Disney Announces Official Opening Date for Toy Story Land

This morning Disney announced the highly-anticipated Toy Story Land will officially open on June 30, 2018 at Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World Resort.

From Disney:

When it opens, guests visiting Toy Story Land 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 can take a ride on Slinky Dog Dash, a roller coaster Andy has assembled from his Mega Coaster Play Kit and topped off with Slinky and Jessie.

Families will also be able to take a spin on Alien Swirling Saucers, a galactic play set that Andy won from Pizza Planet. Here, adorable little green aliens swirl about in their flying saucers with guests in tow in their rocket ship toys, while “The Claw” hangs overhead.

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 put even more guests in the action taking aim at 3D objects – using everything from baseballs to cream pies – in a variety of whimsical, fast-paced games.

Check out the time-lapse video below of one of Slinky Dog Dash’s first test runs.

Disney’s Hollywood Studios Will Keep Its Name & First Look at Alien Swirling Saucers

Today Disney announced Disney’s Hollywood Studios’ name will remain the same.  According to a post on Disney Parks Blog, Disney’s Hollywood Studios name will remain the same for the foreseeable future since we are immersing our guests in a place where imagined worlds of Hollywood unfold around them from movies and music, to television and theater.

They also gave us a first look at the Alien Swirling Saucers attraction coming to Toy Story Land.  Once the aliens have powered up their flying saucers, you’ll get to climb into a toy rocket and hang on as aliens lead the way on an interstellar romp set to an out-of-this-world beat. And if you’re really lucky, you just might get “chosen” by the claw!

Toy Story Land will open at Disney’s Hollywood Studios this summer.

Disney Announces NEW Woody’s Lunch Box Eatery Planned for Toy Story Land

Today, Disney has shared some exciting news regarding Toy Story Land which is set to open next year at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.  A new quick-service restaurant called Woody’s Lunch Box will serve up tasty meals and old fashioned floats.

According to Disney, guests will shrink to the size of a toy and explore all of the fun (and toys!) Andy has constructed in his backyard. This story continues at Woody’s Lunch Box, where Andy has used his lunch box and thermos to create a walk-up quick-service window that will serve up tasty meals and old-fashioned soda floats. In the rendering above, you can see that Woody’s Lunch Box – like the rest of Toy Story Land – has been adorably strewn about with some of Andy’s favorite toys and items from his lunch. You can even spot a green army man on a nearby lookout tower, keeping watch for Andy’s return.

The Walt Disney World Resort will partner with Mini Babybel to bring this location to life.  Stay tuned for more information and menu items coming soon!

Toy Story Land is scheduled to open in summer 2018 at Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World Resort.
