In case you don’t have this marked down in your planner, today, August 30th, is National Slinky Dog Day! And, what better way to celebrate the national holiday than by celebrating the greatest slinky dog around, Slinky Dog from the Pixar classic, Toy Story? And, even on top of that, the best way to celebrate the day is by ooh-ing and ahh-ing over the brand new Slinky Dog now at Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World.
Toy Story Land is set to open at the Orlando theme park in 2018, but already the toy pieces are starting to fall into place. This new expansion will feature not one but two new attractions, one themed around the Little Green Men (ahhhhh), and the second around everyone’s favorite dog. As the Disney Parks Blog writes:
Talking about it is one thing, but you’ve actually got to SEE the coaster to believe its cute factor. Disney released a video of some of Slinky’s plastic friends awaiting his arrival.
Those at Disney World have spotted Slinky Dog arriving early in the week, and excitement is clearly growing:
It also appears, from an aerial viewpoint, the track for the coaster is complete:
No matter how long the line, we’re definitely going to wait for this when it opens next year.
