The world we know and love from Disney•Pixar’s Toy Story will come to life like never before in a new land at Shanghai Disneyland. Bob Iger, chairman and chief executive officer of The Walt Disney Company, along with Bob Chapek, chairman of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts, and Fan Xiping, chairman of Shanghai Shendi Group, recently celebrated breaking ground on this new expansion.
Just like here in the United States, Toy Story is immensely popular in Mainland China, which makes the new land the perfect first expansion for Shanghai Disneyland. In fact, it’s SO popular, that the expansion began before Shanghai Disneyland opened (Shanghai Disney Resort also features an unbelievable hotel inspired by the series––click here for photos).
Like everything at Shanghai Disneyland, Toy Story Land will be an authentically Disney and distinctly Chinese experience; a truly one-of-a-kind land featuring three attractions and a themed character greeting area. Based on the amazing, innovative attractions we’ve already seen at Disney’s newest theme park, we’re sure Toy Story Land will be an absolutely immersive experience that all Disney fans will love.
