Toy Story Playland, the new section of Walt Disney Studios Park, was opened to the public yesterday, featuring three new attractions in a detailed themed environment.
The all-new area, opened to coincide with the resorts ‘New Generation Festival’, is reported to have cost in the region of €70 million and is intended to make guests feel as though they have been shrunk down and placed in a garden with characters from the hit movie series.
The area plays host to three new attractions, a half pipe coaster themed around RC Racer, a spinning ride based on Slinky-Dog and a parachute drop featuring the Green Army Men.
One section of the new land features an archway leading to an area themed around the hit Pixar movie Ratatouille, including benches featuring the movies main character Remy.
There has long been speculation Disney are considering an attraction based around the movie and the latest additions make the attraction look a more likely prospect.
Before the opening of Toy Story Playland a sculpture of Ratatouille character Gusteau on an archway leading to the potential attraction site was covered over, an action taken in order to ensure focus was totally on TSP rather than the forthcoming new addition, Theme Park Daily understands.
Reports have suggested the potential Ratatouille attraction could feature a trackless ride system and cost in the region of $150 million.
