The excitement is building! Toy Story Land opens in under one week and Disney Parks shared a new behind the scenes video of the highly anticipated new land at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
Nighttime always seems to take you deeper into the story. No matter if you are walking down Main Street U.S.A at the Magic Kingdom or strolling through Future World at Epcot, nighttime just seems to bring out the best in the parks. Toy Story Land is no different.
The Imagineering team gives us a look at how the nighttime show is set inside Toy Story Land.
According to Imagineer Ryan Wineinger, seeing Toy Story Land lit up at night first time really wowed the project team.
“When you’re collaborating with Show Lighting and Pixar and composers, you think you understand just how dynamic it’s going to be when it comes together,” Ryan said. “But frankly nothing can really prepare you for the moment when you see all of that come together in harmony like it has tonight.”
And, according to Imagineer Dave Miniciello, experiencing the land’s two new attractions after dark makes the attractions thrilling in a whole new way.
“Riding Slinky Dog for the first time and riding tonight with the lighting and special effects and audio was so exciting,” Dave said. “After so many years of developing the different pieces, seeing it here in Toy Story Land all together with the Pixar team has been monumental for us.”
With only a few days until the official Toy Story Land opening it looks as if the new land is set to immerse us in the world of Toy Story. Are you ready to venture inside Andy’s backyard? Talk about it in our all-new WDW Kingdom Forums!
