New Parachute Drop in the Toy Story Playland, The Studios
:worship:The Toy Soldiers’ Parachute Drop in the Toy Story Playland (at the Walt Disney Studios) the backdrop has been completely redone. Instead of the backdrop having a fully ”hand painted” look now a new CGI look has been put in place at least for parts of the backdrop (in particular the largest toy soldier to the left of the parachute for the guests).
The new design with the border around the backdrop is set to recreate the design of a toy packaging from which Andy could have cut out the backdrop. The large three dimensional parachute certainly is back as well – and also received some plussing: some extra lighting stripes were added under it to illuminate guests posing under the parachute.
The upgrade of the photo set are not the only changes to the Toy Soldiers Parachute Drop area. In addition the floor under the actual ride has been redone because of it becoming slippery when wet.
