    ANAHEIM, CA, June 17 /CNW/ - Pixar pals, pyro and paratroopers kicked off
opening day for "Toy Story Mania!" in Disney's California Adventure today.
Life-size versions of the classic Green Army Men parachuted over the
Disneyland Resort in celebration of the opening of the interactive attraction
that immerses guests in high-tech, 4D midway games. Buzz Lightyear even made a
galactic appearance from the International Space Station, where he is "on
assignment" for NASA as part of a special Toys in Space program.
    Disney President and CEO Bob Iger and John Lasseter, director of the
popular Disney-Pixar Toy Story films, officially opened the attraction with
help from Woody, Mr. Potato Head, Bo Peep and Buzz.
    "Toy Story Mania!" combines the old-fashioned romance of carnival midway
games with high-tech excitement. Guests wear 3D glasses, "shrink" to the size
of toys and board vehicles that transport them into the zany world of the "Toy
Story" characters. Guests are armed with spring-action shooters and provided
with unlimited virtual flying darts, rings and eggs, so competition is fast
and furious for gamers of all ages. Twists and turns, tosses and pops - so
much interactivity it adds a 4th dimension of fun!
    "Toy Story Mania!" opens today and is just one of many special
attractions and events happening at the Disneyland Resort during the Year of A
Million Dreams celebration at Disney Parks.
