Disney Announces Toy Story Land for Shanghai Disneyland

It has only been open for a few months, but Disney is wasting no time in expanding Shanghai Disneyland. They have broken ground on what will become Toy Story Land.

Disney is looking to capitalize on the huge popularity in China of its amazingly successful Toy Story movie franchise. According to Disney, the expansion is being announced now, but actually began before the theme park opened in the early summer. Its anticipated open date is sometime in 2018.

Details about the new Toy Story Land are still a bitch sketchy, but we do know it will be a fully themed area with a Toy Story overlay and will include three major attractions and a themed character meet and greet area. It is unclear how similar it will be to the Toy Story Land being built at Disney World’s Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

As always, I’ll be updating this post with any further details as they are released.

I am founder and editor of DisneyNews.us and DisneyEverything.com My passion for all things Disney goes pretty far back but was deepened by two semi-recent developments:1) The birth of my son (who is now 6 years old and can't get enough Disney); and 2) Disney’s purchase of Lucasfilm/Star Wars (did I mention I was a super Star Wars geek?)I recently came to the realization that I spent a significant portion of my day reading articles about Disney and watching it with my son, so it only made sense that I would start sharing some of what I read and see and building a little community around it.
