The moment so many of us have been waiting for is finally here. Walt Disney World has officially announced the opening of Toy Story Land ! Opening June 30th, 2018, this is newest addition to Disney’s Hollywood Studios and is only the beginning the amazing things coming to this park. That’s only a little over four months away. Now say it with me (in your best Little Green Alien voice) ooooohahhhhhhh! Two weeks ago you may remember seeing me in New York City for the special announcement. Not only did we learn when it will officially open but we’ve learned all kinds of exciting details about what’s instore when it officially opens.
Toy Story Land is approximately 11 acres in size and will feature attractions like Slinky Dog Dash, Alien Swirling Saucers and an updated Toy Story Mania! with a new entrance location once the land officially opens. Guests visiting the parks can get a preview of all the fun to come by visiting the Toy Story Land model on display at Disney’s Hollywood Studios Walt Disney Presents attraction.
Now let’s learn a little bit about the fun waiting for you at Toy Story Land:
SLINKY DOG DASH
It’s as if Andy has assembled his roller coaster kit for maximum family fun. Slinky Dog Dash is inspired by the delightful pooch spinoff of Slinky, the 1950s American toy classic. Riders of all ages will delight as Slinky Dog bends and twists his coils around curves, hills, bridges and drops in the Slinky-est coaster ever. Riders will zip around and avocet Toy Story Land , serving up panoramic views of all that the new land has to offer. Andy’s colorful creation will stretch Slinky Dog and his coils to the max – from his head to his upturned tail – and be fun or the entire family.
Can’t you just picture yourself sitting in this coaster? I can and I can already hear my daughter’s squeals as she sits in a REAL Slinky Dog.
ALIEN SWIRLING SAUCERS
Brace yourself for out-of-this-wrold thrills because the aliens have powered up their flying saucers! Alien Swirling Saucers will immerse guests in the playful world of Andy’s toys. This galactic space toy its designed as a play set that Andy won at the Pizza Planet restaurant. Adorable little Toy Story green Aliens swirl about in their flying saucers with guests in tow in their rocket-ship toys, while “The Claw” hangs overhead. This space adventure is bathed in music reimagined for intergalactic fun, dappled with multi-color lighting and sound effects from throughout galaxies.
TOY STORY MANIA!
While Andy’s away, the toys will play. One of the most beloved attraction at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Toy Story Mania! , gets an all-new colorful toy carnival game box entrance when the new land opens. In fact, this is the box that the Toy Story Mania! game came in. Recently updated with a third track, the popular attraction will put even more guests in the carnival playlet action taking ai, at 3D objects – using everything from baseballs to cream pies – in a variety of whimsical, fast-paced games. The high-scorer gets bragging rights.
WOODY’S LUNCH BOX
When you get hungry, it’s off to Woody’s Lunch Box you go. Here you’ll find tasty meals and old-fashioned soda floats from a walk-up window in a setting surrounded by Andy’s favorite toys and a giant vintage thermos. Woody’s Lunch Box will also feature Mini Babybel – the Official Snack Cheese of Walt Disney World Resort.
There’s so many exciting things happening at the Disney Parks in the coming months and years and Toy Story Land is just the beginning. Having a place that brings all our favorite characters like Buzz, Woody and the whole Toy Story gang together is priceless. Especially if your kids are Toy Story Obsessed like mine. Evie won’t leave the house without her Woody and Jessie dolls, they sleep by her side every single night so when she gets to step foot inside Toy Story Land for the first time. This special place of imagination is for them and all of us who are still big kids at heart.
With so many exciting attractions coming to Toy Story Land, what are you looking forward to most?
