Just because 2017 sucked, that doesn’t mean that 2018 has to as well. After all, just look at all the things we have to look forward to in Shanghai: a massive polar theme park, a hotel fit for a supervillain, and a new zone opening up in Shanghai Disneyland.
The resort first announced that it was expanding to infinity and beyond last year. Now, it has revealed some details and concept art, showing what the new Toy Story Land will look like.
Of course, if you’ve been to either the Hong Kong or Paris Disneyland, you aren’t likely to be too blown away. Just like in those two parks, the Toy Story Land will feature a U-shaped RC Racer coaster (to be called Rex’s Racer), which can be pretty fun, but short and plagued by long lines.
Along with Slinky Dog Spin, a family-style carousel ride.
However, there will be no Toy Soldiers Parachute Drop ride in Shanghai. The attraction will instead be replaced by “Woody’s Round-Up,” which promises to be some sort of spinner ride.
“Sheriff Woody has rounded up a herd of ponies, each one pulling a cart, in a ranch set up by Andy. Guests can climb aboard the carts as the ponies start a little square dance swinging their carts to and fro in time to the lively music,” reads the press release.
Right next to Woody’s Round-Up will be an Old West town facade where you can take photos with Woody, Jessie, and Bullseye. Elsewhere, there’s an “Al’s Toy Barn” where you can buy stuff and a “Toy Box Cafe” where you can eat.
Toy Story Land will be the seventh themed land at the Shanghai Disneyland and the first added since its opening. It’s currently under construction and is set to open next summer.
