Exciting news coming out of Tokyo Disney Resort and Tokyo DisneySea today! As we have previously reported, both the Tokyo Disneyland Park and Tokyo DisneySea were set to undergo extensive expansion projects. Today, we are learning that a deal has been reached to move forward on the Tokyo DisneySea project. In addition, we have received details on which this expansion will entail.
We have learned that three new lands will be included in the expansion at Tokyo DisneySea designed after there popular Disney Movies – “Frozen”, “Tangled”, and “Peter Pan.” A new Disney hotel will also be built right in Tokyo DisneySea! In total, the three new lands will add four new attractions and three new restaurants.
The new “Frozen” Land will be set in Arendelle after the events in the film when Queen Elsa has embraced
her magical power to control snow and ice. Elsa has opened the castle gates and now guests are free to explore the kingdom. Guests visiting the new land will be treated to a new attraction that tells Anna’s story. The ride will allow guests to take a ride on a boat and experience the sisters’ heartfelt journey while enjoying iconic songs from the film and encounter surprising thrills.
A new restaurant will go inside Arendelle Castle at the foot of beautiful, snow-capped mountains.
Rapunzel’s tower rising in a charming forest will be one of the focal points of this new land at Tokyo DisneySea. The area will include an attraction that follows Rapunzel to the lantern festival. The ride will allow guests to board gondolas for a romantic boat tour of Rapunzel’s“best day ever” as she journeys with Flynn to the lantern festival. Countless flickering lanterns illuminate the attraction’s climactic scene while Rapunzel and Flynn sing an
iconic song from the film, building to an unforgettable finale.
A new restaurant inspired by the hideout of the humorous band of thugs who appeared in “Tangled” will also be added.
“Peter Pan” Land
The third new land inspired by “Peter Pan” will allow guests to travel to Never Land. The land will feature two new attractions. The Never Land area will feature landmarks that make that fantastical world so memorable, including verdant mountains, Captain Hook’s pirate ship, and Skull Rock.
The first attraction in the “Peter Pan” Land will fly Guests over the jungles of Never Land into a battle with Captain Hook and his crew of pirates. Guests will join Peter Pan in an adventure to rescue Wendy’s younger brother, John, who has been kidnapped by Captain Hook and his pirates. Guests board boats and follow the Lost Boys down a river. When Tinker Bell sprinkles the boats with pixie dust, Guests find themselves flying through Never Land on an unprecedented adventure that features iconic music and dynamic 3D imagery of the characters from the film.
The second attraction will immerse guests in the oversized world of Pixie Hollow where Tinker Bell and her fairy friends live and work.
The new restaurant will be inspired by the Lost Boys and their hideout, affording lovely views of Never Land that guests can enjoy while they dine.
New Disney Hotel
The new Disney Hotel planned for this massive expansion project will be themed to a Disney fantasy. As mentioned, it will be located directly inside of the Park. The hotel will rise above and around the magical springs that serve as the core of the new themed port’s story. Park-facing rooms will provide beautiful views of the port’s majestic landscape, affording Guests a magical experience that can only be had at this hotel. The Disney hotel will offer 475 deluxe-type and luxury-type guest rooms, with the latter providing the finest accommodations in Tokyo Disney Resort. A merchandise shop that helps share the story of the magical springs will be found on the hotel’s first floor, facing the Park.
This sounds beyond magical! I think it’s time to start planning a visit to the Tokyo Disney Resort and Tokyo DisneySea!
