Construction on Toy Story Land is moving along mighty fast so we all knew it was coming, and now it’s been confirmed by Bob Chapek himself at D23. The new land for Disney’s Hollywood Studios will open Summer 2018.
In 2018, guests will find themselves shrunk down to the size of a toy to explore the world of Andy’s backyard with their favorite Toy Story characters, including Woody and Buzz. The new land will feature two new themed attractions.
Slinky Dog Dash will be a family coaster attraction where you’ll zip, dodge and dash around many turns and drops that Andy has created to really make Slinky and his coils stretch to his limits.
Alien Swirling Saucers (Really? We’re still going with A.S.S.?) will also be a new attraction at Toy Story Land. It’s designed as a toy play set that Andy got from Pizza Planet, inspired by the first “Toy Story” film. Aliens are flying around in their toy flying saucers and trying to capture your rocket toy vehicle with “The Claw.”
Toy Story Land is only part of the big changes happening at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will open late 2019, and Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway will open in time for Walt Disney World’s 50th anniversary. Plus, the name change of the park!
