History

Toy Story Land was initially announced on August 15, 2015 at the D23 Expo as a new land coming to Disney's Hollywood Studios [1]. At this time, Disney stated: Template:Quoation

In addition to the aformentioned Toy Story Mania, Imagineer Kathy Mangum announced that two new attractions would fill out the land. The first the Slinky Dog coaster, a family roller coaster. The second announced attraction was the Alien Swirling Saucer attraction, a spinning attraction similar to Manyard's Junkyard Jamboree in Disneyland.

When Disney released new concept art for Toy Story Land in April of 2016, there were some notable differences. Some of the more elaborate scenes on the Slinky Dog Coaster had been cut. During this period it seems as if Al's Toy Barn and a Woody themed western area were cut from the plan [2].

After a series of "soft openings" Toy Story Land officially opened to guests on June 30, 2018 [3]. In addition to the land's three main attractions- Slinky Dog Dash, Alien Swirling Saucers and Toy Story Mania, Toy Story Land also houses Woody's Lunch Box, a quick service restaurant which features Mini Babybel products.

Attractions

Slinky Dog Dash-On this family coaster, guests an ride around Andy's backyard on a track built from his Mega Coaster Play Kit. Along the way, they see many familiar faces including Wheezy, Rex, Jesse and more!

Toy Story Midway Mania!- A 4D attraction that lets guests play classic Midway games in a whole new way. Featuring characters from the Toy Story franchise, this attraction allows guests to actually enter midway games while they play them.

Alien Swirling Saucers-Set inside a playset that Andy won at Pizza Planet, guests can board their flying saucers for a spin through space.
