With Walt Disney World closed for now and Disney lovers missing their favorite attractions, the Disney Parks blog is bringing fans along on a series of virtual rides.

The latest is the beloved Slinky Dog Dash found at Toy Story Land at Disney's Hollywood Studios. Toy Story Land opened in 2018 and "Slink," the beloved character for which the family friendly coaster is named, was the first multi-launch coaster in Disney history.

The attraction features a coaster track that Andy has built all over his backyard using his Mega Coaster Play Kit and other toys. A rider has views of all of Toy Story Land. After a series of dips, twists and turns, Slinky Dog Dash riders end the adventure with a serenade of "You've Got a Friend in Me" from Wheezy. The penguin who was once pushed to the back of the shelf takes a top spot.

As you ride along virtually, you'll learn fun facts about Slinky Dog Dash and Toy Story Land. Can you spot Rex’s original toy box or the famous Pixar ball? How many other toys do you see while whooshing around the backyard? And can you guess how big Andy’s footprint actually is? (Hint: it would be the equivalent of a size 240 shoe).
