Toy Story Land (opens June 30th)

The biggest thing happening this month happens the last day of the month.  Toy Story Land is opening in Hollywood Studios on June 30th.

If you will be at Disney World a bit earlier in the month, keep an eye out. There may be soft openings, where you can see parts of the land or ride before the official opening.

The premise to Toy Story Land is that you shrink to the size of a toy and play in Andy’s backyard with characters from the movies.
