Disney Parks Blog just announced that Toy Story Land is coming to Shanghai Disneyland!
What seemed pretty much out of nowhere, 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, which will open in 2018.
Here’s a quote from the blog:
We started the expansion even before opening Shanghai Disneyland in anticipation of its immense popularity in Mainland China. The characters from Toy Story have been well liked in China ever since the release of the first film in the franchise back in 1995, and Shanghai Disney Resort already has the only resort hotel in the world dedicated to the characters and stories from Toy Story. Our guests can’t get enough of Buzz, Woody and all of their pals, which made Toy Story an obvious choice for Shanghai Disneyland’s first expansion.
