Like it or not Disney is always expanding their parks and adding exciting new things. Some Disnerds like myself think they should keep the classic rides and build new ones rather then replace them (Great Movie Ride *cough cough*) but I do think that Toy Story Land is going to be an awesome new addition to Hollywood Studios, and I for one cannot wait to visit. Read on to see all the news about this brand new addition coming soon to Walt Disney World.
Slinky Dog Dash: This will be the only new Rollercoaster coming to Walt Disney World for quite some time but we have been assured that Slinky Dog Dash will be worth the wait! Much like Seven Dwarfs Mine Train in Magic Kingdom, Disney imagineers wanted to create a ride that could be fun for their older guests while also making it accessible to the younger family members as well. Hollywood Studios already has two attractions for the more hardcore thrill seekers with The Hollywood Tower of Terror and Rockin' Rollercoaster so this is a welcomed addition to the park. According to Imagineers, Andy built this ride with his own Mega Coaster play kit. As you ride through Andy's backyard you will get to experience that Slinky personality we all love so much as well as interact with the rest of the Toy Story Gang!
Check out the video below to get a sneak peak of the new rollercoaster as well as hear what Imagineers are saying about it!
Alien Swirling Saucers: The Alien Swirling Saucers are inspired from the iconic little green aliens from the original Toy Story film. This ride is very similar to the tea cups in the Magic Kingdom, just with their own Toy Story twist. Much like the rest of the attractions in Toy Story Land, this attraction has a story behind it's origin that is tied back to Andy Davis (Yes, Andy's last name is Davis). Imagineers have told us that Andy got this as a toy from Pizza Planet and set it up in his back yard.
Toy Story Midway Mania: I'm sure all of us Disney fans are familiar with this amazing ride! While not a new attraction, this attraction will play an integral part to the story and layout of Toy Story Land. It is a well known fact that Toy Story Midway Mania is supposed to be the inside of Andy's House/Room. The rest of Toy Story Land has been designed to resemble Andy's backyard and we think this is going to look amazing when it is finally completed this upcoming spring (Hopefully)
Woody's Lunchbox: As for as we know this will be the only place to get food in Toy Story Land. This will be a very quick service stop. There will be no seating inside just a service window, but there is tables right out front to eat. They will be serving Mini Babel products and old fashion soda floats. There is still no word on whether or not Pizza Planet will make a reappearance in Toy Story Land but we are still holding out hope (Fingers Crossed!)
Here is a video of the diorama of Toy Story Land that is now on display in Walt Disney World. This diorama really puts into perspective of how big Toy Story Land really is. This model also gets us super excited about Slinky Dog Dash, Look at how long it is!
