Disneyland Paris Announces 11-Day “Toy Story Play Days” Celebration Dedicated to Toy Story 4

Disneyland Paris will celebrate the upcoming release of Disney and Pixar’s Toy Story 4 with the launch of “Toy Story Play Days,” an 11-day celebration dedicated to Buzz Lightyear, Woody and their friends. From 18 to 28 June 2019, guests can be part of this playful Toy Story adventure!

In Walt Disney Studios Park everyone can come together with family and friends to have fun in a more playful atmosphere than ever before, including a digital scavenger hunt to find Bonnie’s newest toy, Forky, who makes his first appearance in Toy Story 4.

For a limited time, Disneyland Paris guests will be able to catch a special preview of scenes from Toy Story 4 and more exclusive content at Studio Theater.

Guests will have the chance to meet Bo Peep from the Toy Story films when she finds her way to Walt Disney Studios Park. Bo is back and stronger than ever, as revealed in the first teasers of Toy Story 4. “Toy Story Play Days” will also be the perfect occasion for guests to meet Buzz Lightyear, Woody and Jessie.

Exclusive merchandise and tasty treats will offer guests even more reason to celebrate during this limited-time special event.

The playful world of Toy Story is very much present at Disneyland Paris, which features exciting attractions for guests of all ages such as the thrilling RC Racer, the endearing Slinky Dog Zigzag Spin race and the breathtaking Toy Soldiers Parachute Drop at Toy Story Playland. At Discoveryland, Buzz Lightyear Laser Blast takes guests into a legendary laser battle against Emperor Zurg.

Finally, guests can get the full Toy Story experience by staying at Disney’s Hotel Cheyenne and immerse themselves in Woody’s frontier atmosphere. They can also extend the fun with a scavenger hunt reserved for hotel guests.

This unique and fun-filled Toy Story adventure will take place from 18th to 28th June 2019 at Disneyland Paris.

About Toy Story 4:
Woody has always been confident about his place in the world, and that his priority is taking care of his kid, whether that’s Andy or Bonnie. So when Bonnie’s beloved new craft-project-turned-toy, Forky, declares himself as “trash” and not a toy, Woody takes it upon himself to show Forky why he should embrace being a toy. But when Bonnie takes the whole gang on her family’s road trip excursion, Woody ends up on an unexpected detour that includes a reunion with his long-lost friend Bo Peep. After years of being on her own, Bo’s adventurous spirit and life on the road belie her delicate porcelain exterior. As Woody and Bo realize they’re worlds apart when it comes to life as a toy, they soon come to find that’s the least of their worries. Directed by Josh Cooley (“Riley’s First Date?”) and produced by Jonas Rivera (“Inside Out,” “Up”) and Mark Nielsen (associate producer “Inside Out”), Disney and Pixar’s Toy Story 4 ventures into theaters on June 26, 2019.
