Tokyo Disneyland Photos and Video of Enchanted Tales of Beauty and the Beast. Toyko Disneyland has released some behind the scenes photos and video of the new construction and animatronics going into their large-scale development plans. These new plans from the Oriental Land Company show a huge expansion, the largest in the park’s history. With a budget of nearly 75 billion yen (just under $667,125,000.00 dollars) we have been wondering what they could be developing, now we have a better look with these new photos and video from Toyko Disneyland.
The new plans show a French countryside setting with a beautiful castle and village. We can not wait to see this in person!
Meet and greet opportunities with Gaston at his tavern as well as the village setting Belle walks through in the movie are the setting for the new land. As part of the largest addition, there will be a new “Beauty and the Beast” 8-minute long ride experience called Enchanted Tales of Beauty and the Beast. The structure will be just under 100 feet high, where you will take a ride moving through the story of Belle and Beast.
The ride will take you through to “be their guest” and party with all of our beloved friends from the film. I can already imagine the smells coming from the dining hall as the dishes put on a fabulous show.
Tokyo Disneyland will expand its Fantasyland to include a new area inspired by “Beauty & The Beast” film, including a themed attraction, shop and restaurant. The yet-to-be-named attraction will allow guests to board “enchanted dishes” that dance in rhythm to the film’s music. Guests will journey into Beast’s Castle just in time to break the spell that will help Belle make Beast human again. The park’s Fantasyland will also get a dedicated indoor theater for future live performances.
Other additions at Disneyland include an attraction inspired by the film “Big Hero 6” for Tomorrowland. In it, the lovable robot Baymax will invite guests to join their own “personal healthcare companion” on a musical whip ride that swings them around and around.
Minnie Mouse will be the star of a new Disney character greeting location planned for the park’s Toontown area. There, guests can walk through Minnie’s design studio and then meet her in person. Over at Tokyo DisneySea, the park will add Soarin’ to its Mediterranean Harbor area. Similar to the attraction at Epcot and Disney California Adventure park guests will take in sights and scents as they journey over famous landscapes.
