    Toy Story Dining coming?

    Forgive me if this has been listed somewhere, but I was surfing around, came across the Disney Auditions page, and saw this announcement that makes me think there is a new Charecter dining experience coming to the Disney MGM:

    Disney Audition's is seeking actors to portray the role of Sarge from Toy Story for an exciting, new character dining experience at the Disney-MGM Studios. Full-time, part-time, and substitute positions are available.

    Does anyone have some info about this, it is the first I had heard about it....

    Hadn't heard about it, but it's about time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! MGM is in desperate need of a character meal and WDW can certainly use one more directed towards boys. Looks pretty promising if they are posting for CM's!

    Where would it be? Would they perhaps re-furbish one of the existiting restaurants, or build a new one?

    It would be neat if they built it right next to Al's Toy Barn where the character greeting spot is. The theming is already in place. That's assuming they would build a new one. Or modify Pizza Planet. Any opinions?

    If I were to guess I would say that they are not building a new restaurant. I would figure that they will probably use Hollywood and Vine...that's where the last character meal was held.

    That would be pretty neat. Especially if it is designed to interest boys.

    I was planning to touch on this on the next podcast, but IMHO, the logical choice would be Pizza Planet. Why, Lou? Why??

    Well, my thought is this: The theming is, for the most part, there. Second, I think the food at PP is downright awful. The pizza (remember, I come the NY/NJ area, where pizza rules), is not very good, and I'm usually not very critical of the food at WDW. Also, I think the location is ideal, as it would draw sit-down diners to a corner of the park which is often not all that crowded.

    Also, I think this addresses the "no boys-themed character meals" issue, which had plagued WDW for some time.

    Good point Lou....they could revamp Pizza Planet. It certainly wouldn't hurt them to lose it in it's current status. I'm just thrilled that they are finally listening to those of us who have been asking for a boys themed character meal for years now! I cannot tell you how many times I've filled out a comment card or sent emails regarding this issue.

    ...Just the whole experience would be cool!!!! I love Toy Story and the characters!!!!


    If I remember rightly, I think I went to my first character b'fast at H&V back in 1999?!?! After b'fast, we cut through the 'back streets' to ToT and that was the first ride of the day - straight after eating!!!!!!!!

    Even though I am a girl, I LOVE Toy Story!!!!!!! And think that boys desserve a character b-fast in WDW too. They'd be doing us ALL a favor, lol.

    Just saw this on www.mouseplanet.com



    Beyond Breakfast and Beyond

    It's looking like the Breakfast and Beyond character dining experience at Hollywood & Vine at the Disney-MGM Studios will be delayed a little longer. We're now hearing rumors that the meal will not begin service until the beginning of June. Another rumor that we're starting to hear is that the character meal will take place at both breakfast and lunch, possibly endangering the working name of the meal.

    Reportedly, characters at the meal will include a virtual "Who's Who" of Pixar characters, including Buzz Lightyear, Sarge (of Green Army Men fame) and Mr. Incredible. Of course, none of this is final until they actually start holding the event.
