Can you believe it Toy Story Land will be here soon?
Last week Teen boy and I with grandma, of course, got to spend a fun week at Disney as part of the Disney Social Meda Mom Celebration. We had a wonderful time and learned so much.
One of my favorite parts was getting to learn about Toy Story Land that will be opening at Hollywood Studios on June 30t.
Toy Story Land at Walt Disney World
During our time at #DisneySMMC, we were given the opportunity to talk with a couple of the Imagineer team members for Toy Story Land. some of the things we learned were.
Toy Story Land is part of a multi-year reimagining of Disney’s Hollywood Studios and the largest expansion in the theme park’s history.
The new 11-acre land will take guests and shrink them to toy size as they explore Andy’s backyard.Guests will whoosh along on a family-friendly roller coaster, Slinky Dog Dash, take a spin aboard Alien Swirling Saucers and score high on the midway at the expanded Toy Story Mania!
Fun Offerings at Toy Story Land
Slinky Dog Dash
Andy has put together his roller coaster kit for maximum family fun. Tracks and supports are done up in bright colors of red, orange, yellow and blue. They are assembled according to Andy’s hand-drawn plans, with Rex and Jessie lending a hand. To complete his creation, Andy has picked up everyone’s favorite floppy-eared dachshund with a slinky coil belly and dropped it on to the coaster track. Get ready to ride inside Slinky Dog’s coils! Slinky Dog Dash is inspired by the delightful pooch spinoff of Slinky, the 1950s American toy classic. Riders of all ages will delight as Slinky Dog bends and twists his coils around curves, hills, bridges, and drops. Riders will zip around and above andy’s backyard, serving up panoramic views of all that the new land has to offer. Andy’s colorful creation will stretch Slinky Dog and his coils to the max – from his head to his upturned tail – and be fun for the entire family.
Alien Swirling Saucers
Brace yourself for out-of-this-world thrills because the aliens have powered up their flying saucers! Alien Swirling Saucers will immerse guests in the playful world of Andy’s toys. This galactic space toy is designed as a play set that Andy won at the Pizza Planet restaurant.
