Back in February, Disney announced that Toy Story Land at Disney's Hollywood Studios would finally debut in the middle of summer on June 30th, to somewhat of a lackluster response from fans. However, even though fan anticipation for this new land hasn't exactly been on par with that of Avatar - The World of Pandora or the upcoming Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, Disney is actually expecting some pretty huge things from this new land, and has even restructured its FastPass+ lineup to make all of Toy Story Land's attractions (including the existing Toy Story Mania) Tier 1 in an effort to stem foot traffic in this land during the summer.
However, even though it looks like things are pretty much lined up for Toy Story Land's debut this summer, this upcoming land has hit a few important milestones over the past few days that seem to indicate that Toy Story Land could be ready to debut a bit ahead of schedule
1. New Toy Story Land sign installed
Earlier this week Disney added one of the final details to Toy Story Land, installing a new sign (pictured above) welcoming guests to this new land, alongside the giant Woody statue that was depicted in both the concept art and model inside Walt Disney Presents attraction. Still, the fact that Disney has installed this new sign already is a positive development, and shows that this land is just about ready to make its debut. And speaking of the June 30th opening of this new land...
2. Toy Story Land FastPass+ reservations now available for resort guests
Though Toy Story Land FastPass+ reservations have been available for some time for guests who pay extra, this week reservations for Slinky Dog Dash and Alien Swirling Saucers opened up for guests staying at Walt Disney World hotels. If any remain after 30 days, reservations should open up for annual passholders next month, so guests should stay glued to My Disney Experience if they want to experience these new attractions with minimal wait during this land's opening days.
