Tokyo Disney Announces Massive Expansion Including “Frozen” Themed Land

TokyoDisney-expansionEarlier this week, Disney revealed details from their partner, The Oriental Land Company, who owns and operates the Tokyo Disney Resort, about the largest expansion in Tokyo Disney Resort’s history. This massive expansion project includes enhancements in both its Disneyland and DisneySea theme parks that will be themed around three of Disney’s most popular animated films.

Oriental Land Company revealed the theme for the eighth port in development at Tokyo DisneySea Park will be Scandinavia with a portion of the area themed to the Disney film “Frozen”. Tentative plans for the area, which are expected to be finalized in 2015, call for multiple new attractions, shops, dining and other facilities.

These new enhancements are part of the resort’s 10-year, 500 billion yen expansion plan that Disney shared last year. As part of the plan, Tokyo Disneyland Park centers on the redevelopment of Fantasyland, which will nearly double the size of the themed land. For Tokyo DisneySea Park, the new eighth themed port will be developed in the expansion site located south of Lost River Delta.

This collaboration has led to the creation of exciting new attractions, entertainment and dining experiences, helping to make Tokyo Disney Resort one of Japan’s most popular tourist destinations.

The new areas are expected to be introduced to the resort in late 2017 or early 2018. Stay tuned for updates on the new magical experiences coming to Tokyo Disney Resort!
