To see some picturesand to read more informations about the new Toy Story Playland, please go to DISNEY AND MORE.

If you have read the Disney&More article, you will see that the theming is good, but the rides are... ugh!! The most horrible I've ever seen for a Disney Park!! A Parachute drop??? An RC "coaster"??? But, most of all, did you see the Slinky dog ride???? I have no words. Good theming, horrible rides.

What do you think? i personally hope they open soon the Ratatouille dark ride. And it has to be great, otherwise the Studios in Paris will sink even more....


  1. I agree, the theming overall is really nice, but the rides are simple and state fair-ish...

    I still don't understand what the slinky dog ride is! A merry-go-round?

  2. The theming is very cute, but, yeah, those are typical Six Flags HUSS and MACK rides. I can't believe any Imagineers created those rides--nothing innovative there. I guess WDS is the new DCA.

    Like Imagineer87, I am wondering what the Slinky Dog ride is? Does it just go around in a circle?

    I think the purpose of the very detailed theming is to hopefully distract guests from the common carnival rides.

  3. Right back at Jen- I agree with your last sentence, distracting the guests, I never thought about it like that :)

    My guess is that people will go explore the area for a bout 2 weeks- (3 max) and realize: "Hey, this isn't worth an hour wait!"

  4. I too agree that the great theming is a way of "hiding" the obvious failure of these new "rides" that are really worthless for a Disney Park!!

    And imagine that the queue line for the RC racer has been designed to sustain a 100-minute queue!!! They think this land will be a glorious hit or they just know that the ride has a very low capacity??

    By the way, the Slinky Dog thing is just a merry-go-round!!! It doesn't go anywhere, just like Dumbo, but it doesn't even fly!!! Really, what a shame!
    Quoting Jen: "I guess WDS is the new DCA".... SOOO TRUE!!
