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.

The claw!
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!
