Fun Find Friday


April 29, 2011

Location: Pixar Place, Disney's Hollywood Studios

Most people that have visited Toy Story Midway Mania would recognize the picture above. It's of the building directly across the way above the entrance to the Buzz and Woody meet and greet. However, there is a story connected to this board. I know what you're thinking: "Obviously a reference to the famous song from the film." True, but let's look at this a little closer.

While waiting to retrieve your Fastpasses for Toy Story Midway Mania take a look to your right to find the door pictured on the left hand side. It's just kind of sitting there and seems pretty insignificant. However, if you look at the door a little more closely you will realize that there is actually a sign "taped" to the window.

The sign shows us that this is the Command Post for the Green Army Men found in all three Toy Story films. As seen in the original 1995 Toy Story film, the Green Army Men have a very important mission for the other toys. They are the eyes and ears in other parts of the house so toys in Andy's room know what's going on in other parts of the house.

However, little did we know that there sole purpose isn't to just carry baby monitors around, but they have more ways to communicate with one another.

In the above picture we can see what Plan A and Plan B are. The Green Army Men use a Signal Corps Communicator (aka, Mr. Spell) to communicate with one another. However, some times that plan may fail, and if that's the case, there is Plan B. Plan B allows the Green Army Men to use a Top Secret Message Decoder (aka a Scrabble game board) to share information with one another. This time around, the mission is quite simple, "You've Got a Friend in Me."

So next time while in Pixar Place, take a look at Plan A (near the store opposite of the Fastpass machines) and Plan B (across from the entrance to Toy Story Midway Mania.

Until next time, at ease soldiers!
