    An overview of the land – This 11-acre expansion of Disney’s Hollywood Studios shrinks guests down to the size of a toy and lets them explore Andy’s backyard which has been scattered with characters and toys from the Toy Story films. Toy Story Land opened June 30th and adds two new attractions to the line up at Disney's Hollywood Studios.

    History of Toy Story Land

    Toy Story
    Play Land first debuted in 2010 at Walt Disney Studios park at the Disneyland Paris resort. Hong Kong Disneyland received a copy of this land in 2011. The two original lands were additions to parks that needed more for younger children to do. It also was severely criticized for its "cheapness". Shanghai Disneyland has a similar Toy Story Land to the first two and opened in April 2018 however that land also has Woody's Roundup a version of Mater's Junkyard Jamboree and Alien Swirling Saucers. The Disney’s Hollywood Studios version is similar in theming however features distinctly different attractions from the previous iterations. The goal of the land is to shrink guests down to the size of a toy and make them feel as if they are inside the films of Toy Story. Toy Story Land at Hollywood Studios was first announced at D23 Expo in 2015 and comes in at about 11 acres in size. Construction on the new land began in April 2016 alongside construction for Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.

    Attractions in Toy Story Land

    Slinky Dog Dash (SDD) – In Slinky Dog Dash, Andy has assembled his roller coaster kit for maximum family fun. Tracks and supports in bright colors of red, orange, yellow and blue are put together according to Andy’s hand-drawn plans, with Rex and Jessie lending a hand. And to complete his creation, Andy picked up everyone’s favorite floppy-eared dachshund with a strrrrretch-ing slinky coil belly and dropped it on to the coaster track. Get ready to ride inside Slinky Dog’s coils! Slinky Dog Dash is inspired bythe delightful pooch spinoff of Slinky, the 1950s American toy classic. Riders of all ages will delight as Slinky Dog bends and twists his coils around curves, hills, bridges and drops in the Slinky-est coaster ever. Riders will zip around and above Toy Story Land, serving up panoramic views of all that the new land has to offer. Andy’s colorful creation will stretch Slinky Dog and his coils to the max – from his head to his upturned tail – and be fun for the entire family. (From WDWMagic)

    Alien Swirling Saucers (AS2 or Aliens) – board a toy rocket and hang on tight as the Aliens take you on a spin through space!

Hold on for some wild fun as your toy rocket takes off, all while electronic space music provides an intergalactic soundtrack.”

    Fastpass+ information

    Disney’s Hollywood Studios does have a tiered Fastpass system. Currently Toy Story Mania is in tier one. We do not know at this time where the two new Toy Story Land attractions will end up.

    Fastpass+ allows Disney guests to book their Fastpasses in advance of their visit. Guests staying at Disney Resort Hotels and select non-Disney hotels are allowed to book their Fastpasses 60 days in advance. Everyone else is allowed to book 30 days in advance. If you are unable to obtain your desired Fastpass at 60 or 30 days in advance don't fret, keep checking as one could become available at anytime.


    This means guests can only choose 1 of the Toy Story Land attractions and then 2 attractions in other areas of the park. All current tier 1 Fastpasses will become tier 2 when Toy Story Land opens and only Toy Story Land attractions will be in tier 1.


    Slinky Dog Dash - FP+ is available as Tier 1
    Rider Swap Available


    Alien Swirling Saucers - FP+ is available as Tier 1
    Rider Swap Available

    Toy Story Mania – FP+ is available Tier 1
    Rider Swap Available

    Toy Story Mania does not have any height requirements.

    Update with Date Change! FastPasses Will Be Temporarily Unavailable for Toy Story Mania Beginning This April

    I am thinking ahead. Presumably once TSL in DHS opens Shanghai's would have already been opened. ;)

    Hoping this will be open for my October trip. The one in Paris is cute, though it's a shame they didn't clone the RC Racer ride!

    So it seems a certainty that Slinky Dog will be Tier 1, and I'd imagine very unlikely the Saucers would be Tier 1. That would result in 6 Tier 1 attractions, which seems excessive. I'd imagine they would move Beauty & Beast to Tier 2. It would even seem possible to up the daily allotment to 2 Tier 1's. Then of course there is Star Wars next year likely resulting in some kind of change unless by then they are selling more and more FPs to the point that is really the only way to get them.
