Undoubtedly the most highly-anticipated addition to Walt Disney World in 2018 is the new Toy Story Land section of Disney’s Hollywood Studios. With the Toy Story Land open date nearing, we now know quite a bit about what this amazing new land will include and look like. Here is a rundown of everything we know:
When does Toy Story Land Open?
Toy Story Land is slated to open at Disney’s Hollywood Studios on June 30, 2018.
Toy Story Land Theming:
The new park area will resemble a larger-than-life replica of Andy’s backyard. It features plenty of nostalgia and Toy Story memories.
According to Disney, “the entire land will serve as a visual celebration of toys, with Crayons, Cooties, Green Army Men, Rubik’s Cubes, Tinkertoys, and other familiar toys and game pieces incorporated into the land’s design.”
Toy Story Land Rides:
In addition to the existing (and super-popular) Toy Story Mania ride, which will be incorporated into the new land, there will be two new rides opening in June: Slinky Dog Dash and Alien Swirling Saucers.
Slinky Dog Dash is a family-friendly roller coaster ride that will stretch the span of the new land. It features twists and turns and an amazing amount of Toy Story theming. Here is a quick glimpse at what you can expect from this new ride:
Alien Swirling Saucers is spinning ride, seemingly similar to a tea cup type of ride only you sit in a flying saucer.
Here is an article I wrote earlier about Alien Swirling Saucers to give you a better idea of what to expect.
It is worth noting that both of the new Toy Story Land rides will have height requirements to ride. Riders of the Slinky Dog Coaster will need to be at least 38″ tall and riders of Alien Swirling Saucers will need to be at least 32″ tall. Toy Story Mania does not currently have a height requirement.
Toy Story Land Restaurant:
Toy Story Land will feature a new spot to grab a quick bite. Woody’s Lunch Box is a walk-up window-style restaurant themed to resemble Andy’s lunch box tipped on its side. The restaurant will feature “classic American fare, old-fashioned soda floats and other Toy Story-themed specialties.”
Here is an article I wrote earlier about Woody’s Lunch Box when it was first announced.
Update 4/9/18: We now know what’s on the menu at Woody’s Lunch Box. Here is a post from the Disney Parks Blog, giving us a rundown of what you can expect.
So that is everything we currently know about Toy Story Land at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. As always, I will be adding updates here as any new details emerge, so be sure to subscribe and stay tuned!
