In a setting that’s made to make you feel like the size of a toy and filled with family-friendly activities, Disney’s new Toy Story Land in Orlando is set to be every adult’s dream come true. Andy’s toys have been anxiously waiting to play with his new Midway Games Play Set, and soon they’ll be ready to have you join in on their fun.

Scheduled to open in early summer 2018, Disney’s 11-acre Toy Story Land invites guests to become honorary toys and explore the imaginative, larger-than-life world of Andy’s backyard. Among giant building blocks and board games, you’ll join Buzz Lightyear, Woody, and the rest of Andy’s eclectic collection as you explore the brand new area of Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

Attractions and restaurants will draw on the heart and humor of the Toy Story movies and the characters you’ve come to love. For example, Woody’s Lunch Box will serve Toy Story-themed specialties and soda floats from a walk-up window fashioned out of Andy’s discarded lunch box.

The new Toy Story Land will offer a few new family-friendly rides, including the Slinky Dog Dash. This fun roller coaster will take passengers on a twisting, curving, toy-filled adventure across the length of the park on Andy’s Mega Coaster Play Kit.

Alien Swirling Saucers is another all-new ride set inside of a play set Andy won at Pizza Planet. It will take honorary toys on an intergalactic journey in a tiny rocket alongside flying saucers while listening to an out-of-this-world electronic soundtrack. Near the end, lucky toys will get “chosen by the claw” just like in Toy Story.

Orlando’s Toy Story Land will also add a new track to the already-existing Toy Story Mania! ride. It will now offer five fast-paced virtual carnival games in 4D (Hamm & Eggs, Rex & Trixie’s Dino Darts, Green Army Men Shoot Camp, Buzz Lightyear’s Flying Tossers, and Woody’s Rootin’ Tootin’ Shootin’ Gallery) that let you play alongside all of your favorite characters.

If the success of Toy Story Land at the Walt Disney Studios park in Hong Kong is any indication, children and grown-ups alike are sure to appreciate the Toy Story adventures, attractions, and experiences Disney’s new Toy Story Land in Orlando is set to offer.

Tickets to the rootin’-est, tootin’-est time ever start at $99.00 for a non-resident, one-day pass, so buckle your space ranger utility belt and get ready for what’s sure to be the biggest play date of your adult life.
