Wheezy Arrives at Toy Story Land at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

When Toy Story Land  opens on June 30, 2018, guests will “shrink” to the size of a toy and join in on the fun Woody, Jessie, Buzz, and Andy’s other beloved toys are having in Andy’s backyard. Here, guests will be able to take a ride on Slinky Dog Dash, a roller coaster Andy has assembled from his Mega Coaster Play Kit, or take a spin on Alien Swirling Saucers, a galactic play set that Andy won at Pizza Planet.

Over the weekend, Walt Disney Imagineering marked a milestone in their creation of the highly anticipated land when they welcomed Wheezy, the toy penguin from the Disney•Pixar “Toy Story” films, to Disney’s Hollywood Studios. The squeaky penguin is the latest of Andy’s toys to appear in Toy Story Land, which so far already features Jessie, Rex and Slinky Dog.

Guests can also walk through a new carnival game box to experience Toy Story Mania!, which has been a guest-favorite attraction at the park since it opened in 2008. Now expanded with a third track, the popular attraction will allow even more guests to take aim at 3D objects – using everything from baseballs to cream pies – in a variety of whimsical, fast-paced games.

Families can also head to Woody’s Lunch Box in Toy Story Land for tasty meals and old-fashioned soda floats.
