It's no secret that Disney has had some trouble getting guests interested in its various interactive offerings over the years. Though interest in previous offerings like Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom and A Pirate's Adventure: Treasures of the Seven Seas was high when these interactive attractions were initially opened, Disney never really continued promoting them after their debuts, and with low replay-ability for those who have already experienced these unique attractions, they've simply fallen off the radar for most guests.
However, with Disney's latest interactive game effort, the Play Disney Parks app, some real effort is going in to trying to increase awareness and engagement of this new interactive offering. And in the past few weeks, Disney has announced some new features that are now available for guests who download and use this app at Walt Disney World
1. Interactive element now active in Toy Story Mania queue
Guests who are in line for Toy Story Mania attraction inside Toy Story Land can now unlock a special surprise after completing all of the different levels of “Playset Party” a special game where guests progress through a series of mini-games to help assemble the Toy Story Mania! playset.
After completing all the mini-games, guests can bring to life an interactive show effect involving the villainous Stinky Pete, from “Toy Story 2,” is outta his box and joining some favorite pals in the Toy Story Mania! queue. Be on the lookout for The Old Prospector near the end of the queue inside a wild west-style jail cell that Andy has constructed. You can see this new effect in action in the video above.
