#How to improve your score on Toy Story Midway Mania# Although there is a video guide here on MW thought I would document each game for easy reference.
# Let's begin with where to sit. I always like to sit so I am in front of the Hen House for Hamm and Eggs. Sit in the far seat on the first car which has green and yellow shooters or the close seat of the second car with red and blue shooters.
#HAMM and EGGS - Start with the 2 pigs and then the cat that pops up behind them. Shoot the fox and hens that run out from the hen house, then any gophers that are standing. Repeat this pattern until the game is over and make sure to get the last 3 gophers worth 1000 points each that pop up at the very end.
#DINO DARTS - Shoot the long balloons that pop out of the volcano. First 1, then 2 and after hitting the 3 balloons shoot the 500 point balloons that erupt from the volcano. 2 meteorites with a single balloon will drop from the upper right and left corners. Pop the balloon on the meteorite 3 times on each side and then shoot the cluster of 1000 point balloon comets that drop from the upper left, then right and left again.
#GREEN ARMY MEN - To unlock this level you need to shoot both 2000 points plates that pop up to the left and right of the mountain. You need to hit them both on the same round. Shoot low on one side and then switch to the other to hit the other plate. The mountain will drop down and a tank will start shooting 5000 point plates at you. 4 2000 point plate will also start popping up from both sides of the mountain. Only shoot 7 of the 2000 point plates. If you shoot all 8 the tank will stop.
#BUZZ LIGHTYEAR - You need to ring all the Little Green Men before any of them pop back up. This takes practice and shooting them in same pattern helps. I use a horseshoe pattern. Start on the left or right at the bottom and go up across the top and back down in a horseshoe pattern and then back up the middle to get the last 2 LGM. If you are successful the robot will open and close. Every ring you get in the opening will score higher points every time the robot opens. You need to get a feel for the timing on this one so you can have rings in the air before the robot opens. When you aren't shooing rings into the robot go for the planets and rockets across the bottom and pay attention for the 5000 point rockets that appear at the top of the screen on both sides.
#WOODY'S SHOOTING GALLERY - Go around in a circle and shoot all the center targets to get all the targets to pop up. Going around in a circle again shoot all the pop up targets without shooting any of the center targets. If you are successful all the targets will pop back up and are worth 1000 and 2000 points. After this round is over and you start moving go for the high point targets and pay attention for the 2000 points that pop up.
#MINE CARS - 2 of the mine cars start moving out before the rest. Shoot these first and then weave back and forth and just keep shooting at all 4 cars. After you get good at this you can send some shots up at the bats while you are weaving back and forth.
#LAST BONUS TARGET - Just shoot as fast as you can to advance the target. Did you know that this target actually goes to 5000 points? Our very own BCC is the only person I know of that has been able to do this.
#In closing it's helpful to know how to unlock the different games. Have a friend ride with you and help unlock the games. The #1 secret to getting a better score on TSMM is practice, #2 secret is to slow down. You only need to shoot fast for the final bonus target. To get a lot of practice the best time to ride is about an hour before DCA closes. You can easily get 2 or 3 rides, sometimes 4. Good luck and have fun!!

unForecast Crowd Prediction: With the weather warming up this week, expect the parks to be a little busier than normal in February. Also, many schools have some holidays coming up (Washington's Birthday, Lincoln's Birthday, Presidents Day), so it may be crowded on the next Mondays and Fridays in the next couple weeks. For this week, expect it to be moderately quiet with CIs in the 60s for Disneyland Park and CIs in the 50s for DCA. With Valentine's Day on Saturday, expect the restaurants resort wide to be very busy.
