This week, Shanghai Disney Resort welcomed its first official guests to Disney·Pixar Toy Story Land, the first major expansion at the resort since its grand opening in 2016.

Based on the Disney·Pixar film series, Shanghai Disneyland’s seventh themed land is a high-spirited, colorful world where guests feel as if they’ve been shrunk down to the size of their favorite Toy Story toys.

“We’re incredibly proud of the success of this one-of-a-kind, world-class destination, and we are thrilled to give our Chinese guests even more to explore and enjoy at the resort with the addition of a spectacular new land based on Pixar’s beloved Toy Story characters,” said Bob Iger, Chairman and CEO of The Walt Disney Company.
