The opening of Toy Story Land at Disney’s Hollywood Studios this summer has brought delight and excitement to our Guests, but did you know you can also bring elements from this immersive new land into your group’s ballroom event at a Walt Disney World Resort convention hotel? With all the whimsical and inspirational experiences Toy Story Land has to offer, the possibilities are endless for introducing innovative and creative ideas into your meeting or event agenda.
Here are just a few ideas for how you can surprise your attendees by bringing the exciting world of Toy Story Land into your event:
#1: Decorate with Plenty of Toys
Our Disney creative team has rooms brimming with décor for planners to choose from! From giant crayons to alphabet blocks, these toy decorations will make it easy for attendees to imagine they’re inside Andy’s toy chest. Many of these pieces, designed in partnership with the artists at Pixar, are actually unique to Disney—such as this larger-than-life battery, belonging to everyone’s favorite Space Ranger: Buzz Lightyear!
#2: Create a Multisensory Experience with Themed Food & Beverage
Planners can work with Disney’s award-winning culinary team to design custom menus or choose from our specially themed menus to fill your event with delightful fare based on Toy Story Land. Surprise your attendees with sweet treats like these Alien macaroons!
#3: Add a Little Fun to Your Floral Arrangements
Planners can work with Disney’s floral team to create charming floral arrangements as unique centerpieces for each table. Delight your attendees with these playful baskets, overflowing with beautiful flowers and adorable toys. Take inspiration from the vibrant primary color palate of Toy Story Land or customize the centerpieces to your preferences.
#4. Plan a Surprise Character Appearance
Delight your attendees with a visit from their favorite Characters from Pixar Animation Studios’ “Toy Story” films! Whether you’re looking for a sheriff or a Space Ranger, our Pixar Characters will enhance your meeting or event and turn it into something spectacular!
If planners are looking for an energetic open, there is no better icebreaker than Sarge and his Green Army Patrol bursting into your meeting for an interactive boot camp to get attendees moving and on their feet!
Bonus Tip: Take Advantage of Group Tickets
If planning a Toy Story Land-inspired event simply isn’t enough, you can provide your attendees with specially-priced Theme Park tickets, so they can enjoy the new land together at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. By offering attendees the chance to visit Toy Story Land after their meeting or event, planners provide an excellent opportunity for team bonding and networking.
This event concept gives planners the ability to adjust and arrange elements to fit their theme, timeline, and budget to keep attendees engaged and excited. Various elements of food and beverage, décor, and entertainment can be tailored to the group’s preferences. When you host your event at Walt Disney World Resort, your attendees will have a once-in-a-lifetime experience! The possibilities are endless when you #MeetAtDisney.
