As the countdown inches closer and closer to the opening of the brand new Toy Story Land at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, now that I’ve seen the all-new merchandise that will be released, I’m going to need an extra suitcase to bring it all home with me.
We will be there opening day to bring you all the magic of Andy’s Backyard, and check out at just a few of the new items that can be yours! Today, we’re getting a glimpse into the toy box to reveal additional collectibles and unique gifts inspired by the newest land opening at Disney’s Hollywood Studios on June 30. Like roles in a play, product designers cast merchandise to extend the story of Toy Story Land, explained Brad Schoeneberg, director, Merchandise Strategy and New Park Experiences Development.
“Merchandise that is true to the story ties everything together,” he said. “Each piece was designed so parents and kids could take their memories home and relive the fun of Toy Story Land long after their Disney vacation.”
“Toy Story” characters beloved by young and old have starring roles in the playful merchandise guests will be able to purchase from two retail stands found in the 11-acre land.
Park-goers can make a fashion statement with unique headbands, or stylish apparel splashed with “Toy Story” characters such as Sheriff Woody, Buzz Lightyear and Jessie. The “I Played There” commemorative T-shirts tell the world the wearer was among the first guests to experience Toy Story Land.
Guests can wear Slinky Dog, the inspiration for the Slinky Dog Dash family coaster, with a new light-up toy. His stretching slinky rings are perfect for nighttime fun at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
Space alien-themed light-up tumblers, a coffee cup, a kids’ backpacks, and a retail MagicBand all will celebrate the new land.
Passholders destined for a day of play will find an exclusive pin, tote bag and seasonal ornament created especially for them.
A treasure trove of pins and accessories is sure to delight pin traders of all ages. Attraction logo pins or a mystery pin set with pins resembling toy blocks emblazoned with character silhouettes are the must-have items for any pin collection.
Guests can find the full line of merchandise toward the end of June in select shops at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, including Beverly Sunset on Sunset Boulevard, In Character, and Mickey’s of Hollywood.
