Well, I have decided. I love these boards and value its members, but I think I have to take everything said with a HUGE grain of salt from now on. Just got back from The World, and I can say with 100% honesty that Toy Story Land is oozing with charm. Wow! What an adorable addition to Hollywood Studious. Slinky Dong Dash had a lot more thrill than I ever anticipated and it is such a fun experience- a new family favorite. While I wish Aliens was longer in duration it is nowhere near the travesty others on here would have you believe. I can't fathom why people would hate TSL so much. Tons of details, great food at Woody's Lunch Box, and bright colors that put the rest of the studios to shame. We loooooooved this new land!
Love your post and love that you loved it so much. I found the reality of the land to be much different after I actually visited. My wife and kids and I all loved it when we finally went to see it. I think that the land - aside from a lack of shade which still needs to be addressed - was a blast. My wife and I went early during EMHs and did all 3 rides within an hour. Slinky Dog Dash is a great, fun coaster. And I also agree with what you said about the Alien Swirling Saucers ride. It was fun to ride, but it was so much better at night. Actually, the entire land comes alive at night with all of the lighting effects. My main issue was the lack of shade. Waiting in line in Summer for SDD is brutal, as is the lack of shade at the eating area. The food was great but I was sweating eating it.
I have learned to take things with a grain of salt also as everyone's own opinions vary. There was a period of time where I would read about how horrible things had become at the parks on the forum that I was almost dreading going. Then I would go and would see things VERY differently. Glad to hear you enjoyed it so much!
