Full Tour of the New Toy Story Hotel at Tokyo Disney Resort

We just wrapped up a lovely stay at Tokyo Disney Resort’s brand new Toy Story Hotel. Since, naturally, you might be interested in all of the details, we figured we’d take you on a little tour of the property. Don’t miss our tour of the rooms as well, which look just like Andy’s room from the franchise!

Entrance & Exterior

toy story hotel tour 1803

When guests arrive at the hotel, they will first be greeted by this sign made out of giant toy blocks.

toy story hotel tour 1804

toy story hotel tour 1808

The “hotel guests only” signs around the hotel are made to look like they are hand-written on notebook paper. Currently, only guests with reservations are allowed on property to control crowding.

toy story hotel tour 1810

There are giant coloring pencils instead of columns.

toy story hotel tour 1811

The sidewalk leading to the hotel has colorful bricks, and more stacks of toy blocks can be found.

There is a giant Luxo Ball in front of the hotel, perfect for photo-ops. There are domino benches around it.

toy story hotel tour 1816
toy story hotel tour 1817

Just like in Toy Story Land, giant string lights hang across this area.

toy story hotel tour 1815

The lights and their support poles are seemingly held down by giant thumbtacks.

toy story hotel tour 1819
toy story hotel tour 1825

Here is the hotel itself, which looks like an image of a colorful skyline made of building blocks, with clouds and a sun above it.

toy story hotel tour 1845

toy story hotel tour 1853

To the right, a low wing of the building extends forward to hide HVAC and other facilities. It’s painted blue with crayon-like images of clouds and army men.

toy story hotel tour 1821
toy story hotel tour 1847

To the other side of the main building is a faux cardboard tower extending out of Jessie’s Critter Cottage. This facility hides the smokestack for the power generation plant under the building, which powers this hotel and the Hilton Tokyo Bay next door.

toy story hotel tour 1848
toy story hotel tour 1863
toy story hotel tour 1849

Characters from the “Toy Story” franchise are drawn into the tower.

toy story hotel tour 1864
toy story hotel tour 1850

On the sidewalk near the entrance are the footprints of Buzz and Woody.

toy story hotel tour 1851
toy story hotel tour 1846

In front of the entrance is a large planter. The fencing is made of blocks and giant dominoes.

toy story hotel tour 1844

A sign made of toy blocks, letters, and a ruler reads “Hey, Howdy, Hey.”

toy story hotel tour 1855
toy story hotel tour 1856

The underside of the porte-cochere is themed to the box for the Slinky Dog Park board game, which is how the park outside the hotel’s entrance is themed. It even has an Al’s Toy Barn price sticker on it.

toy story hotel tour 1857
toy story hotel tour 1858

toy story hotel tour 1862

One of the columns at the entrance looks like a moving box covered in drawings and stickers. Eggman Movers was the moving company Andy used in the first “Toy Story” film.

toy story hotel tour 1865

There is more block fencing and short columns resembling the eraser ends of pencils.

toy story hotel tour 2098

At night, all the colors of the exterior are lit up in sharp contrast.

toy story hotel tour 2084

There are lights around the Luxo Ball, so photos can be taken at any time of day.

Slinky Dog Park

toy story hotel tour 1852

Before we go inside, let’s take a swing through Slinky Dog Park, which is in front of the main entrance.

toy story hotel tour 1818

This park, of course, features Slinky, but also Jessie, Buzz, and a few other characters.

toy story hotel tour 1820
toy story hotel tour 1823

Rules for the park are posted in both Japanese and English.

toy story hotel tour 1822

More string lights are hanging across the park.

toy story hotel tour 1824
toy story hotel tour 1826

Here are a few shots of the park from above, so you can see that it is the Slinky Dog Park game also featured at the entrance.

toy story hotel tour 1827

The ground looks like a game board.

toy story hotel tour 1828
toy story hotel tour 1829
toy story hotel tour 1838

There are large faux plastic trees throughout the park.

toy story hotel tour 1839
toy story hotel tour 1830

The Jessie and Buzz figures are made from the same molds as their Toy Story Land counterparts.

toy story hotel tour 1837
toy story hotel tour 1834

There is a giant Slinky Dog book.

toy story hotel tour 1835
toy story hotel tour 1840

Trixie is on a wheeled platform (but doesn’t actually move).

toy story hotel tour 1841
toy story hotel tour 1843

There’s even a giant stack of cards for the board game.

toy story hotel tour 2086

We returned to the park at night when all the colorful string lights were illuminated.

toy story hotel tour 2089

Orb lights on the ground also illuminate the park.

toy story hotel tour 2088
toy story hotel tour 2090

Slinky has a light-up dog house in the park.

toy story hotel tour 2095
toy story hotel tour 2096

Next to the dog house is a Slinky game figure.

toy story hotel tour 2094

Lobby

toy story hotel tour 1866

Now let’s move inside the hotel! Next to the lobby doors are giant book covers. This one is for the “Tin Toy,” one of Pixar’s first short films.

toy story hotel tour 1867

The other one is for “Prehistoric Pals,” featuring Rex and Trixie.

IMG 1962

Inside the hotel, there is theming from floor to ceiling.

toy story hotel tour 1871

The ceiling is a Bo Peep-themed board game.

toy story hotel tour 1872
toy story hotel tour 1873

Some of the columns resemble colored pencils wrapped in rubber bands.

toy story hotel tour 1869

Guests return their room key in a “soda candy” box featuring Jessie, near the door.

toy story hotel tour 1870

The sign for guest services resembles stands and letter pieces from Scrabble, while the desk is made of colorful dominoes.

toy story hotel tour 1884

Behind the desk is a mural of Woody, Jessie, Bullseye, and Stinky Pete playing dominoes, ostensibly from a “Woody’s Roundup” themed dominoes set.

toy story hotel tour 1892

The seating area has green carpet, while the tile floor has giant puzzle pieces.

toy story hotel tour 2229

There are solid-colored armchairs and ottomans.

toy story hotel tour 2230

There is a large blue couch, too.

toy story hotel tour 2232
toy story hotel tour 2234
toy story hotel tour 2233

The tables resemble spools or stacks of buttons.

toy story hotel tour 1880
toy story hotel tour 1920

There’s an area with several ottomans and a TV always playing “Toy Story 3”.

toy story hotel tour 1881

On the ceiling is a race track with five cars themed to “Toy Story” characters (unfortunately, the cars do not move).

toy story hotel tour 2235

Here are the Woody and Bo Peep race cars.

toy story hotel tour 2236

There is a Buzz car.

toy story hotel tour 2237

Then a Rex and Jessie car. It looks like Jessie is in the lead!

toy story hotel tour 1882

Beyond the race track is the front desk, with a sign also made out of Scrabble pieces and giant pencils taped to the ceiling.

toy story hotel tour 1883

Behind the desks is a giant light-up board that reads, “You’ve got a friend in me!” and features Rex. The pixelated nature of the board resembles vintage Lite-Brite toys.

toy story hotel tour 2238

A fidget spinner-shaped table has self-service iPads for guests checking in on the Tokyo Disney Resort App.

toy story hotel tour 1893

Each front desk is made to resemble a different kind of box. This desk, which has a shelf at the front, features Giggle McDimples and a police dog “Pawperclips.”

toy story hotel tour 1894

This desk is a craft kit featuring Dolly.

toy story hotel tour 1896

This desk is a pushpins case featuring Duke Caboom.

toy story hotel tour 1897

And this desk is an eyeglass case featuring the Bookworm.

toy story hotel tour 1889

A hallway on the right side of the lobby leads to the Lotso Garden Cafe (stay tuned for a closer look and our review) and Shop Together, the hotel’s convenience store. The entrance to Toy Friends Square is also on the left.

toy story hotel tour 1890

There are murals on the hallway walls. Here is some artwork of Mr. Pricklepants’ various plays: “The Golden Touch,” “HammPunzel” (also featuring Hamm), and “Hamalot.”

The next mural looks like it is stuck on a corkboard with stickers.

toy story hotel tour 2224

There are Ducky and Bunny and Lenny the Binoculars stickers.

toy story hotel tour 2227

The drawings stuck on the corkboard are of the hotel’s outside areas.

toy story hotel tour 2226

They look like there were scribbled on paper ripped out of a notebook, featuring the toys playing in Slinky Dog Park and the toys constructing the hotel.

toy story hotel tour 2228

There is a hidden Mickey or two hidden in the torn edge of the notebook paper.

toy story hotel tour 2268

Coin press and medallion machines are also in this hallway, past the Lotso Garden Cafe.

Gift Planet

toy story hotel tour 1874

Back near the main entrance of the hotel is Gift Planet.

toy story hotel tour 2239
toy story hotel tour 1875

Gift Planet holds all of the resort’s exclusive merchandise, which you can read more about here.

toy story hotel tour 2241
toy story hotel tour 2242
toy story hotel tour 2245
toy story hotel tour 2249
toy story hotel tour 2250

Building blocks and dominoes line the tops of shelves, with giant sticky notes reading “New Items,” denoting what’s new, which is… everything.

toy story hotel tour 2243
toy story hotel tour 2262
toy story hotel tour 2263

Sticker art of characters like the Little Green Men, Dolly, and Buttercup line the walls.

toy story hotel tour 2246

A giant mirror shaped like the rocket claw machine from Pizza Planet in the first “Toy Story” stands in the middle, allowing guests to try on accessories or ears.

toy story hotel tour 2247
toy story hotel tour 2248

Geoboards make up the ceiling, with even some shape patterns visible.

toy story hotel tour 2252
toy story hotel tour 2253

Meanwhile, the floor is designed to look like a Scrabble board.

toy story hotel tour 2244
toy story hotel tour 2254
toy story hotel tour 2255

The cash register area looks like a Little Green Men box.

toy story hotel tour 2256
toy story hotel tour 2257
toy story hotel tour 2258
toy story hotel tour 2264

Shop Together

toy story hotel tour 2265

Like most things at the Toy Story Hotel, the convenience store is themed outside like a playset. This one is called Shop Together.

toy story hotel tour 2267

We can see a pair of Mickey ears, among other little art designs.

toy story hotel tour 2266

The clock to the right is set at 11:22, representing the November 22, 1995 release of “Toy Story.”

toy story hotel tour 2297

The fare inside is pretty standard for Japanese convenience stores.

Toy Friends Square

toy story hotel tour 1922
toy story hotel tour 1917

Outside the entrance to Toy Friends Square is a statue of Little Green Men standing on building blocks.

toy story hotel tour 1923

Above is Hamm, holding one on a crane.

toy story hotel tour 2222

Below the stairs is a little crayon-scribbled Buzz Lightyear suit with the words “To Playtime and Beyond!”

toy story hotel tour 2223
toy story hotel tour 2221

The stairs declare “Toys only!” but we’re basically honorary toys.

toy story hotel tour 1924

Next to the stairs is a little invitation “pinned” to the wall reading “Join the fun! Where: Toy Friends Square” with Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head.

toy story hotel tour 1936

Heading upstairs, we’re immediately greeted by Woody on the right side, with his arm resting on a Buzz Lightyear: Attack on Zurg card game box. Woody uses the same mold as seen at Toy Story Land.

toy story hotel tour 1937
toy story hotel tour 1915
toy story hotel tour 1938
toy story hotel tour 1914

Next to Woody, guests can take a picture with the card for Evil Emperor Zurg.

toy story hotel tour 1945

On the left, we see Bo Peep in her “Toy Story 4” design. This is the first appearance of a Bo Peep statue.

toy story hotel tour 1944

To her left is her sheep, with the stickers seen on them during the fourth film.

toy story hotel tour 1903
toy story hotel tour 1927

To her right, we see a card for Bullseye from a Woody’s Roundup card game.

toy story hotel tour 1908
toy story hotel tour 1909

Right behind Bo Peep is the container for Giggle McDimples, also from “Toy Story 4”.

toy story hotel tour 1913
toy story hotel tour 1943
toy story hotel tour 1940

Next to Woody is a giant Barrel o’ Monkeys, which are hanging off the Tinkertoy light support. The barrel has red lights lining the interior.

toy story hotel tour 1910
toy story hotel tour 1928

To the left, we see Wheezy in front of a songbook, which just so happens to be opened to “You’ve Got a Friend in Me.” We’ve previously seen Wheezy as an Audio-Animatronic at Toy Story Land, but here he’s just static.

toy story hotel tour 1907
toy story hotel tour 1933
toy story hotel tour 1934

We also see that Wheezy’s songbook is called “Mr. Pricklepants Songs for Singing,” which contains twelve songs.

toy story hotel tour 1925
toy story hotel tour 1932

Rex gets his own card here next to Wheezy, which is number A113, another clever Pixar nod.

toy story hotel tour 1900
toy story hotel tour 1946
toy story hotel tour 1947

Next to Woody is a giant canopy, which provides a nice shade structure. Its roof is made of Tinkertoy and Woody’s Roundup Card Game cards.

IMG 2246

While most of the terrain is faux grass, the very center of the park holds a giant Pixar ball, which is made of a more rubbery surface.

toy story hotel tour 1912
toy story hotel tour 1941
toy story hotel tour 1942

Benches throughout are made of used popsicle sticks, while the berms holding back the planters are anchored by Lincoln Logs.

Woody Elevator Bank

toy story hotel tour 1885
toy story hotel tour 1886
toy story hotel tour 1888

Naturally, with Woody’s Roundup being the origin of Woody himself, his elevator bank is themed to the classic ’50s era in-universe show. The lobby elevator bank features an all-around wallpaper with different critters and Western items. Call buttons are cleverly hidden in stagecoach wheels, and elevator direction indicators are part of the lanterns in the wallpaper.

toy story hotel tour 2270
toy story hotel tour 2271
toy story hotel tour 2280

On the room levels, the elevator banks feature a slightly more subdued look, with a giant mirror themed to Bullseye’s original box (instead of Stinky Pete, surprisingly). Jessie’s hat is also visible.

toy story hotel tour 2272

The bank features a themed carpet of blue with white ovals and stars.

toy story hotel tour 2274
toy story hotel tour 2275
toy story hotel tour 2276
toy story hotel tour 2279
toy story hotel tour 2277

Other fun details adorn the walls, with Stinky Pete making a cameo on the left. The stand for the phone (which is terribly lit) is a Woody’s Roundup AM radio.

toy story hotel tour 2278

The phone also features a Woody card.

Buzz Lightyear Elevator Bank

toy story hotel tour 1876

Buzz’s elevator bank on the other side is, of course, themed to Star Command.

toy story hotel tour 1877
toy story hotel tour 1878
toy story hotel tour 1879

The interior is wrapped with various Star Command iconography on one side and Zurg designs on the other. Call buttons and indicators are still integrated into the design, albeit less smoothly than on Woody’s side.

toy story hotel tour 2286

Upstairs, Buzz gets a design as if you’re inside his spaceship.

toy story hotel tour 2287

On the left is a Pizza Planet box for a “Jetpack Alien.”

toy story hotel tour 2288
toy story hotel tour 2289
toy story hotel tour 2293
toy story hotel tour 2294
toy story hotel tour 2295

Various Star Command and general spaceship decals line the walls.

toy story hotel tour 2290
toy story hotel tour 2291

At the center of the back is Buzz’s AM/FM radio as a stand, reflective of Buzz’s in-universe age being far younger than Woody.

toy story hotel tour 2292

Buzz also gets a themed phone.

Hallways

toy story hotel tour 2296

Every room level features giant puzzle pieces guiding guests in the proper direction.

toy story hotel tour 1949
toy story hotel tour 2281

The wallpapers also contain stylized appearances from “Toy Story” characters, as well as the Star Command icon.

toy story hotel tour 2285
toy story hotel tour 1950
toy story hotel tour 2283

The carpet features the footsteps of Woody, Buzz, and Rex in various gradients that change through the hall.

toy story hotel tour 1951

The colorful carpet contrasts interestingly with the black-and-white wallpaper design.

toy story hotel tour 1952

Even the fire hose and fire extinguisher boxes look like game toys.

Cast Member Costumes

toy story hotel tour 2299

Cast Members appear in a number of different costumes around the resort; we spotted four specifically. First was this standard blue vest with series icons, including Woody’s sheriff badge, the blue sky cloud, and many more. The pattern changes from Cast Member to Cast Member, so be sure to keep an eye out!

toy story hotel tour 2300

Second, we spotted specifically at Gift Planet, which features this seafoam green base with yellow, blue, and red stripes, as well as black shoulders. Some Cast Members also bear a blue apron.

toy story hotel tour 2302

Toy Story Hotel Cast Members get their own special nametag, with this Cast Member accenting with a burst.

toy story hotel tour 2304

At check-in and around the loop, we spotted these Cast Members with red suit jackets and white shirts wearing a Pixar Ball-themed tie.

toy story hotel tour 2308

And finally, some Cast Members here and there were wearing a blue-striped vest with various starburst patterns and Pixar Ball buttons. We found this particular Cast Member at Shop Together.

You can watch our full tour video below as well.

  1. I think the columns in the lobby are supposed to be Pick Up Sticks instead of colored Pencils.
