Welcome to Toy Story Land! We were really excited to check out the newest land in Disney’s Hollywood Studios. I think it’s a fun area that kids and adults can enjoy. Our wheelchair users guide to Toy Story Land covers what you can expect at the attractions, the new quick service location Woody’s Lunch Box, and a few tips to make your visit more enjoyable.
There are three attractions located in Toy Story Land. Toy Story Mania, Slinky Dog Dash, and Alien Swirling Saucers. All three are wheelchair friendly. I think the accessibility was well thought out. Two attractions require you to transfer but they made it as easy as possible.
Toy Story Mania
Toy Story Mania has been around for a while but it has a new entrance and queue. You don’t have to transfer to experience this attraction. I feel it’s one of the most wheelchair friendly attractions in Walt Disney World. And it’s so much fun! You can find out more in our Toy Story Mania post.
Alien Swirling Saucers
To be honest, I wasn’t expecting a lot from Alien Swirling Saucers. But it is a lot more fun than it looks! You can’t help but laugh as you swirl around to the music. It’s even cooler at night since each song has its own lighting package. Our Alien Swirling Saucer post has more photos and details.
Slinky Dog Dash
I really love Slinky Dog Dash. It is so much more thrilling than I expected and has such a smooth ride. The accessible ride vehicle is a lot like Seven Dwarfs Mine Train but it’s a little easier to get in and out of. Full review and photos are in our Slinky Dog Dash post.
The FastPasses at Disney’s Hollywood Studios are separated into two tiers. The first tier has all of the Toy Story Land attractions and the second tier has everything else. You can only choose one attraction from tier 1 so that means you get to pick two in tier 2.
I would recommend using your one Toy Story Land FastPass for Slinky Dog Dash. It’s the most popular attraction right now. I would also recommend making your FastPass early in the morning or later in the day when the sun is going down. (More on that below.) But if you don’t want to experience Slinky Dog Dash or can’t transfer then choose Toy Story Mania.
If you are planning on visiting all three attractions we recommend taking advantage of morning Extra Magic Hours if you are on staying on property. Or stopping by later at night. That’s when the wait times will be the shortest. And you’ve probably heard that there isn’t a lot of shade in Toy Story Land and the queues are primarily outside. This means you can get really hot really fast.
We rode Slinky Dog Dash using our FastPass at 1:00 pm in the afternoon. I felt overheated in our short wait plus it was hot on the attraction. We also went through the standby queue at night while the fireworks were going off. The wait was shorter than posted and with the fans in the queue we really didn’t get that hot. You are also more likely to get caught in a rain shower in the afternoon. It’s not fun getting stuck in an outdoor queue when it’s pouring rain.
Disney Tourist Blog has a great post for planning your day at Hollywood Studios.
Woody's Lunch Box
Woody’s Lunch Box is the new and only quick service location in Toy Story Land. It’s open for breakfast and lunch & dinner. It does offer mobile ordering through the My Disney Experience app. We definitely recommend using it to cut down on your wait time. All of the seating is outside so I wouldn’t dine here if it’s too hot outside. There are umbrellas but I don’t really enjoy eating when I’m really hot.
Because there is shade it can be hard to find a table. People tend to linger while they cool off. Also, there are a few tables that are super cute but the seats don’t move. (The seats look like Babybel cheese.) Those tables are not easy for wheelchair users to get to. It was the only table available when we went but a nice kid waiting on his family traded with us. It’s also another reason to use mobile order. You can wait for a table without a tray of food.
We had the vegan version of the “Totchos”. They were really good! They have vegan chili, potato barrels, corn chips, vegan cheese, and green onions. Mobile ordering also allows you to customize your meal. (Can you tell we like mobile ordering!) You can see how to veganize your order at Vegan Disney World.
