Woody is Home!!

Woody is Home!!

I love all things Disney.  And my kids were the perfect age for the Toy Story movies.  I loved Toy Story!  I frequently quote the line “There is a snake in my boot,” for easing the tension in a situation. My daughter is named Jesse, so we fit right into Toy Story 2.

I have a small issue from the Toy Story 3, because I still have a few toys from my mother and have saved my most treasured toys, to share with my grandchildren.  I just don’t understand why someone would let those favorite toys leave the family.  Andy  must be a minimalist who is cleaning house, or he didn’t really love those toys.

Disney is having the last laugh though, as Woody comes home!   On June 30, 2018 the Toy Story Land will open in Hollywood Studios and this week a giant Woody was installed to watch over the land.

From the Disney Parks Woody in Toy Story landblog, “Standing nearly 20 feet tall, Woody will appear as a part of the new Toy Story Land marquee, which sits just in front of one of the land’s most anticipated attractions, the Slinky Dog Dash coaster. He’s tipping his hat (which measures 7’ feet, brim to brim!), next to the marquee, which is made out of blocks and a 4-foot-tall yo-yo – just a few of the many toys that make up Toy Story Land.”

Welcome home Woody!

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?
