Toy Story Land Opening June 30th in Disney’s Hollywood Studios

We’ve been anxiously waiting for months now for the new and today on Good Morning America we found out that Toy Story Land is opening June 30th in Disney’s Hollywood Studios.  This is great news for Walt Disney World’s newest land which will include 3 Attractions:

  • Slinky Dog Dash
  • Alien Swirling Saucers
  • Toy Story Midway Mania (which is getting a new interactive ride queue!)

 

Alien Swirling Saucers:

Here’s the announcement on Good Morning America this morning:

Check out how the progress is going in our latest Toy Story Land Construction Update!

One thing we noticed is the difference in the way the Toy Story Land Entrance has evolved since the earlier concept art.  Here is a shot of the entrance in the early concept art first, the notice how much more detailed it was than the second concept art which will be the final result:

Final Version

It’s disappointing to see the difference in the entrances, the first version looked much more engaging and interactive.  Look at the big difference with Slinky Dog Dash Coaster too.  The other one was almost half-underground and looked way cooler from an ambiance standpoint.  That’s what happens in the U.S. Disney Parks unfortunately though.  Cost-cutting is king and when it runs out, something has to go.  Why can’t the U.S. Disney Parks be more like Japan??

Either way Toy Story Land will be a must-visit place this year for the Incredible Summer Event!  Make sure to be there on June 30th to experience all the fun yourself!
