This Month at Disney World – June 2018

There are always new and exciting things happening at Disney World.  Here are some things we are looking forward to this month.

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.

Toy Story Land is bringing 2 new rides to Hollywood Studios – Slinky Dog Dash Roller Coaster and Alien Swirling Saucers.  Don’t worry though, Toy Story Mania isn’t going anywhere.  It will be incorporated into the new land.

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.

Personally I’m sad a a bit disappointed the Great Movie Ride was closed, but I am excited for this new Mickey Mouse ride.

TCM presents The Great Movie Ride

I can fully admit I will miss the Great Movie Ride. I’m a sucker for sentimentality and old movies are chock full of it. But even Mickey was a fan (and he’s not really into sentimentality or slow moving rides). He was even willing wait in a 60 minute line, when 40 minutes is almost always his limit. I am sure the adult beverages I plied him with helped, but I didn’t get any complaints even in the August heat. The Great Movie Ride had something for everyone. Continue reading
