Toy Story Land
This is one addition that I think everyone was excited about. Toy Story Mania was such a big hit, not to mention it's probably one of the most fun rides at Walt Disney World. To add an entire land around that theme was bound to be a huge success. And it is.
The theme is that you have shrunk down to toy size and you and the other toys are playing around in Andy's backyard in the amazing setup that Andy created. They even have a giant fence around the area to really make it feel like you really are in a backyard.
Everything is themed to look like it is made out of toys. Everything. Everything in this area is kid themed. It's like a massive trip back to childhood, and I love it. I would honestly love for an entire park to be made in this theme.
The Food Options
There is a quick-service dining area, but it currently only has outside dining, so don't bank on this if there is bad weather. There are plans for an indoor dining restaurant in the future. I'll have to try it out when it opens. But for right now there is just Woody's Lunch Box. Everything on the menu is themed after foods that kids commonly eat, but they are jazzed up a bit.

We went at breakfast time, which was awesome because I was able to justify trying the 'poptarts'. Nic and I tried the raspberry tart and my parents tried the Halloween-themed tart. Nic also surprised me with a root beer float, which I feel is mandatory to try when on the menu. They were good. The tarts were all very sweet, especially the Halloween tart with the candy corn. Honestly, they were a bit too sweet for me and I most likely won't get them again. But, we also don't eat that many sweet things.
I do really want to try the totchos, which are tater tots covered in chili and queso. I think I'll have to wait until after I get off slink dog to try them, though...
The outdoor seating area is very nice, though in the mid-morning September sun there wasn't much in the way of shade even with the colorful overhead hangings. I wasn't in the area in the afternoon, but I hope there would be more shade because in the morning it was full sun.
There are currently three rides in Toy Story Land: the ever-popular Toy Story Midway Mania, Slinky Dog Dash, and Alien Swirling Saucers.
I was surprised how much I liked Slinky Dog Dash. I am not a roller coaster person. I haven't even been on Everest and that's been out for years. But, I loved Slinky Dog. I was laughing the entire time. I even had my eyes open! I won't give away the ride since it does have some surprises, but I can say that it really is fun for all ages. I would totally ride it again.
Of the three rides, the spinning saucers were my least favorite. It's not a bad ride. I had fun looking through all the colorful windows. It is an exact replica of the tractor ride at California Adventure, though both rides have been turned down since I rode the tractor ride in California. That's a good thing—my brother and I got whiplash and our necks were sore after riding it. If you like the teacups, you will like this ride.
