Comments Off on Top 6 Must-do’s at Toy Story Land in 2019

Toy Story Land is the newest expansion at Walt Disney World, spanning over 11-acres at Disney’s Hollywood Studios Park. If you’re a Toy Story fan you’ll be in your element, exploring the colorful world of Andy’s backyard. There’s so much to see, but these are the Top 6 Must-do’s at Toy Story Land in 2019 during your visit.

Andy’s Back Yard

Toy Story Mania is one of the most popular rides at Walt Disney World and now guests can get even more of Buzz, Woody and the whole gang in the new 11-acre Toy Story Land at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. The land, based off the beloved Pixar films and characters, is designed to look like Andy’s backyard and guests will feel like they’ve shrunken down to the size of a green army man with giant toys scattered about everywhere. “It’s great to be able to bring guests into Andy’s backyard,” said Disney Imagineer Shannon Mashchak. “It’s really fun developing all the immersive details, which is challenging yet exciting to take all of those toys that so many generations know and love and then blow them up so that you’re the size of a toy.”

Ride Slinky Dog Dash

The marquee attraction at Toy Story Land is Slinky Dog Dash. The story is that Andy combined a mega coaster kit with Slinky Dog as the coaster car. “Something that’s unique and special about Slinky Dog Dash is that you actually get to ride inside one of those classic characters from your favorite movies,” said Mashchak. The Disney Imagineer also said to look for fun details such as Slinky’s tail bouncing and characters Jesse and Rex talking to each other during the ride. For a coaster, it’s not intense like the park’s Rock ‘N’ Roller Coaster and doesn’t have any scary drops so it’s a perfect introduction for kids ready to try a coaster ride.

Take a Spin on Alien Swirling Saucers

One of the two new rides in Toy Story Land is the Alien Swirling Saucers. Here, guests climb aboard Alien-piloted rocket ship saucers which move around to electronic space music.  The Alien’s favorite object, “The Claw”, looms overhead. The rocket ships whirl and swirl, but they don’t spin, making this ride less nausea-inducing than the Mad Hatter Teacups. The minimum height for this ride is 32 inches and FastPass+ is available.

Green Army Patrol

Disney couldn’t have possibly opened a new land without bringing in some new entertainment. Since this is Toy Story Land, it makes sense that the Green Army Patrol would be part of the fun. This posse of  green guys marches through Toy Story Land, stopping to play games with guests in their fun boot camp. Green Army Drum Corps can also be found marching around Toy Story Land. They play percussive music that is sure to get you moving.

Woody’s Lunch Box

Perhaps one of the most creative quick service counters at Walt Disney World, Woody’s Lunch Box is literally a lunchbox propped up with toys, a thermos and other lunchbox food. And the menu is a lot of fun with items that take you straight back to your childhood such as a s’mores French toast sandwich or an old-fashioned soda float. “The inspiration was to bring back the kid we all have in ourselves,” said Hollywood Studios Pastry Chef Sergio Avila Favela. And the food is just as cute as it is tasty. When asked what the best Instagrammable snack is on the menu, the chef chuckled and said, “Oh, the tart.” These oven pastries are so much better than the boxed stuff and come in two delicious flavors: hazelnut with bacon bits and (my favorite) raspberry.

Check-Out Buzz and Woody

Buzz and Woody are literally a big part of the new land with two larger-than-life structures. You can find Woody at the beginning of the land and Buzz right outside Alien Swirling Saucers. While these toys might seem like they’re just decoration, they actually talk so when you walk past them hang around for a second to hear Woody welcome you as a toy to Andy’s backyard and Buzz speak in Spanish.

2019 promises to be big as far as new attractions but this one is sure to be popular for a very long time. But here are the Top 6 Must-do’s at Toy Story Land in 2019 just in case you miss it!  guarantees top-notch customer services and great prices!

Comments Off on Top 5 Reasons to Take Toddlers to Disney World


Wondering whether or not to take your toddler to Disney? Discover fun for little ones—as well as special offers designed with your family in mind. Even though your young ones will probably not remember the adventure, you will remember watching the look on their faces when they encounter Mickey Mouse and Magic Kingdom for the first time!

Top 5 Reasons to Take Toddlers to Disney World

1. The best reason to take them is it’s free!! Kids under 3 don’t need a separate ticket. With a one day Single day ticket for kids around $108, that’s a considerable savings if you choose to take your 2 year old instead of waiting until he’s 3 or 4. The same goes for FastPass+ selections. During a FastPass+ selection window, simply scan the ticket or MagicBand of the Adult, simply inform the Cast Member that your child is under 3 and they will get to experience the attraction (as long as they meet the height requirements for the attraction).  

2. Another great benefit are the Baby Centers. If your toddler gets tired and needs a break you can take them here so they can nap or just wind down. The centers are run by a Disney parks attendant, and have big, clean changing tables, nursing rooms, high chairs, and toys. You can also purchase formula, clothes, toys, and pacifiers. Baby Care Centers aren’t just for emergencies. Think of them as time out rooms where your family can take a break. They’re clean, spacious, have comfortable chairs and a TV running Disney movies.

3. The Disney Cast members and kids are so incredible! They go out of their way to interact with the little ones and pay them special attention. No matter the Character you approach they are fun, exiting and play their roles to a tee! What a delight for youngsters! They will also sign autographs and have been trained to sign a specific way so that you will always get the same signature no matter who is playing the character.


4. There are so many rides for your toddlers can enjoy! At Andy’s Backyard in Disney World’s All-New Toy Story Land, kids and grown-ups alike will feel like they have been shrunken down to the size of a green army man with giant toys scattered about everywhere. Dumbo the Flying Elephant is probably the one attraction that the little ones gravitate to the most. The only rides that you can’t take your toddler on are Expedition Everest, Tower of Terror, Rock ‘n’ Rollercoaster, Space Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Splash Mountain, Kali River Rapids, Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, and Indy Speedway.  Word of warning, though: just because you can take your toddler doesn’t mean that you should. You’ll have to make judgment calls based on your own child’s character and fear levels.

5. If you go in the off-season, the parks are least crowded. January, September, October, and the first two weeks of November and December are the best times to go and not have to fight the massive crowds. You can then go at a leisurely pace and both you and your toddler can enjoy the park!
