Over at the Disney MGM Studios, it appears we have seen the last of Mickey Avenue. The street from the end of the Narnia exhibit to the Backlot Tour is completely closed to become a Pixar themed street rumored to be called “Pixar Place”. The street will host the new Toy Story Mania attraction scheduled to open in Spring 2008. The construction walls feature a map of the park saying that Toy Story Mania is coming soon and giving guests directions to go around the wall to get where they want to go. Rumor has it that after the completion of Toy Story Mania, the area will become home to Cars attraction and perhaps a Pixar character stage show. The Block Party Bash parade, starring all Disney-Pixar Characters,Â is slated to debut at the park this spring in an attempt to add more Pixar to the studios.
