Walt Disney World Toy Story Land

Located at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Orlando, the new 11-acre “Land” is designed to make feel like you’ve shrunk to the size of one of Andy’s Green Toy Soldiers. The setting will make it seem like you’re a toy in Andy’s backyard with mega-sized building blocks, game board pieces, and crayons. Even the lampposts will be shaped liked Tinker Toys!

One highlight will be Slinky Dog Dash, a family-friendly roller coaster which will traverse the entire new land.

Another is taking a spin aboard the Alien Swirling Saucers, which features the Little Green Men, aka The Squeeze Toy Aliens from the Pizza Planet claw game.

If you’ve been to Hollywood Studios before, you’re probably already familiar with Toy Story Mania. DOn’t worry, it will stay and be new and improved with a new entrance and a third track to keep lines moving.

(Note: All three of these rides will accept FastPass and you should definitely use this timed reservation option for the new rides which will most likely be packed this summer. You can make reservations up to 60 days before your visit if you’re staying on Disney property; 30 days if you’re not.)

Of course there will be lots of Toy Story-themed fun, too. Guests can enjoy Meet & Greets with Buzz, Woody and Jessie; Woody’s Lunch Box will serve “Instagram-worthy” quick service treats (Disney’s description, not ours); and, not so surprisingly, a huge store to stock up on, you guessed it, Toy Story toy swag.

Honestly, we can’t wait!
