The new Toy Story Land at Walt Disney World Resort, inspired by Pixar's Toy Story films, turns guests of all ages into “honorary toys” and allows them to join Woody, Jessie, Buzz Lightyear, Slinky Dog, Green Army Men and other fun-loving Toy Story characters come to life in Andy’s backyard today, June 30, 2018. At Disney's Hollywood Studios, you will be surrounded by famous toys such as giant building blocks, Tinkertoys, yo-yos, board-game pieces, dominoes, Scrabble tiles, and even a giant roller coaster set.
Toy Story Land includes two all-new attractions and a new entrance for a fan-favorite attraction. Hop on Slinky Dog for a family-friendly roller coaster ride or take a spin with the little green Aliens from Pizza Planet. Toy Story Mania has a new entrance for you to challenge your friends and family to beat your high score.
“With set pieces, staging, attractions and experiences, Toy Story Land represents the best of Walt Disney Imagineering’s collaboration with our storytelling partners at Pixar Animation Studios,” said Bob Chapek, Chairman of Disney Parks, Experiences and Consumer Products. “This new land will place guests inside the wondrous world of Woody, Buzz and their pals – and invite everyone to experience the joy of being a toy.
Slinky Dog Dash
A family-friendly thrill ride around the backyard that includes two launches, Slinky Dog Dash will have riders zipping around and above Toy Story Land, catching great vistas of all the new land has to offer. In a first for a Disney coaster, Slinky Dog Dash features a second launch at its midpoint as riders experience cool sound effects and spinning lights, darting through a series of rings on their way to the attraction’s finale featuring Wheezy, the squeaky penguin from the Toy Story films.
Alien Swirling Saucers
Alien Swirling Saucers is designed as a playset Andy won at the Pizza Planet restaurant. The little green Aliens swirl about in toy rocket ships with guests in tow, while “The Claw” hangs overhead. Two sets of 11 saucer/rocket-ship pairings spin guests through a multi-colored galaxy to an energetic soundtrack.
Toy Story Mania!
Toy Story Mania!, one of the most popular attractions at Disney’s Hollywood Studios – receives an all-new entrance. The entrance is actually the box Andy’s Toy Story Mania! game came in.
Woody’s Lunch Box
Woody’s Lunch Box serves 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 is sponsored by Mini Babybel cheese – the Official Snack Cheese of Walt Disney World Resort.
Two merchandise locations – a toy camper and toy dump truck – offer shoppers logo merchandise, must-have collectibles and unique gifts to remember your time in Toy Story Land.
To add to the fun, Woody, Jessie, Buzz and their pals appear throughout the land. The Green Army Drum Corps creates a playfully drum rhythm, and Sarge and the Green Army Patrol march through the land, playing games with guests in a fun and interactive boot camp.
