Disney breaks ground on Fantasy Springs expansion of Tokyo DisneySea
POSTED 28 May 2019 . BY Andy Knaggs
Disney and The Oriental Land Company have broken ground on – Fantasy Springs – the newest port coming to Tokyo DisneySea.

Featuring distinct areas themed around Disney's Tangled, Frozen and Peter Pan IP, the expansion is the largest in Tokyo Disney Resort's history, with a deluxe hotel also included in the plans.

Set to open in 2022, guests entering Fantasy Springs will discover Anna and Elsa's kingdom of Arendelle in Frozen, the forest and tower where Rapunzel lives in Tangled, and Neverland, the home of Peter Pan, Tinker Bell and the Lost Boys. Within Neverland there will be two attractions: one that flies guests over the jungles of Neverland into a battle with Captain Hook and his crew to rescue Wendy's younger brother John; and a second that immerses guests in an oversized Pixie Hollow, where Tinker Bell and her fairy friends live.

Disney announced a multi-billion dollar expansion of its Tokyo parks in June last year. Expected to open in 2022, the development, which has been budgeted at ¥250bn (US$2.26bn, €1.95bn, £1.7bn). The development will take up 140,000sq m (1.5 million sq ft), with 100,000sq m (1.1 million sq ft) dedicated to the theme park and hotel. With the expansion, the licensing agreement between Disney and the Oriental Land Company – which currently runs until 2046 – has been extended to 2076.
