Andy’s backyard just got a whole lot busier, because the brand-new Toy Story Land is now open at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Walt Disney World.
As of this evening, the new Toy Story Land at Disney’s Hollywood Studios theme park has soft opened to guests. As with all soft openings, attractions may close or become unavailable at any time. The land is scheduled to officially open to the public on Saturday, June 30, 2018.
The new Toy Story Land at Walt Disney World Resort, inspired by Pixar Animation Studios’ Toy Story films, turns guests of all ages into “honorary toys” and allows them to play in Andy’s backyard with Woody, Jessie, Buzz Lightyear, Slinky Dog, Green Army Men and friends. A world of toys surrounds guests: giant building blocks, Tinkertoys, yo-yos, board-game pieces, dominoes, Scrabble tiles, and even a giant roller coaster set.
Watch the grand opening ceremony, which was held on the morning of June 29, in this video:
The 11-acre expansion, which was first announced in 2015, joins other Toy Story Lands that have opened at Walt Disney Studios Paris, Hong Kong Disneyland, and Shanghai Disneyland. Toy Story Land includes two new rides and a new entrance for an existing attraction. Guests hop on Slinky Dog for a family-friendly roller coaster ride, take a spin with the little green Aliens from Pizza Planet, and go for the high score in Toy Story Mania.
