I don't plan to go to Tokyo next year, because of the Olympics... but it seems smart to wait until 2022... but I don't wanna wait that long. I'd prefer to be in Japan literally all the time.

Here's a couple of the photos, showing work in the expanded Fantasyland.

Tokyo DisneySea's new expansion now has a name - Fantasy Springs!

https://english.kyodonews.net/news/2019/05/d17d73689153-new-themed-area-in-tokyo-disneysea-to-be-named-fantasy-springs.html

More info / images at the above link.

An eighth themed area set to open in Tokyo DisneySea in the fiscal year starting April 2022 will be named "Fantasy Springs," operator Oriental Land Co. said Tuesday.

The area will add four attractions to the park based on popular Disney movies -- two of them featuring "Peter Pan" and the others based on "Frozen" and "Tangled."

The extension includes three restaurants and a hotel which looks out over the theme park in Urayasu, east of Tokyo, the operator said.

"We'd like this to become the only one of its kind in the world," Oriental Land Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Toshio Kagami said at a groundbreaking ceremony in a tent at the site, amid heavy rain and strong winds.

Visiting Walt Disney Co. Chairman and CEO Robert Iger said, "We are extremely excited to be adding magic to this world of fantasy and wonder...I can't wait to see these new magical worlds come to life."

Approximately 250 billion yen ($2.3 billion) will be invested in the construction, making Fantasy Springs the most costly expansion project in Tokyo Disney Resort -- also featuring Tokyo Disneyland -- according to the operator.

The size of the planned expansion -- 140,000 square meters -- is the largest in Tokyo DisneySea since it opened in 2001.

I love it all! :lover:

The new entry way into Fantasy Springs looks gorgeous!

And tdrexplorer.com posted a video Disney created, combining all the concept artwork into a lovely little piece, which shows a lot of Disney characters "built in" to the Springs them self. Like the tree at Animal Kingdom.

between Raging Spirits and Flying Carpets, for the Fantasy Springs entrance/exit. IMhO.

Summer's now officially ON, and tdrexplorer.com has posted The Events that are within the All-Encompassing Summer Celebration at both parks. And one of them is for you Duffy Fans in DisneySea...

tdrexplorer.com wrote:From June 6 – August 27, 2019, Tokyo DisneySea hosts Duffy’s Sunny Fun for the first time. There are decorations and new menu items in Cape Cod, but the summer-themed merchandise is definitely the highlight.


And they posted a great photo op spot in TDS, too. Photo from Disney and tdrexplorer.

TDLR is again selling these wonderful "Happy As A Rainbow" t-shirts and souvenirs. Although they don't state it,
you can't help but wonder that these would be perfect for the current Pride Month.

More can be seen at http://www.tdrexplorer.com :mickey:

The shirts also include Daisy and Goofy.

:smile: Chris from http://www.tdrexplorer.com has just posted an awesome article on the current construction going on in Tokyo DisneySea. And this includes a wonderful video 'tour' of all the work done on TDS' Soaring facade, all the details, and what he can see of the queue. Daytime AND night time video! It's just gorgeous to see.

I loved Tokyo DisneySea. My only "regret" is that the crowds were INSANE and literally could only get on a handful of rides. But still loved just walking around and looking at the theming.

The expansion looks fantastic. I wonder why they are not doing a Matterhorn-style ride for Frozen: if there was ever a movie that seemed to set up that kind of ride, the Frozen sleigh ride scene down the mountain seemed to be it. (I have a soft spot for Matterhorn, and particularly love all the riding through the caverns inside the mountain -- there are so many cool things you can do with a coaster darting in and out of those spaces. I was disappointed that Everest comparatively had little to none of that (mostly in the dark). I sure wish they had executed that Swiss Pavillion plan for Epcot).
