Toy Story Land is putting on the finishing touches for its opening in Orlando but yesterday Shanghai Disney Resort beat them to the punch with the grand opening of a similar (albiet completely different) land there. The completion of the new land first major expansion at the resort since its grand opening in 2016.
The new Disney·Pixar Toy Story Land expansion was announced within only five months after the theme park’s grand opening, signaling the early success of the resort and demonstrating The Walt Disney Company’s confidence in the future of its business in China.
Based on the hugely successful Toy Story films, Shanghai Disneyland’s seventh land is a high-spirited, colorful world where guests will feel as if they’ve been shrunk down to the size of a toy for laughter and fun with family and friends. Woody, Buzz and their pals come to life and play in this fully immersive land, which features three new attractions – Slinky Dog Spin, Rex’s Racer, and Woody’s Roundup – as well as a themed Character greeting area – Meeting Post – and immersive shopping and dining experiences – Al’s Toy Barn and Toy Box Café.
In celebration of 20 years, 2018 marks the “Year of Pixar” at Disney Parks, with reimagined favorites like the Pixar Play Parade at Disneyland Resort, as well as entirely new experiences including Disney·Pixar Toy Story Land at Shanghai Disney Resort, Toy Story Land at Walt Disney World, and Pixar Pier and Pixar Fest at Disneyland Resort – with more surprises to come throughout the year.
