Finally, the moment Toy Story fans have been waiting for…

Toy Story Land is expected to open this Saturday at Disney’s Hollywood Studios theme park.

Guests will shrink to the size of a toy as they wander around 11 acres of new land, all designed to resemble Andy’s backyard— full of everyone’s favorite toys, building blocks, game pieces, and a whole lot of fun.

The highly anticipated area will offer two new attractions: the Alien Swirling Saucers and the Slinky Dog Dash.

While the Alien Swirling Saucers will provide fun for the whole family, it’s safe to say the Slinky Dog Dash is already the star of Toy Story Land’s attractions.

An existing favorite, Toy Story Mania, a 3D target-shooting ride, will remain open.

But the fun won’t stop there. Guests can hang out with Buzz Lightyear, Sheriff Woody and Jessie the Yodeling Cowgirl, in designated meet-and-greet areas within Toy Story Land.

New merchandise has already popped up in select stores throughout Disney’s Hollywood Studios. But there’s even more to come, as Toy Story Land exclusive merch makes its way in— including three-eyed alien and Slinky Dog headbands, T-shirts, other clothing, accessories and more.

Admission to Toy Story Land is included with general Hollywood Studios theme park admission. For more information on Toy Story Land, visit and search “Toy Story Land.”

Happening now at Walt Disney World, H2O Glow Nights at Typhoon Lagoon. Guests can get a head start on the Toy Story fun, and hang out with some of their favorite Toy Story characters like Buzz Lightyear, Woody and Jessie. Even Rex will be there, hosting family-friendly activities throughout the party.

Along with shorter wait times and less crowds, guests can experience DJ-hosted dance parties, limited-time food, a special adult-only area and more.

H2O Glow Nights at Typhoon Lagoon runs now through August 11, on select nights. This is a special event; admission is not included with an annual pass. Tickets are $55 plus tax for guests ages 10 and up, and $50 plus tax for children ages 3-9.
