In addition to a whole new section of the theme park, Toy Story Land includes two new rides and one classic favorite. The first is Slinky Dog Dash which will be a roller coaster that takes you on twists, curves, and drops as you go all around Toy Story Land. Throughout the ride, you’ll get to see beloved characters of the Toy Story movies such as Rex, Jessie, and even Wheezy! The second new attraction is the Alien Swirling Saucers that will allow you to board your toy rocket and spin through space on an adventure right out of the Toy Story movies. In addition to the new attractions, Toy Story Mania! is back to the Toy Story Land area with a carnival-themed 4D ride right in Andy’s Room!

These unique headbands are super fun to wear while exploring the park and great for photo ops. In addition to new headbands, you’ll find shirts, totes, and other souvenirs located across Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and within Toy Story Land.
Toy Story Land is eleven acres of fun and Disney magic, which is just one mere acre smaller than Animal Kingdom’s Pandora: World of Avatar section. There is a lot of fun packed into a small radius, so even smaller children can still enjoy this section of the park.
Toy Story is a beloved movie not only from my childhood but my kid’s childhood as well. If you haven’t already planned a trip to Disney’s Hollywood Studios, this post might change your mind!
