Get ready cowboys and cowgirls, because we don’t have much longer to wait for Toy Story Land to open! That’s right, the film that introduced us to the beautiful minds of Pixar is finally getting it’s own theme park.
Yep, you got a friend in me, because I’m about to tell you all about this amazing dream-like place. Rides include the Slinky Dog Dash, Alien Swirling Saucers and Toy Story Mania! (they added the exclamation point, not me).
Here’s what their website has to say about Slinky Dog Dash:
“Andy’s assembled his Mega Coaster Play Kit—and Slinky Dog is gonna take you on a wild, toy-filled adventure. Come along for a roller-coaster-style ride as he bends and twists and stretches his way all throughout this new land.”
It looks like the Swirling Saucers ride is just a Toy Story spin on bumper cars, but if you can scream, “YOU HAVE SAVED OUR LIVES, WE ARE ETERNALLY GRATEFUL,” then I’m all in.
Next you have Toy Story Mania! and this seems to be a spin on the classic laser shooting game. In their words, it’s a 4D shootin’ game starring popular characters.
Now if you take you and your family there, you will probably be pretty hungry for overpriced food. There’s nothing you can really do about it, so embrace it at Woody’s Lunch Box!
According to their website it sounds pretty fun also:
“Lasso your hunger with a meal from Woody’s Lunch Box—opening soon for breakfast, lunch and dinner!
During your upcoming Toy Story Land adventures, be sure to drop by this food stop for a toy-riffic meal. Dishing out all sorts of tasty treats for “honorary toys,” Woody’s Lunch Box features classic American fare, old-fashioned soda floats and other Toy Story-themed specialties.”
From their images on the website though, it seems like they are serving up glorified pop tarts? I guess I’ll have to just go to give a proper review.
So when’s it opening?! Well good news partners, it’s coming this June 30th! It will be at Disney World, aka the Florida one. Take a look below, Good Morning America got a first look at the attraction and it looks like so much fun, no matter what age you are!
So maybe Florida is too far for you? Well if you were already planning on going to Disney Land (the California one) you can still have some Toy Story nostalgia. This past April, they opened “Alien’s Pizza Planet – A Better Place.” It replaced the Red Rose Taverne, and it’s supposed to be temporary but…the Tavern was there for over a year and that was originally slated to be temporary.
From what I’m seeing on Instagram, it looks like a whole lot of fun. There’s nothing more I wanted to do than go to a real Pizza Planet after watching the original Toy Story.
Of course I hope none of you run into Sid while you’re there. It even looks healthy, are those cucumbers on a dang pizza?!
Anyways, if you are planning the family trip to either Disney park, you will be able to have some Toy Story fun for sure!
