Toy Story Land opens on June 30! Since it’s announcement in 2015 at D23 Expo, Toy Story lovers have been waiting to Play Big in Andy’s Backyard. TravelingMom had the chance to visit Andy and his toys this week as part of the media event hosted by Disney World and I can’t wait to share my favorite parts of Toy Story Land with you! Here are 5 super cute details to look for at Toy Story Land.
It’s time to Play Big at Walt Disney World, guys! Toy Story Land opens this weekend and it is simply adorable, y’all. We got a sneak peek yesterday and this long-awaited addition to Disney’s Hollywood Studios does not disappoint!
Here are the 5 things you’ll want to look for when you visit Andy’s backyard this year.
5 Super Cute Details At Toy Story Land
From the moment you walk in, you realize this land is like no other! Someone asked me if it felt a little like the immersion you have when you enter Cars Land- YES. Exactly like that!
It’s just bright, cheery, fun and a fantastic representation of what it would be like to be one of Andy’s Toys.
We had a chance to speak with Disney World Ambassador Brandon Peters at the Slinky Dog coaster and he agrees that this is one immersive experience! Here are a few of the most adorable things to look for when you visit Toy Story Land this summer.
1. Andy’s Footprints
The story of Toy Story Land: you’ve been shrunk down to the size of a toy and you’ve found your way into Andy’s backyard. Look around and you’ll see that you are in the middle of his imaginative play- he’s left his toys and creations lying around everywhere!
One of the first little details I loved was right in front of me as we walked in: Andy’s footprints are on the ground! This huge print really gives some context on how small you’ve become when you enter Toy Story Land!
2. The Block Wall
You know I’m all about the Disney Instagram Walls, right? I love finding new places to take fun pictures when I’m in the parks and Toy Story Land came through with some fun picture ops!
My favorite? The Block Wall! Follow this new Instagram account and use the hashtag to join in the fun.
You can find this one across from the Alien Swirling Saucers by the Cooties restrooms. Yup- that’s right, the Cooties restroom.
UPDATE: I found a few more super cute adorable Disney Instagram walls in Toy Story Land. You need to visit the Popsicle Wall and Andy’s Wall as well!
3. Find Your Favorite Toys & Games from Childhood
I found so many blasts from the past games and toys represented in Toy Story Land!
The restrooms are cleverly themed with Cooties- do you remember those? I laughed so hard when I saw that this was on the outside of the bathroom!
And my mama’s heart swelled when I saw this super cute train track bench nearby. My oldest son, Jacob, absolutely loved trains and I can’t tell you how many times we made these tracks together so he could run them all over the house!
So this bench- well, it’s my favorite, obviously.
4. Hidden Mickey’s in Toy Story Land
Oh, they are all over the place!
I won’t spoil the hunt, but I will give a hint from a Cast Member who was totally in the know: she said that Andy loves to draw hidden Mickey’s. So look around for some of his artwork when you are on the hunt for Hidden Mickey’s in Toy Story Land.
5. Mobile Ordering at Woody’s Lunchbox
We had a chance to sample the delicious food coming out of Toy Story Land and you will not be disappointed! But know this about Woody’s Lunchbox: it’s a small area. So the lines are going to be a bit crazy, especially if you are trying to get in this summer to check things out.
My advice? MOBILE ORDERING, Y’ALL!
Am I shouting? Yup, I am. Because it’s awesome.
Be sure to check out how to use the mobile ordering for quick service meals at Disney World– you will thank me for this top Toy Story Land tip, I promise!
Alright, guys- it’s time to Play Big! Let me know what you are most looking forward to seeing at Toy Story Land!
