Thanks! Aquatopia is such a fun ride, I'd love to see them bring it to more parks. Granted, I'd love to see them bring anything and everything at TDR to more parks.

It's so beautiful. Thanks for posting those pics! And just in general for keeping us updated on TDLR!

Aquatopia uses gags and scenery to entertain its riders. The new Luigi's ride does not seem to have any of that according to the art and what stuff has been posted online. Its going to use its sheer number of cars narrowly missing each other as they all dance around.

Doesn't Aquatopia also have it's station in the middle so they can run two sides? On my trips I've only ever been sent to the left side but I've only been during cold months and the line was only 20mins since It was cold (the 3 big indoor rides had 180 min waits though all day). I feel like some-one posted a report ages ago where one side was a dry side and one was a wet side. Well both involve water obviously but one side had the water jets hitting the car instead of missing apparently.

^ It also had a kind of omni-mover loading and unload belt for each side, too.

Luigi's at DCA, sounds (and looks like from what video has been shown) to be a mass

unload and load thing.

My family was there last week and said the the little kids really liked it, and that it was better than what they had before. Sounds like a smart move to me!

Our (probable) 2018 trip to Tokyo Disney is just two years away.

 

But still.... is there any news lately, from the Resort?

 

Photos as well? Anything on the two parks' construction coming up?

 

Much obliged if answered.

 

Actually, it's been about a year since the last posting about Norway,

specifically, at Screamscape.com so I was just wondering....

Anything going on around the soon-to-be Norway/Arendelle site at TDS? ~ TPR 2013 Japan Tour.

The other side of that possible Norway site at TDS.

My guess is that WDI is stretched pretty thin with Shanghai and the other projects on the books right now, so getting things done to TDS standards would be more costly than a typical development cycle.

If this was ever going to be a reality at any Disney park, it'd be Japan. I feel like you could probably have a whole 3rd gate based around Ghibli, although Hayao Miyazaki is way too green to green light it unless you could somehow make it run completely on self-sustaining energy. As much as it's fan art, it's apparently fan art by a guy named John Ramirez who works for Disney both for storyboards and the theme-parks:

Very interesting. Are we assuming that the big Fantasyland redo was scaled back? Arendelle over at DisneySea pushed back?

 

It's okay, I'm fine with all of that if we're getting a Beauty and the Beast Trackless dark ride and a small Big Hero 6 area!!!!

A trackless Beauty and the Beast dark ride would be a big step up over the Tomorrowland Raceway (which I think is the park's weakest attraction).

Wow, a trackless Beauty and the Beast dark ride?!? That would be so sweet in addition to Pooh!

 

The Big Hero 6 concept art looks awesome too.

 

Not the biggest fan of Soarin myself, but its nice to see another major attraction go in

Some serious things have changed from the last time they announced this project. remember, there was going to be a large Alice in Wonderland Area, and they were moving Small World (presumably to where the Big Hero 6 and Beauty and the Beast attractions are located). So, that leaves the fate of Small World up in the air, and that whole area they were going to redevelop.

 

And like Elissa mentioned, what happened to the new port in Disney SEA!? I am very excited for the new additions, but I am very curious to see what will happen to the rest of the things we saw in the original announcement.

The Big Hero 6 attraction looks like it's another version of Mater's Jamboree.

(Oops. Sorry. Didn't see it already mentioned.)

 

And trackless rides are always an awesome thing, when Disney is involved!

 

I'll look forward to seeing the construction of it all, when (I hope) we get over there in 2018.

 

And, one place selling multiple flavours of popcorn???

I just looked at last year's announcement and the Alice in Wonderland and Arendelle projects were for after fiscal year 2017, so this is not confirmation that any previous announcement has changed. However, Screamscape shows Arendelle to be on hold

^ Japan - is - expensive. No matter if it's Disney or Universal. But most of the time,

you do see "the money" with what they come up with, over there. IMhO
