This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

Every day, we draw nearer and nearer to the April 15th grand opening of New Fantasyland at Tokyo Disneyland! We haven’t heard much since a massive information dump in December, until today that is! Courtesy of the Tokyo Disney Resort Blog, we got our first real peek at the ride vehicles for The Happy Ride with Baymax!

Featuring the same ride system as Mater’s Junkyard Jamboree and Alien Swirling Saucers, this fun new attraction is the first attraction based on Disney’s Big Hero 6. Featuring 22 vehicles, the ride will swing Guests around in unexpected directions to take them on a journey to happiness! Up-tempo music and exciting light patterns will help Guests reach a 10 on happiness with Baymax. You’ll surely be satisfied with your care after this attraction!

The Happy Ride with Baymax opens April 15, 2020 along with the rest of New Fantasyland. We’re very excited for this massive addition to Tokyo Disneyland, and we’ll be covering it all right here. So that means stay tuned to WDWNT through April 15th and beyond! If you’d like to read the latest on the new expansion’s construction, you can check out our latest photo report.

Looks really cute. I hope that Baymax moves as the ride moves (maybe a head motion?), though it probably won’t.

This ride system is…. OK. It’s not the greatest, and it doesn’t really move Guests though very quickly (in my experience at Toy Story Land). I don’t understand why they didn’t clone the Teacups as saucers for Toy Story Land. It’s a better ride, faster load, and visually more interesting to watch.


Cloning the Teacups as a ride other than Teacups is probably considered sacrilege. *shrug?*
