Toy Story Land brings the stories and characters from Pixar Animation Studios’ “Toy Story” films to life in a whole new way at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Andy’s turned his backyard into a theme park for Woody, Buzz Lightyear and all his other favorite toys, and we’re invited to play along!

When you explore this vibrant land, you feel like you’re the size of a toy, with stacks of blocks towering above you, festive lights strung overhead and even benches are made from popsicle sticks! The land’s three attractions – Slinky Dog Dash, Toy Story Mania! and Alien Swirling Saucers – offer fun for the whole family as you immersive yourself in the stories of your favorite toys.

Today we’re taking you “Behind the Magic” of Toy Story Land to learn more about this special place and how it helped transform Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Watch the video below to hear from Pam Rawlins, executive producer for Walt Disney Imagineering, and Roger Gould, creative director for Pixar Animation Studios’ theme park team, as they discuss everything from the land’s creative vision to how they added more “Slinkification” to Slinky Dog Dash. You’ll also get to see some amazing images of Toy Story Land in development.  

As you can see, Toy Story Land is full of #DisneyMagicMoments all its own, and we’re thrilled to share this one with you today. For more moments like these, keep checking back with us here at the Disney Parks Blog.
