Such an amazing resort! I'm so excited to see all the additions and changes in the future. As everyone else mentioned, if there's one resort that will do it right, it's Tokyo Disney Resort!

Because it seems the whole "launch" tunnel is themed with rockwork! It would be a cool place for them to add some sort of projections of the lava monster chasing you, or lava surging up around you or what ever. But its themed, I wonder why they never lit the tunnel!


What's interesting is that they bothered to theme it at all because that section is completely dark and you can't see a thing.

Tokyo Disney Resort® announced that to mark the 15th anniversary of the grand opening of Tokyo DisneySea® Park, a major celebration will be held at the Park from April 15, 2016, through March 17, 2017, entitled “Tokyo DisneySea 15th Anniversary: The Year of Wishes.”

Since Tokyo DisneySea opened on September 4, 2001, as the only Disney Park themed to the sea, millions of Guests have enjoyed the unique atmosphere and adventures offered at the Park. And for this anniversary year, Guests will be able to share a wide variety of new experiences. “Wishes” are people’s dreams for the future and give a feeling of hope and excitement. During the anniversary, Guests will find that their wishes will shine even brighter with the help of their navigators – Mickey Mouse and the Disney friends – as well as all the Tokyo DisneySea Cast Members.

During the event, crystals of various colors symbolizing individual wishes will decorate the Park. The crystals will even sparkle on the Disney characters’ costumes and merchandise, creating an atmosphere of hope and dreams throughout the Park. Kicking off the anniversary event will be “Crystal Wishes Journey,” a brand new show to be presented at Mediterranean Harbor only during the special event period. The Disney characters, each with their own wish, will appear in this show that celebrates the start of the Guests’ journeys of adventure, sparkling with hope.

Also on the first day of the event, a new version of “Big Band Beat,” the popular show presented at the Broadway Music Theatre, will debut with new music, costumes and scenes. This will be the first time that the show has been changed since it opened in July 2006.

In addition, a brand new musical show incorporating projection mapping will premiere at the Hangar Stage in Lost River Delta in mid-2016.

The Tokyo DisneySea Hotel MiraCosta®, where Guests can continue the feeling of adventure, will also be celebrating its 15th anniversary in 2016. Besides the festive decorations around the hotel interior, the hotel will offer special menus at the restaurants and the lounge starting from April 15, 2016.

Earlier this month, plans were unveiled for “Disney’s Halloween,” a seasonal celebration that will take place at Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea from September 8 – November 1.

During this time, families will be able to enjoy halloween fun at the theme parks and resort hotels. At Tokyo Disneyland, the theme of the event will be “Halloween Fair,” and will feature Disney characters in Halloween costumes, a “Happy Halloween Harvest” parade that features floats decorated with seasonal treats, and more.

The celebration will continue over at Tokyo DisneySea, where the focus will be on the Disney villains. The park will be transformed with an eerie atmosphere and a new villains show on Mediterranean Harbor. Other offerings will include “Villains Halloween Party” on the American Waterfront and “Casbah Magical Treat” at the Arabian Coast section of the park.

Been awhile, so I thought I'd ask if anyone has heard about (or seen) anything new at TDLR, and the new projects in both parks?

Today Milial Resort Hotels Co., Ltd. announced the development of a new resort hotel for Tokyo Disneyland, redeveloping the nearby Palm & Fountain Terrace Hotel to be a uniquely themed Disney property!

image.jpg

Milial Resort Hotels Co., Ltd. announced today that a new hotel, the Tokyo Disney Celebration Hotel, will open*1 in June 2016 (tentative) in the Shin-Urayasu area close to Tokyo Disney Resort®. It will be the fourth Disney hotel to operate in Japan. Brighton Corporation Co., Ltd., a 100% subsidiary of Milial Resort Hotels, will redevelop the existing Palm & Fountain Terrace Hotel® for this new hotel that will specialize in accommodations.

Currently the three existing Disney hotels*2 have an annual occupancy rate of over 90%, which indicates the extremely high demand for Tokyo Disney Resort accommodations. Accordingly, the decision was made to develop a new hotel that will allow more Guests to enjoy a stay at a Disney hotel.

The development of the hotel will be based on a new concept that is different from the existing hotels. The designs will celebrate the magic and imagination of Tokyo Disneyland® Park and Tokyo DisneySea® Park in the guest rooms, the lobby and the courtyards. Guests staying in the Tokyo Disney Celebration Hotel will be surrounded by the ambiance of their favorite Disney Park memories, inspiring them to relive moments from their time spent in the Parks, as well as anticipating the experiences awaiting them the next day.

Tokyo Disney Celebration Hotel will offer attractive accommodations while making a casual resort stay possible by simplifying its facilities and services. With the opening of this new hotel, even more Guests will be able to enjoy a wonderful, unforgettable time at Tokyo Disney Resort.

The Disney hotels will continue to evolve as the hotels of choice that are favored by many Guests.

*1 Start date of occupancy, room rate and start date of booking will be announced as soon as determined.
*2 The existing hotels are Disney Ambassador® Hotel, Tokyo DisneySea Hotel MiraCosta® and Tokyo Disneyland® Hotel.

Note: In preparation for the opening of the new hotel, the two buildings of the Palm & Fountain Terrace Hotel will close separately. The Fountain Terrace Hotel will close on February 27, 2016 and the Palm Terrace Hotel will close on June 1, 2016. After the new hotel opens, the management and operations will continue to be handled by Brighton Corporation Co., Ltd.


The Oriental Land Company has also announced a new dinner show coming to the Polynesian Terrace Restaurant in Tokyo Disneyland!

Oriental Land Co., Ltd. announced that a new dinner show, “Mickey’s Rainbow Luau,” will premiere at the Polynesian Terrace Restaurant in Tokyo Disneyland® Park on March 21, 2016. In the new show, Mickey Mouse and his Disney friends honor the heritage of milestone celebrations through the cultural lens of Polynesia, creating a joyful and inspiring setting reminiscent of a tropical island rainbow. Music and dance styles from Hawaii, Tahiti, New Zealand and Samoa take Guests on a cultural expedition, recreating the memories from Mickeys’ many voyages that he has come to cherish and wants to share with everyone in this exciting, new production. Presented in an exotic restaurant with décor that transports Guests to some of their favorite Polynesian vacation destinations, “Mickey’s Rainbow Luau” is sure to create an unforgettable evening for families and friends as they dine on Polynesian-style dishes.

Advance reservations are required for the Polynesian Terrace, a table-service restaurant located in Adventureland.

Polynesian Terrace Restaurant is hosted by Kikkoman Corporation.

Notes:
  • The current dinner show “Mickey & Minnie's Polynesian Paradise” will close permanently on January 4, 2016.

Interesting that they chose a hotel so far away from the park...
