One of the great things about Disney Parks is that they're never completed. There's always something new and interesting going on, giving you a reason, or at least an excuse, to keep returning. While the biggest update in park history, Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, isn't set to open until 2019, there's plenty new on the way, as well as the return of some great events, at Walt Disney World this year.
Here's a rundown of what you can expect if you're planning to spend some time at Walt Disney World in 2018
Slinky Dog Dash
The biggest new addition to Walt Disney World this year will be the new Toy Story Land opening this summer at Disney's Hollywood Studios. Two big attractions will be part of the new Pixar inspired area. The first is the Slinky Dog Dash, a roller coaster that will be fun for the whole family. It's designed to look like, well, a toy, of course. Specifically a Mega Coaster playset that Andy has constructed in his backyard. It should make for a fun introduction to roller coasters for a lot of smaller guests, which will hopefully lead to a lot more fun on Space Mountain later in life.
Alien Swirling Saucers
The second Toy Story Land attraction will have the Toy Story aliens in flying saucers chasing after guests in rocket ships. They'll all be rotating around planets while The Claw looms ominously overhead. The ride is based on the first Toy Story movie and the coin-op claw machine that the aliens all came from. Concept art makes the ride look like an updated and expanded version of the classic Mad Tea party teacups, which should be a fun ride for everybody, even those not into roller coasters.
In addition to these two new Toy Story Land rides, the currently existing Toy Story Mania ride will be expanded on, giving it a third track so that even more guests can use the ride, helping with line issues.
