To remind everyone that Toy Story Land is coming to Disney World in June, Disney Parks released a new ad during this year's Oscars. Released in three parts, the commercials show a giant version of the iconic blue, yellow, and red bouncy ball from Andy's room rolling through real-world city streets, a movie backlot (interrupting a dramatic shoot), and a desert landscape. The juxtaposition of the colorful toy against reality underscores the fact that the whimsy and fun of the Toy Story movies won't just be available on the silver screen anymore, but also in real life too. 

Part I features San Francisco as one if its main setting while teasing that "Something big is coming," but not before it roles by a girl on a horse dressed like Woody. It also introduces the hashtag of #FollowTheBall.

Part II marks the appearance of a familiar character, Slinky Dog, voiced by Jim Varney in the first two movies and by Blake Clark in the third movie. Here, Slinky plays with the bouncy ball in the middle of Manhattan. 

By Part III, Slinky and the ball have made their way to Orlando, Florida where Woody is waiting to welcome them at the amusement park.

The park opens June 30 in Disney World's Hollywood Studios in Bay Lake, Florida near Orlando. Rides will include Slinky Dog Dash and Alien Swirling Saucers while patrons can also visit places like Woody's Lunch Box cafe located next to a blown-up Bullseye-themed thermos. Disney Parks tweeted out some new artwork for the place after the third ad aired live during the Oscars.
