A new toy-filled world – inspired by Disney Pixar’s Toy Story films – will open at Walt Disney World Resort on June 30.
Guests in Toy Story Land – located 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 11 fun-filled acres, Toy Story Land will include two all-new attractions and one expanded favourite. Guests will whoosh along on a family friendly roller coaster behind Slinky Dog, take a spin with flying saucers in toy spaceships and score high on the midway.
Toy Story Land will also celebrate what once defined entertainment for a generation. Crayons, Rubik’s Cubes, Cooties, Green Army Men and other toys and games will pour on the nostalgia for park-goers. Even the lampposts will be shaped like Tinkertoys.
“With set pieces, staging, attractions and experiences Toy Story Land represents the best of Walt Disney Imagineering’s collaboration with our storytelling partners at Pixar Animation Studios,” said Bob Chapek, chairman of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts. “This new land will place guests inside the wondrous world of Woody, Buzz and their pals – and invite everyone to experience the joy of being a toy.”
When it’s time for on-the-go refreshments, Woody’s Lunch Box will serve up meals and old-fashioned soda floats from a walk-up window in a setting surrounded by Andy’s favourite toys and a giant vintage thermos.
