Toy Story Land
Announced at the D23 Expo in 2015, Toy Story Land will be built at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. This 11-acre area, which is located behind Walt Disney Presents takes guests into the world of a toy through Andy’s backyard.
Amid a colorful landscape filled with giant building blocks and game board pieces, Guests are immersed in an experience straight out of Andy’s imagination—together with Woody, Buzz, Slinky Dog, Rex, the Aliens and many other beloved Toy Story characters. In Toy Story Land, when Guests step inside this world, they shrink down to the size of a toy and join Toy Story friends for fun that never ends.
This land, themed around the popular Pixar film includes a family-friendly roller coaster, called Slinky Dog Dash, where guests ride on the back of Slinky Dog as you glide past some of Andy’s toys. In addition there is an alien saucers attraction where Guests will experience music, lighting sound effects, and yes, The Claw will loom over you called Alien Swirling Saucers.
