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.
