Recommended Posts

Off topic but with Black Panther doing so well in theaters, do y'all think it would be possible to see a land based off of Wakanda at the speculated third gate?

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

Posted Images

^ Right now, I think there's too much speculation (i.e. rumors) on whether it's an actual Third Gate for the resort,

or just a continuation of expanding the two already existing parks, beyond what they're already doing.

 

I am hoping that whatever they announce in May, includes news about this future project(s).

"Soarin’ is now a massive covered building that is quite prominent with the Tokyo DisneySea skyline. This attraction

is set to open for Fiscal 2019 (no official date yet)." ~ Photo and quote from www.tdrexplorer.com Thanks!

http://www.tdrexplorer.com has just posted info. about the parade starting April 15 ~ Dreaming Up!.

This includes souvenir merchandise for the parade being offered. Merchandise is available Apr.10.

 

Thanks tdrexplorer!

Here's a PIN; a FILE FOLDER (true!); and a POSTCARD. All available at Grand Emporium in DL.

And anything with a PEGASUS on it in full flight, is fine by me! (o: (*Merch may appear LARGER than it really is - i.e The PIN.)

If anyone is heading to the Tokyo Disney Resort soon, and wants to get their hands (eventually) on

any musical soundtracks /cds that they must have - at most any cost, lol....

 

This shop in the World Bazaar, at least back in 2013 when we were there, had the soundtracks on an entire RACK, for both parks. Which is how I found another copy of (then the original cd of) BIG BAND BEAT, and that's a show in DisneySea! All of the (then) current parade soundtracks available too, I remember.

 

Worth checking out either into the park, or coming out of Disneyland.

 

 

 

P.S. If the store doesn't stock soundtrack CDs anymore, or it's all

moved to a different store, I would love to know, thanks!

Besides cards, they had soundtrack CDs of BOTH PARKS, too! TPR 2013 Japan Tour.

Rumors Just In! Disney Fan sites appear to be posting pre-announcement....uh....announcements!

 

That being... there won't be a Third park in consideration for development and actualizing.

The future is to be filled with expansions to the already existing two parks. Through the 2020s.

 

That's it in a nutshell. More to come in May when they actually announce stuff, woo hoo!

NewsArticle-Future.jpg.fde43eb868612f48022f9740a26e3fa2.jpg

This is not to be, says OLC.

I will still hold out hope. Reason is, it was completely obvious that the parking lot area was NOT going to be a third park. And was ALWAYS going to be expansion/parking for the 2 existing parks. So, this really inst anything new; I'd guess just people realizing what makes the most sense.

^ I agree. But honestly, the thought of the third park, towering above both parks,

and it being an above-the-ground (with elevated walkways) themed park......

 

Long live (the idea of) DisneySKY!

Has anybody heard any May date mentioned,

for the new announcement from TDLR?

I am getting anxious! (o;

 

I also checked for holidays in May, for Japan.

But they've all come and gone, within May's first week.

I just became an Annual Passholder so I'll check to see if that store still carries CDs next weekend. Also Emporio near the entrance of DisneySea carries many CDs including Big Band Beat. You can also find many of these soundtracks at a local Tsutaya found in most major cities

 

And as far as the DisneySky rumors nothing has been announced yet, but I'm leaning towards it being expansion as opposed to a third gate. And as far as a Wakanda land that's probably unlikely because Marvel (and Star Wars) is much less popular here than in the US. Can't see any Marvel stuff or Galaxy's edge going up in a park where star tours rarely has a wait over 20 minutes on super crowded days

 

I just want a Soarin' opening date already!!

^ Thanks for the (where-to-find) CDs info. I remember back in 2013, there was no cds sold in the Emporio, and we were advised to check out their "Post Office" up near the Italian eateries. But no store had most of both parks' cds, at that time, like the House of Greetings Shop did, in the Bazaar TDL.

Hey so I just went to the park yesterday and it must have slipped my mind but there's only 3 CD's in Emporio at the moment, sorry for the misinformation. The "Post Office" would be "Il Postino Stationary", right next to Zambini brothers. I'm attaching some pics (along with Soarin updates because why not)

Emporio's CD selection (just 35th anniversary stuff, but that pillow is AMAZING, a must buy)

When you enter the park head towards the right (away from American Waterfront) and it's along the main walkway

^^ Awesome! Thank you for finding what you found, in regards to the CDs, etc. Much appreciated.

 

Great photos, too! Hope the progress on Soarin' is going well...and fast enough for you, lol.

 

And I agree, that 35th Anny PILLOW - a must have! And what is that larger "card" thing,

beside the two 35th Anniversary CDs? I can't read the print on it.

 

Also, do you have any idea if the Disney Store in Ikspiari would have the two parks CDs, too?

Or even Bon Voyage, for that matter? Great store for everything from both parks, by the way!

That's where I started my (now EPIC) Tomica toy vehicles Tokyo Disney Collection. (They're in

the same photo below, on the right.)

I totally understand, a lot of the buildings in Mediterranean Harbor blend in with each other. It's across from Zambini Brother's pizza if that helps haha it's very easy to miss!!

No prob! I'll be at the resort on Sunday so I can check in the Disney Store and Bon Voyage, I actually haven't gone to those stores yet (I already buy too much inside the parks haha). And yes!! I love your Tomika collection! I also have the Journey ride vehicle and I'm probably gonna pick up the 35th anniversary monorail next. There's actually a secret shop outside the entrance of DisneySea if you walk along the pedestrian route that has a lot of Tomika, no park ticket neccessary

 

The 35th anniversary pillow is SO COMFORTABLE it's incredible haha. And that print is just another 35th anniversary CD. As for Soarin progress I'm patiently waiting! I could hear hammers and drills walking past it, which sounded like construction but knowing DisneySea that could have just been immersive audio theming

It's honestly a dream come true to be an AP, I've already been to the Tokyo resort more times this month than I've gone to the American resorts in my life I'm going again today!

 

And yeah Soarin will definitely take away a lot of the morning crowd from ToT, I'm not sure any attraction can reduce the crowd for Toy Story Mania though

 

And aww you look so happy there! My reaction was the same when I first walked into the park I couldn't stop smiling for hours!!

http://www.tdrexplorer.com just posted a couple of (ongoing) construction photos in DisneySea...

 

Over at Tokyo DisneySea, we have a few things covered up at the moment. The former Sailing Day Buffet (closed March 31, 2018) is covered up and you are able to hear construction happening. It’s not known what is happening with this space yet.

 

I actually enjoy what's going on, here. OLC hasn't announced anything about this (yet), and whatever's going in here

could be part of the New Announcements that are supposed to be done this month. Still, it's nice to actually

not know about something being built/created, for a change, lol. And then, be actually surprised and delighted, when it opens!

Yeah it's hard to get a proper shot without a drone, but the area where Soarin' is going is pretty big and the show building doesn't take up too much of the space. We could honestly be getting a new mini land in that area! And I have no idea what they're doing over at sailing day buffet, but i'm enjoying the mystery of it all!

 

And I actually met TDRExplorer yesterday after fantasmic, it was kinda awkward tho because I acted like a total fanboy haha

 

I still need to pick up more Tomika!!

^ I got the Dumbo vehicle sooner than I expected, because they are bringing out a 35th Birthday version in August, I believe.

I figured once that comes out, then a lot of collectors will want to get "the original". And the price might go up, etc.etc.

 

And....mystery no more! http://www.tdrexplorer.com just posted information on what the Sailing Day Buffet is being turned into!

And how could you tell I'm a Gelatoni fanboy?

^ On three different trips to Tokyo DisneySea (thank you TPR Tours!), and knowing it was there, each visit,

I still didn't time it to do the Sailing Day Buffet. Now, a thing of the past. I know there's

the buffet available at the Crystal Palace in TDL, but still. Won't be the same.

I don't think anybody's gonna get annoyed with any post that has disneysea information when everybody on TPR either loves the place or is dying to learn more about it. And well there weren't supposed to be announcements, it's just that the new fiscal year starts in april here so most people expected somethinf major. I think they're just lazer focused on the 35th anniversary stuff and we might not get any big update til early 2019. That way people dont skip this event and wait for 2020 beastland haha

 

They make way too much money off the 35th anniversary merch, duck butt ice cream included and the dreaming up parade and new world baazar show has been a huge hit

Looks like there wasn't any Major Announcement made last month, about anything in TDRs future,

apart from what we already know that's being created and built. That's okay, everything

being built so far looks awesome, to be sure! And maybe they weren't quite ready for

any new Big Announcements.... just yet.

 

And ^ since you're planning to (possibly) get a TOMICA Dumbo before the 35th Birthday one comes out,

you might also want to get yourself the original Jolly Trolley that was part of TDLR's 34th Birthday! There's

a new one coming out In October, that's for this year's celebrations. Here's link to an eBay listing of it...
