Shanghai Disneyland has broken ground for the Toy Story Land expansion at the park.
The new expansion will be completed by 2018.
The groundbreaking ceremony featured Bob Iger, Chairman and CEO of The Walt Disney Company along with chairman of the Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Bob Chapek and Fan Xiping, chariman of Shanghai Shendi Group.
Toy Story Land was planned for Shanghai Disneyland before the theme park opened earlier this year. The Shanghai Disney Resort is the only resort dedicated to the characters and stories from Toy Story – which is a very popular film in mainland China.
Toy Story Land at Shanghai Disneyland is described as “authentically Disney and distinctly Chinese” and will feature three attractions and a meet-and-greet area.
