Photo Report: Toy Story Mania’s Third Track

Disney Pixar Toy Story Mania!

A couple months ago, Disney’s Hollywood Studios debuted its third track for Toy Story Midway Mania!  Located right next door inside the usually empty Sound Stage 1, which was used to years ago for the Frozen Summer Fun ice rink and activities, the third track has increased the rides capacity by 50%.  The wait times have largely dipped in numbers and FastPasses are now much easier to reserve right before you visit!  I finally had the chance to see the second loading station and take some photos.  The details are fabulous and honestly, knock the original station out of the park.  As for the ride itself, it is exactly the same and surprising Disney was able to fit all of this inside the single building.  Check out the photos below.

imageThe entrance for the third track is to the left, whereas the original station is to the right, up the stairs.  imageYou enter the new station through Andy’s closet and walk around the gigantic door.imageDon’t forget to look behind you after you enter.  There are plenty of details to see.  You even get a chance to see Andy’s (his mom’s?) cowboy hat, which we all now know as Jessie’s hat! imageAs for the station, it’s pretty much the same.  Two loading areas, only you unload on the same side as loading. imageToy Story Mania third track.imageToy Story Mania third track.imageWe loved the detail of the lights plugged into the wall.  Something that isn’t overly necessary, but adds to much to theming.  imageToy Story Mania third track.Toy Story Mania third track.imageDo you spot Tin Toy?  One of Pixar’s first shorts and also the original idea for the main character of Toy Story.  There is a picture of him as you exit the original station.imageChutes and Ladders, anyone?imageWoody’s meeting agenda is on the wall across from the loading station where Guests stand.imageAnd once you finish the ride, you exit out underneath Andy’s bedside table.
