Ever since its official announcement back in 2015, fans have been skeptical of Disney’s plans to bring Toy Story Land to life at Disney's Hollywood Studios. However, Disney has faced criticism in the past and exceeded expectations before (most recently with Pandora - The World of Avatar), so hopes are high that this new land will be a nice addition to the park, even if plans for this new area aren't as expansive as those for the neighboring Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge land.
It may seem hard to believe, but we're actually just over six months away from this new land welcoming its first guests. And while Disney has yet to announce an official opening date (simply saying that this land will be open for Summer 2018), there have been a number of developments regarding the finer details of this new land you should definitely know about if you're planning a visit next year.
1. There will be a new quick service restaurant, but it won't be Pizza Planet
Earlier this week it was confirmed that Toy Story Land would be getting a new quick service dining location in addition to its two new rides. However, if you were hoping that the iconic Pizza Planet would be making an appearance here, you'd be wrong, as Disney has a completely different concept in mind for Toy Story Land that will help keep with the "shrinking guests down to the size of a toy" theme Disney announced back in 2015.
Known as Woody’s Lunch Box, this new quick service stop is will resemble a lunch box (complete with Tupperware) and thermos that has been transformed into a walk-up window that will serve both quick service meals and old-fashioned soda floats. Much like the Harmabe Marketplace at Disney's Animal Kingdom, this new location will not have an inside dining room, and will instead have a small amount of outdoor seating adjacent to the walkup window.
No information has been revealed about the menu for this new location, but we have a few guesses thanks to a new sponsorship deal that has also just been announced for Toy Story Land...
