Last week I posted the above picture and asked for guesses as to where it is located. Quite a few people new the park and area where these are located. However, five people knew exactly where in the area to find them.
Congratulations to Judy, Diane, Michael, Caroline, and Disney Dennis who all new that the blocks can be found in Toy Story Land at Hollywood Studios, and specifically at Slinky Dog Dash. This ride has become a favorite among a lot of guests and with good reason. It’s an outdoor roller coaster and has a pretty high peak at one point in the ride, so the views are great from Slinky. In fact, while Galaxy’s Edge was being built some construction work was visible from Slinky.
One of the fun features of this ride is the second launch, which other guests can watch from the bridge leading to the entrance. Here, guests stop briefly under arches that say “Go!”, a countdown begins, and then the arches light up and guests are launched into the second part of the ride. As the ride twists and turns, guests pass by familiar faces, like Jessie and Rex helping to string up the lights. At the end of the ride guests are treated to a song from Wheezy before they exit the ride vehicle. This is such a cute and fun ride!
Also in Toy Story Land are two other rides (Toy Story Mania! and Alien Swirling Saucers), a quick service location (Woody’s Lunch Box), and some merchandise carts that look like an old school toy camper and dump truck. A new table service restaurant and gift shop are also coming to Toy Story Land in 2022. Woody’s Backyard BBQ and Jessie’s Trading Post are the new restaurant and gift shop, respectively. Both of these are welcome additions, because there isn’t much shade in Toy Story Land. So both of these new establishments will provide some relief from the sun for guests.
While walking around Toy Story Land, make sure to look at the details. There is so much detail in this little land and it’s really fun to see. For example, Christmas lights are strung around held up by pencils and straws, and cheese seats and paper umbrellas are part of the seating area at Woody’s Lunch Box. One of the first things I noticed in this area are the footprints on the ground. The idea is that Andy built this area with his toys in his backyard, so of course there would be footprints.
Congratulations to those who knew where to find the blocks and thanks to everyone who played along! Another Where is it Wednesday picture will be up soon.
