Fantasy Springs Opens at Tokyo DisneySea

Tokyo Disney Resort® announced that Fantasy Springs, the eighth themed port at Tokyo DisneySea® Park, celebrated its grand opening on 6 June, welcoming a large number of guests.

Themed to magical springs that lead to a world of Disney fantasy, Fantasy Springs is the only themed port of its kind in the world and consists of three areas inspired by Walt Disney Animation Studios films: Frozen Kingdom (the Frozen-themed area), Rapunzel’s Forest (the Tangled-themed area) and Peter Pan’s Never Land (the Peter Pan-themed area), as well as Tokyo DisneySea Fantasy Springs Hotel.

A ceremony was held before the grand opening where representatives of Oriental Land Co., Ltd.: Toshio Kagami, Representative Director and Chair of the Board of Directors; Yumiko Takano, Representative Director, Chairperson and CEO; and Kenji Yoshida, Representative Director, President and COO — as well as representatives of The Walt Disney Company: Bob A. Iger, Chief Executive Officer, and Josh D’Amaro, Chairman of Disney Experiences, took to the stage to express their gratitude to guests and others who support Tokyo Disney Resort and announced the opening of Fantasy Springs.

The ceremony was also attended by 100 members (50 pairs) of the Tokyo Disney Resort Official Park Fan Club Funderful Disney who had been selected through a lottery to be part of the commemoration. Furthermore, Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse made appearances, as well as beloved Disney Animation characters – Anna and Elsa from Frozen, Rapunzel and Flynn Rider from Tangled, and Peter Pan and Wendy from Peter Pan.

After the ceremony concluded, cast members, who had anticipated this occasion just as eagerly as the guests, waved flags and extended a warm welcome to guests as they entered the new themed port. Within Fantasy Springs, guests were seen enjoying the magical springs featuring Disney character motifs in the rockwork, and immersed in the atmosphere that brings the world of Disney films to life. Others were taking pictures, experiencing attractions, and tasting the new menu items on offer.

Taking approximately five years from the start of construction for this project in May 2019, there has been a total investment amounting 320 billion yen, and spanning an area of approximately 140,000 m2, Fantasy Springs is the largest development of Tokyo DisneySea since its opening in 2001.

The addition of Fantasy Springs brings even more excitement to Tokyo DisneySea, and Tokyo Disney Resort will continue to evolve to bring happiness and enjoyment for our guests.
