Toy Story Land has finally opened at Walt Disney World’s Hollywood Studios, and we are so excited! The land is home to more fun than—well—a barrel of monkeys (but you’ll find barrels of monkeys there too!). We love everything about Toy Story, and Toy Story Land has made our dreams a reality! We are finally able to explore Andy’s backyard and interact with his toys! If you haven’t had the chance to visit yet, here are 11 things you’ll want to know about the new land so you’re prepared when you get that chance!
1. There are two must-do attractions!
The Slinky Dog Dash coaster ride will have you saying “Yee-haw!” Andy has put together his Dash and Dodge Coaster Kit and built a long track around the yard. And he decided to use Slinky Dog as the coaster’s ride vehicles. What could be more fun than a coaster that has you speeding around Andy’s backyard as you hang on tight to Slinky’s coils? And not too far from Slinky’s stomping grounds, you’ll find the Alien Swirling Saucers attraction, where you can board a spinning, swirling ride vehicle with the Little Green Alien Men at the controls. Hang on tight as you’re swirled, spun and slung around the huge ride platform!
2. You can meet Woody and the gang!
We love that Woody, Jessie and Buzz all have a place now where they can greet Guests, sign autographs and pose for pictures with their adoring fans. Before Toy Story Land opened, Guests could meet Woody and Buzz at Hollywood Studios, but not Jessie. In fact, the only way to be sure to see Jessie in the parks was to catch her in the “Move It! Shake It! Dance and Play It!” street party at Magic Kingdom. Stop by and greet your favorite Toy Storypals near the new entrance to Toy Story Mania!
