Take a Peek into Toy Story Land

Agent Maci here and today I wanted to take you into the new addition to Disney's Hollywood Studios, Toy Story Land!

Toy Story Land brought two new attractions, Slinky Dog Dash and Alien Swirling Saucers, and a new restaurant, Woody's Lunch Box, to the park in a larger than life play-set. The addition of this part of the park also moves the entrance to Toy Story Mania into the new land.

If you go at any busy time of year in the morning, the crowds will head in mass to Toy Story Land to ride Slinky Dog Dash, and it will stay busy throughout the day. But with good reason, the land is themed great and the rides are fun for the whole family!

As you enter the area, you are greeted by a larger than life Woody. Often throughout the day there is also a PhotoPass photographer set up here to capture your family at the entrance! If you stand around and listen, you'll hear some key catch phrases from the sheriff himself!

The major draw here is the new Slinky Dog Dash attraction, which is a family-friendly coaster.  The line might be long, but the queue has a lot of fun theming and if you download the Play Disney App you can see the game Andy designed for his toys and play along! We had a great time taking in the details and playing the game to help pass the time.

The other new attraction is Alien Swirling Saucers which is another fun for all ages ride. The aliens take you on a ride twisting and turning around the game.

After all that excitement it's easy to work up an appetite for lunch. We headed over to Woody's Lunch Box to grab some sandwiches, sit, and have a break from the crowds. We got 3 grilled cheeses (the kids grilled cheese is half a sandwich) with the sides of potato barrels or tomato-basil soup and a bbq brisket melt. For a grilled cheese, we were very impressed with these. The BBQ brisket melt also had a lot of great flavors and a nice amount of meat. We also gave the Grown-Up's Lemonade a try while we were here which was a great refreshing summer drink.

If all that excitement wasn't already enough to have you ready to explore Toy Story Land, I saved my favorite part for last! While we were there, we saw the Green Army Men patrolling the area several times and it was so fun to see them go by. Sometimes they had Pixar balls and sometimes they had drums, you just never knew what to expect and I loved that you could enjoy it from near or far.

Also included in Toy Story Land are Toy Story character meet and greets including Buzz Lightyear, Woody and Jessie. The lines for these characters can get very long so be sure to plan accordingly. Finally there are bathrooms behind Woody's Lunch Box that are big, new and relatively nice.

Have you explored Toy Story Land yet? What was your favorite part?  Let us know in the comments below!

5 Ways To Get Psyched For Your Disney Trip!

Hey-Howdy-Hey, Disney Guys and Gals!      Is anyone familiar with Barney Stinson's "Get Psyched" Mix? Anyone? How I Met your Mother Fans? Ok, great! So you totally get where I'm going with this! If you have no idea what I am talking about, you can watch a clip  HERE!  Basically, the theory is that no matter what's going on in your life, you can get yourself psyched up and ready for something awesome to happen, all by listening to the right piece of music. Playing off of that theory, I feel that one of the very best things about a Disney trip is actually  preparing  for it, or getting psyched! You can have a whole bunch of crappy stuff happening in your life at the time, but if you have a Disney trip on the horizon... even if it's 564 days away, you have something to look forward to and enjoy preparing yourself for. In fact, many Disney fans, (myself included), pretty much get from one day to the next by preparing for upcoming trips. You may even book a ne

Royal Caribbean - Taste of Sabor Experience

I recently sailed on Royal Caribbean Cruise Line's Liberty of the Seas for my Honeymoon.  The trip itself was quite amazing, but we had a special dinner at Sabor that wasn't on any pre-planning options.  While at dinner at the Chef's Table earlier in our cruise, a nice gentleman from Sabor came by and told us about a similar experience they were trying out at that restaurant.  Of course we decided we had to give it a try! We got the menu to look over and our host for the night came to greet us and go through what to expect etc. This was a new thing they were trying, so we didn't really know much about it going in other than "if you liked the Chef Table, come try this!" He was wonderful, and we had a great time with him. We were at a big table off to the side as you went in (our whole Chef's Table party decided to go for this, so we were old friends at this point!) The table was semi-private, but still somewhat part of the normal dining area so we could pee

Topolino's Terrace Breakfast Review

Breakfast at Topolino's has been getting quite the hype since it opened, so I was thrilled when I snagged a reservation with my fellow Agent Maci on our trip to celebrate Magic Kingdom's 50th birthday. This restaurant is located on the 10th floor of Disney's Riviera Resort, the newest to open on Walt Disney World property. The d├ęcor is modern and bright, with floor to ceiling windows and a balcony to continue to take in the views right outside. Breakfast is a character dining experience, with Mickey and friends being dressed in their artsy best! Park attire is welcome, but you could just as easily get a little fancy and feel comfortable. We were told it would be about 10 minutes so we went to the bar where I ordered a Bellini and Maci got a Mimosa, light on the OJ! The excellent bartender barely had time to make our drinks before our table was ready. We were quickly greeted by our server Chris from Orlando and we're pretty sure we found the OG! For
