Walt Disney World Announces Toy Story Land to Open June 30, 2018

We’ve been waiting for an exact date, and Friday on ABC’s “Good Morning America,” parent company Walt Disney World announced the official opening date of Toy Story Land will be June 30, 2018.

Inspired by Disney•Pixar’s Toy Story films, guests who enter Toy Story Land at Disney’s Hollywood Studios will feel like they have shrunk to the size of a toy as Woody, Jessie, Buzz, Slinky Dog, the Aliens, Green Army Men and other fun-loving Toy Story characters come to life in the larger-than-life outdoor setting of Andy’s backyard.

Across eleven fun-filled acres, Toy Story Land will include two all-new attractions and one expanded favorite:

Slinky Dog Dash is inspired by the delightful pooch spin-off of Slinky, the 1950s American toy classic. Riders of all ages will delight as Slinky Dog bends and twists his coils around curves, hills, bridges and drops in the Slinky-est coaster ever. Riders will zip around and above Toy Story Land, serving up panoramic views of all that the new land has to offer.

Alien Swirling Saucers will immerse guests in the play set that Andy won at the Pizza Planet restaurant. 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.

Toy Story Mania! is getting an all-new colorful toy carnival game box entrance, and a third track, so the popular attraction can 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.

When it’s time for on-the-go refreshments, Woody’s Lunch Box will serve up tasty meals and old-fashioned soda floats from a walk-up window.

Are you excited to go play in Andy’s Back Yard when Toy Story Land opens this summer? I know I can’t wait to check it all out!
