PHOTOS: Exterior Construction Seemingly Complete, Interior Work Moving Forward at Toy Story Hotel in Tokyo Disney Resort

With the Toy Story Hotel set to open in April after around two years of construction, we figured it would be nice to pop over to the sleepy corner of the Bayside area of Tokyo Disney Resort and check out the latest progress on this project!


Virtually all exterior work is complete on the new moderate-level hotel.


Even small details like decals in the RC Racer parking garage are visible from a distance (and with a zoom lens).


The smokestack powering both this hotel and the Hilton Tokyo Bay is painted to resemble Andy’s cardboard box western town from the first film and features Dolly, Buttercup, Ducky, and Bunny.


The road is completely paved and painted.


As is the sign, which now sits tied under nets and tarps to keep the reveal a secret until it opens in April.


The entranceway to the hotel features a number of pencils flanking the entrance, as well as very colorful light fixtures.


Due to its assumed popularity, admittance to the hotel will presumably only be those with reservations. In time, this restriction will likely be lifted.

From next door, the outdoor Slinky Dog Park is visible. One of the buildings covering HVAC and other utilities is painted with crayon-esque art of the Green Army Men flying an Evil Emperor Zurg kite.


Plenty of Tinkertoy-inspired sculptures are visible, along with pop-up-style trees and an oversized storybook featuring Slinky. A giant Luxo Jr. ball, an iconic symbol of Pixar, is a part of the park as well.


Lights are on inside the hotel and a number of guest rooms as rooms continue to be furnished and tested.


Toy Friends Square adjacent to the lobby also features many Tinkertoy-inspired structures along with the Barrel of Monkeys and lights designed to look like Christmas lights.


The Lotso Garden Cafe is very visible (and appears to be nearly complete as well) through the backside of the hotel. The restaurant will be a buffet and evidently looks out on Tokyo Bay. Murals featuring Lotso adorn the walls, and there are plenty of visible “trees” as well as a giant rainbow painted on the ceiling.

The Toy Story Hotel opens on April 5, 2022 with reservations beginning February 13. Stay tuned to WDW News Today as we keep you posted on the latest hotel offering at Tokyo Disney Resort.
