When the first Toy Story film was released in 1995, it was wholly groundbreaking for being the first feature-length film entirely animated by computer (similarly to the release of Snow White in 1937, which was the first full-length traditionally animated feature film).

With memorable characters such as Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen), Sheriff Woody (Tom Hanks),  Bo Peep, Slinky Dog, and more, it’s no wonder that the film was an instant hit with kids.

Decades later, Toy Story Land would become an additional land in Walt Disney World’s Hollywood Studios. In this section of the Disney Park, Guests can meet classic Disney characters from the Toy Story series.

Similar to a character meet-and-greet with Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, or Daisy Duck, Guests can meet Woody, Buzz Lightyear, Bo Peep, and even Jessie at the Disney Park.

Across the world, Guests visiting Disneyland Paris can also meet Toy Story characters in Toon Plaza.

One Guest recently visited Disneyland Paris’s Sheriff Woody, and he brought some familiar toys to show the fan-favorite cowboy, resulting in an impromptu playtime.
