Disney Parks announced yet another new attraction coming to the Hollywood Studios location in Orlando – Toy Story Land. This new addition to the park will be a sprawling 11-acres, featuring two new attractions. According to Disney Imagineer Kathy Magnum, the inspiration for this new immersive attraction was the overwhelming response to Disney California Adventure Park’s Cars Land.

“As all of you know, here in Anaheim, we’ve been quite successful with taking immersive experiences to a whole new level as we did with Cars Land. In fact, one of our favorite stories from opening day is that we overheard a little boy asking his mom, ‘Is this where they filmed the Cars movie?’” Kathy said. “That’s exactly how we want people to feel – like they’ve stepped onto the set of their favorite film … like the quaint town of Radiator Springs or, in the case of ‘Toy Story,’ the wild and adventurous outdoors of Andy’s backyard.”

Toy Story Land will make visitors feel like they are toys themselves, shrunken down to Woody and Buzz’s size, as they explore Andy’s backyard. One of the new attractions in Toy Story Land will be a family friendly rollercoaster, where visitors ride between the spirals of Slinky Dog’s back.

Another attraction, Magnum added, features the squishy little aliens from Pizza Planet with “little green aliens pulling you around as the Claw looms over you.”
