Toy Story Playland at Disney Studios Paris

While it opened a couple weeks ago, I just finally had time to check out some videos and photos from the new Toy Story Playland at the Disney Studios at the Disneyland Paris Resort.

After a bit of uncomfortable anticipation that the area would contain 'typical' carnival rides that would lack the Disney charm, I'm actually pleasantly surprised. The area does happen to contain three rides that you might find more often at a Six Flags than a Disney Park, but the theming is rather extensive. They even have an Intamin half-pipe coaster that's disguised as an RC Racer. The area is really not anywhere near as bad as many made it out to be.

Disney Studios in Paris really needs more attractions to grow into a nice compliment to the uber-gorgeous Disneyland Paris - but it looks like a high-tech Ratatouille E-Ticket is on the horizon, and that will certainly be a step in the right direction.

For now, check out this video tour of the new land. Be sure to click through to YouTube and watch part 2 as well.
