  • Annual report, other clues say Toy Story is next big ride..-Orlando Sentinel, 1/19/07

    Toy Story Mania, Midway Mania, Toy Story's Midway Mania -- whatever the name of Disney-MGM Studios' next big ride, Walt Disney World may be having trouble containing details long enough to hold a big announcement scheduled for next week.

    Even Disney World's parent company, the Walt Disney Co., may be leaking details. Wednesday night the corporation posted the glossy version of its annual report on the Internet, and it included an unidentified artist's rendering of a ride called "Toy Story Mania."....

    But the Disney-MGM Studios ride under construction has been a secret venture that Disney officials have never publicly acknowledged, and on Thursday no one at Disney was willing to confirm or deny the picture's relevance.

    They pointed to Walt Disney Co. CEO Robert Iger's letter to shareholders in the annual report. He wrote, "What you are about to see is conceptual artwork of projects we are building, developing or still just dreaming about. Some will be open soon, some may never be built."

    Other pictures in the report included renderings of a possible theme park and possible rides in other parks.

    "And if any of the blue-sky concepts that are shown in the annual report do become reality," said California-based spokesman Donn Walker, "we will let you know at the appropriate time."

    Strange. We see constructions walls in Paradise Pier. We know it's being built. Yet, they're talking about WDW's version. Hmmm, our version in California is still closeted.

      Scott Powers is based in Orlando, Florida.

      The major media event is being held next week in Florida, January 24th thru the 26th.

      It is expected that the attraction will be announced at that event, and will state that the attraction will be built both at WDW and at DCA.

      I also presume that the refurb walls will get new signage when that announcement is made. That is what happened with the Sub Lagoon, you had the blue walls and generic signs until they officially annonced the attraction. That morning, the walls were painted with the Finding Nemo stuff, even though the press conference was held at Noon. I had the photos online before I went to the event at Noon
