We believe our first-of-its-kind ‘edutainment’ format in a trade event will make learning about Toy Story Land interactive and fun, which is what this exciting new land is all about,” said Aliana Ho, Vice President, Sales and Distribution Marketing.
Dwarfed by giant blades of grass and oversized toys, Guests can race along the half-pipe coaster on RC Racer, join the high flying adventure with the Toy Soldier Parachute Drop or howl with laugher on the rollicking Slinky Dog Spin Demonstrating Disney’s creative flair, the ‘edutainment’ event provides an engaging briefing of the story behind the movie, the main characters, the key attractions including three larger-than-life rides, products and promotional opportunities available in taking Toy Story Land to their customers. Trade partners team up in a fun challenge and compete for the grand prizes. Beloved Toy Story Land characters may also make a presence in some of the cities.
Trade launch events will be held in 16 cities across Asia, including Mumbai, New Delhi, Singapore, Bangkok, Manila, Kuala Lumpur, Wuhan, Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Taipei, Seoul, Busan, Tokyo, Nagoya and Osaka.
