WDW Imagineers Ready Slinky Dog Dash Ride Vehicle at Disney's Hollywood Studios Toy Story Land

As you know, Slinky Dog Dash, one of two major attractions planned for Toy Story Land at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, has arrived at the park.

 The ride vehicle, which is themed after the character of Slinky from “Toy Story,” took Imagineers from multiple disciplines a few years to design, so the group was thrilled to see the finished product arrive on the site firsthand. According to the Imagineers, the vehicle was created to reflect Slinky’s personality, the movement and motion of a Slinky toy, and of course Slinky’s adorable look which will be visible throughout the land as the coaster moves along the track.

 “This is a ride for the whole family: it’s fun, it’s exciting, it’s thrilling, but it’s not scary,” said Imagineer Bob Vignec. “It’s a rollercoaster, but it’s also this fun character that will be out in the land. You sort of get a little bit of goosebumps seeing it here for the first time.”

 Toy Story Land is set to open at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in summer 2018.

Anyone else notice that the shape of the pieces under the blue tarp when the ride was "delivered" do not match the "box" that is opened up? Some creative editing and staging going on...
