As per a thread located on DisneyInfinityFans.com, a French etailer had temporarily listed several ‘Disney Infinity’ items that had long been suspected, but had not been formally announced.
Via its official Tumblr site, Disney Interactive today announced it will be kicking off a national tour commemorating the release of ‘Disney Infinity.’
The tour will kick off this Sunday, July 7, 2013 at the Downtown Disney District at the Disneyland Resort from 4 pm to 9 pm PT and will then make its way across the country, ending up at New York City’s Times Square (home to both Toys ‘R’ Us and Disney Store flagship stores) on release day, August 18. Each stop along the way promises game demos, surprise guests, photo opportunities, giveaways, contests, entertainment provided by Radio Disney and more.
Whether it was intentional or not, the release of a new ‘Disney Infinity’ featurette titled ‘Creating Disney Infinity: Play Sets’ has officially confirmed our previous reports that ‘Toy Story Space’ does in fact appear to be an upcoming playset for the ‘Disney Infinity’ gaming platform.
The video also features minor clips from ‘Phineas and Ferb’ which we also believed to be an upcoming playset but are unclear if it had ever officially been announced as such (characters such as Phineas and Agent P have often been touted as playable characters in previous promotional videos).
Hey Howdy Hey! Disney Education is calling on children (aged 3-12) from the US to come up with their best original story featuring Sheriff Woody, Buzz Lightyear and the rest of the Toy Story pals and produce it with the Toy Story: Story Theater app ($2.99) for the chance to send their family to this year’s Disney D23 Expo, being held right near the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, CA.

At a launch event held earlier today at Disney’s El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood, California, Disney Interactive Co-President John Pleasants was joined by John Lasseter to announce ‘Disney Infinity,’ a multi-platform experience which will certainly prove to be one of the most ambitious projects to date in the world of video games.
The announcement confirms everything we have reported previously. Using a combination of plastic figures, a ‘Disney Infinity’ reader and more, players will have the ability to allow Pixar and Disney characters to interact with each other directly in a video game, as demonstrated by the screen shot to the left which features Captain Jack Sparrow of Pirates of the Caribbean 5 alongside Bullseye, Mr. Incredible, Mike Wazowski and Sulley.
