Behind the Scenes of Walt Disney World’s New Toy Story Land and More

Yesterday, Walt Disney World revealed #AwakenSummer, announcing several projects that guests will be able to experience starting this summer and beyond at the Disney resort.

One of the biggest – and most talked about – developments is Toy Story Land, located in Hollywood Studios right behind the already existing Toy Story Midway Mania attraction.

In this new land, you’ll walk straight into Andy’s backyard and be transformed into the size of a toy. There will also be two new attractions for guests to enjoy: Slinky Dog Dash, a family coaster, and Alien Swirling Saucers, where you have to avoid “The Claw.”

Check out a concept video and some art below!

There’s no confirmed opening date for the new land (the same goes for Hollywood Studios’ other new land, Star Wars), but it’s in development, which is exciting!

For this summer, though, there will be other new things to enjoy, like the fireworks show at Hollywood Studios: Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular, which is set to start in June.

Plus you can already enjoy the live stage show Star Wars: A Galaxy Far, Far Away, which opened in April, as well as the Launch Bay and March of the First Order Stormtroopers, led by Captain Phasma.

Across the way in Epcot, the brand new Soarin’ Over the World attraction opens on June 17 (it also opens at Disney’s California Adventure the same day!) and Frozen Ever After, the new attraction in the Norway pavilion, is set to open in June.

As guests board a boat, they’ll travel through Arendelle where Queen Elsa is celebrating a “Winter in Summer” day. The attraction will be topped off by the original voice actors of the movie, with new dialogue and songs for the ride.

So: who’s ready to go to Disney World? What sounds the coolest to you? Sound off below!
