Construction Toy Story Land at Shanghai Disneyland marked a major milestone as two of Andy’s favorite toys, Sheriff Woody and Jessie the Yodelling Cowgirl, have joined the land. Standing at the land’s two entrances they will greet guests upon their arrival and welcome them to play in a world of laughter and toys when the new land opens on April 26, 2018/
Woody and Jessie, are built to be 14.5 feet and 11.5 feet tall respectively to allow guests to feel as if they’ve been shrunk down to the size of the Toy Story toys in Andy’s backyard.
Shanghai Disneyland’s Toy Story Land will feature three new attractions, Slinky Dog Spin, Rex’s Racer and Woody’s Round-Up, and a uniquely themed character greeting area. Guests can also extend their experience with fun, immersive shopping and dining opportunities in Al’s Toy Barn and Toy Box Café.
Characters and stories from the Toy Story franchise have strongly resonated with Chinese guests. Shanghai Disney Resort has already been immersing guests in the world of toys since opening, with the only Toy Story-themed hotel in the world, as well as multiple Toy Story-themed attraction, entertainment and merchandise offerings. Guests can join a mission to help save the day on the Buzz Lightyear Planet Rescue attraction, or meet Woody, Buzz, Rex, and the adorable Slinky Dog on the Toy Story float in Mickey’s Storybook Express parade.
Version of Toy Story Land are already open at Hong Kong Disneyland, the Walt Disney Studios Park in Paris. Another version is set to open at Disney’s Hollywood Studios this summer.
