The building boon across Disney theme parks marches on with the announcement today by Oriental Land Co., Ltd. that it would be building a new Toy Story hotel in the Tokyo Disney Resort area.


Guests will be treated to an 11-story, 600-room hotel that is a land of toys. Rooms will be inspired by Andy’s room.

As reported by Oriental Land, the background story on the hotel is:

Andy, the little boy who loves his toys – Woody, Buzz Lightyear and the rest – has embarked on the ultimate backyard project: a building to house all his toys. When Andy is called away by his mom, his toys and their helpers take over the “toy” tower and open it as a hotel for all the “honorary” toys of the world.

The new hotel is scheduled to open in 2021.

Sounds like fun, and one has to wonder that with a Toy Story hotel at Shanghai Disney and now this project coming to Tokyo Disney, how long before a Toy Story hotel rises in Walt Disney World?
