PHOTOS: Unsanitary Tables, Grimy Themed Structures, and Even More Peeling Decals Plague Woody’s Lunch Box in Toy Story Land

Two registers, a sea of peeling decals, and a surprisingly good vegan totchos dish. That’s the best way I can describe Woody’s Lunch Box in Toy Story Land, which despite being roughly over a year old, is looking pretty worse for wear these days. The restaurant has made some small strides with compostable plates and a simple, tasty menu that keeps families coming back (well, that and the fact that there are few other places to grab breakfast now that Docking Bay serves it on a rare scheduled basis, and not everyone is pining for a Ronto Wrap at 8:00 AM in the morning.) However, when eating here, it’s best not to look too closely at your surroundings, or your appetite for that Mini Babybel Cheese might start to wane.

Toy Story Land regularly tops our Weekly (yes, at one point it was weekly) Maintenance Reports because of the land’s shoddy craftsmanship. Built and maintained on a bare-minimum budget, the plastic fixtures may form a part of the toy-centric storyline, but the peeling paint doesn’t. Now it seems maintenance and upkeep issues are plaguing the land’s only eatery (for now), with questionable stains on umbrellas, considerable grime on the K’nex-themed pieces, corroded metals, and peeling paint and decals everywhere.

On many of the umbrella-topped tables, there are these questionable stains (could be dirt, could be feces) all along the toy bricks. There’s also considerable wear on the underside of the “Babybel wrapper” umbrellas.

Many parts have seen entire sheets of paint just peeled off, as with this piece that’s just bare metal at this point.

Peeling paint is seen on a number of other metal pieces, as well as corrosion from the rain and humidity.

The grooves of every K’nex piece is built up with grime and residue. It’s hard to believe they’ve ever been pressure washed at this point.

Food messes aside, this themed trash can is fully scratched up along the opening and the sides.

This themed decal is peeling at the corners and at seemingly odd spots where it’s been scratched or picked at by guests.

There is no scheduled refurbishment for Woody’s Lunch Box, and while these issues plague many outdoor eating areas throughout Walt Disney World, it’s especially apparent here, in a land that opened less than two years ago. With more and more guests funneling in for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance and soon, the opening of Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway, the area could benefit from a bit of a refurbishment… or at least a thorough cleaning.

Since I am a stock holder and may be just imagining, but I think that Disney is not keeping the Flordia properties up as well as, say, Disneyland. I feel that that the Flordia properties are being sacrificed for some reason that the public does not know. There just seems to be too much wrong.

Disneyland has always felt like the cleaner park. I’ve seen this topic discussed on micechat countless times over the years. Not. sure the reasoning. However Disneyworld always gets the bigger more expensive additions so it seems that’s where their funds go.

I’ve been to the Legoland park in Florida and it was at a similar level as this. I just think Florida theme parks in general get run down quickly because of the high amounts of tourists going through them.

Walt is surely spinning in his grave right now, and had he seen this kind of maintenance when he was alive… heads would be rolling!!!

Ugh. That’s an indication of either lacking maintenance procedures or poor execution of existing processes. While the paint can be overlooked until a scheduled maintenance project, there really is no excuse for the mold/grime/dirt on the umbrellas. The staff should be out there with Clorox Clean-up every day!

My mouth is watering thinking about all the clean and healthy food options that are offered in the parks now, the cooking areas cant be effected like these areas

I don’t get it. Did they skip primer and sealant on everything in that land to save a buck?
