Local Mom Scoop was invited to the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration #DSMMC to hear about all of the cool things happening at Walt Disney World.

The latest scoop is the new Toy Story Land opening June 30. You’ll be transported to Andy’s backyard feeling like the size of a toy as you walk along oversized blocks and other recognizable Toy Story characters.

On this 11-acre lot, you’ll see your favorite green Aliens who have powered up their flying saucers. Be ready for them to spin you into outer space during the Alien Swirling Saucers ride. Get on the Slinky Dog and go for a ride! The Slinky Dog Dash is a new thrilling ride that will have you twisting and turning through Toy Story Land along brightly colored tracks.

You can still head to the carnival and blast moving targets during Toy Story Mania. This fast-paced ride now has a 3rd track added. Wear your 3-D glasses aiming for targets while throwing cream pies and baseballs.

Leave it to Woody to be in charge of your dining. At Woody’s Lunch Box, he’ll be offering breakfast, lunch, and dinner.  Woody’s Lunch Box will feature classic American fare, old-fashioned soda floats, and other Toy Story-themed specialties.
