Hong Kong Disneyland Opens Toy Story Land

Hong Kong Disneyland marked the completion of its first expansion phase last week with the opening of its latest attraction, Toy Story Land. Tourism officials and Disney executives joined guests and media at the opening ceremony staged in front of a 6-meter tall Woody to kick off the official launch festivities, with appearances by Woody, Jessie and the Toy Soldiers.

 

Inspired by the hugely popular Toy Story trilogy, the brand new themed area is exclusive to Hong Kong within Asia and brings visitors to the oversized world of Andy’s backyard, comprising 3 main rides and 3 interactive experiences. The all-new “Slinky Dog Spin” has guests joining Slinky in a rollicking spin to catch his own tail, while the “RC Racer”, a 27-meter long U-shaped coaster, shoots visitors at speed in Andy’s fastest toy car.

 

The equally-thrilling “Toy Soldier Parachute Drop” affords a bird’s eye view of the park before Sarge’s new recruits fall back to the ground in a controlled-descent and continue earning their stripes at the “Toy Soldier Boot Camp”. Visitors can also look forward to meeting Woody and Jessie at the “Barrel of Fun”, as well as spinning “Cubot’s” blocks to mix and match crazy characters.

 

Subsequent to the opening of Toy Story Land, Hong Kong Disneyland will open Grizzly Gulch, the second themed area of the expansion project, in 2012, followed by Mystic Point in 2013. The whole expansion project will increase the park’s physical footprint by 23 percent and bring the number of overall park attractions, entertainment facilities and shows to more than 100.

 

Admission to Toy Story Land is included in the ticket for Hong Kong Disneyland, with a 1-day pass priced at HKD 399 (USD 51) for adults and HKD 285 (USD 37) for children aged 3 – 11. Multiple entry tickets are available and can be purchased at the main entrance of the park, Hong Kong Disneyland ticketing booths, Hong Kong Disneyland Ticket Express located at the MTR Hong Kong station, Circle K outlets and selected travel agents.
