To celebrate the announcement, Disney brought a piece of the new land right to New York City's Times Square. Slinky Dog Dash is one of many attractions in the new 11-acre Toy Story Land where guests will shrink to the size of a toy and be surrounded by giant versions of childhood toys.

“With set pieces, staging, attractions and experiences Toy Story Land represents the best of Walt Disney Imagineering’s collaboration with our storytelling partners at Pixar Animation Studios,” said Bob Chapek, chairman of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts. “This new land will place guests inside the wondrous world of Woody, Buzz and their pals – and invite everyone to experience the joy of being a toy.”

While the original "Toy Story" movie was released in 1995, Toy Story Midway Mania opened at Disney's Hollywood Studios and Disney's California Adventure in 2008.

One of the main attractions include Slinky Dog Dash, a ride for the whole family where Slinky Dog twists his coils around curves, hills and drops across Toy Story Land. Alien Swirling Saucers is another fun attraction for guests where they will board a toy rocket for a spin through space.
