The Toy Story Land Preview At Walt Disney World

Toy Story Land Comes to Life in Florida

The newest Disney-Pixar attraction opens on June 30

If you're headed south this summer, there's a new Land to discover at Disney's Hollywood Studios in Florida. Toy Story Land opens for business on Saturday, June 30, but photographers got a preview on June 28, with a sneak peek at all the attractions. This is actually the fourth Toy Story Land, but the first one in the United States: Three previous lands have already opened in Paris, Hong Kong, and Shanghai. The beloved animated movie "Toy Story" opened in theaters in 1995, when it first introduced audiences to Woody, Buzz Lightyear, and the rest of their posse of toys come to life. Two sequels followed, and another is in production now.
