YUM! on the Food Offerings! I know this is only available during this event's time.
But could this be possibly be also, some of what might be served in the
not-too-distant-future, on a remote planet outpost far, far away? :wink:

And right now, I would order a GALLON of Dueling Gazpacho done, LOL!
And I would duel among friends and frenemies alike! Go! Mean Girls On! BRDWY!

I believe the original concept art for it, had dug out trenches and hills to go with the coaster. This may be a compromise to that.


Yeah, I guess that makes enough sense. It would be really cool if down the road they added some sort of Aquatopia-esque trackless ride that traveled the path. RC Racer vehicles would work well with that concept if not for issues with scale. It also has potential to be some sort of maze similar to Alice in Wonderland in Shanghai.

Only reason I'm intrigued is because the slinky coaster sits on a pretty huge plot for just one attraction. Anyway, I'm really looking forward to seeing the finishing touches put into this area.

^ With Disney.......you never really know, right? :wink:
And I thought of Alice too, with some of the configurations
within that helix area of the coaster. Very cool looking.

Track visual inspection and weld inspection during normal maintenance most likely.

So there's rumors floating around that all three Toy Story Land rides will be in Tier 1 for FP+ and every other attraction in the park will be bumped down to Tier 2. If true I think for most people on here that makes their plans for this park pretty easy. as you can get a FP+ for both Tower and RnR Coaster, then one of Slinky or Midway Mania and head to the other right at opening.

Once Mickeys Railway and the two new Star Wars attractions open up it'll become a much more interesting decision.

I predict Star Wars will be a straight up Up-charge to book Fastpasses for, or at least something they haven't done before. This park will be crazy once it opens. AWESOME crazy, but seriously crazy. Battle Escape, Millennium Force, Toy Story Mania, Slinky Dog, Alien Saucers, Star Tours, Runaway Railway, Tower of Terror, Rockin' Rollercoaster, and Muppets is a ridiculous lineup. That's almost all E-Ticket-level attractions and doesn't even include Indy, Frozen, Fantasmic or regular Fireworks which are also must-dos.

You know you're a coaster nerd when...

^^ It really is an amazing lineup (eventually) of "Disney E-Class" Attractions, that will make visiting this park
in the not-too-distant future, a definite thing to consider for us. One can only hope. And buy lottery tickets. :wink:

I was able to take advantage of a Toy Story Land Preview today...boy oh boy was it amazing. Disney treated us like total VIPs. Slinky Dog had an almost walk-on level wait time and I rode 7 times. The ride reminds me of a slightly souped up and launched version of Seven Dwarves, it crawls over some elements but the ride is perfect for young families, the height requirement is only 38 inches I believe. I didn't get any airtime, but still a ton of fun, front seat was my favorite.

But the DETAILS in this land. They are incredible. much better than the land in Paris, there are so many cute elements, humor, new life-size versions of classic toys. Honestly I expected much less, but I left wanting to come back, Slinky Dog really anchors everything visually. Hollywood Studios is going to be my favorite park down here when 2019 is over.
