Toy Story Land Shows Off Wheezy Animatronic, Alien Swirling Saucers, Merch and More.


Today Disney announced new information on their upcoming 11 acre Toy Story Land at Disney’s Hollywood Studios that is scheduled to officially open on June 30th, 2018.

The biggest news was that the Wheezy figure in Sling Dog Dash attraction is an all-new Audio-Animatronics figure that will be in the last scene of the ride. The penguin toy featured in Toy Story 2 will be singing “You’ve Got a Friend in Me.” Take a look at the new Wheezy Audio-Animatronics here.

The first publicly released photos of Alien Swirling Saucers was also released today along with some short videos.

Designed as a playset Andy won at the Pizza Planet restaurant, this all-new attraction is out-of-this-world fun. “Toy Story” green aliens have powered up their flying saucers and earthbound guests get to play along. In rocket ship toys, guests swirl and whirl among toy planets and space stations as part of the game while “The Claw” hangs overhead.

New merchandise for Toy Story Land was also featured including this light up Slinky Dog toy. It was the only appealing thing to me but check out the video below for the full line up and demonstration of each.

Also announced was that Sarge and the Green Army Man Drum Corps will be marching in Toy Story Land a few times a day. Buzz, Woody, and Jesse will also be in Toy Story Land. Mysteriously missing from this was any mention of Lotso who was prominently featured just a few days ago at the opening of Toy Story Land in Shanghai Disneyland.
