New Photos and On-Ride Video Emerges Ahead of Toy Story Land's Debut! 

Some of the best details are finally here for one of my most anticipated expansions of the year coming to the Disney Parks and Resorts. Ahead of the opening of Disney's Hollywood Studio's Toy Story Land, new images and a short video were debuted on this morning's edition of Good Morning America. 

As many of you who read this site fairly frequently may know, I've been following this project pretty carefully and highly anticipate the new expansion. Today, I'm like a kid on Christmas morning. The photos rolling out are exceeding my expectations and honestly nobody is asking or telling me to say that. I've been a huge Toy Story fan for years and truly believe this could be the "sleeper" addition for Walt Disney World. Many are upset about the "scaled back plans" or changes made along the way, but personally I fall into the category of trusting Imagineering and look forward to seeing what they have developed for guests of all ages. 

To me, that's the key to this entire project. Not only is it a larger expansion than the Toy Story influence found in other Disney parks around the world, but it also welcomes devoted  guests of all ages and backgrounds. Sure, the rollercoaster doesn't look like a big ticket thrill ride, but that's not necessarily what it's designed to be. In essence, this appeals to nearly every generation. Any young adults under the age of 25 or so dont even know a world without Toy Story and it has a cult following that is only beat out by the likes of Star Wars and certain Marvel series. However, it also has one thing going for it that those other franchises don't necessarily focus on and that is that it also appeals to very young children and gives adults and kids alike the opportunity to have fun together in the world of the Disney Parks. 

While at this point we're not entirely sure if we'll be there for a preview event or not, we look forward to touring the land sooner rather than later if we can make it happen! Until then, here's a closer look at what was shared today! 

Oh and one thing I forgot to mention, there's going to be a giant Wheezy animatronic that  sings and dances as guests leave the soon to be vastly popular Slinky Dog Dash Attraction!

Toy Story Land debuts to guests June 30th! 

Truth be told, that was the goal from the very beginning and will be and has been one of the many successful aspects of Walt Disney World and what tends to set it apart form all the rest. In the end, this will likely draw incredible crowds and I believe it will exceed Disney's expectations in the financial realm. Think about it. Who doesn't like Toy Story?? Even if they dont' like it, chances are they have a friend or child that adores the franchise and would love to go see there favorite films brought to life on the greatest stage the them park realm has ever known. Disney has a way of putting you in the moment and this expansion should do just that. Looking at these pictures, it appears as if this expansion could exceed all expectations.
