Here’s one we made earlier: Blue Peter goes to Toy Story Playland

If you’re no longer an avid viewer of 50-year-old BBC children’s television show Blue Peter, this one might have passed you by as well. But late last year, presenter Joel Defries took a trip over to Disneyland Paris to experience first-hand the new Toy Story Playland, its attractions and what went into making them. As well as riding RC Racer and Toy Soldiers Parachute Drop, he met with Tom Fitzgerland, Walt Disney Imagineering Executive Vice President and Senior Creative Executive, and senior show producer Chrissie Allen, who gave some insight into the two year process of designing and building the new land which officially opened on 17th August 2010.

Bestowed with a good few minutes of Imagineering know-how, Joel is then tasked with dreaming up his own blue sky idea and goes out to explore Walt Disney Studios Park for inspiration (!). Before long, he concludes: “There’s no water here! I want to do something with water!” Good thinking, Joel.

    I like how, inside the DLP imagineering offices, they still refer to the place as Euro Disneyland!

  • I happened to find this while flicking through the channels when it first aired, suprisingly this was back in September!

  • Thanks for posting this. I went on Blue Peter myself as a 12 yr old……..
    Shame that my badge does not give me free park entry!
