The coaster's pretty much sticking to the art concept right now. Which is great!
The awesome parts will be the themeing all around it, over it, under it. :mickey:

^ It's all looking great. I love how the new Grand Avenue pretty much becomes a Main Entry point into Galaxy's Edge.
And I am totally fascinated with how the Millenium Falcon attraction is looking inside, before it all gets enclosed and themed!

will the Slinky Dog Coaster coaster open before Toy story land opens? Or will they just wait til the whole land finishes

The coaster definitely want open until the land is finished. Construction is still strong at this point.

The Slinky Dog Coaster has me very intrigued. I love all those back-to-back airtime hills!

Anyone know what type of train will be on this ride? I can't imagine it being the Mack mega/launch coaster trains, since Disney is so big on carrying loose articles with you, and those trains are very open and exposed. Can't wait to see all the theming!

The concept art showed very heavily themed Slinky Dog trains.

I also remember seeing Seven Dwarves Mine Train style trains in early concept POVs. It'll be interesting to see what holds up. But either way, this is Disney--the trains will be highly themed.

Well, here's your answer to the train question:

This made my day. I can only image what the reactions of other drivers must have been.

Also, there was this gem in the comments:

Wow, that sure is one big wiener!

^ :airtime: ^ :mickey: ^ :airtimer:

Looks great! Can't wait to see it running.
And the train looks sooo much like the flat ride cars, on the
Slinky Dog tail spinner in Paris and Hong Kong, and soon Shanghai...

Awesome.
