Walt Disney World Resort is set to sprinkle a little more magic over its Florida park as it opens Toy Story Land on June 30th.
Visitors can meet the whole gang as Woody, Buzz, Rex, Jessie, Mr Potato Head and the Green Aliens say hello in the park’s latest attraction. Spread over 11 acres in the Hollywood Studios park, it is the largest expansion in Walt Disney World’s history and brings to the life the beloved characters of the iconic franchise.
Toy Story Land takes the setting of Andy’s backyard with all the toys set-up to create the best playtime ever. Guests can wander around this colourful landscape of building blocks, game board pieces and much more. Have a bite to eat from Woody’s Lunch Box which serves up tasty meals and classic sofa floats.
However, like with anything at Walt Disney World it is all about the rides. The centrepiece is the Slinky Dog Dash, a rollercoaster where visitors sit between Slinky Dog’s coils and zip around the track marvelling at Andy’s creations. There is the Alien Swirling Saucers where you join the Green Aliens as they guide you through their galactic universe while every now and then gazing up at “The Claw”.
Alongside the rides, Toy Story Land celebrates the entertainment that defined a generation with Rubik’s cubes, green army men and crayons pouring on the nostalgic for older guests.
Bob Chapek, chairman of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts, said: “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.
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.”
The Toy Story-themed attractions have already gone down a storm across Walt Disney World’s other sites. Toy Story Playland opened at Walt Disney Studios Paris in August 2010, Toy Story Land at Hong Kong Disneyland was launched in November 2011 while another Toy Story Land is set to open at Shanghai Disneyland in April 2018.
