Toy Story Land: Jessie is Coming Back!

This is the post I’ve been hoping to make for a year and a half now.  As my followers know, I’ve been fighting hard for Jessie’s return since her Walt Disney World meet and greet was cut from Frontierland back in October 2016.  Today, the Disney Parks Blog shared the exciting news that Jessie will be a part of the daily character experiences in Toy Story Land!

Toy Story at Pixar Pier

I know I usually report on Toy Story Land in Walt Disney World, but the news coming out of Disneyland is too good not to share!  Over this past weekend, there was a media preview event at Walt Disney Imagineering, and new concept art was revealed for Pixar Pier – which opens this summer at Disney California Adventure – featuring an overwhelming wealth of Toy Story goodness!

Toy Story Land Construction Update

It’s been quite some time since I’ve shared an update on Toy Story Land’s construction at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Florida, but that’s not because of a lack of progress.  Progress has actually been quite steady, and the constant influx of aerial photos online have been difficult to choose from!  But with the land’s opening less than six months away now, let’s take a look at the current state of things in Walt Disney World…

D23 Expo 2017 Recap: Toy Story 4, Toy Story Land and Beyond!

It’s been nearly five months since the D23 Expo back in July, and I’ve been working on this post here and there since then, trying to collect my thoughts and photos from our experience – there was a lot about the event to process, and I’ve been rather overwhelmed with the thought of summarizing it all.  However, with the recent controversy over John Lasseter’s allegations of misconduct, my recollections are now rather bittersweet.  I’m thankful, though, that we attended the Expo while the magic was still unsullied for us.  And since I refuse to let anyone destroy my love for Pixar or the toys – I will continue to view the studios as the sum of all the talented people who work there, not as one sole person – I’d like to look back, and share what we saw and learned at the Expo in regards to Pixar, and Toy Story specifically.

Yesterday’s breaking news about John Lasseter’s six-month sabbatical from Pixar and Disney Animation Studios, resulting from accusations of “missteps” brought against him, hit me like a ton of bricks, as I’m sure it did many other Pixar fans.  But before anyone starts sharpening their pitchforks to come at me, I’d like to clarify that the intention of this post isn’t to be political, or controversial.  Until more concrete details come out, I respectfully choose to keep my views and opinions to myself.  One thing I do want to address, however, is the insight that this situation has brought to light regarding the delays Toy Story 4 has suffered in production over the past few years.
