The "Toys Story" world was first seen in the last year's D23 event and players explored the huge world and fought the Heartless that are spawning from Galaxy Toys. Godhania explained the importance of Keyblade transformations as Sora can unlock new abilities and use it against hordes of enemies.

Godhania stated that the game developers wanted to keep the boss characters from each world as secret. However, EconoTimes speculated that the boss character on Toy Box wears a black cloak and speculated that it could be the Evil Emperor Zurg, Buzz's archnemesis in the "Toy Story" franchise.
