    What is the difference between the Toy Story ride at MK & the one at Hollywood Studios?

    Hi Karen, 

    While Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin in the Magic Kingdom is very cool, Toy Story Midway Mania at Hollywood Studios is light years better than it. On the virtual video game scale, I liken Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin to Atari from the 80's and Toy Story Midway Mania would be a Playstation 3. Younger kids who are big Buzz Lightyear fans will really enjoy his laser shooting game in the Magic Kingdom. It is definitely fun with brightly colored "scenes" and they will feel like they are battling the Evil Emperor Zurg. That being said, Toy Story Midway Mania is like several games within a game. You'll do a ring toss, dart throwing and much more. The scenes rotate and change. It's very hard to explain, but once you ride it once, you will easily see why the standby line is often 120 + minutes long. It's addictive and super fun.

    If you are wondering what to schedule for a FastPass+ in Hollywood Studios, Toy Story Midway Mania should be at the top of your list.

    Wishing you wonderful vacation,
