The Green Army Man Bootcamp is a recent addition to the Disney’s Hollywood Studios entertainment lineup. It’s an opportunity for kids to learn to march, salute and play some fun, interactive games with the Toy Soldiers from Pixar’s Toy Story. Here’s the details, photos and video:
Sarge leads his troop of 3 Privates into the this whacky bootcamp training environment, which is located at the end of Pixar Place in front of the construction wall at the old Backlot Tour. His troops are named Private Dancer, Private Practice and Private Eyes.
The fun began with a game of “Sarge Says” in which the troops learn to follow military discipline and order. Sarge barks out an order and the troops obey. It’s all done in good fun.
Private Dancer then set up the first of 3 training challenges which included running through the hula hoops, tossing bean bags into a bucket and an orange cone obstacle course. All this is done while Sarge serves up the cadence.
It’s a fun 12 minute show that children will enjoy, but it’s not listed in any Times Guide, app or website. I found it at 10:30am and at 11:30 am the Army Men were doing their basic patrols (meet and greets). I guess I’ll need to spend a day there figuring out another schedule, huh?
Here’s a video of the full experience:
