Disneyland is home to a little more magic this week folks, with the annual Disney Infinity Toy Box Summit. Some of Disney Infinity’s best and brightest Toy Box builders have come together ahead of this year;s D23 Expo to dive head-first into the awesome Disney Infinity 3.0: Star Wars in an epic building competition.
Since not everyone has the luxury of attending California, Disney have awesomely decided to stream the whole event via Twitch (which you can check out here). To make you you don’t miss any of the excitement here is the official run-sheet for the event:
