Where can you find Toy Story at Disney World? We are sharing where you can see Toy Story characters and Toy Story rides at Walt Disney World.
Toy Story characters can be found at Magic Kingdom and Hollywood Studios.
Guests can find an entire area dedicated to Toy Story at Toy Story Land in Hollywood Studios that includes places to eat and attractions.
Toy Story Land at Hollywood Studios
Toy Story Land at Disney’s Hollywood Studios is a bright and fun land themed to the beloved franchise.
In June of 2018 Toy Story Land opened! We have visited numerous times since it opened and each time we love exploring the area.
As you enter you are welcomed by a giant Woody or Buzz Lightyear, depending on where you enter from. You can see on the Toy Story land map below that guests are welcomed by Buzz coming from Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge or Woody.
There are photographers available at the Woody entrance and there is often a line.
Toy Story Land Rides
Slinky Dog Dash
Slinky Dog Dash is a family friendly roller coaster. The lines for this attraction are one of the longest at the park and I highly recommend using Genie+ to reserve a lightning lane or riding it as soon as you enter the park.
It has a few surprises during the ride and is a bit more thrilling than it appears. Most kids love it! There is a 38″ height requirement for this attraction.
Toy Story Mania!
Toy Story Mania has been at Hollywood Studios for years and the entrance was moved to make it accessible from Toy Story Land. This is a favorite among Toy Story fans and is so much fun.
Guests will shoot at targets and try to score points in the Toy Story themed carnival style games. This ride is for all ages and has no height requirement.
Alien Swirling Saucers
Alien Swirling Saucers is a spinning attraction that is themed to the Green Aliens from the Toy Story movies.
This attraction typically has the shortest wait at of all three of the Toy Story rides but can still see over a 30-60 minute wait.
I love that the music during the ride changes depending on the season and this is a fun ride for families. There is a 32″ height requirement to ride.
I suggest prioritizing Slinky Dog Dash, Toy Story Mania!, and Alien Saucers in that order.
Where to Eat at Toy Story Land
Currently there is one quick-service dining option in the land, Woody’s Lunchbox. They are also opening a sit-down restaurant Roundup Rodeo BBQ.
Woody’s Lunchbox is a quick-service restaurant. Guests order from the window and called when their order is ready. I highly suggest using mobile ordering during your visit to save time waiting in line.
Woody’s Lunchbox has breakfast, lunch, and dinner options. A few of our favorites are the Breakfast Bowl, S’mores French Toast Sandwich, and Potato Barrels. I share a few in the video below.
Check out Woody’s Lunchbox Menu here.
Roundup Rodeo BBQ
Roundup Rodeo is a table service restaurant that will immerse guests into a world surrounded by their favorite toys.
As of right now this will not have character dining but will offer guests an option to have a sit down meal in Toy Story Land.
This restaurant will be very popular and I predict reservations will go fast. This will be located behind the Woody entrance to Toy Story Land.
Roundup Rodeo BBQ will open March 23, 2023. Check it out here.
Character Dining at Toy Story Land
Currently there is no character dining at Toy Story Land or with Toy Story characters at Disney World.
Meeting Characters at Toy Story Land
Guests can meet Woody and Jessie in Toy Story Land. Before COVID guests could also meet Bo-Peep. Check the times and characters on the My Disney Experience app for most up-to-date info.
One of the most fun meet and greet is seeing the Green Army men walking around. They are super interactive, fun to meet, and can usually stop for a picture.
Characters are fun to meet but there are also a lot of fun photo-ops including the Checkerboard wall at the exit of Toy Story Mania, Toy Story Block Wall located near the restrooms, and the Popsicle Stick Wall across from the Checkerboard wall.
You can also take your picture with the giant Pixar ball. Be sure to give yourself a bit of time to explore and check out the hidden surprises in Toy Story Land.
Toy Story Land Tips
The biggest complaint about Toy Story Land is the lack of shade. Slinky Dog and Alien Swirling Saucers have lines that are outside. Toy Story Mania is an inside queue, thankfully air conditioned.
The lack of places to sit and find shade can be difficult, especially during the summer months. Plan to visit early or late in your day.
Try to visit twice during your Hollywood Studios day. The land is best experienced during the day and at night.
I love seeing the land all lit up. I like to plan attractions during the morning and then allow time to explore in the evening.
I also found that the area is small and often crowded. Make sure your kids are close by and holding hands as you enter the land.
If you have time and it is not super crowded take your time to notice all the attention to details. You can find a giant Andy footprint on the ground and more little details that really make this land come together.
Toy Story at Magic Kingdom
Although most of the Toy Story experiences are at Hollywood Studios you can also find Buzz Lightyear at the Magic Kingdom.
Buzz Lightyear has a meet and greet and Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin attraction. This is a fun for all ages dark ride that has guests aiming for targets to defeat Zurg.
Lines typically get along after lunch and stay over 30 minutes until late in the day. If you are using Genie+ try to secure a late afternoon lightning lane or ride early(or late) in the day.
Whether you are visiting Magic Kingdom or Hollywood Studios the Toy Story attractions are fun for all ages.
