The theme of this Disney World Toy Story Mania game is animals on a farm, and the most important point to focus on is the fence and hen house near the bottom left corner of the screen.

Shoot the fox in that corner, and it will release two hens, each worth more points than any other target during this game. A cat worth 1000 points will also pop up right behind the hen house at certain moments that are worth hitting. Repeatedly shoot these targets, and you can score above 50,000 points!

If you’re looking for the top Toy Story Mania secrets, you’re in luck. Timing is key in this ring toss game. The area to focus on is the aliens in the rocket. When you hit the aliens, they go down into the rocket briefly.

The key is to toss rings on all of them quickly enough that they all go down at once. Once you do, the rocket reveals a robot. The robot will open its mouth in different intervals—shoot into the mouth of the robot. Each time the robot opens, it is worth more points, upwards of 5000 points for each hoop if done quickly enough.
