4 Cool Facts About Toy Story Land

Here are 4 cool facts that we already know about Toy Story Land and the plans for what will be included in the project:


4. Set in Andy’s backyard.

We all love the Toy Story “universe” and the story that the movies tell. The theme for the entire land is going to be set in Andy’s backyard, which gives Disney a lot to work with in helping to make us feel like we are toys walking around a backyard environment. I think this was the perfect choice to create an immersive experience and be able to completely follow through with the experience that we expect to see. I can’t wait to see it all done and see some of our favorite characters become even more real to us in this land.

3. Expanded Toy Story Midway Mania.

Toy Story Midway Mania is one of the most popular attractions in all of Walt Disney World. The lines rarely get below an hour long at any point during the day and usually see higher than that. The ride is great for all ages, innovative and fun and makes you feel like you have stepped right into the movie. What’s not to love? The great news is that they recently expanded the ride and adding another track! This means that they have another section to load guests and are able to put more and more guests on the ride each day. We’re very glad that they added this track!

2. Slinky-dog roller coaster.

Slinky-dog is definitely a favorite character from the films who was there for all of the movies thus far. He has always been one of Woody’s close friends and has been able to use his stretching abilities to help the other toys out of tough spots. In Toy Story Land, the imagineers have plans to create a family-friendly roller coaster that has you feeling like you are going for a ride with your buddy Slinky-dog. I sure can’t wait to see what they do with it, and the concept has HUGE potential to be a major success.


1. Alien spinning saucer ride.

I don’t know what it is about those lovable green aliens that we first found in the claw game at Pizza Planet, but we just love them! They have become a member of the Toy Story family and the fact that they are making a ride based on them really is great fun! I do question how they are going to tie a claw game into “Andy’s Backyard”, but if anybody can tie it all together, it is definitely the Disney Imagineers. The concept is that it is a spinning saucer ride that will also have “The Claw” reaching to snatch it’s next alien. I can’t wait to tempt fate with the claw!

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
