As you can see, a fair amount of the roller coaster track for the Slinky Dog Dash attraction has already been installed. Photos were taken by @bioreconstruct on twitter.

In the first photo, is that the alien ride in the top right corner?

A crappy roller coaster and a spin ride… I can’t get excited about this.

Makes sense, but I doubt they care. DHS is in desperate need for family rides and throughput… and right or wrong they are extremely popular, satisfying to the average guest, and is the absolute right move for this park.

Im with you. Disney doesn’t do well with roller costers outside.

It’s a shame that the track looks so short. Not much of a ride.

This is only about half of the track installed, take a look at the concept art, there is much more to be installed! http://www.trbimg.com/img-5720dc8c/turbine/os-april-2016-rendering-toy-story-land-at-disney-s-hollywood-studios-in-florida-20160427

It will be a fairly short ride, but what is shown in that picture is only half the track. There is a second launch going out towards the right in those pictures.

Gotcha! Thanks! However, I was hoping to have at least one more adult type ride in the new section. Hey, I’m a HUGE Disney World fan no matter what and I absolutely love even the most childish rides in Disney World. However, it seems more often than not, they put an overflow of shorter and more kid rides just to get an attraction in. Wish they would get a little more creative with some of these.

It’s gonna be like Disney HK’s Toy Story land: pure fair style kiddie rides

Yeah Pete, I know. Unfortunate and disappointing to say the least.

Another thing to consider is that even though these may be aimed at kids, both rides will likely have height limits, so there will still only be two rides in the park without height restrictions.

Have to respectfully disagree. DHS is so short on kids rides I don’t know if I would bother taking younger kids there. There will be 2 new adult rides in SW Land. Makes sense to add a kids ride in Toy Story Land- which primarily appeals to kids in the first place.

If this was the intention, why add two rides that will likely have height restrictions?

maybe this should be moved to DCA and take over the boardwalk area. If it’s true Toy Story land should be like a kiddish fair type it may make sense to do over on the west coast.

I will enjoy Toy Story Land. I don’t know what Slinky Dog Dash coaster will feel like. I may try it out though.
