Toy Story Midway Mania Update

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

Here are some picture updates of the new Toy Story Midway Mania attraction at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, officially opening on May 31, 2008:

The new Hollywood Studios map with the Toy Story Midway Mania promotional art on the cover debuted last weekend. (Despite what some other websites argued about the image being concept art)

Despite the signage that says Pixar Studios, the new area is being called Pixar Place officially.

The back of the map also received a change, switching to promote a new water resistant camera and Voyage of the Little Mermaid.

The attraction has been operating Fastpass for about a week now, certainly not without some issues to be resolved.

Here is a look at the loading area from the special handicap tram loading area.

A sign on a chain restricting access to a path near the handicap loading area. Apparently, toys run the studio.

The attraction is already listed on the tip board at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, listing a 45 minute wait time due to the problematic Fastpass system for a ride of this style and layout.

All of the black directional signs around the park have the new attraction listed, while the red signs await the addition of the similar markings using the yellow lettering.

WDW News Today will continue to inform you on the operation and status of Toy Story Midway Mania as it begins it’s first official day of operation at Disney’s Hollywood Studios tomorrow.
