If you already have summer vacation plans, cancel them. Do it. Because you’ve got something bigger and better to see in Orlando, Florida. During the 2018 Oscars, the Walt Disney World Resort teased their brand new Toy Story Land, which, just based on name alone, sounds like a magical place. But now we’re actually seeing pictures and videos of it, and it’s honestly the most magical land of all.
Come on, haven’t you always dreamed of shrinking down to the size of a toy to hang out with Woody and Buzz and the rest of Andy’s toy box?
Throughout the Oscars telecast, Disney World kept dropping videos of a bouncing ball rolling across the United States — but it wasn’t just any old ball. It was *the* Pixar ball that we’ve come to know and love, and it was making its way to Hollywood Studios, where Toy Story Land is set to open up this summer. Using the hashtag, #FollowTheBall, Twitter users were encouraged to follow along on the ball’s journey to its final destination (and honestly, it rolled into our hearts, too).
While the teaser videos don’t reveal too much about the new land inside the park, it at least gives us a quick ‘lil glimpse into the new space — and how it feels like we’re going to be shrunk down to the size of a toy, alongside our Toy Story friends. We wouldn’t have it any other way. Building blocks and tinker toys will be larger than life, as will Woody himself.
There will be two new rides inside, Slinky Dog Dash (a roller coaster!) and Alien Swirling Saucers (it’s kinda hard to explain this, but it’ll be like Mater’s Junkyard Jamboree over at Cars Land at Disneyland). These two join the already existing Toy Story Midway Mania, which will be part of this area, too (OBVIOUSLY).
The toys come to life at Disney World on June 30th.
