PHOTOS: New Toy Story Shop Opens at Toy Story Mania’s Exit at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

Calling all toys! A brand new store has just opened today at the exit of Toy Story Mania!

Little was known about this small shop opening up, but it’s perfect for all Toy Story fans! With lots of merchandise for Toy Story 4, you’re sure to find the perfect toy to bring home with you.

As you come out of the exit to the Toy Story Mania attraction, you’ll find this new gift shop tucked away, but packed full of toys!

 

The store expands back quite a bit to house all these new toys for you to purchase. The trail of monkeys adorns the walls, as well as other drawings created by Andy and a few stickers.

There’s a section dedicated to each toy, where you can easily find a plethora of merchandise for your favorite character!

There’s lots of elements in this store that still make you feel like you’ve shrunk down to a toy, keeping the overall theme of the land. The large barrel of monkeys, Jenga pieces and Tinker Toys bring in elements of the outside land into this small gift shop.

There’s a small bank of registers in the back of the shop, but some very cute drawings from Andy adorn the walls by them.

The thematic elements continue, even for the signage on doors meant for Cast Members, or in this case, Andy’s Toys.

An addition to Disney wouldn’t be complete without a new wall for all your Instagram pictures. Guests can take off to infinity and beyond with Buzz Lightyear’s wings, heard sheep with Bo Peep’s staff or wrangle up critters with Sheriff Woody’s lasso.

The Buzz Lightyear wings are similar to the wall in Disney’s California Adventure that popped up last year for Pixar Fest. Now it has a more permament home here at Hollywood Studios!

What do you think of this new shop? Will you be falling with style to get your latest Toy Story merchandise or to snag a picture for your Instagram?

Wow. This seems both sad and desperate, especially with the balloons in front of the door. The same company that is building Galaxy’s Edge next door opens this Toy Story merchandise location? If the location is successful, executives are going to think that there was no need for a Big Al’s Toy Barn.

This is Andy’s backyard so Al’s Toy Barn would be out of place.

Big Al’s Toy Barn was in the original concept art, appearing to the left of the entrance, across from a western town.

Actually the original plan was for Als Toy Barn to be like a giant playset version of the store to make it fit in!

Shanghai’s Toy Story Land has one and it’s designed to look like a play set with a handle on the roof. The original DHS concept art also had this in it.

I’m in disbelief they even opened this. A handful of kiosks outside the ride exit would have been worlds better than this…

Looks more like an office/school than a Disney theme park merchandise store. The lack of windows, ceiling tiles, white walls and beige wood flooring is so generic.

Reminded me of a school cafeteria. Hopefully its just temporary!

I agree! It looks like it was an after-thought, like a repurposed cast member break room! Even if it was an after-thought, it shouldn’t look like it.

This looks like those traveling book sales that pop up at your kids elementary school…

This is not good.

Does this mean we will get “Villains in Vogue” back on Sunset Blvd? I was sad when they turned it into the Toy Story Land shop.
