As the countdown continues to the opening of Toy Story Land on June 30, more “toy-riffic” news is emerging for the colourful new land coming to life at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Florida.
Guests will “shrink” to the size of a toy as they enter into this land full of everyone’s favourite toys, building blocks and game pieces. Across 11 fun-filled acres designed to recreate Andy’s toy-filled backyard from the Disney·Pixar “Toy Story” films, guests will be fully engaged in the world where Woody, Buzz, Jessie and all their pals come out to play.
Highlights will include:
- Alien Swirling Saucers. Designed as a play set Andy won at the Pizza Planet restaurant, “Toy Story” green aliens have powered up their flying saucers and earthbound guests get to play along.
- Ten-hut! Sarge and the Green Army Man Drum Corps will be marching several times a day through Toy Story Land. As the Drum Corps marches on, guests are invited to follow another contingent of Green Army Men to their fun and interactive boot camp, where they’ll “toy” with guests using giant Pixar balls, oversized crayons and a game of SARGE SAYS (their own spin on Simon Says). Will guests have what it takes to become official recruits in Andy’s backyard?
- Wheezy, the squeaky toy penguin from the “Toy Story” films, will do more than bring smiles to the faces of guests riding Slinky Dog Dash, the family style coaster coming to Toy Story Land. The all-new Audio-Animatronics figure will appear in the last scene of the coaster singing “You’ve Got a Friend in Me” in that great (and unexpected) voice of his. Wheezy will be accompanied by his toy friends: Mike the tape recorder, who’s provided him with a microphone, and Mr. Spell, who “texts” funny commentary.
