7 Can’t Miss Toy Story Disney World Attractions for Your Family

Thank you to Disney for inviting us to Media Day to explore Toy Story Land at Disney World. All opinions are my own.

Toy Story Land recently opened at Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World and there is so much to see and do. Here’s my Top 7 Can’t Miss Toy Story Disney World Attractions for Your Family.

1. Slinky Dog Dash Roller Coaster at Toy Story Land

This toy filled coaster is full of fun surprises. I am usually not one to ride roller coasters, but Slinky Dog Dash is a fun ride for the whole family. The coaster doesn’t go upside and only has one big drop. The coaster has coil sounds to really bring the ‘slinky’ effect to life. I highly recommend riding at night too. The lighting effects are incredible and make it a completely different experience. The attraction is designed for the height of the average 4 yr old. My 3 yr old was a few inches shy. Upon hearing her disappointment, a Cast Member gave us a little card so we can come back and go to the front of the line when she is tall enough to ride.

2. Alien Swirling Saucers at Toy Story Disney World

This attraction is a twirling good time. The music is awesome and the design of the ride is vibrant and fun. My daughter was big enough to ride this one and giggled the whole time. There is a height requirement though, and babies cannot ride.

3. Midway Mania Fun for the Whole Family

While Midway Mania isn’t a new attraction, there is an updated entrance and queue area. This 4D shooting ride is perfect for the whole family, lap sitting babies included. We especially loved the walkway when you exit. Lined with fun antics from toy soldiers, the walkway also includes the ‘Popsicle Wall’ and a checker board wall that make great backdrops for photos.

4. Toy Story Character Meet & Greets

Lining the walkways of Toy Story Land are several great character opportunities. Buzz Lightyear  meets in front of the Slinky Dog Coaster. He was so sweet and even danced with Evie. Woody and Jessie meet together in front of Toy Story Midway Mania. I loved that they characters were out for meet and greets all day and even into the night, until park close. The wait queues were also under shaded umbrellas which helped keep us cool. We waited about 20 minutes to meet Buzz and nearly 45 minutes for Woody and Jessie.

5. Woody’s Lunch Box: Toy Story Food & Drinks

Toy Story Land is full of creative details and the inspired food options at Woody’s Lunch Box is no exception. I had the pleasure of talking to Chef Joseph Guilla from Walt Disney World about all the delicious offerings. The Grilled Cheese is delicious with a soft gooey middle, sharp cheddar cream cheese spread, layered in provolone and cheddar and wrapped in garlic butter-grilled French bread.

Mystic Punch was a huge hit with the kids, served in a collectible cup with the claw and a hidden Alien in the bottom. This delicious lemonade and Powerade mixture is refreshing and perfect for hot days at Disney. For dessert, Disney chefs designed a yummy hand-held pastry inspired by breakfast toaster pastries. The menu offer Raspberry of Chocolate-Hazelnut filling, both garnished with icing.

There is also a s’mores sandwich on French Toast that is served for breakfast and I can’t wait to try it on our next trip.

7. Toy Story Souvenirs from Disney World

Disney does everything over the top, and the incredible merchandise is no exception. I spoke to Stephen Miller from the Disney Merchandising team about everything available at Toy Story Land. He mentioned the Buzz Lightyear bubbles were one of his favorites, and my 3 year old agreed. We also loved the Slinky Dog headband, a fun twist on Mouse Ears.

BONUS: Toy Story Land at Night

There are so many little details at Toy Story Land, it’s hard to take it all in with just one trip. We went straight to Toy Story Land upon arrival and then headed back after sunset to experience it after dark. The lighting effects are incredible and really set a completely different tone as you walk through the park. It is also cooler weather in the evening which makes it ideal for exploring. I highly recommend riding Slinky Dog at night too, you can see the blue lights on the track in the photos below. We happened to be in Toy Story Land (riding Slinky Dog) during the Star Wars fireworks. The fireworks happen all around and really make for a magical view.
