Building a kick-ass racetrack isn’t all that hard. All you need is the right tools: a deliriously twisty course, a few trip wires connected to turrets, and a sweet view of the Epcot Center.

I've spent a few hours on my creation, laboring over details like where the crowd of Monsters University students can stand and watch, but I'm nowhere near finished; for one thing, I still need to find a good place to put the Cave of Wonders from Aladdin. The course — which I’ve dubbed the Nemo 500 — is a paved road winding around a series of floating islands, each one home to a different Disney landmark. Smack dab in the middle, standing tall, is the clock tower from Monsters University, while a flowing river supplies waterfalls to the main island.

Disney Infinity's virtual Toy Box gives you an incredible amount of freedom to build just about whatever you want, whether it’s a virtual amusement park or an actual game. To do this you’ll use toys from a huge range of Disney favorites. The problem is that unlocking everything that makes the Toy Box so fun requires hours of tedium: half of the game feels like play, while the rest is just work. In order to get the most out of the Toy Box, you'll have to wade through a game that just isn't very interesting.
