is so easy for wheelchair users to enjoy. The accessible cars are wonderful and even though the ride spins I never feel uncomfortable. Toy Story Mania is a must do for us on every vacation!

Even if your kids are too small to do it on their own, they can have a blast helping mom and dad try to score high on the carnival-style 3D games.   It’s one of those attractions you just want to do over and over again, but with the wait times, you’re lucky to ride on it once.

I could seriously ride this thing about 10 times in a row and still laugh every time and not be sick of it!

Toy Story Mania is one of my favorite rides. The Imagineers got this one right when they commissioned it!
