 The arrival of Disney•Pixar’s Toy Story 3 is celebrated with new Disney’s Hollywood Studios fun

 

There’s been a lot of “buzz” about the new characters making their bow in Disney•Pixar’s Toy Story 3! So we wanted to fnd out which of these new friends are also joining Buzz, Woody and the gang this summer at the Toy Story Mania!™ attraction. Sue Bryan, Senior Show Producer, Director,  Walt Disney Imagineering, gave us the inside 
scoop. “We created a new version of the balloon game,” she told us. “It’s hosted by Rex, the nervous Tyrannosaurus Rex, and his new friend Trixie, the Triceratops who’s as crazy over games as he is.
 
“The game is now called ‘Rex and Trixie’s Dino Darts’ with a great new primeval setting flled with volcanoes and lava balloons. Look for Rex and Trixie to get very excited when you score points.”  You can still spot Woody and Jessie in the prize scene, plus Trixie, Buttercup (a unicorn), Dolly and the lederhosen-clad hedgehog, Mr. Pricklepants. “We’re always keeping our attractions relevant,” Sue added. “I love that we’re helping keep things fresh and new by adding great new friends and fun to join 
some of the most popular characters of all time.”
 
New attraction enhancements coming late May. The movie opens June 18, 2010.
