^ Just finished your TR, and it was really great! I agree with a lot of what you commented on,
including the "complaints" although really, when you consider how wonderful the cast members are
there in the parks, and helpful as best they can, not knowing the language isn't too big a drawback.

And Disney was once quoted as saying he always wanted to make his dark rides "busy enough, so
people have to come back and ride it again, so they can see everything else." Or something like that.
So to me, the way the Journey vehicles are designed is pretty cool, when you think how stuff is
sometimes sight-blocked a bit, or in full view the next time. The same thing goes for the 20K ride.
The little subs aren't totally "full view", but it certainly makes finding stuff out there more fun, to me. :smile:

And you got a photo of something new in the parks, something that I've been wanting to get, when
last there....smaller popcorn buckets! I've posted this photo you took from you report, showing the
new holder up beside the usual larger Mickey popcorn holder. The new smaller one can hold the
popcorn box you can get, with less popcorn in it, which I think is perfect with so many flavours to try.

Hopefully, those will still be available when we get over there, in 2018. And thanks for sharing your
great trip report! Very thorough, and great photos to go along with the text.

Up there on top, the smaller rectangular thing - that's the new smaller popcorn (box) holder!
By the way, glad to see that CURRY popcorn is still a fave out there. I enjoyed it, too!

Tokyo Disney Resort® announced that “Frozen Forever” will be presented at Tokyo Disneyland® Park for limited period from January 13 to March 17,
2017. “Frozen Forever,” a new nighttime entertainment offering using projection mapping technology* will be presented as part of the Tokyo Disneyland special event, “Anna and Elsa’s Frozen Fantasy.”

“Frozen Forever” will consist entirely of scenes from the Disney film Frozen. These scenes, projected onto the exterior of Cinderella Castle, bring to life a world of Frozen that Guests can only experience at the Park. The show highlights the themes of the film through scenes showing Anna and Elsa’s childhood, their adventures and the importance of family ties. Guests will also be able to enjoy the film’s memorable songs, including “Let It Go,” “For the First Time in Forever” and “Love is an Open Door.” The show’s finale features dramatic pyrotechnics over Cinderella Castle. This awe-inspiring world of Frozen awaits Guests this winter for a limited period at Tokyo Disneyland.

Show Facts
  • Duration: About 15 minutes
  • Performance: 1-2 Daily
  • Venue: Cinderella Castle (Castle Forecourt)
Notes:
  • Reserved tickets (available by lottery) are required to view this show from the seats in the Central
    Viewing Area. For more details, please see the Tokyo Disney Resort Official Website.
  • “Once Upon a Time,” currently presented at Tokyo Disneyland, will not be presented during the period
    when “Frozen Forever” is presented.
  • Projection mapping produces a three-dimensional effect by projecting images in a way that fits the
    contours of buildings and other structures.

Tokyo Disney Resort® announced the opening of a second Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique in Tokyo Disneyland® Park. Like the one in the Tokyo
Disneyland® Hotel, this new beauty salon in World Bazaar will make dreams come true for children who admire the Disney Princesses.

Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique has been highly popular since opening at the Tokyo Disneyland Hotel in 2008. The new beauty salon in the Park will allow even more children to enjoy this magical experience. In addition, after completing their princess transformation, children can have their pictures taken together with their families at a photo studio that will set up with the new beauty salon.

Note: In autumn 2016, The Disney Gallery and the Disney Drawing Class will close permanently to make way for Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique.

The opening date for Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique will be announced once it has been decided.

That projection show sounds great. I would imagine that in like 3 or 4 years from now each Disney park will have collection of 5 or 6 different projection shows they can use on the castle and rotate throughout the year based on Holiday's, events, new movie releases etc. Kind of surprised EPCOT hasn't introduced some kind of Pre-illuminations projection show in Spaceship Earth yet.

From Screamscape.com ....

2021 or Later - Frozen / Arendelle - In Development - (7/7/16) In an interview with the President of the Oriental Land Company, he reveals some timelines and important details regarding the future expansion of the Tokyo Disney theme parks. In 2021 or later he reconfirmed that Tokyo Disney Sea will be opening a new themed land based on the smash hit film, Frozen. He also mentions that they are looking into expanding into what bits of surrounding land they have available to them to ensure they have enough room to fit in the new expansions, especially for the new Frozen land.

Even if they did nothing to the parks for 20 years, it would still be the best resort in the world!

Disney and More has recently posted an article showing new artwork and model work for
the Fantasyland expansion, and the new Big Hero 6 attraction in Tomorrowand.

http://disneyandmore.blogspot.ca/2016/07/tokyo-disneyland-new-fantasyland-model.html

From that first model, it looks like the entire area involving the facades and pathways, takes
up almost the exact space, the Speedway did. And Big hero 6 is sitting right where the Jets
used to sit.

The whole area. A Minnie's Meet & Greet is to be located at the bottom left corner, there.

What Tokyo Disney looks like when the power goes out: http://kotaku.com/temporary-power-outage-at-tokyo-disneyland-and-disneyse-1784692118

Interesting to see that the complimentary fast-pass now also doesn't include storm-rider.
