“You’ve Got a Friend in Me.” New Concept Art and Video for ‘Toy Story Land’ at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

TSL Overview

Toy Story Land  will be one of a few new additions to Disney’s Hollywood Studios.  While there is no official opening date for this new Land, that doesn’t mean the marketing for the new attractions stop here.  In fact, Disney is just getting started.  

Slinky Dog Dash

Disney has unveiled a brand new sneak peek for one of their newer attractions soon to debut in  Toy Story Land:  Slinky Dog Dash.  This family coaster will travel all throughout Andy’s backyard, and give guests an experience of a lifetime.  According to Imagineer Kathy Magnum, Andy has personally built this track himself with his Mega Coaster Play Kit, while using a variety of his toys to bring it to life.

Disney has released a video that gives a POV perspective while riding this attraction.  You can check out this video below: 

This coaster looks like a ton of fun.  The coaster perfectly fits with the theme of Andy’s backyard and Slinky Dog is a great character choice to make this attraction a reality.  Guests will have a blast as they travel around the ENTIRE  Toy Story Land  area while feeling that they themselves are well, toys.

Alien Swirling Saucers

Alien Swirling Saucers in Toy Story Land at Disney's Hollywood Studios

“The Claw!” How many of you remember that line from the first  Toy Story  film?  Well, it’s about to become a reality and YOU are a part of the action.  Taken from the famous pizzeria known as  Pizza Planet,  it appears that guests will be able to control their own vehicle that resembles a toy flying saucer or satellite.  Guests are tasked with avoiding the aliens who control “The Claw” by dancing/swirling to the “space jazz” music.

Based on the picture above, there will be two attractions that will go at the same time to cut down the wait time for the attraction.  This is similar to what they did to the Dumbo attraction in the Storybook Circus section located in the Magic Kingdom.      

Alien Swirling Saucers looks like a fun, interactive adventure for all guests.  I always wanted to see something resembling the  Pizza Planet  scene from the film.  This could very well do it justice and I cannot wait for this attraction to open!

Toy Story Midway Mania Gets an Extra Track!

This may not seem like a big deal, but trust me IT IS.  Toy Story Midway Mania  ALWAYS has one of the longest queue lines throughout the Walt Disney World property.  This ride debuted at  Disney’s Hollywood Studios  in 2008 and still has a very long line.  It’s nearly impossible to get a FastPass for this attraction as guests will snatch those up months in advance.

The attraction is one of my personal favorites but will usually have a wait time somewhere between 60 and 90 minutes.  It hardly ever goes below 60 minutes, but this third track should certainly stop some of the bleeding.  This will hopefully cut the wait time down by half which would be nice and allow other guests to experience this attraction with or without a FastPass.

So those are a few new attractions we can expect to see in the coming future.  How excited are you for  Toy Story Land?  Which attraction are you anticipating more?  Please let me know in the comment section below!
