“Walt Disney Presents” Gallery at Disney’s Hollywood Studios Showcases New Lands and Attractions

Guests to Disney’s Hollywood Studios can now get an insider’s look at the new Toy Story Land that opens at the theme park next summer.  The sneak peek is part of the new Walt Disney Presents gallery that opened September 8. The gallery is home to a never-before-seen model of the new land, concept renderings and maquettes of attraction vehicles and icons.

Visitors to the gallery will also discover a model of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge – another new land that will open in 2019 – and concept art of the new Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway attraction also under development.  Guests will get an idea of all the fun and exciting adventures being conjured up as part of a multi-year expansion of Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

Walt Disney Presents – renamed and reimagined from the former One Man’s Dream attraction – offers a self-guided stroll through Disney history. From Mickey Mouse to the Magic Kingdoms, guests are transported into the life and legacy of the man who started it all – Walt Disney.

From sketches, photos and storyboards to models, costumes, artwork, props and more, Walt Disney Presents is a Disney history book open wide. On display in this multimedia, interactive space is the original Audio Animatronic Abraham Lincoln from the 1964 New York World’s Fair. Walt’s second grade desk is among dozens of other one-of-a-kind finds on view. A film presentation celebrates his amazing life story.

Walt Disney Presents explores Walt’s boyhood life in small-town America, the founding of his first cartoon studio and his many contributions to the film industry.

Guests see firsthand how his ideas began to grow beyond the silver screen, as he explored the world of three-dimensional entertainment, culminating in the creation of the Disneyland and Walt Disney World Resorts. That legacy inspires his namesake company to stay true to his vision of innovation and excellence in the fields of animation, film and television, theme parks, resorts and much more. The new lands and coming attractions at Disney’s Hollywood Studios and theme parks around the globe continue Walt’s legacy.

Walt Disney Presents will also host character greetings as well as special sneak previews of upcoming Disney films.  For more information about the new Walt Disney Presents gallery and Disney’s Hollywood Studios, visit DisneyWorld.com.

Toy Story Land Model & More on Display Now at Walt Disney Presents

Walt Disney Presents, a re-imagined version of the One Man’s Dream attraction at Disney’s Hollywood Studios®, officially opens its doors to offer a new look at the past, present and future of Disney Parks.

One of the exciting pieces of the “future” that Walt Disney Presents showcases is a model of the park’s Toy Story Land expansion, which will be on display for your Clients to view starting today.

The Toy Story Land expansion, which will open in Summer 2018, will shrink guests to the size of a toy and allow them to explore all the fun of Andy’s backyard, which as you can see in these images, has been delightfully filled with familiar toys and sights from the “Toy Story” films.

You can also see some of the charming detail our Imagineers have created for this new land and its two major attractions – Slinky Dog Dash and Alien Swirling Saucers.

The Slinky Dog Dash attraction will be a family coaster themed as if Andy used his Mega Coaster Play Kit to build the ultimate coaster for Slinky. The land’s other major attraction, Alien Swirling Saucers, has been designed as a toy play set that Andy got from Pizza Planet, in which Aliens are flying around in their toy flying saucers and trying to capture guests’ rocket toy vehicles with “The Claw.”

But the Toy Story Land model isn’t the only exciting draw to Walt Disney Presents. Tracing Disney history from Walt Disney’s beginning sketches, photos and storyboards, the attraction celebrates milestones in Disney film and theme park history up through today and beyond. Expect to see models, maquettes, sketches, artist renderings, a portion of the Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge model, concept art for the new Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway attraction and more.

Walt Disney Presents will also continue to host greetings with characters like Star-Lord and baby Groot, plus special sneak previews of upcoming Disney films.

First Look: Slinky Dog Dash Ride Vehicle Arrives at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

The Slinky Dog Dash attraction, currently under construction in Toy Story Land, celebrated a major milestone today – National Slinky Day – with the reveal of the coaster’s first Slinky Dog ride vehicle.

Slinky Dog Dash is one of two major attractions coming to Toy Story Land, a 12-acre expansion that’s set to open at Disney’s Hollywood Studios® in Summer 2018. In Toy Story Land, guests will shrink to the size of a toy and explore the world of Andy’s backyard on two fun family attractions – Slinky Dog Dash and Alien Swirling Saucers.

Slinky Dog Dash is a family coaster themed as if Andy built it in his backyard using his Mega Coaster Play Kit and some of his other favorite toys. The attraction’s ride vehicles, inspired by the character of Slinky in the film, will send riders dipping, dodging and dashing around turns and drops Andy has created to stretch Slinky’s coils to the max.

The second attraction, Alien Swirling Saucers, is designed as a toy play set that Andy got from Pizza Planet, inspired by the first “Toy Story” film. Aliens are flying around in their toy flying saucers and trying to capture your rocket toy vehicle using “The Claw.”
