Toy Story Land at Walt Disney World to open next summer / Star Wars Lands to open in 2019
Toy Story Land at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Walt Disney World will officially open in the summer of 2018. In Toy Story Land, you are shrunk to the size of a toy to explore the world of Andy’s backyard with your favorite Toy Story characters, including Woody and Buzz.
It will feature two new attractions. Slinky Dog Dash will be a family coaster attraction where you’ll zip, dodge and dash around many turns and drops that Andy has created to really make Slinky and his coils stretch to his limits.
Alien Swirling Saucers will also be a new attraction at Toy Story Land. It’s designed as a toy play set that Andy got from Pizza Planet, inspired by the first “Toy Story” film. Aliens are flying around in their toy flying saucers and trying to capture your rocket toy vehicle with “The Claw.”
Construction for both Star Wars Lands, officially known as “Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge”, is ongoing at Disneyland and Walt Disney World. Both will open sometime in 2019, with the one at Disneyland opening first. Walt Disney Imagineering executive Scott Trowbridge said “ "Our intent is to make it feel as if you just walked into one of the movies. Bringing Star Wars to life in the physical world gives us the opportunity to play with a whole bunch of things we've never done before.”
