There are a number of games the players play while strapped into their cart. During each game you earn points. Be careful, because the carts spin quite quickly.
Alien Swirling Saucers
One of the attractions with the shortest height requirement is Alien Swirling Saucers. The height requirement is 32 inches or taller. Typically kids 2 and up. This attraction features those loveable aliens from Pizza Planet. Guests will hop into a spaceship and be swung around slowly, and then quicker and quicker as the ride goes on.
Slinky Dog Dash
One of the most popular rides at Disney World, even with the opening of the Star Wars attractions, Slinky Dog Dash is a thrilling roller coaster ride that has guests climbing, swooping down, and taking quick turns, all in our favourite dog Slink. The sound effects on this attraction are fantastic!!! You hear the slinky making noise the whole way along. This ride also has a height requirement of 38″. This is typically kids 4 and up.
Green Army Men Drum Corps
Directly in front of Alien Swirling Saucers, Army Men will stop and perform their Drum routine for any passer bys. They may even ask you to join in. These may appear to be random and impromptu but they are actually schedules, so check your Times Guide to see when they will be appearing the day of your visit.

The online map does not show any shopping but do not be concerned there are two places you can shop for one of a kind Toy Story merchandise. One is found at the exit of Toy Story Mania. The other is a cart set up across from the entrance of Toy Story Mania. The store inside Toy Story Mania has clothing, toys, apparel, and kitchen ware. The cart outside has more plush toys and action figures. You can find more Toy Story items at the Beverly Sunset Boutique on Sunset Blvd.
For one of the hottest spots at Walt Disney World there’s not too much to do. Which is truly fantastic because it allows you to explore other areas of the park. This area of the park is similar to Pandora at Animal Kingdom. With a couple attractions and a great eatery, you can spend a portion of your day being a kid again amongst Andy’s favourite toys.
