Walt Disney Studios Park

During Mickey's Magical Party in 2009, information was leaked about an expansion at Walt Disney Studios Park, the resort later confirmed this. The new Pixar themed area helped promote Toy Story 3. The area is designed to "shrink the guest" down to being the size of a toy, and to play in Andy's Backyard with his toys. It had to do this through using highly immersive theming, using bamboo to act as giant blades of grass surrounding the area, the use of many themed props and characters from the Toy Story films such as a giant Buzz Lightyear, a giant Rex, an oversized paper plane and a large ball from the first Pixar short, Luxo Jr. The area also features numerous photo opportunities. Construction of the area started in late 2009 and was finished on time. The new area is located on the right side of Walt Disney Studios Park, behind the Art of Disney Animation.

Disney's Hollywood Studios

Toy Story Land was announced for the park at the 2015 D23 Expo, roughly 11 acres (4.5 ha) and features a different attraction lineup, including a new entrance for the expanded Toy Story Mania! The other attractions include a Slinky Dog themed family coaster and an attraction based around The Claw and the Little Green Aliens. Construction began on April 3, 2016, and the land opened on June 30, 2018. This edition of Toy Story Land is the largest in any Disney park in terms of area.

Attractions and entertainment

  • Toy Story Mania! – a shooting dark ride where riders try to score points by hitting targets with a variety of objects inside a carnival-themed playset. The attraction's entrance was originally located in Pixar Place when the ride opened in 2008, but was moved to Toy Story Land with a new entrance on the land's opening day.

  • Slinky Dog Dash – a family-friendly roller coaster where riders are sent flying through Andy's backyard inside of a giant Slinky Dog. The coaster features two launches and an animatronic Wheezy, who serenades riders as their coaster enters the loading area.

  • Alien Swirling Saucers – a flat ride themed around Buzz Lightyear where riders are whipped around a toy playset of outer space in a vehicle driven by one of Buzz's little green aliens. This ride uses similar ride mechanics as Mater's Junkyard Jamboree in Cars Land and Woody's Round-Up in Shanghai Disneyland's version of Toy Story Land.

  • Green Army Men Drum Corps – Green Army Men play cadences on a snare drum, bass drum, and tenor drums.

  • Green Army Men Boot Camp – Green Army Men invite guests to partake in various boot camp drills, games, and chants; making them honorary Green Army Men.

  • Character meet & greets - Buzz Lightyear nearby the Toy Story Land marquee, Sheriff Woody and Bo Peep outside Toy Story Mania! and Jessie outside Alien Swirling Saucers.

Restaurants and refreshments

  • Woody's Lunch Box – A counter-service restaurant which looks like an old-fashioned lunch box pushed up against a picture book about "Woody's Roundup," a fictional TV show seen in Toy Story 2. The restaurant is sponsored by Babybel.

  • Woody's Roundup Rodeo BBQ - It was announced in 2019 that a table-service Toy Story-themed restaurant will be built with an opening date of 2020.
