Theme park fans can expect a soft opening of the park's seventh themed land before that date, according to the park's press release:
Major construction of Disney Toy Story Land is close to completion, and will be followed by an extensive preparation period, which includes ride testing and adjustment and trial operations, in anticipation of the day when guests will officially be welcomed as “honorary toys” in the backyard of Andy, the boy from the Toy Story films.
This will be the third Toy Story Land at Disney theme parks around the world and will include an Intamin RC Racer coaster from the Paris and Hong Kong installations, as well as the Slinky Dog Spin caterpillar ride from those parks. However, Shanghai's Toy Story Land will not include the Parachute Drop ride from those lands, substituting instead Woody's Round-Up — a spinner ride similar to Mater's Junkyard Jamboree at Disney California Adventure.
Disney is building a fourth Toy Story Land at Disney's Hollywood Studios at the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida. Disney has not yet announced an opening date for that land, but it is expected to come after the official opening of the Shanghai installation.
In addition, Shanghai Disneyland today announced a price increase, effective June 6, 2018. (Can you imagine a theme park in the U.S. giving us a six-month notice on a price increase?)
Shanghai Disneyland will raise its base ticket price from 370 RMB to 399 RMB (US$60.27). Peak-day tickets go up from 499 RMB to 575 RMB (US$86.86), and the resort has added a third pricing tier — a Peak Holiday ticket, at 665 RMB (US$100.45). That price will be in effect for tickets on Chinese New Year and China National Day. All tickets to Shanghai Disneyland are date-specific.
