^ have to add on here, but I just pre-ordered a pair of the new-to-be Pirates Summer 2018 pair of Transit Steamers.
They both look great, and will be available at the Resort July 6th I have been told, by an eBay seller of these.

HOLY MORE EXPANSION, Batman!

Just posted at http://www.tdrexplorer.com:

Largest Ever Expansion Announced for Tokyo DisneySea Opening in 2022

Won't post any more, but the artists' concepts of the "three new ports" looks gorgeous! And all of this, scheduled to open in "fiscal 2022,"
meaning it could all open as late as 2023, is beside what is already being built and opening in.....2020?

And a new hotel, too!

:b :mickey: :br

This is obviously The Big Announcement that was scheduled for May......but they took some extra planning time for it, lol.
Which makes it perfect when we hopefully get our travel act together, and get over there by Nov.2025. :smile:

Wonder if they will keep Peter Pan in TDL or if it will become something else.

Dang, Guess I need to ride Peter Pan now.

^ Here's from what tdr posted:

"Two attractions:

1. Guests fly over the jungles of Neverland and battle with Captain Hook
2. Guests are immersed in the world of Pixie Hollow"

#1 definitely sounds like the old Peter Pan ride. But maybe done
with the new tech and stuff that they used for Shanghai Disneyland's version!
Which then makes me wonder as well, what they're going to do in place of the old PP ride?

And the Tangled area is supposed to have a "gondola ride," so that will be interesting.

This is a whole new area. Bunch of attractions and a park-facing hotel. Here's a better article on Blooloop detailing the new attractions -

https://blooloop.com/news/tokyo-disneysea-expansion-plans/

I was part of the project team for about a half a year. Obviously my life is still signed away but I am beyond excited to see this finally announced. I hope that I can get there sometime in the next 5-10 years!

The Oriental Land Company has officially announced details about the upcoming Tokyo DisneySea expansion opening at the park in 2022! This 8th port will be themed to lands of fantasy inspired by Frozen, Tangled and Peter Pan and will include four new attractions, shops, dining locations and a new in-park hotel! The licensing agreement for the Disney theme parks and other Walt Disney Company licenses have been extended through 2076 so we've got more Tokyo Disney to look forward to well into the future!

Agreement Reached on Plan for Largest Ever
Tokyo DisneySea Expansion Project, Opening in 2022;
The Walt Disney Company Licenses Extended


URAYASU, CHIBA—Oriental Land Co., Ltd. announced that an agreement has been reached with The Walt Disney Company on plans for developing a new themed port at Tokyo DisneySea®, which will also include a new Disney hotel. With this agreement and upon the completion of the Tokyo DisneySea and Tokyo Disneyland® expansions, the licenses for the Disney theme parks and other key licenses between The Walt Disney Company and Oriental Land, which currently run until 2046, will be extended to 2076.

The expansion at Tokyo DisneySea will create an eighth themed port that is inspired by a magical spring leading to a world of Disney fantasy. The themed port will be comprised of three distinct areas recreating the worlds of the Disney films Frozen, Tangled and Peter Pan, as well as a deluxe hotel with a one-of-a-kind luxury wing that will be the most luxurious accommodations ever at Tokyo Disney Resort®. Also, four new attractions will be developed just for this expansion. Operations are projected to begin in fiscal year 2022*. Oriental Land will invest about 250 billion yen in this project, the largest additional investment to date for existing facilities.

Together with the large-scale enhancement of Tokyo Disneyland, scheduled to start operations in 2020, this new project marks a major step in the evolution of Tokyo Disney Resort into a one-of-a-kind themed resort where Guests will enjoy even more magical experiences.

In the 35 years since the Grand Opening of Tokyo Disneyland, Japan has undergone rapid growth and Oriental Land has consistently offered new experiences that can be shared by Guests of all ages that they can only have at Tokyo Disney Resort.

Tokyo DisneySea Large-Scale Expansion Project

1. Overview of “Tokyo DisneySea Large-Scale Expansion Project”
  • a. Site to be developed: the Guest parking area adjacent to Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo
    DisneySea, which will be relocated so that the Tokyo DisneySea property can expand
    into that space
  • b. Number of facilities: four attractions, three food facilities, one shop, one hotel
    c. Development area: about 140,000 m
    (about 100,000 m for the theme park and hotel)
  • d. Completion of project: in fiscal year 2022 (tentative)
  • e. Investment amount: about 250 billion yen (tentative)

2. Overview of new themed port
Themed to magical springs that lead to a world of Disney fantasy, the new port will consist of three areas inspired by Disney films that are beloved by Guests of all ages—Frozen, Tangled and Peter Pan. By entering the new themed port and exploring its numerous springs, Guests will discover Anna and Elsa’s kingdom of Arendelle; the forest and tower where Rapunzel lives; and Never Land and—the home of Peter Pan, Tinker Bell and the Lost Boys. Guests will be able to experience these wonderful, fantastical worlds as no one has before.

The four attractions and the Disney hotel have been newly developed expressly for this project. This new themed port is certain to enhance the appeal of Tokyo DisneySea, the only Disney Park themed to the myths and legends of the sea.

Notes:
  • The new themed port will be connected to other areas of the Park through a pathway between Arabian
    Coast and Lost River Delta.

3. Overview of the three areas

(1) Area themed to the Disney film Frozen
This area is set in Arendelle after the events in the film when Queen Elsa has embraced her magical power to control snow and ice. She has since opened the castle gates so that Guests can freely visit the Kingdom. Located here will be a heartwarming attraction that tells the story of Elsa and her beloved sister, Anna. Guests will board boats and experience the sisters’ heartfelt journey while enjoying iconic songs from the film and encountering surprising thrills. Also located in this area will be a restaurant set inside Arendelle Castle at the foot of beautiful, snow-capped mountains.

(2) Area themed to the Disney film Tangled
Guests visiting this area will discover Rapunzel’s tower rising above in a charming forest. The area will include an attraction that follows Rapunzel to the lantern festival and a restaurant inspired by the hideout of the humorous band of thugs who appeared in the film. In the attraction, Guests will 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.

(3) Area themed to the Disney film Peter Pan
Home to two attractions and a restaurant, 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. One attraction 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.

A second attraction immerses Guests in the oversized world of Pixie Hollow where Tinker Bell and her fairy friends live and work. The restaurant is inspired by the Lost Boys and their hideout, affording lovely views of Never Land that Guests can enjoy while they dine.

Themed to Disney fantasy, the new Disney hotel will be located inside 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.

A clone of Epcot's boat ride perhaps? Although I'd love to see Tokyo do something with the technology of Shanghai's Pirates ride. Perhaps that will be for Rapunzel's boat ride.

Its is extremely unlikely that this new ride will be a clone of the ride in EPCOT. Not that it couldn't be the same ride system, but to build a clone, when you have the ability to make it better seems unlikely. Also....this is Japan...it will be done better. LOL

Y'all beat me to it and I live here, but yes!! After reading the OLC announcement I was so hyped because I at first assumed 2 attractions would go to Frozen, not Peter Pan!! I don't think the main Neverland ride will be at all like PPF at Disneyland, it will probably be the closest thing to a thrill ride in this new port since the other three attractions will be much tamer boat rides. Frozen will almost definitely be a heavily modified clone of Epcot's with a modern ride system and additional scenes. Tangled is going to be straight up gorgeous!! But wow wow wow this is wonderful news!
