Wondering how to add Toy Story Land to your Hollywood Studios Day? We highly recommend you be at Hollywood Studios when the park opens. This will ensure you get into Toy Story Land before the crowds arrive. The Slinky Dog Dash Rollercoaster is super popular and as a result has long waits. We recommend either arriving when the park opens or aiming for the 12-2pm slot of the day when people are either eating lunch, or Disney park hopping to the next park. If you’re planning to visit Toy Story Land at Walt Disney World’s Hollywood Studios, but only have few hours to spend, here is our Must-Do list to help you make the most of your trip.

5 Must Do's at Walt Disney World at Toy Story Land

Ride Slinky Dog Dash at Night

While the Slinky Dog Dash rollercoaster is just as fun during the light of day, nothing beats the experience of seeing Toy Story Land all lit up at night from the seat of this fast-moving, smooth-riding coaster. With dips, twists and turns, the Slinky Dog Dash wraps around most of the park, giving you a bird’s-eye view of Alien Swirling Saucers, Rex and Woody building up their Jenga tower, and the Army Men on the lookout high above Woody’s Lunch Box.

Disney Pro Tip: The Slinky Dog Dash Roller Coaster is fast, between 45-50 mph. So if you’re looking to grab pictures from the ride, strap on a GoPro.

Notice the Details

Toy Story Land is filled with everything you’ll remember from the films, but as a new toy in Andy’s backyard, you’ll also see Andy’s giant footprints embedded in the concrete, large straws and pencils holding up Christmas lights. You’ll find benches near the restrooms made of dominos and Cutie toys everywhere.  Some of the seats at Woody’s Lunchbox are made of Babybel cheeses, and the lunchbox itself is being held open with a thermos. You’ll also see pieces of tape holding together some of the umbrellas at the tables. See if you can recognize all the toys in Toy Story Land.

Disney Pro Tip: Plan to arrive in Toy Story Land early if possible. The details are easier to spot with fewer crowds, and you’ll be able to snap a photo at the color-changing popsicle benches before they fill up with guests.
