Best Tips for Visiting Toy Story Land at Walt Disney World

Toy Story Land in Disney's Hollywood Studios is a popular area of Walt Disney World and a must see on your trip. When you enter Toy Story Land you'll be shrunk down to the size of a toy and you will be surrounded in a toy-filled setting. You can explore the whole land including a lunch box, a flying saucer toy set, and more. There are hundreds of toys to find in Andy's backyard.

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

It's best to start with the rides because some of the best rides at Disney's Hollywood Studios can be found in Toy Story Land!

Slinky Dog Dash Roller CoasterSlinky Dash Roller Coaster at Disney world

This family friendly coaster lets you ride Slinky Dog as he twists around curves, hills, and drops around Toy Story Land. 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 is 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!”

Alien Swirling SaucersAlien 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

Toy Story Midway Mania is a 4D carnival ride where guests can play a Toy Story game to win points and compete for the best score. 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. Any height can ride!

Tips and Tricks for the RidesSlinky Dog Dash inside Toy Story Land

When it comes to securing a Genie+ for Slinky Dog Dash in Toy Story Land there is a bit of strategy involved. I would recommend reserving a Genie+ reservation for Slinky Dog Dash as soon as you're able as this is easily one of the most popular attractions in Hollywood Studios!

Arrive early at the gates prior to opening and head straight to Toy Story Midway Mania! to ride first using standby and save Genie+ for Slinky Dog Dash. Alien Swirling Saucers usually has a lower wait in the morning so you can ride that after Toy Story Midway Mania!

You can read more about Genie+ at Disney World in our guide here.

Entertainment at Toy Story LandBuzz Lightyear, Jessie and Woody stand together on the streets of Toy Story Land

You can find plenty of characters to meet at Toy Story Land from all your favorite Toy Story movies. The three most dependable meet and greets at Woody, Buzz Lightyear, and Jessie. This summer Bo Peep from Toy Story 4 also made appearance.

Little Green Solider Men and Women roam the land and if you're lucky you can catch a photograph with these funny characters.

You can also keep your eye out for future Disney After Hours events at Disney's Hollywood Studios. For an extra cost, guests can enter the parks after closing and experience the rides and characters with little to no wait. All of Toy Story Land is open during these events so it's a great time to experience the land with no waits if you're a big Toy Story fan!

Another common way to beat the crowds is to purchase a ticket for Early Morning Magic at Toy Story Land which includes a buffet breakfast and early entry to the land. You can purchase tickets and see times for the early entry here.

Dining at Toy Story LandWoody's Lunch Box

Currently there is one dining location inside Toy Story Land called Woody's Lunch Box. Designed to look like a lunch box propped open by a thermos, this dining location in Toy Story Land has a walk-up window for guests to grab a bite to eat.

Woody's Lunch Box offers 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.

This quick-service restaurant offers a variety of American and classic food inspired by Toy Story. Make sure to try the Lunch Box Tart which is a fan favorite at the land! It's like a giant poptart and they're delicious.

Roundup Rodeo BBQ Restaurant

There is another restaurant in the works coming soon to Toy Story Land- a table-service restaurant called Roundup Rodeo BBQ. The theme of this restaurant is one that Andy has created to make a new rodeo arena using his favorite games and play sets. Once inside guests will be surrounded by rodeo themed action along with feeling like they have shrunk down to a toy themselves.
