You can help pick Toy Story Land-inspired names for turtles in this year’s Tour de Turtles event at Walt Disney World

in Disney, Entertainment, Theme Parks, Walt Disney World

Later this month, Disney’s Vero Beach Resort will host the 11th annual Tour de Turtles event and this year it will have a very special Toy Story Land-inspired theme.

For this year’s event, Disney’s Animals, Science & Environment Team will join forces with the Sea Turtle Conservancy to celebrate the great migration of two loggerheads and track their journey from nesting on the beach to their foraging grounds.

And to make the event even more exciting, Disney is giving you the chance to vote on a poll for a Toy Story-inspired name for these two turtles to celebrate the recent opening of Toy Story Land at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Walt Disney World. You can vote to name the turtles here.

The poll allows readers to choose one of four Toy Story-inspired names: Jessie, Bo-Peep, Trixie and Mrs. Potato Head (personally, I voted for Mrs. Potato Head).

Disney’s Tour de Turtles event will be held on July 28 at Disney’s Vero Beach Resort.

Toy Story Land was first announced on August 15, 2015 at the D23 Expo and opened to the public on June 30, 2019. The new land features two new attractions, Slinky Dog Dash and Alien Swirling Saucers; a quick-service dining venue, Woody’s Lunch Box; and plenty of opportunities to meet your favorite characters from the “Toy Story” films.

You can take a look at the whole land in the video below, and be sure to take a more in-depth look at all the details of Toy Story Land with all of Inside The Magic’s previous Toy Story Land coverage.


Toy Story Land is now open in Disney’s Hollywood Studios theme park at Walt Disney World Resort. For tickets to Walt Disney World and other Orlando-area attractions, visit The Official Ticket Center.
