Walt Disney World Toy Story Land Opens June 30! Here’s What’s Coming
The brand new Toy Story Land opens on June 30 at Walt Disney World this year.
With a design made to feel like you’ve been “shrunk” down to the size of a toy, the new Hollywood Studios Toy Story Land promises to be a fully immersive Toy Story experience, complete with two new rides, a character encounter, and Toy Story-inspired food.
Guests can hop on to Slinky’s Dog Dash, take a ride on the Alien Swirling Saucers, or experience the classic Toy Story Mania from a new entrance that will open into Toy Story Land, then grab a bite to eat at Woody’s Lunch Box.
Here’s everything you need to know about Toy Story Land:
Walt Disney World Toy Story Land Rides
Toy Story Land Slinky’s Dog Dash
A family-friendly rollercoaster that curves around Toy Story Land, Slinky’s Dog Dash is shaping up to be the main attraction of the new area.
The story behind the ride tells us that Andy has assembled his toy Mega Coaster Play Kit, and Slinky is riding the coaster atop it. Riders will sit in car trains designed to look like a part of Slinky’s body.
The attraction has a 38″ height requirement, and seems to be similar in intensity to other Disney rides like Big Thunder Mountain Railroad.
“Make no mistake, this is a wacky attraction … and fun for the entire family!” Disney said in its description of the ride.
Alien Swirling Saucers
Hop on to an Alien Swirling Saucer for a ride that’ll spin around in circular movements and make figure eights throughout the attraction area.
The ride is designed to be a play set that Andy wins at Pizza Planet. The famed green Aliens from Toy Story power up their flying saucers and take riders into space. The ride is set to electronic space music to give the ride an intergalactic feel.

Disney also said that riders could be “chosen” by the famed Claw from the original Toy Story movie.
The ride has a 32″ height requirement and is similar to Mater’s Junkyard Jamboree from Cars Land.
Toy Story Mania
The already popular 4D carnival ride will get a new entrance opening up into Toy Story Land, allowing riders to feel immersed in the Toy Story experience even after the ride ends.
The ride takes guests through a variety of virtual carnival games inspired by the Toy Story franchise, such as Woody’s Rootin’ Tootin’ Shootin’ Gallery, where guests shoot at mine carts using virtual darts.
Woody’s Lunch Box
Designed to look like a lunch box propped open by a thermos, the new dining location in Toy Story Land will be a walk-up window for guests to grab a bite to eat.
Woody’s Lunch Box will offer traditional American fare with a Toy Story twist, with offerings like old-fashioned soda floats and grilled cheese sandwiches. They’ll also have a S’more French Toast Breakfast Sandwich, and Totchos (tater tots and corn chips covered in cheese and chili).
Guests can also get an Alien sipper, which features a large cup with a green alien and the Claw inside of it.
Along with the new rides, guests will soon be able to meet their favorite Toy Story characters in the new Land.
Among other Pixar characters, Woody, Buzz Lightyear, and Jessie will all be greeting guests throughout the area on a daily basis. There will be specific meet and greet locations in the new that are a ton of fun and great for photos.
