Fans got a sneak peek at one of the attractions when Disney brought a piece of it to New York City to celebrate the opening day announcement. Slinky Dog Dash took over the famed Times Square, as a preview of the 11-acre Toy Story Land and to kick off the opening day news.
In Slinky Dog Dash, guests will be shrunk down to the size of a small toy and will then be surrounded by giant versions of childhood toys. Guests will embark on a ride through twists, coils, curves, and drops all around toy land.
Slinky Dog Dash is just one of many attractions fans will get to experience in Disney World’s Toy Story Land. Walt Disney Parks and Resorts chairman, Bob Chapek, released a statement about the highly anticipated attraction.
“With set pieces, staging, attractions and experiences Toy Story Land represents the best of Walt Disney Imagineering’s collaboration with our storytelling partners at Pixar Animation Studios. This new land will place guests inside the wondrous world of Woody, Buzz and their pals and invite everyone to experience the joy of being a toy,” he shared in an official press release.
Toy Story Land will take place in the landscape of Andy’s backyard. Another attraction fans will enjoy is Alien Swirling Saucers, where guests will get the chance to fly through space on a toy rocket ship. Woody's Lunch Box is where families will be able stop to grab a bite to eat as they enjoy their day. It is a walk up window serving old-fashioned food and treats.
June 30th is the official opening day of Toy Story Land at Disney World. Now over 20 years after the mega-hit movie Toy Story hit theaters, it is still going strong as new generations of fans continue to embrace Andy, Woody, and their friends.
