Toy Story Land to debut at Walt Disney World June 30

Disney has announced the opening date for Toy Story Land at Disney's Hollywood Studios.

Slinky Dog Dash is a family coaster themed as if Andy built it in his backyard using his Mega Coaster Play Kit and some of his other favorite toys.

The new park will form a part of Disney's Hollywood Studios in Florida, and will feature "set pieces, staging, attractions and experiences". "This new land will place guests inside the wondrous world of Woody, Buzz and their pals - and invite everyone to experience the joy of being a toy". Even the lampposts will be shaped like Tinkertoys.

The second new ride is called Alien Swirling Saucers and is described by Disney as a "Pizza Planet toy playset" that is "loaded with aliens circling about in their flying saucers pulling along rocket ships full of guests".

Watch a video of Slinky Dog Dash below followed by some images and concept art. The theme park will be opening up for customers on June 30, 2018. Bonus: Woody's Lunch Box will serve food and refreshments from a walk-up window.

On the attraction guests step inside of Andy's room which is littered with classic toys and fun details to board an early-20th-century-inspired Carnival Ride Tram donning 3D glasses & armed with a spring-action shooter to take on five unique carnival games. Riders will zip around and above Toy Story Land, serving up panoramic views of all that the new land has to offer.

The Hollywood Studios will be the location for the eagerly anticipated Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge land (that will be mirrored in Anaheim's Disneyland, ) slated to open in 2019, but otherwise was lacking ride capacity, Koenig said.
