Here's a look at the walk up Woody's Lunch Box fast food location, part of Disney's Hollywood Studios upcoming Toy Story Land. It's cute, but is this really enough to make me book a trip. No, not on its own. I'm not even sure the Slinky Dog Dash coaster or the Alien Swirling Saucers are enough to do that.
Nor will Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, but that is an entirely different story.
Admittedly, the new Toy Story focused land looks increasingly better than it once did as they keep releasing new slices of concept art, but this is no Cars Land by any stretch of the Imagineer's imagination.
That's part of the problem. In a theme park so desperately in need of capacity, the suits keep approving small, low capacity attractions that won't do much to help. Carnival rides never do, in spite of how pretty they look. This park has always suffered from being under built and often left to fall apart. Bringing in replacement attractions instead of additions doesn't help either. Nor does leaving stage shows that have long seen their prime- and those seem to be what sets this park apart from the others on the property. (Thank God they left Tower of Terror alone!)
There's got to be more coming to this park expansion / revisioning besides carnival rides and places to buy a beer flight, doesn't there?
