Seeing all the larger-than-life characters we’ve loved for decades in their glory? Yes, please! (Woody’s already there to greet us! See?!)
So to tide us over until the land opens, we’ve been scouring the news for information about what we can expect in terms of attractions, rides, food, and merchandise — and we thought you’d want to see it all, too! So here we’ve gathered everything we know about Toy Story Land!
You. are. a. toyyyyy, so come play in Andy’s backyard with us!
Disney World Toy Story Land Rides & Attractions
Toy Story Land brings two brand new rides to Disney’s Hollywood Studios! Slinky Dog Dash is a family coaster that glides through the Land on Andy’s Mega Coaster Play Kit!
This family-friendly thrill ride will pass such iconic toys as colorful wooden blocks and Jessie, who’s tugging on a string of lights.
We’ll also catch a glimpse of Wheezy on the way by!
Slink is absolute, giant perfection! We can’t wait to climb in between his Slinky loops for a super-fun ride through the new land!
The second new ride is called Alien Swirling Saucers, and the concept here is that Andy has won a play set at Pizza Planet — and now you’re on board for a wild ride!
This spinning ride features seating in colorful UFOs that are pulled by the little green guys! We’ve even heard that someone will be chosen by The Clawwwwwww!
And, of course, Toy Story Midway Mania will remain a big draw to Toy Story Land, with a new entrance making it accessible from the newly opened areas of the park. Don’t forget this 4-D, shooting-style game has added a third track, making it bigger and better than ever!
Aside from these three exciting rides, expect plenty of character meet-and-greets as Toy Story Land celebrates the beloved characters from the movie franchise. Woody, Buzz Lightyear, and Jessie are all set to meet their biggest fans! We also expect to see the Army Men surveying the Land, and hope to see many more!
Disney World Toy Story Land Restaurants and Food
Of course, you knew Disney Food Blog would stay on top of any new food news — and there’s been plenty!
We’ve heard about Woody’s Lunch Box — a quick service spot serving up American-style eats like Square Tarts (in the spirit of Pop Tarts!) and a BBQ Brisket Melt!
Other exciting new eats include breakfast bites like a S’mores French Toast Breakfast Sandwich (yum!) and a Breakfast Bowl.
Lunch and dinner include some awesome-sounding sandwiches in addition to the BBQ Brisket Melt, like a Grilled Three-Cheese Sandwich and a Monte Cristo with Raspberry Jam! One of each, please!
When Woody’s Lunch Box opens with the rest of Toy Story Land on June 30, it’s pretty much guaranteed to have long lines — so we put together some handy info to help you cut down on your lunch box wait times. We’re excited to see that Woody will be accepting Mobile Ordering!
We can’t wait to sink our T-Rex teeth into these eats, can you?!
Disney World Toy Story Land Merchandise
Pixar has been killing the merchandise game on both coasts lately, and Disney’s Hollywood Studios has become a hub of cool stuff! When Sweet Spells closed in April, part of the location became Tinseltown Trinkets and Reel Vogue — a Pixar merchandise shop!
New items included such toy-rrific items as apparel and accessories!
We’re looking forward to checking out these cool items when Toy Story Land opens! There’s a good chance we won’t be able to resist these kids’ tees.
We’ve already spotted a Toy Story MagicBand, and it’s totally awesome! The iconic blue is a must!
We’re also looking forward to celebrating the Toy Story Land grand opening with a Slinky Dog Headband because… Slinky Dog Headband.
Of course, if you prefer your headbands green and triple-eyed, there will be a headband for that, too. :p
You’ll be able to bring home a Slinky Dog toy of your own, so make sure you leave room in your suitcase! (He lights up. Don’t bother trying to resist.)
So let’s tear down those construction walls, put in some fresh batteries, and get in there!
