Imagineers Put the Finishing Touches on Toy Story Land


Can you believe that Toy Story Land opens in less than two weeks at Disney's Hollywood Studios?!


Walt Disney Imagineering just shared a new video from the Toy Story Land site, where Imagineers of all disciplines are putting the final touches on the new land.


In the video above, Imagineers Ryan Wineinger, Shannon Mashchak and Alexis Cummins share just how many divisions within Walt Disney Imagineering – such as Show, Project Management and Graphics – have joined forces to bring this playful project to life. They also provide us some insight on the smaller but essential details they’ve added to the land – graphics, such as those that appear on toy boxes and game boards that add authenticity to the land’s selection of toys.


“The graphics tell a story because they really help ground where you are,” said Graphic Designer Alexis Cummins. “Any visual is really going to do that for guests, especially at Toy Story Land. We’re using all of the things Andy would actually have at his disposal to make our signs and graphics.”


The box for Wheezy that guests will pass in the Slinky Dog Dash queue has become a favorite graphic for the Toy Story Land Imagineers. “My favorite thing about it is it really does give you more information about where Wheezy came from, how long Andy’s had him and it’s just a great graphic,” Alexis said.
