Toy Story Land is officially open, and it’s time to play big in Andy’s Backyard! With new attractions, food, and so many little details to discover, you’re going to want to have a game plan when you visit. To help you prepare, here are a few top tips for making the most of your time at Toy Story Land.
Be Rope-Drop Ready
When it comes to popular attractions at Walt Disney World, it pays off to set an early alarm! If you’re looking to conquer all three Toy Story Land attractions with minimal time spent waiting in line, Rope Drop is the way to go. For those who haven’t heard of Rope Drop, this is the moment when the park officially opens for the day. You’ll want to arrive 30 minutes to an hour before Disney’s Hollywood Studios is set to open to ensure that you have time to make it through bag check and into the gates before it gets too busy.
Book a FastPass+ in Advance
With the recent opening of Toy Story Land, Disney’s Hollywood Studios has updated its FastPass+ options for Tiers 1 and 2. When it comes time to choose the Tier 1 attraction, guests will have to choose between the three attractions in Andy’s Backyard. Since only one can be selected for a FastPass+, this is where that Rope Drop strategy will really come into play! If you know you’ve got a FastPass+ for one attraction, you’ll be sure to ride the other two attractions during that first hour that you’re in the park for Rope Drop. Guests staying on property can book FastPass+ up to 60 days in advance and guests staying off property can book them up to 30 days in advance. Toy Story Land FastPasses are the first to go, so take advantage of the 30-60 day head start!
Take Advantage of Mobile Ordering
Toy Story Land offers one quick service restaurant in the area: Woody’s Lunch Box. From Lunch Box Tarts to S’mores French Toast and Totchos (Tater Tot Nachos), there are a lot of yummy things to try. The best way to cut down on time spent waiting for food is to place a Mobile Order. Using your My Disney Experience app, you can select all of your toy-rific goodies, place your order and wait for your name to be called to pick it up. Pro Tip: Send someone in your party to scout out a table while you wait. It can get pretty hot in Andy’s Backyard, so the sooner you find a seat in the shade, the better.
Save Time for Exploring
There’s something about being shrunk down to the size of a toy that makes you feel like a kid again. Disney Imagineers really went the extra mile when it came to details for this fun new land. From Buster’s collar to Andy’s gigantic footprints along the path, there’s no denying you’re in Andy’s Backyard. After checking out the attractions and food, take some time to admire Andy’s creativity throughout the area. Board games, blocks and even school supplies like pencils are scattered around Andy’s Backyard to create the ultimate toy playground.
Andy’s Backyard is a Disney’s Hollywood Studios must-do that you won’t want to miss. Use these tips to get ready to play big in Toy Story Land. To Infinity and Beyond!
