Alien Swirling Saucers is a spinning ride at Toy Story Land in Disney's Hollywood Studios. First announced at the 2015 D23 Expo, it opened on June 30, 2018, as part of the area's opening.[1]

Alien Swirling Saucers uses the same ride system that powers Disney California Adventure Park's Mater's Junkyard Jamboree and Tokyo Disneyland's The Happy Ride With Baymax.[2] The ride system shares similarities to the classic "Cuddle Up" ride from Philadelphia Toboggan Company and the classic Whip ride from William F. Mangels.[3] It was manufactured by Zamperla.[4] The attraction is themed as a play set that Andy won at Pizza Planet.[5]

In 2018, it was announced that it would be constructed in Walt Disney Studios Park at Disneyland Paris as a part of its 2-billion-dollar expansion. However, more recent concept art has silently cancelled its inclusion in the expansion.[6]
