Meanwhile, one of the most beloved attractions at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Toy Story Mania!, which opened in 2008, gets an all-new colourful toy carnival game box entrance when the new land opens.
Recently updated with a third track, the popular attraction will put even more guests in the carnival playset action taking aim at 3D objects – using everything from baseballs to cream pies – in a variety of whimsical, fast-paced games.
And for those that are hungry, restaurant Woody’s Lunch Box will serve up tasty meals and old-fashioned soda floats from a walk-up window setting.
Bob Chapek, chairman of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts previously said: ‘With set pieces, staging, attractions and experiences Toy Story Land represents the best of Walt Disney Imagineering’s collaboration with our storytelling partners at Pixar Animation Studios.
