Toy Story Land is Opening Soon! Here are 10 Things We Hope to Experience


3. We’ve got to see if eBay or Amazon sells school-bus-sized backpacks.

This experience will most likely remain one of those fantastical dreams we Toy Story fans have. Though we have yet to see them for ourselves, we are told that inside Toy Story Land, we will see larger-than-life likenesses of Woody and Buzz. And they’re so big, you’d need a backpack the size of a school bus if you wanted to carry the two toys around with you! (Photo credit: Disney)

2. We’re going to take lots of photos while standing in Andy’s footprint.

It makes sense that we’re going to see a footprint or two in Toy Story Land—the setting for the new land is Andy’s backyard, and Andy’s quite a bit bigger than his beloved toys. In fact, the footprint Andy has left in his backyard inside Toy Story Land is the size of a footprint you’d leave if you wore size 240 shoes and traipsed through the backyard when the ground was muddy. Won’t that make for a fun photo op! We aren’t sure yet whether we will see the footprint from afar, or if we will be able to stand in it. Diehard Toy Story fans are hoping for the latter.

1. We just can’t wait to take in every square foot of this Toy Story fans’ wonderland!

This is the part I’m most looking forward to. I can’t wait to walk around Toy Story Land, soaking up every detail Imagineers have no doubt included in their most recent undertaking. Imagineers do not cut corners on anything they do, and we can bet this fascinating land will be more proof of that. How many building blocks will we see? How many Christmas lights are strung around the land? How realistic is that vintage Woody lunch box? After such a long wait for Toy Story Land, fans will want to take in every part of the new land—thoroughly and slowly. We can’t wait!

Walt Disney World’s official website has debuted a countdown to the opening of Toy Story Land. Head to and search “Toy Story Land” to see just how many days, hours, minutes and seconds remain until we can finally walk into the new Toy Story wonderland!

About Becky Burkett

I'm an enthusiastic writer who finds joy in random things like cold weather, snow, "I Love Lucy," "The Andy Griffith Show," journals full of blank paper, countdowns to Christmas, the month of December, "Toy Story," "Sleeping Beauty," my 4 kids, my 4 shih tsus, Disney Parks history, Imagineering and visiting the parks. I think Walt Disney is the standard against which genius should be measured. I love to write about Disney Parks, Disney history, all things Imagineering and PIXAR. I adore the colors, story and art direction of Disney's "Sleeping Beauty" (Team Make it Blue!), and "Toy Story" is life (minus "Toy Story 4"). I believe Walt Disney was so much more than an entertainment and theme park tycoon; I believe he was a savant with a vision for life and how it could be if happiness and kindness are strived for. I love Biergarten at EPCOT and 1900 Park Fare at Disney's Grand Floridian. You can find me croonin' with the birdies at the Enchanted Tiki Room, chillin' on the PeopleMover or hangin' with Woody and the gang at Toy Story Land. I'm always looking for Imagineers in the parks, and I'd rather meet Joe Rohde and Tony Baxter than anyone in Hollywood! Hey, if you dream it, you really can do it!
