^^ Happy to post them! And if you start saving a bit here and there, in no time at all, :mickey:
you'll be there! I needed more time to get there myself, so I am taking 4 more years to save up.
It will be so worth it, when you finally make it there. :smile:
Belle gets her own home! A new meeting place for the Beauty, who eventually loves a Beast.
(I wonder if her father Maurice, will be there too?) Opening in 2020.

Tokyo Disney Resort has released their recent merchandise and food during the current Easter Season there.

And I found this, as it honors the opening of the new Nemo & Friends SeaRider attraction in May.

I love it! :mickey: I luvs me TOMICA Tokyo Disney cars and vehicles.

(TOMICA cars/attraction vehicles are to me now, what CORGI toy cars and vehicles were to me,
as a kid. And I still have that lovely VALHALLA Double Decker Bus ~ a Corgi, given to us on the
"official" first TPR Tour from BPB, through the UK in 2006 ~ around here.....somewhere.)
It's a Disney Resort Cruise Line Bus! Nemo-ed!

http://www.tdrexplorer.com is reporting, that soft openings have started with the new Nemo & Friends SeaRider attraction in TDS.

It officially opens on May 12, but they advise, "if you see a lot of cast members milling about, by the attraction,
chances are good that a soft opening might happen, if you stick close by." They waited about 10-15 minutes
and were rewarded with a first-ride in the attraction.

Opening May 12th, in Tokyo Disney Sea.

Soft openings have indeed begun, and I just so happened to be there when they had the ride fully open to the public:

Advertised two hours, but fortunately ended up being just over one.

Even more extended queues waiting to be used. With Golden Week and the grand opening, that extended area should see plenty of traffic for a while!

Every so often, a small stream of air bubbles would appear in the harbor and travel out to "sea", a nice little touch hinting at the ride inside. Best photo I could get of it.

Obligatory sign shot.

Just before heading in. Since it's still technically in soft opening, they did not allow any photos past this point. Personal review to follow...

Okay, my personal thoughts:
Like Sinbad on the other end of the park, this was a family friendly revamp done right. People were absolutely loving it, and the end of the ride brought cheers and applause from almost everyone I rode with. It's right up Ride and Go Seek's alley in terms of tone and style, and a good fit for rounding out DisneySea's family friendly offerings. If Disney wanted to give this new life, they definitely succeeded.

I think I have to start checking CHURROS out, when I'm next at Tokyo Disney Resort...

~ Photo from http://www.tdrexplorer.com ~

And to answer to:
peptoabysmal wrote:I hope something like this will come to Disneyland Paris eventually.

I doubt anything like this will come DLPR. The one big area that they still DO have, is the section of land in
Adventureland, roughly between the Indy coaster, and Pirates of. There are rumors of maybe an actual
NEW Jungle Cruise (!), or maybe another Indy/Adventures dark ride instead.
But that's the area I'm hoping they're considering.

In my humble opinion. :mickey:
Orange churros! (o: Photo from tdrexplorer.com, thanks!
