As you know, Toy Story Midway Mania had just reopened from a two-week refurbishment.
Let's see what has changed! First of all, the exterior has not been touched at all:
On the contrary, the interior looks much better, and all has been refurbished: the props, the floor, etc. :
The floor looks brand-new:
The props are great too:
Some pictures of Mr. Potato (that has not changed, fortunately):
Did you notice the name behind Mr. Potato? Yes, it's ANDY!:
The loading/unloading area has received the most important changes:
New gates now open between the cars, so that Cast Members can't pass in that space:
Here's one of the new security gates:
These new gates are similar to the ones used in the family coasters of SeaWorld and Busch gardens, but they really, really slow down the loading and unloading procedures!!
I hope they do something about this, because the wait time was bad before, imagine this fall, when crowds will return!!! (Now it's about 50-75 minutes, and it's extremely low season!).
On a side note, the newest game (with Trixie and Rex now works perfectly, but that was fixed before this refurb, according to some sources.).
To conclude, Toy Story Mania! is still one of the best rides ever!
