Pixar's 'Midway Mania' ride construction set as 'Millionaire' closes at Disney-MGM
Written by Robert Niles
August 19 is the official last day of operation for Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? at Disney-MGM Studios. The interactive game show's been on the block for months now, following both the cancellation of the prime-time version of the show and the shuttering of Anaheim's installation of the attraction.Tweet
Once the show's closed, Disney will start converting the space into a new Pixar-themed dark ride, described in much detail recently by Al Lutz (following a tip from a French website that uncovered a Disney patent application key to the new attraction.) The ride will also debut at Disney's California Adventure, where it will run in Paradise Pier, in a space previously occupied by counter-service restaurants. Look for a late 2008 debut for the rides.
