Toy Story Land Opens in June

Toy Story Land Opens in June

Just in time for your summer vacation, there is a new land opening at Walt Disney World!  Inside Hollywood Studios, the new Toy Story Land will open on June 30, 2018.

So what’s in the new land?  There is a new Slinky Dog roller coaster that coils around curves, hills, and drops. In addition, there will be Alien Swirling Saucers that will swirl you in an alien rocket.  You can go into Andy’s room and blast your way through a carnival themed arcade.  Finally, Woody’s Lunch box will be open for themed treats and to make you an “honorary” toy.

According to the Disney Tourist blog, “The premise of the land is to shrink guests to the size of a toy to enter the land. The attractions will include a family-friendly roller coaster where guests board Slinky Dog’s back for a ride on a “coaster kit” toy that Andy has built in his play area (think Gadget’s Go Coaster or Barnstormer). The other attraction will be an Alien saucers attraction, with the little green aliens from the movie taking guests for a spin in their very own flying saucers (think Mater’s Junkyard Jamboree).”

Are you going to be one of the first people to try this new land?

Whew!  It has been a great week for merchants, but a really bad week for my bank account.  Well, my imaginary bank account, because I can’t actually purchase any of the items that are featured this week.

On Monday, Coach launched a line of Minnie Mouse handbags, coin purses and bag tags.  They are stunning with their adorable dots and Minnie ears.  But holy budget Batman, the cheapest item was $95, which was a bag tag.   Aren’t those free at the airport?  I must be the only one with budget constraints, because the entire site was sold out by Monday afternoon.

Mickey Dutch Oven

 

 

Now the kitchen can join the bandwagon, as Le Creuset has launched a Mickey Mouse Dutch Oven.  It is bright red, with Mickey Mouse featured all around it and on the handle.  I am not much of a cook, but even my humble oven would love a dash of red Mickey Mouse….until I saw the price tag.   I don’t know how much the Dutch cook, but my entire stove did not cost as much as this Dutch Oven.   I am not even sure what you make with a Dutch Oven, but I won’t be making it at my house.

Maybe in my dream, I will sit on my Ethan Allen Mickey Mouse chair, I will eat a home cooked meal from my Mickey Mouse Dutch Oven and happily swing my Minnie Coach purse.  But for now, I will admire them from a distance.

What Disney merchandise do you admire?
