Florida Theme Park Accused of Copying

Toy Story Mania and Toy Story Midway Mania are two popular attractions at Walt Disney World Resort’s Disneys Hollywood Studios Park and Disneyland Resort’s Disney California Adventure Park. This interactive 4D ride takes guests through a series of carnival games hosted by the beloved characters from the Toy Story movies. As guests don their 3D glasses, they are immersed in a fun-filled world where they can point and shoot at various game targets using the ride vehicle’s spring-action shooter.

With vibrant colors, catchy music, and engaging gameplay, Toy Story Mania promises a thrilling and interactive adventure that transports guests into the whimsical universe of Toy Story. Disney Park guests love to test their skills alongside Woody, Buzz Lightyear, and the rest of the gang in this immersive attraction that combines the magic of Disney with the nostalgia of the beloved Pixar franchise.

The ride’s two locations are both very successful in their own way. However, now a new third location is attempting to steal their thunder.

‘Toy Box Midway Mania!’

The Central Florida Fair, which takes place in Orlando from February 29 through March 10, is receiving backlash after they allowed a rip-off of Toy Story Midway Mania to appear at the fair. The attraction was renamed “Toy Box Midway Mania” and features a nearly identical color scheme and logo to Disney’s.

Intellectual theft is not something that the Walt Disney Company has ever taken lightly, and there is no doubt that word of this will spread to Disney’s legal team before long.
