I’m sure no one is shocked that I felt Toy Story Land at Walt Disney World needed it’s very own blog post. There is just so much to see and do here, and I thought I would share my top tips and hints to getting the most out of this amazing part of Disney Hollywood Studios!
Toy Story Land is located at the far right-hand corner of the park. I would highly suggest checking the map and planning out your route to get to the land if you are wanting to sprint in for Extra Magic hour as it is a bit of a mission to get there.
Once you are there, I would attack the rides in the order I’ve listed them below based on line lengths 😉
There are also tonnes of little gems hidden around Toy Story Land, including great photo opportunities.
I was lucky enough to check out Toy Story Land a few times on my visit, both during the day and at night, and got a good feel for the land and the best times to visit and what rides to go for!
Here are my tips and hints…
Slinky Dog Dash
If you are not a huge rollercoaster fan, then this is a good starter for you! Personally, I am not the biggest thrill ride fan but I survived this one 😉 there were literally 4-year-olds on the ride with me, and I will admit they were way less scared than me, but once I had done it once I was ready to go again!
This is one of the cornerstone rides in the land and the line does get long throughout the day. I suggest making it your first stop or coming at night! It’s REALLY cool at night!
Plus it is the coolest rollercoaster you’ve ever seen and makes a super cool photo at the least!
Alien Swirling Saucers
This ride is SO much fun and suitable for the whole family. It works similar to Mater’s Junkyard at California Adventure Park and changes tracks as it spins around!
It’s also a good pick for hot days as it is undercover 😉 but also lights up like a disco at night!
Toy Story Mania
This isn’t a new ride, but it’s honestly one of my favourite in the whole park! It’s super addictive and we rode it around 8 times! If you are competitive then you will love it as well 😉
It is a shooter style game where you aim for targets and get points. You wear 3D glasses and your cars follow a track and swirl around.
The line for this ride runs pretty quick and consistent. Another great one for families and young kids.
Make Sure You Visit At Night
The real magic of Toy Story Land is best experienced at night in my opinion. All the larger than life fairy lights come on and it is purely magical!
In fact, all the rides are so much fun at night. Especially the Alien Swirling Saucers (make sure you check out our Toy Story Land highlights on Instagram here).
Eat At Woody’s Lunch Box
Everything in Toy Story Land is supersized to create the feel of being a real toy’s in Andy’s world. This includes food stalls and cafes 🙂
The service here is REALLY quick with easy and healthy options. My pick is the Mystic Portal Punch in a Souvenir Alien Sipper that has a green flashing claw inside!
They also have cute little Babybel snack packs and activation you have to check out. They even serve alcohol 😉 If the lines are long you can order via the app!!
Meet Your Favourite Toy Story Characters
This is obviously the best place to meet the characters. Buzz, Woody, Jessie and performances often by the Green Army Patrol (again check out our stories).
Note: I did see Forky come out with Woody, but I don’t think he comes out by himself!
Take A Photo With Woody
The entrance of Toy Story Land is one of the best spots for a photo. Periodically the Disney photographers are at this spot and you can line up for a photo. You can access it on your Disney app or ask them to take one with your camera 🙂
