On Saturday 30th June, Disney officially unveiled their brand new Toy Story Land. Fans have been eagerly awaiting the opening of the 11-acre expansion for some time, but now the wait is finally over, and you can explore this amazing new land for yourself.
Our Florida experts attended the media preview and were lucky enough to be some of the first to explore the new land and try out the amazing attractions. Check out the video below for a closer look…
The main Toy Story characters were out in full force for the opening day celebrations, with Buzz, Woody and Jessie welcoming guests, while the green army men patrolled the park. All three characters will now be in Toy Story Land every day meeting guests, and you’ll even be able to catch the green army men performing a drum march at regular intervals throughout the day.
Toy Story Land has three amazing attractions in total- two brand new rides and one fan favourite. Slinky Dog Dash is a new family-friendly coaster that sends you zooming around the track on the back of the lovable Slinky Dog. Alien Swirling Saucers is the area’s second new attraction. On this fun-filled ride, you’ll spin through outer space as an intergalactic soundtrack blasts through the speakers.
If you’ve been to Disney’s Hollywood Studios before, we’re sure you’ll be familiar with the popular Toy Story Mania ride. This is a firm favourite with guests and once you try it yourself, you’ll realise why. Join your friends and family and compete against one another in a 4D carnival shooting game. Whoever gets the highest score will be crowned champion!
Once you’ve worked up an appetite on the incredible rides, head over to ‘Woody’s Lunch Box’ for a tasty Toy Story- themed treat. There’s lots of delicious snacks on the menu, including S’mores French toast (perfect for breakfast), a mouth-watering BBQ Brisket Melt and one of our favourites-the grilled three-cheese sandwich, made with provolone, cheddar cheese and cream cheese, served on garlic buttered artisan French bread. Sounds good, right?
Need something to quench your thirst? There’s a range of great-tasting, traditional soda floats, or for something a bit different, try the Mystic Portal Punch. This bright green drink is a mixture of Powerade Mountain Berry Blast and lemon-lime and tangerine flavours. You can get this in a souvenir cup (for an extra cost) which has a miniature alien inside! Make sure you take a photo before you drink it
