Love the pics there! Looks really nice!!

Question though: Is this in the area that is to the left to ToT, as you face it? As in: a new alley in-between the restrooms and the theater, where the huge wooden gate was (is)?

I don't remember seeing an exact location for it.

Yes.


and to further elaborate they expanded into an old employee parking lot.

Thanks. That then makes sense to me, as I remember seeing all of the trailers and temp buildings when you took the monorail around, and behind ToT.

The exterior queue and surrounding area is very similar to DCA while the interior queue is a more vintage version of DHS's. All wooden toys inside but very much like Andy's bedroom. Following photos courtesy of Deep Disney.

Mr Potato Head is not in the queue but rather has his own private corner

I love love love that the ride's boarding area is the side of Andy's bed and the ride trams enter the show building through going under his bed:

Reminds me of the pages in Hunny Hunt's queue:

The ride is apparently the same. The theme is a bit of a stretch for 1920's but the design is so well executed, I'm very very impressed (but when's the last time tokyo didn't impress.

I've gone pantless!

Looks like they've done a good job re-creating the ambience of the original Luna Park at Coney Island.
