Alien Swirling Saucers Pre-opening

UPDATE MAY 2, 2018: Walt Disney Imagineering has released a new image of the Alien Swirling Saucers attraction, opening as part of Toy Story Land on June 30.

When the new land opens, guests will "shrink" to the size of a toy to allow them to explore Andy's backyard. Alien Swirling Saucers has been designed to look like a toy from the fictional Pizza Planet and is placed in Andy's backyard next to his Buzz Lightyear's Star Command playset. In the attraction, Aliens fly around in their toy flying saucers while "The Claw" appears overhead. As you whirl around the toy planets and space stations as part of the game, you'll hear an electronic space music soundtrack that includes eight songs that are familiar, but are performed in a quirky way you've never experienced before. Guests will also see pizza details throughout the attraction, including pizza columns, a pizza space station and the Planet Pepperonia.

You can book FastPass+ NOW for this and Slinky Dog Dash, the other new attraction opening at Toy Story Land.

Also, note that in July and August guests staying at select Walt Disney World resort hotels will be able to access Extra Magic Hours daily to experience favorite attractions at Disney's Hollywood Studios, including the attractions in the all-new Toy Story Land.



At the 2015 D23 EXPO, Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Chairman Bob Chapek unveiled plans for Toy Story Land, to be built at Disney's Hollywood Studios. The new land, inspired by the "Toy Story" film franchise, will allow guests to shrink to the size of a toy and explore the world of Andy's backyard. Here's the official press release of the announcement. Alien Swirling Saucers is one of two new attractions slated to open with the new land on June 30, 2018.


Alien Swirling Saucers is designed as a toy play set that Andy got from Pizza Planet, inspired by the first Toy Story film. Aliens are flying around in their toy flying saucers and trying to capture your rocket toy vehicle with "The Claw."

As you rotate around the toy planets and satellites as part of the game, you'll swirl to the beat of fun "Space Jazz" music developed just for this experience. The music, the lighting, and the sound effects will add to the flurry of your adventure while "The Claw" looms ominously over you.
