The area opened on June 30, 2018 and is located on the former site of the Earffel Tower.

The land features two new attractions: Slinky Dog Dash and Alien Swirling Saucers. In addition, the existing attraction Toy Story Mania! has been expanded and re-themed to suit the new area.

Toy Story Land also features several themed elements, including giant toys (like a giant Buzz Lightyear), oversized building blocks, and green army men stationed throughout the area.

In fact, it is worth highlighting that it is one of the areas with the greatest thematization and detail among the Disney parks, exactly as Galaxy's Edge and Pandora.

What attractions in Toy Story Land

As mentioned above, Toy Story Land introduces two new attractions: Slinky Dog Dash and Alien Swirling Saucers.

Slinky Dog Dash is a family-friendly roller coaster that takes riders through Andy's backyard.

The tour features several twists and turns, as well as a few surprises along the way.

Alien Swirling Saucers is a spinning ride that takes place within the game “The Claw” from the Toy Story movies. Pilots will be spun to music from the movies as they try to avoid being captured by the Claw.

In addition to these two new attractions, Toy Story Mania! has been expanded and re-themed and is even more fun.

The attraction is a 4D shooter where pilots compete against each other to see who can get the highest score.

Finally, there are plenty of opportunities to meet characters from the Toy Story films throughout the day.

Characters such as Woody, Jessie, Buzz Lightyear and others are available for photos and autographs.
