This change started on March 18, 2021. Tokyo Disney, which is owned by Oriental Land Co., Ltd, is the first of the Disney parks to make a change to the welcome greeting. The reason for the change is “Continuously for all guests. To make you feel comfortable in the park,” according to a spokeswoman for Oriental Land.

So far, only the welcome greeting has changed, but the wording in attractions and other facilities will also be changing.
