Like a Pixar movie come to life, the first Slinky Dog themed roller coaster ride vehicles arrives at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, where they will find their home as part of a brand new family coaster — Slinky Dog Dash. The new ride will be part of three major attractions found in the all-new 11-acre Toy Story Land that opens next summer. It’s all part of a major multi-year transformation for the Walt Disney World theme park.
Toy Story Land will invite guests to step into the whimsical world of Pixar Animation Studios’ blockbuster films where playtime stretches longer than a Slinky Dog. Guests will feel like they’ve shrunk to the size of a toy as they play in Andy’s backyard with their favorite Toy Story pals.
Inspired by the playful dachshund spinoff of Slinky, the classic American toy, Slinky Dog Dash will send riders dipping, dodging and dashing around turns and drops that Andy has created to stretch Slinky and his coils to the max.
Slinky Dog Dash will be joined in the new land by more beloved Toy Story pals in another fresh-from-the-box themed attraction — Alien Swirling Saucers. This Pizza Planet toy play set is loaded with Aliens circling about in their flying saucers pulling along rocket ships full of Guests.
The new land will also include what’s already one of the most popular Walt Disney World attractions – Toy Story Mania! The ride expanded to a third track last year and this year will have its main entrance re-oriented to align with the new Toy Story Land located on the opposite side of the existing ride.
In 2019, Disney’s Hollywood Studios adds another major expansion when Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opens. It will give fans the opportunity to live their own Star Wars stories.
