Well, apparently the "back story" of all of this, rests with a Magic Springs suddenly opening up out of the ground, turning into a waterway, which fills various other waterways-to-be, etc. I thought it might be a runoff river from the main waterway around TDS. It still might. And the public entry/exit pathway of this, appears to only be between Raging Spirits and the Magic Carpets attraction. And for those who stay at the new hotel, too.
Plans can change of course, but that's the best connect I can give you, for now. It could have been called DisneyWaters, right?
P.S. Anybody notice, like I did, that this is a rather big number of "boat rides" opening, all at once? Just curious about this, and each ride's use.
Honestly when you look into it Arabian Coast is 99% Agrahbah from Aladdin which isn't exactly a coastal city, and the only ride in that land that fits the sea theme is Sindbad. I like the backstory they've provided, it already makes far more sense than Toyville Trolley Park in American Waterfront! And with Neverland the sea is very prominent (y'know all dem pirates and stuff), maybe less with Frozen/Tangled but we're getting 3 BOAT RIDES. TDR doesn't play around with boat rides they got the best Splash Mountain, the best Small World, Pirates with all the original scenes (yes they still wants the redhead and chase the women), and SINDBAD THE GOAT. DisneySea + boat rides is a big deal!!!! Also DisneySea ironically needs a flume/shute the choots and Frozen could fill that void!
TOP PARKS: Tokyo DisneySea, Knoebels, Disneyland, Holiday World, PortAventura, Busch Gardens Williamsburg TOP COASTERS: Phantom's Revenge, Phoenix, The Voyage, El Toro, T-Express, X2 TOP DARK RIDES: Journey To The Center of the Earth (TDS), Indiana Jones Adventure (DL), Splash Mountain (TDL), Pirates of the Caribbean (DL), Tower of Terror (WDW), Sindbad's Storybook Voyage (TDS), Spider-Man (IOA), Haunted Mansion (DL & Knoebels)
You guys....the Pan Boat ride will likely NOT be a boat ride. Though, you're in a Boat Gondola, it's flying. It basically sounds like a different/updated version of the current ride at the park. So, it's really only two boat rides. And, I'd guess Frozen will be the thrilling one, and Tangled will be the Gentle one.
The Peter Pan one is interesting because of the line "3D imagery". Sets + screens? Their take on Universal's screen rides? Pixie Hollow sounds like a walk thought / meet and greet. Frozen is interesting, maybe the thrill aspect of it is more in line with Splash Mt. than say POTC? One can hope.
And there is no doubt it will be physically stunning. That hotel though, pretty amazing exterior. Next level design there.
It would be very cool, if Disney could re-figure out (and refine) the tech below, so that the Peter Pan boats would appear to be floating down a river, and then magically rising up above, and "into the sky" etc. Possible I suppose. A lot of double track work, definitely. But no above-the-boat suspension rail, either.
Imagine what the morning rush at TDS will look like once this new port is open. It's going to be avery long sprint from the entrance gate. The guests coming in from the new hotel will probably be able to get several rides in before the regular guests start making their way into the very back of the park.
^ And also everybody running to Soarin' when it opens, leaves some interesting first-attractions possibilities, i.e ToT, Mania, Big Band Beat. Could drop a bit. Also make heading to the original back attractions and those in Mysterious island a bit easier to get on, and get FastPasses, etc.
Myself and our FanGurls on our First Ever Visit to TDS ~ TPR 2007 Japan Tour.
And this is Mike in the middle of..... Our Gurls. Now, where did Peter's photo with them, go to? Hmmm.

Soarin' lines are probably going to be a nightmare when it opens. Remember when Toy Story Mania first opened at TDS?
^ I also realized, with all the new stuff eventually opening, the massive crowds will head to the right side of each - park!
Up through Tomorrowland and just a bit before Toontown to get to Beauty and Beast Land, and the new Big Hero 6 attraction, and a brand new actual (not a cart)... Popcorn Shop (!) in TDL.
And with TDS, it's up the right side of the Harbor anyway for Soarin'. But beyond that, it's around and under the archway, over to Arabian Coast, then to the Flying Carpets, and there's Magic Springs. (I'm calling it that, for now).
...With many popcorn flavours (I hope) and souvenir buckets available!
Tokyo Disneyland’s Disney Natsu Matsuri is inspired by Japan’s Summer Festival celebrations and is a great way to witness Japenese culture with a Disney twist.
At the center of the event is Sansui! Summer Beat, a colorful dance party featuring high tempo music, choreography, and Disney characters spraying water into the crowd. “Sansui” means “sparkling sun and water” and the show is true to its name, if you’re close to the action, you will get wet!
Sansui! Summer Beat features 100 performers in traditional Japanese dress. Including Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Pluto, Donald Duck, Daisy Duck, Goofy, Max, Chip, Dale, and Clarice.
The show will take place three times per day with five floats traveling along the parade route to the Plaza and Castle Forecourt for the main show.
