New Aerial Footage Shows Just How Magical Toy Story Land Will Be When It Opens This Weekend
Get ready to feel like a kid again.
The daytime flyover gives you a peek at some of the main attractions that will be included in the multi-acre park-within-a-park.
This includes the anticipated Slinky Dog Dash, a rollercoaster Andy assembled with his Mega Coaster Play Kit that includes a giant Slinky whose coils twist across the mega-toys that line the park.
Since the park is made to make you feel like you're miniature as you walk through Andy’s backyard, you’ll be greeted by giant statues of popular characters from the series, massive straws and toys, and larger-than-life footprints that line the floors.
Some of the rides are located inside tipped-over toy boxes, while playful touches include benches made out of colorful wooden popsicle sticks and kid-themed dishes like a raspberry lunch box tart at Woody’s Lunchbox restaurant.
Additional attractions include the Alien Swirling Saucers, themed after the film's toy aliens and Pizza Planet, where riders board a rocket to try and be chosen by “the claw,” and Toy Story Mania, a 4-D shooting game starring the Toy Story characters.
The Sarge and his Green Army Man Drum Corps will also make an appearance throughout the park multiple times a day to invite guests to play games with giant Pixar balls and crayons.
The new land is the biggest expansion Hollywood Studios has seen since its opening in 1989 so far, Disney creative executive director Dave Minichiello told the Orlando Sentinel, and comes before the 2019 opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.
