Japan's Tokyo DisneySea Is Opening A New Extension With Frozen, Tangled, & Peter Pan Zones
Tokyo Disneyland recently celebrated their 38th anniversary, but the one that’s been thrust into the spotlight is its sister park, Tokyo DisneySea, for news of its upcoming extension has just broken out. Named Fantasy Springs, the theme park’s 1,506,947 square feet expansion - its largest one yet - will include 3 new fairytale zones themed after fan favourites Frozen, Tangled, and Peter Pan.
Fantasy Springs is slated to be completed in 2023, and we’re pretty sure travel restrictions will be done and dusted by then! While we wait for our next flight to Japan, here’s a first peek into what the extension will entail.
Read on to find out more about Tokyo DisneySea’s 2023 Fantasy Springs expansion!
While Disneyland can be found in multiple cities around the world, DisneySea is exclusive to Tokyo, Japan, which already makes it extra special compared to all the other Disney Parks. And unlike its counterparts, DisneySea never had its own castle - but it looks like that is soon set to change with Fantasy Springs’ princess-related additions!
- Frozen zone at DisneySea -
Also known as “Anna and the Snow Queen” (アナと雪の女王) in Japan, Frozen has been a hit among fans ever since the first movie came out in 2013. It only makes sense that Disney is finally bringing the kingdom of Arendelle to life, and of course, its iconic castle that Elsa and Anna call home can’t be left out.
In the distance, what seems like the icy North Mountain looms - perhaps this would be a setting for an indoor roller coaster?
- Tangled zone at DisneySea -
The big debate between team Tangled versus team Frozen never ends, but it can’t be denied that the adapted story of Rapunzel - known as “Rapunzel at the Top of the Tower” (塔の上のラプンツェル) is arguably one of the best modern Disney Princess films.
At the centre of this real-life version of Corona is the tall spire that is Rapunzel’s tower, complete with the feisty princess peering down from above. Just check out the attention to detail here!
- Peter Pan zone at DisneySea -
Going back to its traditional roots, Disney is also making space for one of its longstanding classics: Peter Pan. Feel like you’re in a whole new dimension as you get whisked off to Neverland, where mysterious lagoons, pirates, and treasures await.
From the mock-ups shown, it seems like the frightful Skull Rock will be part of the set-up, as will The Jolly Roger, Captain Hook’s ship. Wonder if Tinkerbell’s magical Pixie Hollow will be featured too?
Other than the above sneak peeks - and an illustration of a man-made waterfall with flowers and a giant stone carving of Cinderella - nothing else has been announced regarding Tokyo DisneySea Fantasy Spring’s rides and attractions. Given that this extension is going to be massive, we’re sure there’s plenty of excitement in store for all Disney fans, whether young or young at heart.
