$2 Billion Fantasy Springs Area Opens at Tokyo Disney Resort

An enchanting new world of beloved Disney stories has come to life at Tokyo DisneySea. The highly anticipated Fantasy Springs area officially opened its gates to the public on June 6th, welcoming guests to be immersed in the realms of Frozen, Tangled, and Peter Pan.

This $2 billion expansion is the park’s largest since opening in 2001. Spanning 140,000 square meters (over 1.5 million square feet), Fantasy Springs transports visitors to three distinct lands inspired by the popular Disney franchises.

In the Frozen Kingdom, guests can journey through Arendelle and encounter impressive recreations of the Northern Mountain and Arendelle Castle from the hit film. The marquee attraction is “Anna and Elsa’s Frozen Journey,” a boat ride using projection mapping to bring the sisters’ adventures to life as riders sing along to iconic songs.

For Tangled fans, Rapunzel’s Forest allows exploration of the kingdom of Corona. The tower where Rapunzel was imprisoned features along with theTavern Snuggly Duckling serving German-inspired fare. A highlight is the “Rapunzel’s Lantern Festival” gondola cruise reliving her love story.

Peter Pan’s Never Land Adventure uses cutting-edge technology blending ride vehicles with new animations on a quest to rescue John Darling from Captain Hook. The Peter Pan area also includes the family-friendly Pixie Hollow buggy ride through the home of Tinker Bell and her fairy friends.

Uniting the three realms is an overarching storybook aesthetic with whimsical landscaping, waterfalls, and greenery. Eight new restaurants and food carts cater to every craving, from chicken tenders at Lookout Cookout to Norwegian sweets at Oaken’s OK Foods.

The adjacent Tokyo DisneySea Fantasy Springs Hotel provides a truly immersive experience. Guests can stay in the opulent Grand Chateau rooms starting around $2,200 per night or the more affordable Fantasy Chateau accommodations. Both offer private park entry and themed dining.

This mega-expansion is just the start for Tokyo Disney Resort, with a Wreck-It Ralph attraction planned to open by 2026. After years of anticipation, Fantasy Springs has finally become a reality, raising the bar for theme park storytelling and technological innovation. An extraordinary new chapter of Disney magic has begun in Japan.
