Disney Upgrades ‘Toy Story’ Characters for Meet and Greets

Disney has been upgrading roller coasters, rides, and attractions right and left — even as it permanently closes some offerings — and the next upgrade is coming in the form of new looks for three popular Disney and Pixar characters!

Toy Story¬†costumes and¬†Toy Story¬†characters’ appearances have already been on Disney fans’ minds lately, since one Kardashian offended many Pixar enthusiasts recently by choosing a rather revealing version of the Jessie cowgirl costume for Halloween. That celebrity may have upset a lot of¬†Toy Story¬†fans, but it looks like Disney Guests will not be upset about the new upgrades to Jessie and her friends’ looks in the Disney Parks!

At Disney‚Äôs Hollywood Studios, the¬†Toy Story¬†Meet and Greet featuring Buzz, Woody, and Jessie has returned, and the characters have gotten the Disney version of plastic surgery! It’s clear from the pictures shown below that the costumes’ faces are showing more expression and detail than they have previously.

The Toy Story character costumes have not always impressed Disney Guests in person, so this upgrade is certainly noticeable. Check out their new, vibrant facial features!

Each character looks crisp, fresh, and energetic in their revamped look — but Buzz Lightyear (who has also been the talk of the town lately due to the¬†Lightyear¬†film that was recently released on Disney+) will be turning heads the most in his Space Ranger suit.

This new version of the Space Ranger suit is far less cumbersome; originally, the costume served to accentuate Buzz’s status as a plastic toy, but it also made him look somewhat awkward and, of course, made it harder for the performer inside the costume to move comfortably.

We can see that any performer in the new Space Ranger suit is going to feel far more comfortable — and be able to interact with Guests during Meet and Greets on a more genuine level! Are you excited to see the new looks of these Toy Story¬†characters in person?
