Disney World gets ambitious with its new Toy Story Land menu

April 9, 2018, 8:23 AM · The Walt Disney World Resort has revealed the menu for the upcoming Woody's Lunch Box counter service restaurant in the new Toy Story Land at Disney's Hollywood Studios. And based on the line-up of sandwiches and desserts that Disney will be serving here, one might assume that Woody's lunch box is being packed by Jamie Oliver.

Woody's Lunch Box will serve breakfast as well as a lunch and dinner menu. As might be expected with a "lunch box" theme, the focus is on sandwiches, but these aren't the PB&J or bologn- on-white-bread sandwiches many of us found in our lunch boxes as kids.

Breakfast will feature a S'mores French Toast sandwich, stuffed with ganache and marshmallow fluff and topped wit Graham cracker crumbs. Also on the breakfast menu is what looks like western omelette sandwich, with eggs, smoked turkey, Swiss cheese, peppers, and onion on grilled sourdough, plus a breakfast bowl with scrambled eggs, country gravy and potato "barrels" (aka Tater Tots).

Monte Cristo

At lunch, Disney bringing a modified version of a west coast favorite that's been absent at Walt Disney World for years. The Monte Cristo reappears at Woody's Lunch Box, though this will be a grilled version instead of Disneyland's deep-fried one. And the raspberry jam is layered inside the sandwich, too.

Also at lunch and dinner will be a barbecue brisket melt and a smoked turkey on multigrain bread. (That one is not grilled.) Chili and cheese-topped Totchos also will be served, with tomato soup and macaroni salad available as side dishes. The kids' menu includes grilled cheese and turkey sandwiches.

For dessert, the signature item appears to be fancied-up breakfast pastries (aka Pop Tarts). But check out their foodie blog names: "Raspberry Lunch Box Tart garnished with Icing and Dried Fruit" and "Chocolate-Hazelnut Lunch Box Tart garnished with Icing and Caramelized Bacon."

Other options include "Banana Split" yogurt parfaits and soft-serve floats. Drinks will include a "Mystic Portal Punch," Powerade Mountain Berry Blast flavored with lemon-lime and tangerine. Grown-ups get booze, too, with a Lemonade vodka cocktail and beer and hard cider on the menu.

No prices posted yet.

A sandwich shop was absolutely needed after Starring Rolls closed, so this will fill a desperate need. However, let's not fall over ourselves for some grilled cheese. It sounds like a solid menu, but I'll wait until prices and photos of the dishes being served to guests are available.

I'm a huge fan of the renaissance of TOTS happening all over the country. I had some crab tots yesterday at Six Flags America that were pretty darn tasty!

Looks decent but I wish they just brought the Monte Cristo over as is! Nothing beats that deep fried delicousness!

Alcoholic drinks in Andy’s Backyard? What are we supposed to be, Buzz when he’s Mrs. Nesbit in Hannah's room in the first movie? Another moment from the first movie the article reminds me of is when Sid’s Mom yells “Sid, your Pop Tarts are ready”! I’ve seen the first two movies way too many times.

Someone on the culinary team working with Imagineering now loves you for catching that, Randy.

Nice menu, but can only be ordered at an outside counter service restaurant and no indoor seating. People will be sweating while eating.

This looks very promising. Lets hope the self proclaimed and proud picky eater army will not make this menu be dumbed down to generic crap.

Like others, I am cautiously optimistic regarding the menu. Seems great on paper but let's hope they keep it up and don't cave to easier or more bland offerings.

Another website is claiming menu prices between $8.99 - $12.99, typical Disney walkup counter pricing.

Concur with the thread's conventional wisdom. DHS shouldn't pull a Volcano Bay by promising the moon and then chump changing to bland, predictable stuff.

I hope to eat these dishes before they pull them off the menu because they are too expensive to make or guests run away from them because it isn't a hot dog or chicken nuggets.

I normally want something more exciting than a sandwich when I visit Walt Disney World, but...some of these sound absolutely delicious. I just wish the Monte Cristo was (a) deep fried like at the Blue Bayou, and also didn't have the raspberry jam already in the sandwich (I despise the taste of raspberry).

But maybe they can make it without the jam...though asking for alterations to things (like "no tomatoes, please" when I order a burger, then my burger has tomatoes on it) is hit and miss in the resort. Still, this menu is definitely better than I expected.

Also, though I am not on Disney's culinary team (nor am I a current cast member, though I am a former one), I agree that Randy's comment deserves to get him the free meal of his choice when Woody's Lunch Box opens (even if the meal of his choice is at Mama Melrose's Ristorante Italiano or the ABC Commissary). Or, to go back in time...what, ten years in memes? He wins three internets.
