Tokyo DisneySea opened in 2001 as the second park of the rebranded Tokyo Disney Resort. A few months earlier, the original Disneyland Resort in California had received a second park in the form of Disney’s California Adventure, drawing inevitable comparison. DisneySea, however, was built with nearly four times the budget of its Californian sister, earning the prestigious title of the world’s most expensive theme park at over US $4 billion and making California Adventure all the more embarrassing.
Toy Story Mania! at Tokyo DisneySeaSubmitted by Nick Sim on Monday, September 3, 2012 20:54
Key informationUser rating:
Based on the wildly popular Toy Story film franchise, Toy Story Mania! places guests in the middle of a set of interactive, 3D “midway” style games in which players earn points and compete with fellow riders while encountering characters from the films.
Two copies of the ride currently exist in the United States: one at Disney California Adventure park in California (themed to a Victorian style midway game along the park’s Paradise Pier), and another at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Florida, (located in the park’s Pixar Place). Both are known for their high levels of ridership and popularity.
Tokyo’s version of the ride is located in the park’s American Waterfront in a new area called the Toyville Trolley Park, which bares a resemblance to California Adventure’s Coney Island-style amusement park setting. Guests enter the ride through the open mouth of the 26-foot tall face of Woody, the lead character from the films.
Unlike its Californian counterpart (and in common with the Florida version), Tokyo’s Toy Story Mania! also features Disney’s FASTPASS, a free virtual queuing system meant to alleviate long lines at the attraction, which has proved immensely popular in the United States. The new area and ride are located next to the park’s Tower of Terror attraction.
