It’s official! Toy Story Land, 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. Here, guests can take a ride on Slinky Dog Dash, a roller coaster Andy has assembled from his Mega Coaster Play Kit and topped off with Slinky and Jessie. (Check out the time-lapse video above of one of Slinky Dog Dash’s first test runs).

Families will also be able to take a spin on Alien Swirling Saucers, a galactic play set that Andy won from Pizza Planet. Here, adorable little green aliens swirl about in their flying saucers with guests in tow in their rocket ship toys, while “The Claw” hangs overhead.

Guests can also walk through a new carnival game box to experience Toy Story Mania!, which has been a guest-favorite attraction at the park since it opened in 2008. Now expanded with a third track, the popular attraction will put even more guests in the action taking aim at 3D objects – using everything from baseballs to cream pies – in a variety of whimsical, fast-paced games.

Woody’s Lunch Box – actually, Andy’s lunch box that he’s set on its side – will serve up tasty meals and old-fashioned soda floats from a walk-up window setting. The entire land will serve as a visual celebration of toys, with Crayons, Cooties, Green Army Men, Rubik’s Cubes, Tinkertoys, and other familiar toys and game pieces incorporated into the land’s design.

So, which attraction are you most excited to see when the land opens this June? Tell us in the “Comments” section below.


  • Can’t wait for this to open. Will there be an annual passholder preview? I really hope so.

    • No word on any previews yet.

  • Am looking so forward to the news Toys Story Land my son grew up on it and it’s his favorite movie. Hoping that there will be a preview day for pass holders.

    • We hope you enjoy it!

  • Disappointed that this opening will be after our vacation at the beginning of June. I wish Disney would open June 1 instead.

  • I’m excited for Slinky! He was always my favorite! Can’t wait to take the family!!!

    • 🙂

  • Any updates if there will be a passholder preview, like what was done with Pandora?

  • i am hoping they do the passholder preview. super excited can’t wait

  • Having been a pass holder for 14 years my wife and I would love to experience a pass holder preview. We often dress up as Woody and Jessie at the annual Halloween Party. Waiting for the new movie!

  • Would be really nice for a passholder preview. Have read that Toy Story Land is behind schedule and that there might not be a preview. I will be ready if there is a preview and make the 15 hr drive. Slinky Dog Dash looks so amazing. If no preview I will wait until late Sept.

  • It’s too bad they decided against reimagining Pizza Planet. That would have really made it special. My kids have been asking about Pizza Planet for a while and we would love to take them, but alas, it is not to be.

  • Is there gonna be a soft opening for passholders like they did for pandora?

  • We will be in HS end of july. Will we be able to took rides for toystoryland the 60 days in advance?

  • hi! please let me know… Which resorts are fast passes allowed for toy story land?

  • For me, I think it’s Slinky Dog!

  • Looking forward to that roller coaster for sure! Our Toy Story Mania championship belt will be on the line, as usual, and I’m going to try not to get scolded by the Green Army Men this time around, too.
