A spectacular addition to Tokyo Disney Resort is setting the stage for an astonishing 29 million guests this year! After a colossal $2 billion investment and a construction process tested by the pandemic, The Walt Disney Company proudly revealed the expansive Fantasy Springs at Tokyo DisneySea. Covering an incredible 1.5 million square feet, this enchanting area brings to life the magic of Frozen, Tangled, and Peter Pan. This landmark expansion is a critical piece of Disney’s ambitious 10-year, $60 billion global theme park enhancement plan.

The Fantasy Springs expansion marks Tokyo Disney Resort’s most significant growth since its grand opening over 40 years ago. To celebrate this momentous occasion, Disney CEO Bob Iger and Josh D’Amaro, chair of Disney Experiences, joined the festivities with executives from Oriental Land, Disney’s longstanding Japanese partner. “I am so proud of the richly immersive experiences we’ve created together, and I look forward to the bright future ahead of us here at Tokyo Disney Resort,” Iger expressed.

Fantasy Springs features themed attractions, delightful dining experiences, and unique merchandise shops in each new land. Frozen Kingdom, for example, introduces a stunning snow-covered mountain from Arendelle to the DisneySea skyline. Visitors can embark on “Anna and Elsa’s Frozen Journey,” savor a meal at the Royal Banquet of Arendelle, or enjoy casual dining at Oaken’s OK Foods. Fantasy Springs is not just a visual spectacle but a sensory delight that promises to captivate hearts and minds.

Strategically timed to coincide with a surge in tourism influenced by a favorable yen and heightened international interest in Japanese culture, the expansion is poised to attract even more guests. Japan saw a record 3.08 million visitors in March, an 11.6% increase from the same period in 2019. With tourism on the rise, Disney’s latest addition couldn’t come at a better time. The new Fantasy Springs Hotel, featuring the luxurious Grand Chateau and the more affordable Fantasy Chateau, further enhances the park’s capacity and appeal.

The success of this expansion is projected to increase annual visitor numbers to 29 million, up from 27.5 million last year. To keep the momentum, Disney and Oriental Land are already planning exciting new projects, including the world’s first Wreck-It Ralph attraction, set to open by 2026. The future looks exceptionally bright for Tokyo Disney Resort as it continues to deliver unforgettable experiences.
