We don’t make it to Florida very often, it’s a little far from AZ, but my family LOVES visiting Walt Disney World. Our trips are not as frequent as I would like, but when we go, we pack a bunch of fun into our week. My family and I recently had the opportunity to visit Walt Disney World and go on a Disney Cruise. I’d say my kids were super excited, but who are we kiding. I was just as excited as the kids! A Disney Cruise just happens to be their most favorite vacation ever! And you can’t go wrong with a trip to Disney anytime.
While we were there we got to hang out with some really amazing folks. 🙂 The kids loved meeting Buzz and Woody. And my daughter had a run in with one of the Green Army Men. Don’t worry, she didn’t get into any trouble.
We also were able to learn about the new Toy Story Land that will be opening in Hollywood Studios June 30, 2018. The kids loved getting this upclose view of the Slinky Dog Dash coaster. Isn’t it so cute!! I just love how incredibly inventive and creative Disney Imagineers are when it comes to designing new lands and rides. They truly bring the Disney Magic EVERYTIME!
Toy Story Land
One of my kids favorite rides is Midway Mania. Toy Story Land will include 2 new rides along with a new entrance to Midway Mania. All the fun will be taking place in Andy’s Backyard. Guests will feel like they are the toys in Andy’s Backyard with all our favorite toy room characters at the same scale. It looks so bright and fun!
The 2 new rides will be Slinky Dog Dash and Alien Swirling Saucers. My son is super excited about Slinky Dog Dash, which is HUGE since he is usually not the first to jump on a rollercoaster. Slinky Dog Dash spans the entire Backyard and dashes above and across the entire land. And there is sure to be some super fun food at Woody’s Lunch Box. It’s sure to be delicious and right on track with the rest of Toy Story Land.
While we were there, we had an opportunity to chat with one of the Disney Imagineers, Ryan, who has worked on bringing Andy’s Backyard and Toy Story Land to life. The kids loved talking with him and hearing all about the new land. Check out the quick video of the kid’s interview with Ryan.
I had to share a picture of the Slinky Dog Dash coaster mock up because of those details. See how his ears are back, just like they should be as he will be speeding along the track.
We can’t wait to make it back to Walt Disney World and check out Toy Story Land. You know we’ll be headed straight to Slinky Dog Dash and picking up a tasty treat at Woody’s Lunch Box.
Are you planning a trip to Walt Disney World this summer? Make sure it’s after June 3oth so you don’t miss Toy Story Land.
