We capped off another great week of storytelling on the Disney Parks Blog with an exciting update that the highly-anticipated toy-filled land inspired by the beloved “Toy Story” films, will open to guests at Disney’s Hollywood Studios June 30, 2018.

When it opens, guests visiting Toy Story Land will “shrink” to the size of a toy and join in on the fun Woody, Jessie, Buzz, and Andy’s other beloved toys are having in Andy’s backyard. Along with the announcement this week, we shared time-lapse video of one of Slinky Dog Dash’s first test runs.
