New Family Coaster at Toy Story Land in Walt Disney World
Toy Story Land opened at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Walt Disney World earlier this year. To say the new land is popular is an understatement! Toy Story Land and its brightly colored landscape filled with our favorite toys has been drawing big, big crowds all summer and is quickly proving to be a family favorite.
Toy Story Land offers 3 attractions, one quick service dining location and a few character meet and greets with Toy Story Characters as well as themed entertainment. The rides there are Toy Story Mania!, which has a new entrance that’s accessible only from within Toy Story Land, Alien Swirling Saucers and Slinky Dog Dash.

Toy Story Land Attractions
Toy Story Mania has been a crowd favorite for years and that has not changed. You still play midway games and compete against other riders to hit targets, break plates, pop balloons and more.
Alien Swirling Saucers is a spinning-type ride that’s very similar to Mater’s Junkyard Jamboree at Disney California Adventure. In this ride, you sit in a vehicle that’s driven by one of the Toy Story Little Green Aliens and you slide and spin around while fun music plays and lights flash and change color overhead. The vehicles move around the platform, getting passed from one section to the other a little bit like the Mad Tea Party teacups, but without a 360-degree spin. Alien Swirling Saucers is a good one for most family members, including smaller kids.
The big thrills come in with Slinky Dog Dash! This super fun coaster takes up most of Toy Story Land and is filled with fun cameos from your favorite characters from Jessie and Rex to Wheezy! The ride has a good length and lots of fun maneuvers — not loops though, so it’s not too intense! The height requirement is 38 inches / 97 cm and kids love it! Slinky talks to you and if you listen closely, you will also hear some funny comments from Jessie and Rex while you glide through Toy Story Land on the smooth, new coaster.
