When I was a kid, I always loved to see things that were larger-than-life — remember in the 80′s when those giant, person-sized pencils and huge crayons were all the rage, and you just knew that rich people like Lisa Turtle and Webster and that kid from Silver Spoons had them in their houses?
Well, that’s what it’s like to wander through Pixar Place in Disney World these days. You’re shrunk to the size of the Toy Story characters, so everything is built on a massive scale and meticulously detailed. And right in the middle of it all — across the street from Toy Story Midway Mania — is Woody’s Hey Howdy Hey Takeaway!
You can see the Takeaway has taken over the former Studio Cafe…this is where everyone gits thar grub in th’ Ol’ West, pardner!
And below the pennant sign, the Hey Howdy Hey Takeaway Wagon sells its wares. In the morning, grab a pastry, coffee, hot cocoa, or granola bars…
…and once lunchtime hits, this is the place to get popcorn, ice cream treats, chips, or Wheezy’s Breezy Freezy (known to us new folks as “frozen coke”)!
But once you’ve got your snacks, there’s still a lot to see. Take a few minutes (send someone to get a fastpass while you’re at it!) to look around. Doesn’t it look like you’re in Andy’s Kitchen? Check out that giant Cowboy Crunchies box:
And I’m pretty sure that’s Andy’s “Woody’s Roundup” thermos from his school lunchbox…
What else would a hungry cowboy just home from school eat other than a freshly baked cookie from the Woody’s Roundup Cookie Jar?
And these are just a few of the larger-than-life props surrounding the Takeaway. Keep looking around for a bit to see an entire Toy extravaganza going on around you, from tinker toys, to scheming green army men, to jump ropes and monkeys in a barrel.
Settle onto a bench with your popcorn or frozen coke, watch your fellow guests racing to the entrance of Toy Story Midway Mania, and just take in the Imagineering around you. Pretty great place, eh?
