Walt Disney World is constantly changing, constantly evolving and while this is amazing. It keeps us guests on our toes…. On August 29th we saw Galaxy’s Edge open, it has been just a short year ago that we were all excited about Toy Story Land in HollyWood Studio’s open, & how amazing is Toy Story Land…. that transports you to Andy’s toy box??
A Guide to Toy Story Land – Hollywood Studios – Walt Disney World.
When you enter Toy Story Land, you become a toy from Andy’s toy box…. yes you shrink in size it really is magical in true Disney style.
As you would expect Toy Story Land is a stunning bright colour pop.
There are two amazing NEW attractions in Toy Story Land and one revamped attraction.
Slinky Dog Dash
Toy Story Mania (revamped)
Alien Swirling Saucers
Slinky Dog Dash.
Slinky Dog Dash – I personally would say that you NEED a Fast Pass for this one… unless you are prepared to wait & wait times can go over 2+ hours.
I loved Slinky Dog, I’m not a roller coaster fan. However, Slinky Dog is in my opinion the best attraction out of the three. It takes you whizzing around Andy’s backyard.
In true Disney style even waiting in the queue is fun. The theming is amazing – It’s just like Andy has taken a crayon and drawn you a picture.
Now, you do need to be 97cm or taller to ride Slinky Dog Dash and it really is fun. So I would say , try and plan in advance a snag a Fast Pass if not queue – you wont be disappointed.
Alien Swirling Saucers
This ride reminds me of the teacup ride in Magic Kingdom – with a twist. I know – not the best description. You normally sit in a party of two and you climb aboard the Alien Swirling Saucers listening to themed music – you need to be 81cm tall to ride this ride. Depending when you are visiting Toy Story Land – could all depend on whether you will need a Fast Pass.
Green Army Men.
Out and about around Toy Story Land you will see the famous Green Men Army – and yes they stop for photo opportunities which is really cool. I don’t think they come out at any set times, but when they are out they are great interactive Green Army Men. Some even play the drums!
Character Meets and Greets
If your bucket list to meet Jessie, Buzz or Woody or even the Green Army Men – then Toy Story Land is the place to be.
Toy Story Mania
Toy Story Mania has been at HollyWood Studio for a very long time – since 2008. This is an amazing ride – no height restrictions and is 4D – you wear oversized yellow glasses, ride on a car for two people shooting at moving targets. The highest score wins. This is a fun interactive game. Top Tip – aim for the secret targets as they free the Easter Eggs and these game more points. If I had to pick two fast passes in Toy Story Land – I would choose Toy Story Mania and Slinky Dog Dash.
Woody’s Lunch Box.
If you are looking for a bite to eat head to Woody’s Lunch Box. This is just like Andy has taken his lunch box and turned it into a backyard walk up – now again the theming is on-point however, the seating is limited and in busy times you may find it difficult to find somewhere to enjoy your food. The menu is mainly sandwiches melts and sandwiches.
Toy Story Land is a great place to visit.
