PHOTOS: Toy Story Hotel Groundbreaking Ceremony Held Today at Tokyo Disney Resort
Tokyo Disney Resort held a groundbreaking ceremony for the Toy Story Hotel opening at the resort in 2021. Based on the extremely successful Toy Story franchise, the approximately 600 room hotel will give guests an opportunity to enjoy a toy-sized world. The guest rooms will resemble the ever-familiar bedroom of Andy, where Woody, Buzz, and their other pals live.
Today, the Oriental Land Company conducted a traditional safety prayer for the construction of the hotel. The ceremony was attended by around 30 individuals including Toshio Kagami, President CEO of the Oriental Land Company, and COO Kyoichiro Kaminishi.
Oriental Land Co., Ltd. provided a background story to the yet-to-be-named Toy Story Hotel in a press release:
“Andy, the little boy who loves his toys – Woody, Buzz Lightyear and the rest – has embarked on the ultimate backyard project: a building to house all his toys. When Andy is called away by his mom, his toys and their helpers take over the “toy” tower and open it as a hotel for all the “honorary” toys of the world.”
