Tokyo DisneySea announced this week that a new area, Fantasy Springs, will launch in 2022. The themed area will add four new attractions to the park based on popular Disney movies -- two will feature “Peter Pan,” while the others will showcase “Frozen” and “Tangled”.
The Fantasy Springs extension will also include three restaurants and a new 475-room hotel that will look out over the theme park in Urayasu, Chiba Prefecture.
“We’d like this to become the only one of its kind in the world,” said Toshio Kagami, CEO of Oriental Land, at a rain-soaked ceremony to mark the announcement.
Robert Iger, visiting Chairman and CEO of Walt Disney Co., said, “We are extremely excited to be adding magic to this world of fantasy and wonder. I can’t wait to see these new magical worlds come to life”.
According to a Japan Times report, approximately ¥250 billion (US$2.3 billion) will be invested in the construction, making Fantasy Springs the costliest expansion project at Tokyo Disney Resort to date.
