and now it's coming!
TOY STORY LAND
has officially opened on April 26th!
If you've been living under a rock, Toy Story Land has officially become the latest addition to the Happiest Place on Earth: Shanghai Disneyland.
Immerse yourself in the world of Andy's toys, entering a land where you're actually the same size as all of them! From the slinky dog ride, to Woody's Roundup, this latest addition to Disneyland is sure to bring back all those nostalgic memories.
How will you make it through Disneyland?
It's okay, we know how frustrating it can be to get around in any theme park, which is why we've prepared a special survival guide just for you!
Available in both English and Simplified Chinese, this app will literally be your lifesaver in Shanghai Disneyland. You can check out park hours, wait times, AND make Fastpass selections!
We're blessed to be in Shanghai, where you can go (almost) everywhere with the metro. For a mere 5 RMB, you can head over to Disney (the last stop!) with Line 11. Might take a while, but once again, time is money!! And at least you won't get caught up in traffic!
No matter how you get there, walking to the actual theme park takes a solid 15 minutes, depending on your pace. And don't forget about the actual time it takes to go through security (yay, lines!), and entrance gate (yay, even MORE lines!).
During weekends, lines can go as long as 2 hours long in the afternoon for popular rides! Here's a tip: Soaring over the Horizon, TRON Lightcycle Power Run, and the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train tend to have the longest lines.
You'll thank us for this when you either a) get rained on, b) go on a water ride, or c) get shot by a water gun. It's a lot less bulk than bringing a change of clothes!
You may laugh at the others for having one, but you surely won't be when you're burning under the hot sun waiting in line, envious of the little kid ahead of you holding two in his hand.
It may be Disneyland, but Chinese is still the main language since... we're in China. So don't be afraid to practice your Chinese, and impress the rest of your friends & family when you order lunch!
Some people may say this isn't true, but there are no restrictions on bringing food into the park. So that's a pretty big win for those with allergies and dietary restrictions! But hey, the food at the park is pretty good.
Remy's Patisserie The bread and pastries make super Insta-worthy pics and stories.
Stargazer Grill For when you just crave a burger, and nothing else.
Toy Box Cafe Because Disney appreciates the heavenly Hawaiian pizza as much as I do.
Tangled Tree Tavern You can't go wrong with some classic fish and chips.
Royal Banquet Hall Okay, maybe I haven't gone here yet... but it looks amazing!
Got a solid 2 hour gap between now and your next Fastpass? Feel free to exit the park and pop by Disneytown for a nice meal, or to buy a quick souvenir! If you've got a day pass, you can re-enter anytime throughout the day.
We know, it's late and your feet hurt from all that walking. But it's seriously worth it, especially if you love fireworks!
Buy your tickets here NOW!
Follow these points, and you'll be strolling in smoothly... just like Woody!
