Disney’s Hollywood Studios is about to become even more playful! A new land eleven acres in size inspired by Disney-Pixar’s “Toy Story” films celebrates it’s grand opening June 30, 2018!
When you arrive in Toy Story Land, you will feel as though you have shrunk down to the size of a toy in the larger-than-life setting of Andy’s backyard. Surrounded by giant blocks, board game pieces and more, you’ll have a ton of fun with the Toy Story characters since Andy has set them up in his play area.
We are so excited for the two new attractions that will open along with Toy Story Land. They are Slinky Dog Dash and Alien Swirling Saucers!
Toy Story Land Attractions
Slinky Dog Dash
Slinky Dog Dash is a fun, family coaster that Andy has assembled with his very own roller coaster kit. The tracks and supports are in bright colors of red, orange, yellow and blue. They have been put together according to Andy’s hand-drawn plans, with Rex and Jessie lending a hand.
Everyone’s favorite floppy-eared dachshund has been dropped on to the coaster track to carry you on an adventure that bends and twists around curves, hills, bridges and drops. Riders will zip around and above Toy Story Land, with panoramic views of the new land. Slink Dog Dash will be fun for the entire family. The height requirement for Slinky is just 38 inches (97cm).
Alien Swirling Saucers
Get ready to say “ooooooh” and brace yourself for out-of-this-world fun because the aliens from Pizza Planet have powered up their flying saucers in Toy Story Land! Alien Swirling Saucers is another of Andy’s toy sets that we get to enjoy. This galactic space toy is designed as a play set that Andy won at the Pizza Planet restaurant. The 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. With fun new music and lighting, this is one everyone is sure to love! The height requirement here is just 32 inches (81cm).
Toy Story Mania!

While not new, Toy Story Mania! is now part of Toy Story Land. 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, too.
Recently updated with a third track, this very popular attraction can now 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. Guests of any height can ride this one.
Toy Story Land Food
What about Snacks? Toy Story Land Foods
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. Called Woody’s Lunch Box, you’ll be able to get things like S’mores French Toast and hearty brisket bowls for breakfast and Monte Cristo sandwiches, BBQ Brisket Metls and more for lunch and dinner. You won’t want to miss the Raspberry and Chocolate-Hazelnut Lunch Box tarts or specialty beverages (including alcoholic options for adults) either!
Toy Story Land Characters
Who’s Going to Be There? Meeting Characters
Inside Toy Story Land, you’ll have the chance to encounter some of your favorite characters from the Disney-Pixar “Toy Story” films, including Sheriff Woody, Buzz Lightyear, and Jessie the Yodeling Cowgirl. Woody, Buzz and Jessie will be greeting guests throughout Toy Story Land on a daily basis
Additionally, guests can also be entertained by the Sarge and the Green Army Man Drum Corps, who will march through the land several times a day. Or stop to play “Sarge Says” or other games with your fellow toy-sized guests. You can also join in on their interactive boot camp to see if you have what it takes to become an official recruit in Andy’s Backyard.
