Today, Walt Disney Presents, a re-imagined version of the One Man’s Dream attraction at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, officially opens its doors to offer a new look at the past, present and future of Disney Parks.
One of the exciting pieces of the “future” that Walt Disney Presents showcases is a model of the park’s Toy Story Land expansion, which will be on display for guests to view starting today.
The Toy Story Land expansion, which will open in Summer 2018, will shrink guests to the size of a toy and allow them to explore all the fun of Andy’s backyard, which as you can see in these images, has been delightfully filled with familiar toys and sights from the “Toy Story” films.
You can also see some of the charming detail our Imagineers have created for this new land and its two major attractions – Slinky Dog Dash and Alien Swirling Saucers.
The Slinky Dog Dash attraction will be a family coaster themed as if Andy used his Mega Coaster Play Kit to build the ultimate coaster for Slinky. The land’s other major attraction, Alien Swirling Saucers, has been designed as a toy play set that Andy got from Pizza Planet, in which Aliens are flying around in their toy flying saucers and trying to capture guests’ rocket toy vehicles with “The Claw.”
But the Toy Story Land model isn’t the only exciting draw to Walt Disney Presents. Tracing Disney history from Walt Disney’s beginning sketches, photos and storyboards, the attraction celebrates milestones in Disney film and theme park history up through today and beyond. Expect to see models, maquettes, sketches, artist renderings, a portion of the Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge model, concept art for the new Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway attraction and more.
Walt Disney Presents will also continue to host greetings with characters like Star-Lord and baby Groot, plus special sneak previews of upcoming Disney films. Check you My Disney Experience app for the latest.
When will the opening date be announced ?
We are DVC members and we are coming home during the beginning of June! Any chance that Toy Story Land will be opened to the public or members at that time?! My son is so excited about it!
Where do we go in Hollywood Studios to find this attraction? We are especially looking forward to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge model!
It replaced One Man’s Dream at the park.
Seeing the new model is so exciting, my family and can’t wait for Toy Story Land! There doesn’t seem to be a meet and greet structure in there, though – will the characters be outside, visiting with guests? We hope Jessie will be there, along with Buzz and Woody – we miss seeing her in Frontierland so much!
We’ll have much more to announce in the coming months! Stay tuned. 😉
It looks really cute! Love all attention to detail.
Me too! So many fun colors and toys. This will be a great place to take fun photos.
