June 18, 2010 my friend and I went to the El Capitan to catch the new Disney • Pixar movie Toy Story 3.
First hearing about a third movie for the franchise and then the quarrel Disney and Pixar had back in 2004, where the two would split and Disney would make sequels to the Pixar movies without any involvement with Pixar creators, I had my doubts about a Toy Story 3. How could Disney make a Toy Story movie without Pixar? After seeing what they had to done to their own animated movie and turning out DVD sequels, I began to get nervous. I started to cringe as to what Disney could only do to a movie with beloved characters that people have grown up with.
But after Disney and Pixar made up, then ditching the storyline of what was already planned for TS3, I was still a little nervous. And I couldn't help but think that Pixar was sort of forced to create another Toy Story movie so that they could still be in control of their characters.
After seeing some of the previews, I was still hesitant on seeing it. I wasn't sure if this would be as good as the other two films. It's like, how could they top the first two.
As it got closer to opening, I started to check the website and ... I don't know... I actually started to get interested. I was not enthusiastic, but thought I would still check it out. And I was glad I did! Toy Story 3 is a GREAT movie! I had a smile on my face throughout the entire movie. The writing, the cast, the story,the pace, it all worked!

After the movie, it was time to head to the Toy Story Fun Zone
Didn't get to do the Ferris wheel
Even though this maze is a simple one, it scared me! Took me a while to find my way out and I ran into a few people in doing so. I almost had to yell out "Marco!"

Of everything I saw, I think I would buy the train
