The brand new movie Toy Story 4 will be released in Japan on July 12 and to celebrate, Tokyo Disney Resort launched the event Funtime with Toy Story 4, which started on June 14 and will run until September 1. 

In the movie, Forky meets Woody and the gang, who have been Bonnie’s toys for quite some time now. However, Forky does not think of himself as Bonnie’s most precious toy, but rather a used fork that should have been binned a long time ago. As a result, he tries to run away. 

Tokyo Disney Resort is inviting excited Toy Story fans to plunge right into the world of the movie with their immersive event called “Find Forky”. 

To escape from Woody and the gang, Forky has run all the way to Tokyo DisneyLand. Woody and friends need your help to rescue him! When you arrive at Tokyo Disneyland, get your hands on a Find Forky map and use the hints around the park to guide you to his whereabouts. 

When you head to the hint locations, you might discover that Forky was just there a moment ago! Where could he be?

If you use the map hints to find Forky, you will also arrive at messages written by Woody and the gang. When you find these messages, make sure to talk to the Toy Story staff at the park and you will receive an original sticker for your discovery.
