Toy Story at Disney’s Hollywood Studios Set to Amaze Guests in 2018

Here in the U.S., Toy Story Land is set to open to guests at Disney’s Hollywood Studios on June 30, 2018. This land will bring with it all the fun, imagination and beloved characters from the “Toy Story” films.

When it opens, guests visiting the land will “shrink” to the size of a toy and join in on the fun Woody, Jessie, Buzz, and Andy’s other favorite pals 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 Rex and Jessie, while Slinky serves as the coaster vehicle. (See photo above for a new look at the track).

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.

Woody’s Lunch Box will serve up tasty meals and old-fashioned soda floats from a walk-up window setting. The entire land will serve as a visual celebration of toys, with Crayons, Cooties, Green Army Men, Rubik’s Cubes, Tinkertoys, and other familiar toys and game pieces incorporated into the land’s design.

Bob also shared this amazing behind-the-scenes video that shows the progress that’s being made on Toy Story Lands at both Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Shanghai Disneyland. (Toy Story Land at Shanghai Disneyland will include three attractions – Rex’s Racer, Slinky Dog Spin and Woody’s Round-Up – and is on track to open on April 26, 2018). Take a peek at both in the video above.

What’s New About Star Wars at Disney’s Parks

Star Wars Awakens at Hollywood Studios

Star Wars Awakens at Hollywood Studios

Ever since Disney had acquired the Lucasfilm Franchise, expectations about the future of this most celebrated space opera keep making the headlines everywhere. In fact the discussions about new Star Wars Attractions have topped the list of all theme park speculations like never before. And I think the prospects of enjoying more of Star Wars right in the middle of the world’s happiest place or the possibilities of visiting an entire land dedicated to the iconic Franchise for that matter have changed the way we think about space adventures today. For the first time in the history of the Franchise such historic expansion is taking place. And with the plans of expansion in all possible formats (movies, animations, toys and stationeries, including theme park attractions), Disney is sure to re-define the legacy of one of the world’s most beloved space opera.

However, it’s also true that we have waited for so long on this. It has been over two years now since Disney had finalized the Deal with George Lucas, but the anticipations that followed the acquisition are yet to take shape at the world famous Parks. Part of the reason is that they are all waiting for the up-coming 2015 Star Wars sequel to take the lead. Also as per the latest revelations by Disney, and the fact that the new attractions will be based on the up-coming Star Wars sequels (such as Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Spinoffs) offer reasons enough for the Imagineers to wait until J.J. Abrams is all set to discuss his blockbuster plans.

Though it’s still a mystery as to where or which of the Disney Park or Parks will have the new attractions, speculations indicate that WDW’s (Walt Disney World) Hollywood Studios will be one of the most coveted places for the next big Star Wars surprise soon. In deed the long-time rumor of a new Star Wars Land is still the most happening topic of discussion among theme park fans in Orlando.

However, no-matter how long the wait is, but given the revelations there is definitely something for theme park fans to have by this year. The Force Awakens – first of the trilogy is slated to release in theaters by the end of 2015. The grand opening of the same is also seen as the ultimate revival of a genre that inspires multiple generations of fans unlike any other. Also if the reactions to the recent Teaser Trailer are to be believed then Disney is living up to its promises. And indeed there is something incredible and more interesting is taking shape out there. The Episode-VII Trailer itself seems to offer a lot in support of a new legend in the making.

Mickey’s Sorcerer Hat Gone But Not Forgotten

Today, Disney fans from around the world said goodbye to a iconic landmark in Walt Disney World’s Hollywood Studios. Construction crews began tearing down Mickey’s Sorcerer Hat after the park closed last night and what is to replace it is still a mystery. This 122 foot tall structure was added back in 2001 and was the center piece to guests entering the park. It served as a beacon to guests entering the park as well as a stage at time to host performances of all types. The hat was designed to showcase Mickey’s magical sorcerer’s hat for the cult classic Disney movie, “Fantasia.” To this day Disney has not said how long it will take to fully remove the hat and there has not been any word on if the hat will be moved to any other part of the Walt Disney World Resort. This removal of such a iconic symbol is just one of many that Disney Hollywood Studios has encountered over the past year like the American Idol Experience, the Legend of Jack Sparrow and most recently the Studio Backlot Tour.

NASA officials announced on 4/12/11 that Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex has been selected to permanently display space shuttle Atlantis upon retirement of the Space Shuttle Program.
