LAKE BUENA VISTA — Walt Disney World Resort found the perfect way to celebrate National Slinky Day: a reveal of the first attraction vehicle for Slinky Dog Dash, a brand-new family coaster coming to Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
The new Slinky Dog Dash will be among the ‘toy-riffic’ experiences found in the all-new 11-acre Toy Story Land that opens in summer 2018, part of a multi-year transformation of Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
“Toy Story Land will invite guests to step into the whimsical world of Pixar Animation Studios’ blockbuster films where playtime stretches longer than a Slinky Dog. Guests will feel like they’ve shrunk to the size of a toy as they play in Andy’s backyard with their favorite Toy Story pals,” says Disney Parks.
Inspired by the playful dachshund spinoff of Slinky, the classic American toy, Slinky Dog Dash will send riders dipping, dodging and dashing around turns and drops that Andy has created to stretch Slinky and his coils to the max.
Slinky Dog Dash will be joined in the new land by more Toy Story characters in another themed attraction: Alien Swirling Saucers.
The new land will also encompass what’s already one of the most popular Walt Disney World attractions, Toy Story Mania!
In 2019 Disney’s Hollywood Studios will add another major expansion when Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opens.
