Toy Story Land to Debut at Walt Disney World in Summer 2018

The soon-to-debut Slinky Dog Dash

The 11-acre Toy Story Land will be unveiled this summer at Disney's Hollywood Studios at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando. The new land will recreate the backyard of Toy Story protagonist Andy, complete with attractions including Slinky Dog Dash, a family-friendly coaster that will "send riders dipping, dodging and dashing around turns and drops"; Alien Swirling Saucers; and Woody's Lunch Box, a quick-service kiosk serving tasty eats and old-fashioned soda floats.

Other new Walt Disney World offerings that will debut this summer include the takeover of Tomorrowland (in the Magic Kingdom) by Disney Pixar super-hero characters from The Incredibles and a dance party on the Rocket Tower Stage, while super heroes from another franchise, Guardians of the Galaxy, will join an "alien" band at the America Gardens Theatre at Epcot this summer.  

In addition, Disney's Animal Kingdom will launch two new experiences in mid-2018: A "dino-tastic" celebration where Donald Duck takes over Dinoland U.S.A.; and Explorers Meet UP! A Great Bird Adventure, where characters from the Disney Pixar film Up discover species of birds from around the world.
