LAKE BUENA VISTA, FL - Toy Story Land, inspired by the Pixar Animation Studios series of Toy Story films opens at Hollywood Studios at the Walt Disney World Resort. Upon entering the land, which is actually Andy's backyard, guests find themselves in the role of being 'honorary toys' so they can play big in a world of a child's imagination.
Sheriff Woody, standing nearly 20 feet tall, welcomes guests to Toy Story Land at the entrance to the land. He, and Jessie, Buzz Lightyear, Slinky Dog, Green Army Men and other Toy Story characters come to life in the world of toys. Guests will find themselves dwarfed by giant building blocks, Tinkertoys, yo-yos, board-game pieces, dominoes, Scrabble tiles, and even a giant roller coaster set. The entire land encourages the best playtime ever.
Toy Story Land includes two all-new attractions and a new entrance for an enduring favorite. Guests hop on Slinky Dog for a family-friendly roller coaster ride, take a spin with the little green Aliens from Pizza Planet and go for the high score in midway games populated by beloved Toy Story toys.
Toy Story Land also celebrates what defines entertainment for kids of all ages. Crayola crayons, a Rubik’s Cube, Cooties, and other toys and games pour on the nostalgia for park-goers – and fascinate young ones. With building blocks around every corner, there are lampposts shaped like Tinkertoys and benches built from Lincoln Logs and K’nex pieces. A balsa-wood glider, a Barrel of Monkeys, giant playing cards and jacks add to the visual tapestry of the new land.
“With set pieces, staging, attractions and experiences, Toy Story Land represents the best of Walt Disney Imagineering’s collaboration with our storytelling partners at Pixar Animation Studios,” said Bob Chapek, Chairman of Disney Parks, Experiences and Consumer Products. “This new land will place guests inside the wondrous world of Woody, Buzz and their pals – and invite everyone to experience the joy of being a toy.”
