^ I read about that on one of the Disney sites. Looks interesting.
Would be pretty cool, if they could pull this addition, off.

This could be Disney's way of also introducing more alcohol bars/places
that feels more adult to the park. And considering they're going to create
a bar in Star Wars Land, this could be the start of more alcohol (and beer!)
in the Studios.

:mickey:

Just checked. On WDWNewsToday they confirmed the park is going ahead
with the bar. And that it will be where a "desk is at the ride's exit" is. By the
look of the photo taken below, they'll probably cordon it off with the chairs
and tables - or a chain link fence. :wink:

This must be the place. Eventually.

There's not much known about it yet, so it's hard to discuss. I LOVE the idea though. Although I fear it will become the new Trader Sams and all the hardcore fans will keep it ridiculously crowded all the time.

I read the article and it is not the Tip Top Club.


Anyway, it would be cool if at a certain time, the power would go out and the ghosts on the ride appears in the club briefly.

A new Toy Story Land article on the official blog:

https://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2016/04/first-look-toy-story-land-attractions-at-disneys-hollywood-studios/

In Toy Story Land, you’ll find yourself shrunk to the size of a toy to explore the world of Andy’s backyard with your favorite Toy Story characters, including Woody and Buzz. There are two new themed attractions being developed for Toy Story Land.

The first – Slinky Dog Dash – will be a family coaster attraction you’ll want to ride again and again. The attraction features a coaster track that Andy has built all over his backyard using his Mega Coaster Play Kit, but as you know, he has a pretty amazing imagination, so he’s combined it with some of his other toys, according to Imagineer Kathy Mangum. Take a look at a concept video of Slinky Dog Dash that Kathy shared earlier.



On Slinky Dog Dash, you will zip, dodge and dash around many turns and drops that Andy has created to really make Slinky and his coils stretch to his limits.

The second all-new attraction in Toy Story Land will be Alien Swirling Saucers. This attraction is designed as a toy play set that Andy got from Pizza Planet, inspired by the first Toy Story film. Aliens are flying around in their toy flying saucers and trying to capture your rocket toy vehicle with “The Claw.”

As you rotate around the toy planets and satellites as part of the game, you’ll swirl to the beat of fun “Space Jazz” music developed just for this experience, Mangum said. The music, the lighting, and the sound effects will add to the flurry of your adventure while “The Claw” looms ominously over you.

Also today, Mangum shared an update that beginning Memorial Day weekend, even more guests will be able to experience Toy Story Mania with the addition of a third track.

From that video, we can easily tell this is going to be a Mack Rides coaster. (The lap-bar shape, the drilled wheels and the ties shape that is flattened on both ends)

I wrote the book about donkeys!

I love the Slinky Dog coaster idea. I think it will be a multi-launch family coaster that everyone will enjoy as a mild thrill for kids and a coaster credit adults will enjoy b/c like everything disney does it will be so well themed.

A donkey is a domesticated member of the Equidae or horse family.
