A recent permit filed shows a project being done at Walt Disney World that is simply titled Andy’s Room, and could end up being something from Toy Story going into Tomorrowland at Magic Kingdom.
A permit was just recently filed by the Walt Disney World Resort and it’s for some work to be done in Tomorrowland. The project is titled “Andy’s Room,” and as we all know that is the child that was the focus of the Toy Story franchise.
Per the Orange County Comptroller, the documents show a very large area that is over 15,000 square feet and it appears to be where the old Tomorrowland Arcade once operated. It was in a location next to Space Mountain and was closed months ago.
As reported by the Orlando Sentinel at the beginning of the year, a new law was passed in Florida that states people can’t win more than 75 cents worth of prizes for each game played. This led to Disney closing some arcades or removing a number of games including claw machines and other ticket-spewing machines.
It’s also speculated that Disney could end up making an interactive queue line for the currently in place Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin attraction in Tomorrowland.
Still, the permit plans appear to show an area that is near Space Mountain and is as large as the old Tomorrowland Arcade. Until Disney officially announces anything though, plans are always subject to change.
Currently, Disney has a large number of projects going on at both parks in the United States. It’s going to be a busy few years for the huge company.

If Andy’s Room ends up being another big project at Walt Disney World, it would just add to the long list of new things on the way. For now, it’s just a filed permit for Magic Kingdom and things could change, but this could be interesting in the future.
