Excitement is building ahead of the opening of Toy Story Playland at Walt Disney Studios, Paris, and you can now read an in-depth preview of the new land on Theme Park Tourist.
Reader Paul Douglas recently visited the Disneyland Paris resort and reported back his impressions of Toy Story Playland (viewed from outside the construction walls) ahead of its public opening on August 17. The preview also contains a number of videos captured by YouTube users during recent employee previews of the new land.

The highly-anticipated Toy Story Playland will open in time to benefit from the continuing buzz around Pixar's Toy Story 3 movie, which began screening to rave reviews around Europe in July. It is designed to give guests the impression of having been "shrunk" down to toy size, with giant-scale toys and other objects strewn around the area.
The attractions in Toy Story Playland are each based on a character from the popular Pixar-created movie series. All of the rides are variations on traditional attractions seen at other parks around the world, including a spinning flat ride (Slinky Dog's Zig Zag Spin), a half-pipe rollercoaster (RC Racer) and a parachute drop tower (Toy Soldiers Parachute Drop).
Theme Park Tourist will be visiting Disneyland Paris later this year and will feature a review of Toy Story Playland on the site shortly afterwards.
