Hi all again... I posted my trip report a few weeks back but while overseas I also filmed my trip and have finally finished editing a movie of Hong Kong and Shanghai Disneyland, including the opening walk in for Shanghai. Hope you all enjoy it!
Hey all, I have a strange request. Is there anyone who is going to Shanghai Disney in the near future? A friend of mine is a Disney Design Group artist, and designed a Snow White doll that is only being released in Shanghai.
If anyone is going to Shanghai Disney soon, please send me a PM.
We’re excited to share that Toy Story Land is coming to 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, which will open in 2018.
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.
As you can tell from the logo, Toy Story Land at Shanghai Disneyland will be both authentically Disney and distinctly Chinese, making it a one-of-a-kind experience for our guests. Everyone’s favorite toys from one of the most popular franchises ever will come to life and play in a fully immersive land with three attractions and a themed character greeting area.
Shanghai Disneyland’s new Toy Story Land will be an experience guests can only have in Mainland China. It will be the perfect setting for all toys – old and new – to gather together for a day that’s more fun than a Barrel of Monkeys!
So… have you planned your trip to our newest Disney resort yet? Let us know in the comments below! And stay tuned for more updates on the Disney Parks Blog.
^ I remember reading back then, that 2 of the rides were to be the U-Coaster and Slinky Dog. But I also read they weren't going to put in the parachute drop for some cultural reason. Has this decision changed now, or is there something new being created and built especially for this TSL?

I never quite understood why it was said it was down to culture. I understand Hong Kong and mainland China are different but considering the amount of Chinese tourists we see at HKDL that have come over, you'd think if there was an issue it would never have been built at HKDL. I mean the green army men were pretty popular at HKDL's meet and greet area and when they marched out of Toy Story Land.
