Toy Story Land opening this summer at Disney World
Blast off to infinity and beyond beginning this summer. Toy Story Land, one of the more highly anticipated attractions coming to Disney World in Orlando, Florida, finally has an opening date: June 30.
The big announcement came on Friday, when Woody, Buzz, Jessie, and Slinky Dog hit up Good Morning America.
Inspired by Pixar’s Toy Story films, the latest addition at Disney’s Hollywood Studios features a Slinky Dog Dash rollercoaster, the twirly Alien Swirling Saucers ride based on Sid’s favorite “The Claw” game, and an expanded version of 3D-shooting ride Toy Story Mania!, featuring three tracks.
Toy Story Land, resting on 11 acres of land, will be filled with giant Crayons, Cooties, Green Army Men, Rubik’s Cubes, Tinkertoys, and other attractions that celebrate Toy Story. Bonus: Woody’s Lunch Box will serve food and refreshments from a walk-up window.
Disney is also planning on launching a Guardians of the Galaxy-themed roller coaster — “one of the world’s longest enclosed roller coasters” — at EPCOT’s Future World. The ride is expected to open in 2021, while Disney’s Animal Kingdom recently opened its Avatar-based world of Pandora attraction last year.
