Our family had the pleasure of attending Disney’s Social Media Moms Celebration 2018 last week. We had an absolute blast, and also learned a ton! One of our favorite new Disney offerings is for Toy Story Land that is set to open at Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida on June 30th, 2018.
Toy Story Land is part of a multi-year reimagining of Disney’s Hollywood Studios and the largest expansion in the theme park’s history.
This new 11-acre land will will take guests to infinity and beyond, as guests are transported into the adventurous outdoors of Andy’s backyard. Guests will think they’ve been shrunk to the size of Woody and Buzz as they are surrounded by oversized toys. Guests will whoosh along on a family-friendly roller coaster, Slinky Dog Dash, take a spin aboard Alien Swirling Saucers and score high on the midway at the expanded Toy Story Mania!
Toy Story Land at Walt Disney World Resort
Attendees of Disney’s Social Media Moms Celebration #DisneySMMC were invited to learn more about Toy Story Land. We even got to get up close and personal with one of the Slinky Dog rollercoaster cars! Slinky Dog is just as adorable in person as you imagine he would be!
We were also invited to speak with one of Disney’s Imagineers, Ryan, who is working on Toy Story Land. He gave us lots of fun details about the new attraction. It was really cool to hear Ryan speak so passionately about watching years of hard work on Toy Story Land come to life before his eyes!
Offerings at Toy Story Land include:
- Slinky Dog Dash. Andy has assembled his roller coaster kit for maximum family fun. Tracks and supports in bright colors of red, orange, yellow and blue are put together according to Andy’s hand-drawn plans, with Rex and Jessie lending a hand. And to complete his creation, Andy picked up everyone’s favorite floppy-eared dachshund with a strrrrretch-ing slinky coil belly and dropped it on to the coaster track. Get ready to ride inside Slinky Dog’s coils! Slinky Dog Dash is inspired bythe 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 above 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 for the entire family.
- Alien Swirling Saucers. Brace yourself for out-of-this-world 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 is 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 attractions 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 playset action taking aim at 3D objects – using everything from baseballs to cream pies – in a variety of whimsical, fast-paced games. To the high-scorer go bragging rights.
When it’s time for on-the-go refreshments, Woody’s Lunch Box will serve up 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.
If you happen to be at WDW anytime from now until Toy Story Land opens at the end of June, you can get a preview of Toy Story Land. Stop by the Walt Disney Presents attraction inside of Disney’s Hollywood Studios and check out a detailed model of Toy Story Land.
