HKDL Update : Toy Story Land Grand Opening !

Toy Story Land had its official Grand Opening in HKDL two days ago. D&M was there and i have for you exclusive pics as well as official pics and also videos.

The opening ceremony was staged at the entrance of the land in front of the 6-meter tall giant Woody and with the RC Racer structure in the background. The opening show began with the green army soldiers.

Then arrived Woody and Jessie...

...Followed by HKDL execs and WDI Imagineers to declare officially open Toy Story Land.

Just wondering if the late 60's Hot Wheels were part of the 50's era Toy Story film toys? Seems out of place?

Probably Dinky or Matchbox toys would be more in keeping, but Hot Wheels sells the Mattel sponsership.
