Woody is accompanied by a letter addressed to Pixar's chief creative officer, John Lasseter, from a Walt Disney World cast member. It reads:

"...we had a young child about 6-year-old by the name of Caleb come into City Hall at Magic Kingdom Park. He brought us his well played with Woody doll. You see, his parents bought him a new one and he wanted his first one to have a great new home and to spend infinity and beyond with Buzz Lightyear. We felt it was appropriate to share him with you..."

And now he has a VERY nice home indeed.

The on-site restaurant serves up four fresh options every day. On this particular day they offered mahimahi steamed in banana leaves, andouille and black-eyed pea soup, ginger carrots, and a grilled Alsatian-style hot dog served on a pretzel roll.

14. The store also sells stuff that's only available at Pixar, like these iconic Luxo balls.

It's called Brooklyn because the studio happens to be located on Park Avenue, so they went with a New York theme. Another building is named Soho.

It's located behind the fireplace and is named the Jimmy Claxton Lounge after the first black athlete to play in an organized baseball league in the 20th century. He played for the Oakland Oaks, whose field was on the same plot of land where the Brooklyn Building now stands.
