“`A new eleven-acre land inspired by the animated movie Toy Story opens to the public this weekend at Disney’s Hollywood Studios just outside Orlando. Tim Allen, the voice of Buzz Lightyear, made a surprise guest appearance at an event celebrating Saturday’s opening.

“`For children of the mid-1990s, Disney’s new Toy Story Land offers an opportunity to visit the imaginary world they grew up in. For their parents, it brings back memories of a magical time of toys and make-believe. The new theme park land offers a whimsical experience from the moment a 20-foot statue of Sheriff Woody welcomes guests as if they are toys in Andy’s backyard.

“`You will find favorite characters — Sheriff Woody, Buzz Lightyear, Jessie, Slinky Dog, Mr. Potato Head and the Green Army Patrol — in the brightly colored land, along with two new attractions: Slinky Dog Dash and Alien Swirling Saucers. The park provides larger-than-life versions of classic toys and games like Rubik’s Cube, colorful Cootie bugs, Scrabble letters, building blocks, and Tinkertoys.  There are also benches built from Lincoln Logs. Also, dine at Woody’s Lunchbox.

“`The anticipated opening of Toy Story Land is one of the most anticipated events at theme parks this year. And, this continues Disney’s tradition of bringing movies to life.  Last year, Pandora-World of Avatar opened at the Florida theme park. Next year, lands based on Star Wars open at Disney parks in Florida and in California.

“`Toy Story Land is the result of a collaboration between the Disney Imagineers and their storytelling partners at Pixar Animation Studios. To infinity… and beyond !!
