"You ... are ... a ... TOY!!!"

There is literally nothing in the world that should keep anyone away from a movie theater for the next week.

That's because everyone should go and see Woody and Buzz Lightyear (seen here in a publicity shot from the good folks at Disney) in the "Toy Story"/"Toy Story 2" 3-D double feature that's playing in a limited engagement; the movies opened together last Friday and will be in theaters for just a two-week run. My GF and I caught the double feature over the weekend, and loved every minute of it. Even at $13 apiece for the evening show, the ticket prices were well worth the money we paid.

Now, we'd each seen the original "Toy Story," but not the sequel. Seeing it on the big screen, let alone in 3-D, was a whole new experience, though. In between films, there's a 10-minute intermission in which "Toy Story" trivia questions and behind-the-scenes vignettes are shown on the screen. "Toy Story 2" was just as incredible in 3-D, and again, seeing it in 3-D makes you ask: Why aren't ALL movies in 3-D?!

Even for a Disney World veteran who's seen countless 3-D flicks at the various WDW parks, I was thoroughly impressed with the new "Toy Story" presentation, and I can't recommend it highly enough!
