Everything You Need to Know About Toy Story Land

Guests of Disney’s Hollywood Studios will feel toy-sized while exploring Andy’s Backyard in the incredible Toy Story Land! Parkgoers will find themselves surrounded by Tinker Toy lamp posts, large-scale replicas of Jessie, Rex, and other nostalgic toys.

Attractions

Toy Story Land’s primary attraction is the Slinky Dog Roller Coaster. The family friendly ride takes riders all around and above the new land. Guests can hop into a Slinky Dog car and fly across the track built by Andy with hand-drawn plans. An audio animatronic Wheezy the Penguin makes an appearance at the end of the ride. Along with Mike the Tape Recorder and Mr. Spell, Wheezy sings “You’ve Got A Friend in Me” as the journey comes to an end.

*38″ height requirement

The area’s other new attraction is called Alien Swirling Saucers. Designed to look like a playset Andy won from Pizza Planet, the infamous “claw” hangs from the top. Once aboard, riders spin around to the beat of flashing lights while trying to escape the reach of The Claw. The ride’s soundtrack features galactic sound effects and electronic remixes of songs from the movie. The ride itself is very similar to Mater’s Junkyard Jamboree in Cars Land at Disney’s California Adventure. However, the Toy Story edition is totally outer space-themed, with a few pizza details tossed in. Riders must be at least 32″.

Toy Story Mania has been open at Disney’s Hollywood Studios for several years. However, the beloved attraction did undergo a few changes in preparation for the new land. The entrance of the ride has been relocated to what was formerly the back of the building. A third track was also added, allowing for more riders to board at a time.

All three of these attractions are Tier One rides. This means that you can only schedule one FastPass+ reservation in Toy Story Land at a time. FastPass+ rules only allow guests to schedule one Tier 1 and two Tier 2 reservations at a time.

Dining

In addition to the new and improved attractions, there’s also a Quick Service dining location inside Toy Story Land. Woody’s Lunch Box serves delicious childhood favorites and old fashioned soda floats. The menu was developed by The Flavor Lab, in partnership with Mini Babybel. The walk-up counter service window is surrounded by Andy’s favorite toys and a vintage Thermos.
