I'm so glad that we went on the Castle tour last year. I don't think I would have enjoyed it half as much if it had been in english! :)

Thats kind of a bummer that its closing. It seemed to be unique and based on a not so popular movie. Oh well, at least we know whatever they replace it with, it'll be lightyears better than the same "attraction" at DLR.
All clear....

Dispatch, enjoy your ride.

Castle Mystery Tour at Tokyo Disneyland to Close

Postby Mark Rosenzweig » Tue Jan 31, 2006 2:41 pm

January 30th, 2006

URAYASU, CHIBA - The Fantasyland attraction "Cinderella Castle Mystery Tour" will be permanently closed, with its final day of operation on April 5, 2006. The tour began in 1986 as "Tokyo Disneyland Park's" first "walkthrough" attraction, and has been enjoyed by numerous guests in its 20 years of operation. Plans for the use of the space currently occupied by the "Cinderella Castle Mystery Tour" are still in development.

There's the press release. Anyone who has done this attraction- is it a major loss with it closing? Seems it was only offered in Japanese and left many english speaking visitors in *shrug* or *wtf* mode.

Seems the Mickey Mouse Revue may also be on its last legs. It wouldn't surprise me one bit if Mickey's Philharmagic took its place. One would think the whole '80s style retro Fantasyland of Tokyo Disneyland is due for a major facelift, no?


Good to the last drop

Maybe they'll just update the exisiting building with a different story, it may not be a total loss.

Although I hope they don't pull the Alien encounter to Stitch crap.

^ I hope not, I'm still ticked off at WDW for that huge mistake. :angry:

What I am hoping for is that they just give the attraction a upgrade or replace it with a attraction that still has the villians theme.

With the Monster's INC attraction I know it will probably kick the crap out of DCA's version. ;)

Got to love it when hotels they build a parking Structure right off of your balcony, it make for a great view!

Hope it doesnt look like crap.

Other than that, the concept art looks great! But too often concept art is more of a "we wish... if we had the money" type of design, and is often toned down. Assuming they DO go through with it, though, it would be amazing.

Hey, why hasnt Disney made a fricken Las Vegas Hotel yet?! That would be huge!
