Select active-duty military personnel and their families were treated to a surprise sneak-peak of the new Toy Story Land at Disney’s Hollywood Studios one day prior to the 11-acre themed park’s grand opening.
As part of their special VIP preview, the military families from all branches had the opportunity to meet real-life Buzz Lightyear, actor Tim Allen, and test out Toy Story Land’s two all-new attractions.
The families zipped around Andy’s backyard on the Slinky Dog Dash coaster and climbed aboard rocket ships on Alien Swirling Saucers.
The special preview was a way for Disney to thank and honor the service members and their families for their military service, according to a Disney World spokesman. Toy Story Land officially opens at Disney World on Saturday.
