Toy Story Land
-- Opening Summer 2018

Disney's Hollywood Studios

Updated! JULY 2017: Bob Chapek, Chairman of Walt Disney Parks & Resorts announced at the 2017 D23 Expo that Toy Story Land in Disney's Hollywood Studios will open in the summer of 2018. When the land opens, you'll find yourself shrunk to the size of a toy to explore the world of Andy's backyard with your favorite Toy Story characters, including Woody and Buzz. And Toy Story Land will feature two new themed attractions. Slinky Dog Dash will be a family coaster attraction where you'll zip, dodge and dash around many turns and drops that Andy has created to really make Slinky and his coils stretch to his limits. Alien Swirling Saucers will also be a new attraction at Toy Story Land. It's 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."

 

Toy Story Land

At the 2015 D23 EXPO, Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Chairman Bob Chapek just unveiled plans for Toy Story Land, to be built at Disney's Hollywood Studios at the Walt Disney World Resort. 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. The new Toy Story-themed land will include two unique attractions, one featuring the Little Green Men aliens of the movies, the other a family-friendly Slinky Dog coaster. Here's the official press release of the announcement.

According to Imagineer Kathy Mangum, Toy Story Land was inspired by the overwhelming guest response to Cars Land at Disney California Adventure park at the Disneyland Resort.

"As all of you know, here in Anaheim, we've been quite successful with taking immersive experiences to a whole new level as we did with Cars Land. In fact, one of our favorite stories from opening day is that we overheard a little boy asking his mom, ‘Is this where they filmed the Cars movie?'" Kathy said. "That's exactly how we want people to feel – like they've stepped onto the set of their favorite film … like the quaint town of Radiator Springs or, in the case of ‘Toy Story,' the wild and adventurous outdoors of Andy's backyard."

When Toy Story Land opens at the park, guests will be able to play with some of their favorite toys at two new attractions that will be unique to the Walt Disney World Resort, plus one expanded favorite:
