Earlier today, the Oriental Land Co, Ltd., announced plans for major new attractions and theme park areas that are set to open through the year 2020.
Tokyo Disneyland will expand its Fantasyland to include a new area inspired by “Beauty & The Beast” film, including a themed attraction, shop and restaurant. The yet-to-be-named attraction will allow guests to board “enchanted dishes” that dance in rhythm to the film’s music. Guests will journey into Beast’s Castle just in time to break the spell that will help Belle make Beast human again. The park’s Fantasyland will also get a dedicated indoor theater for future live performances.
Other additions at Disneyland include an attraction inspired by the film “Big Hero 6” for Tomorrowland. In it, the lovable robot Baymax will invite guests to join their own “personal healthcare companion” on a musical whip ride that swings them around and around.
Minnie Mouse will be the star of a new Disney character greeting location planned for the park’s Toontown area. There, guests can walk through Minnie’s design studio and then meet her in person.
Over at Tokyo DisneySea, the park will add Soarin’ to its Mediterranean Harbor area. Similar to the attraction at Epcot and Disney California Adventure park guests will take in sights and scents as they journey over famous landscapes.
