Disney today announced the opening date for the new Toy Story Land at Hollywood studios as 30th June 2018.



When it opens, guests visiting Toy Story Land will “shrink” to the size of a toy and join in on the fun Woody, Jessie, Buzz, and Andy’s other beloved toys are having in Andy’s backyard. Here, guests can take a ride on Slinky Dog Dash, a roller coaster Andy has assembled from his Mega Coaster Play Kit and topped off with Slinky and Jessie. (Check out the time-lapse video above of one of Slinky Dog Dash’s first test runs).

Families will also be able to take a spin on Alien Swirling Saucers, a galactic play set that Andy won from Pizza Planet. Here, adorable little green aliens swirl about in their flying saucers with guests in tow in their rocket ship toys, while “The Claw” hangs overhead.

Guests can also walk through a new carnival game box to experience Toy Story Mania!, which has been a guest-favorite attraction at the park since it opened in 2008. Now expanded with a third track, the popular attraction will put even more guests in the action taking aim at 3D objects – using everything from baseballs to cream pies – in a variety of whimsical, fast-paced games.

inline imageDisney has revealed at the D23 expo in Japan that the new attraction 'Guardians of the Galaxy' coming to Walt Disney World's EPCOT will be one of the longest enclosed coasters in the world.

"With the 'Guardians of the Galaxy' inspired coaster, we're going big. This one-of-a-kind family attraction will be one of the world's longest enclosed roller coasters when it's added to Future World at Epcot. It'll feature a unique story currently being created by Walt Disney Imagineering and include a new innovative ride system that's guaranteed to 'wow' guests.

The 'Guardians of the Galaxy' inspired coaster is part of our ongoing work to transform Epcot into a place that’s more family, more relevant, more timeless and more Disney. "As we build upon its core mission of optimism and hope to inspire the world, the real will become fantastic and the fantastic will become real—in whole new ways at Epcot," Bob Chapek, Chairman of Walt Disney Parks & Resorts, said."

inline imageDuring D23 Expo Japan, Bob Chapek, Chairman of Walt Disney Parks & Resorts, shared some information on the highly anticipated new Star Wars Inspired resort to be built at Walt Disney World.

The new resort will be seamlessly connected to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

"This first-of-its-kind resort will combine luxury with complete immersion into an authentic Star Wars story. Guests’ journey through space will start when everyone departs together for a multiday Stars Wars adventure by boarding a starship alive with characters and stories that unfold all around them during a voyage through the galaxy.

At the resort, guests immediately become active citizens of the galaxy and can dress up in the proper attire. Every resort window will also have a view into space. The opportunity for immersion at this resort will also stand out among all Disney resorts around the globe, as it will be seamlessly connected to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, allowing guests a total Star Wars experience."

inline imageBob Chapek the Chairman of Walt Disney Parks & Resorts announced in Japan at the D23 expo that Mickey & Minnie's Runaway Railway will open in 2019 at Disney's Hollywood Studios.

"Mickey & Minnie's Runaway Railway will feature a new catchy theme song created especially for the attraction as well as a new experience that defies logic that we're calling 2 ½-D. No glasses required.

On the attraction, the fun begins when you see the premiere of a new cartoon short with Mickey and Minnie getting ready for a picnic. As they head out, they drive alongside a train and find out that the engineer is Goofy. Then, one magical moment lets you step into the movie and on Goofy's train for a wacky, wild ride.

Mickey & Minnie's Runaway Railway will put you inside the wacky and unpredictable world of a Mickey Mouse Cartoon Short where you're the star and anything can happen. And for the first time, we shared a preview of what the cars will look like when you board the attraction for a zany, out-of-control adventure filled with surprising twists and turns."
