When Toy Story Land opened at Disney’s Hollywood Studios earlier today, thousands of excited guests were ready and waiting to be among the first to “play big” in Andy’s backyard!

Excited guests flooded into the land, eager to ride on Slinky Dog Dash, spin on Alien Swirling Saucers, and play their way through Toy Story Mania! Also on many guest must-do lists: stop at Woody’s Lunch Box for a tasty snack, and of course, grab some character photos as well.

Check out the images above for a look at some of the first guests to ever step into the land.

Many guests also showed their enthusiasm for the land’s opening by wearing “Toy Story”-themed attire. Keep your eye on the Disney Parks Blog Instagram account later today for a look at some of the fun!


  • I’m very disappointed in how Disney handled the opening of Toy Story Land. We made plans to be at the park by 7:30 Saturday morning so my family and I could be there for the grand opening. Then late Friday we found out that the dedication had taken place earlier in the day. If we had known we would have made plans to be there. To make things worse both the website and the app showed the park opening at 8:00. We were there by 7:40 and found the park had opened at 6:00. My family and I are annual pass-holds and we spend a lot of money with Disney, to not be notified of either of these was extremely disappointing. Once in the park we were told it was a two hour wait just to get into the land. Later we were told we didn’t need to wait in line and that the line was only for Slinky Dog Dash. My wife went straight into the shops at 8:00 to try and get pins and shirts. She was told that they were already out of pins and had no shirts with the opening date of Toy Story Land. For the amount of time Disney to prepare this was probably the worst opening event ever.

  • WOW! Looks like TONS of FUN!!!!
