Are you ready to play big? After months of teasing us with sneak peeks and behind-the-scenes images and video, Disney World finally opened their highly anticipated Toy Story Land just before the Fourth of July. Guests traveling to the Florida destination can find themselves literally “shrunk” down to the size of a toy to spend some quality time with Sheriff Woody, Buzz Lightyear, and the rest of Andy’s friends.
The brand new land — situated in Hollywood Studios behind the already existing Toy Story Midway Mania — includes two brand new attractions: Alien’s Swirling Saucers and Slinky Dog Dash. It’s this second one that is the real treat for guests visiting the park, because it’s a not-too-scary roller coaster that packs enough punch for adults but is not too crazy for little kids, either. Even better? Because you can’t have a brand new land without some brand new merch, Disney has released a *Slinky Dog* set of ears and it’s something you’re going to need to add to your ever-growing collection ASAP. Soon you’ll be like “rose gold Minnie ears, who?”
While we’re used to seeing new Mickey ears, we’ve never seen anything quite like the Slinky Dog ones before. Gone are the actual ears, and instead we’ve got an elongated Slinky Dog body with a cute little head, replete with a coil spring.
Currently, the Slinky Dog ears can only be found at Hollywood Studios (both inside Toy Story Land, and also scattered around the park if the lines are still so long you can’t make it inside…) and they’re going fast. You might even say they’re, ahem, dashing off the shelves.
