If you’ve always wanted to party Disney Parks-style with Buzz Lightyear, Woody, and the rest of the Toy Story crew, then get yourself to Shanghai Disney, because Toy Story Land has just cracked open its toy chest.
Or you could just go to Disneyland Paris or Hong Kong, where Toy Story Land has been in operation for half a decade or so. But we’re here to talk about the fun expansion, which is, of course, one of the things Disney is best at (just look at all the magical Star Wars, Marvel, and other Pixar attractions they’re soon gifting us).
So expect this new Toy Story Land in Shanghai, the successful park’s seventh themed land and first major expansion, to truly go to infinity and beyond. Presumably, that’s what the opening ceremony’s gathered dignitaries – including Bob Iger, Disney chairman and CEO; Chen Qun, vice mayor of Shanghai Municipal People’s Government; and Zong Ming, deputy secretary general of Shanghai Municipal People’s Government – are expecting.
According to Variety, visitors to the new Land in Shanghai will get to enjoy three new attractions – Slinky Dog Spin, Rex’s Racer, and Woody’s Roundup -- as well as giant toys, dining, and shopping a plenty (fuelling the next round of expansion).
Have a gander…
If you like what you see, but don’t necessarily want to hop on a plane for 15 or so hours, then fret not, for all your favorite toys will be coming to life June 30 at Disney's Hollywood Studios within Walt Disney World in Orlando. That’s the same locale as the immimently forthcoming Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge (along with one at Disneyland), so expect to have one great day once both attractions open – actually, better make it a week.
