Everything you need to know about Disney World's new Toy Story Land. Includes information about the rides, characters and restaurant.


Toy Story Land: Everything You Need to Know

Toy Story Land, opening June 30, 2018, is the first of two brand new lands coming to Hollywood Studios. The approximately 11 acre addition will include three rides, opportunities for character interactions and a new quick service dining location.

When visiting Toy Story Land, you will “shrink” down to the size of a toy and enter Andy’s backyard. There you will be able to play with some of the creations he has made and interact with some of his other toys.

Rides and Attractions

Slinky Dog Dash (new)

This family friendly roller-coaster type ride has been made by Andy with his Mega Coaster Play Kit. Hop aboard Slinky Dog and take a tour of the backyard!

This ride has a height requirement of 38 inches and will likely be a Tier One FastPass ride. Rider Switch is available.

Alien Swirling Saucers (new)

Climb into a flying saucer of your very own as the Aliens from the Toy Story movies bring you into space. Lucky guests may even be chosen by The Claw!

This spinning ride has a height requirement of 32 inches and will likely be a Tier One FastPass ride. Rider Switch is offered.

Toy Story Mania

Shrink down to the size of a toy and take part in one of Andy’s video games. Some of the characters from Toy Story appear as you shoot at moving targets in this 4D ride. There will be a new entrance through a carnival game box for Toy Story Mania once Toy Story Land opens. This popular ride has had a third track added to accommodate additional guests.

Toy Story Mania ride is for guests of all heights and all ages. It is a Tier One FastPass ride.

New FastPass+ Tiers?

Along with plenty of excitement, the opening of Toy Story Land on June 30 is likely to bring about a change in the tiered system of FastPass+ rides offered at Hollywood Studios. The new tiers will likely be as follows:

Tier 1

  • Alien Swirling Saucers (new)
  • Slinky Dog Dash (new)
  • Toy Story Mania (current Tier 1 attraction)

Tier 2

  • Beauty and the Beast – Live on Stage (current Tier 1 attraction)
  • Disney Junior Live on Stage
  • Fantasmic! (current Tier 1 attraction)
  • For the First Time in Forever: A Frozen Sing-Along Celebration
  • Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular
  • Muppet*Vision 3D
  • Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster (current Tier 1 attraction)
  • Star Tours
  • Twilight Zone Tower of Terror
  • Voyage of the Little Mermaid

Guests are able to reserve a total of three FastPasses per day in one park. In Hollywood Studios, this means you can reserve one FastPass from Tier 1 and two FastPasses from Tier 2 (or 3 FastPasses from Tier 2).

Meet the Characters

While in Andy’s backyard, make sure to meet Sheriff Woody, Buzz Lightyear and Jessie the Yodeling Cowgirl (and possibly other characters too). It is rumored that they will be walking around Toy Story Land interacting with guests.

  1. Was really looking forward to Woody’s Lunchbox. Hollywood Studios has the worst dining selections of all the parks, so we’ll usually leave it to eat someplace else. But, alas, this one will also be one of those not-worth-it quick service restaurants. It’s such a shame they didn’t put the thought and effort into the dining as they did to the rest of Toy Story Land.

    1. I was hoping they would bring back pizza planet. I’m disappointed. Was also hoping Mr potatohead kiosk would return ?

  2. I’m an annual passholder and I can’t wait for this! I didn’t realize they were changing the tier system so that is good to know. Andy’s lunchbox sounds adorable and the food sounds delicious!
