Tips for Touring Toy Story Land
Happy Wednesday, friends! I hope you all are having a great week so far! It's been a few weeks now since Toy Story Land had it's grand opening and I wanted to share my thoughts on the newest land at Hollywood Studios, along with some touring tips and tricks for any of you who might be going soon.
First off, the land is incredibly cute and there are so many details throughout the area. There are two new rides, Slinky Dog Dash and Alien Swirling Saucers. Toy Story Midway Mania got a new queue so it enters from Toy Story Land and not Pixar Place, which is now shut down to guests. There's also a quick service restaurant, Woody's Lunch Box, but I haven't had the chance to eat there yet.
Slinky Dog Dash
I love the new rollercoaster, Slinky Dog Dash. It's so fun, and definitely worth the wait it will most likely have. I would say it's somewhere between Goofy's Barnstormer and Space Mountain in thrills. It's definitely better than Seven Dwarfs Mine Train! I would suggest sitting in the back for a more thrilling ride. If you're wanting a good look into Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge then sit in the front! After the second launch you'll be able to see over Andy's fence into the next new land to open at Hollywood Studios.
Alien Swirling Saucers
If you've ever been on Mater's Junkyard Jamboree then you've experienced what Alien Swirling Saucers is like. The best part about this flat top ride is the music that's played during the ride. It's all remixes of Toy Story songs and scores. I would suggest riding this at night because there are some pretty neat light features to make the ride even better than it is during the day!
Toy Story Midway Mania
You might have already rode this when the entrance to the queue was in Pixar Place, and the ride is basically the same. The best part about the remodel is that the Mr. Potato Head animatronic is featured in the stand-by queue again. If you have a Fastpass you won't be seeing Mr. Potato Head at all, but the ride is still worth it. When you exit the ride there are some really cute photo spots as well, including the Popsicle Stick Wall.
I would suggest going to Toy Story Land in the morning right when Hollywood Studios opens for photos and to jump in line for Slinky Dog Dash. Then I would make my grand exit because it will definitely start to get busy and Toy Story Land is relatively small. Going to Toy Story Land at night is a necessity. It feels like a totally different place, and because there's no shade inside the land, night time might be a better option when it's super hot out. You'll have shorter wait times at night too, especially the closer to park closing it is.
Well friends, that's it for this week! Let me know in the comments if you've been able to experience Toy Story Land yet, and what your favorite part was. Also be sure to follow me on Instagram to keep up with all of my Disney adventures!
