Last year DisneyEveryDay.com brought you the story of a special Disneyphile named BCC who is an expert at Toy Story Midway Mania. He event went so far as to make a video of Toy Story Midway Mania Ride Cheats – The Secret to Scoring Over 500,000, which I posted for all you Disney Fans out there. He has recently made a new and improved video, with commentary, to help you sharpen your TSMM skills.
Curious as to who this Toy Story Midway Mania Guru is? Here’s BCC’s story in his own words…
Greetings, this is BCC! Allow me to introduce myself! I am one of the top ranking Midway Mania players at Disney’s California Adventure and a Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters veteran. It is similar to Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin at the Magic Kingdom except that the guns are not mounted onto the vehicle. Now, I am a regular at Toy Story Midway Mania, but that’s only one aspect of my life.
I was born in Toronto, Ontario, Canada and eventually moved down to the states after I graduated from 8th grade. The move was very hard because I was essentially leaving behind everything I’d built my life on. It was all worth it though, thanks to the opportunities that have been presented to me and, of course, Disneyland. I’ve wanted to work at a Disney Park ever since my parents took me to Walt Disney World for the first time and I’m currently in the process of pursuing that dream. I have applied twice at the Disneyland Resort and I’m still waiting on a callback. In the mean time, I spend my free time playing baseball on my school’s baseball team, playing guitar and a little bit of piano, fixing up my computers whenever they break down, and playing computer games. Books, I am not a fan of. Sorry bookworms.
I am currently a graduating, honor roll high school senior. I led ASB my Junior year and now am Director of Audio/Visual for School Assemblies: Chapels, Pep Rallies etc. I enjoy going to my school very much because of its small size in student body and student/teacher ratio. After I graduate, I will be attending a Junior College for my general education, then transferring to a 4 year college to Major in Film, Business and Minor in Computer Science. That’s my plan for now, but I heard that people tend to change their plans in college! Film takes priority because it’s what I’m currently involved with in the real world.
How did my film passion start? Thanks to my 10th grade Bible teacher who assigned us a video project for our semester final. I loved the project and chose to pursue the interest. Immediately after the video project, I wrote a 30 minute screenplay and shot that on school campus. As the days progressed, I found writing to be more enjoyable than directing my own film. I would prefer to be on set at the time of shooting, but not the main director. Currently, I am writing screenplays for a TV show called Life Unplugged TV, geared toward teenagers and young adults, hosted by Egypt McKee. Talk about being immersed in the industry at such a young age! The short film that Egypt McKee and I have written may potentially be screened at the Talent One Media film festival!
As for business, it is more of a side goal. I found my business instincts during the time of the Nintendo Wii craze and when Disneyland was giving out those hard to find, Dream Fastpasses. I currently don’t have any set items to sell, but I still look when I have time.
In closing, what are my life goals? Well, being the best at an attraction at a Disney Park? Check. Enter the movie industry and be successful? Getting there. One step at a time. Visit Toy Story Mania at Disney’s Hollywood Studios? If only I could get a job or someone generously sponsors me. And finally, live close to Disneyland. CHECK!!!
