This audience-involved gameshow left Hollywood Studios in mid-2006 to make room for a Toy Story Mania, which will be a 3-D experience similar in some respects to Buzz Lightyear Space Ranger Spin at MK. It was an exhilirating experience while it lasted, but adios!
This is another one that I wish were longer! I regret not having experienced this attraction before, but now that I have, I will make it a point to visit it whenever I'm at MGM. It's an exact replica of the real show, minus the money prizes, but hey you can win cool stuff anyway, including a Disney cruise!! I think the hosts do a great job, but one in particular (Michael) is top notch. The guy I saw after him was dull in comparison, no offense. I will keep going back and hopefully make it into the hot seat!
This is by far my favorite thing to do at Disney World. I have made it in the hot seat three times and it is lots of fun. I have found no problem with getting a seat, often you can go the the person at the Fast Pass kiosks and get one for a show starting in a few minutes. It is always fun trying to get in the hot seat or even beat your friends. My advice to try to get in the hot seat is as soon as you know the answer start tapping that butten as fast as possible and keep tapping till you see that it is pressed. You wont get in if you just leisurely press the button after they light up. It is great fun and amasingly hard once you get up there, I would call it a must see!
Disney has done a fantastic job recreating the Who Wants to be a Millionaire set. The host we saw was charming and clever. The atmosphere is electric - frequent applause, loud cheering. This (and the interactive element of pushing the answer buttons) kept the kids engaged and amused.
In both games, my wife and I answered correctly on each question and pressed the button IMMEDIATELY after the lights lit, but we never appeared in the Top Ten Players List. Apparently, it's tough to get in the Hot Seat.
