Walt Disney World Cast Members to Test Slinky Dog Dash at Toy Story Land

We are all getting extremely excited for the official opening of Toy Story Land on June 30th, 2018.  The new, immersive Toy Story-themed land is set to officially open at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Walt Disney World.  So far there haven’t been any previews for Cast Members or Annual Passholders, which Disney frequently does for the opening of new lands and attractions.  It looks like Cast Members will finally get their chance to at least check out Slinky Dog Dash.  There is a limited testing event for Cast Members scheduled for June 14th through 18th.  This is the only advanced preview opportunity that we have seen so far, so we aren’t sure if this will be the only one offered and guests will just have to wait until the official opening to check it out!

With the opening of this new land brings us two new attractions Slinky Dog Dash and Alien Swirling Saucers.  Toy Story Mania! will also be open with all three ride tracks.  There is also the addition of the dining location, Woody’s Lunch Box, and retail shopping experiences where guests will be able to find a variety of different Toy Story items for sale.  The story behind the land is that guests will “shrink” to the size of a toy and become toys in Andy’s Backyard.  Guests will get a look at what it would be like to be a toy roaming around Andy’s backyard with all of his other games and toys, plus sightings of some of our favorite Toy Story characters.

Who will be checking out Toy Story Land this summer?

About Christy Caby

I am a long time Disney addict! This love began as a child and stayed with me in my teen years. I completed the Disney College Program, was engaged and honeymooned at Disney, visited WDW while pregnant with each of our two boys, and have brought our boys since they were babies (they are now 5 and 2). We have over 10 Disney World vacations under our belt. Our recent adventure was a big move from St. Louis, MO to Florida! We knew that we needed more Disney magic that just a couple times of year, and we worked hard to make it happen! Now we hit the parks almost every weekend! We are working to dine at every location, experience every attraction and look for every hidden Mickey! We want to be able to say that we have one it all! We are branching into the Cruise Line and are planning a trip to Disneyland in California next year. To say that we are Disney addicts may be an understatement. When I am not at WDW with my family, I am reading Disney blogs and news, crafting (usually Disney décor for our home), planning Disney vacations for others or working on my dissertation for my doctoral program. I am a Project Manager by profession, so I have mastered fitting everything into a tight schedule! We feel we lead an exciting life where we get to spend a lot of time together doing what we love! I love being able to this love and Disney magic with everyone else so that others can make the most of whatever time they get to have at the most magical place on earth!
