The new Tokyo Disneyland main entrance is well on its way to completion and opening this spring! We still don’t have a hard date on when the new section will open, unfortunately. But I’d put it around late March or early April. Fortunately, scaffolding is starting to come down, and the light posts have been installed. So, let’s take a look at what’s new as construction starts to conclude! You can watch a tour video, or keep scrolling for pictures and descriptions!

All over this plaza, the lightposts have been installed. Foliage installation is also underway within the planters. Closest to the center, full-blown trees are in place now.

Basic bricklaying is underway. The white stripes have been placed through parts of the plaza, and crews were working that very moment to begin their work!

And as promised, the entrance structure scaffolding is coming down! The hanging screens and turnstiles aren’t quite here yet, but the overall structures are almost done. It seems like more and more scaffolding comes down every day!

Off to the side, we can also see the rest of the light posts. Pavement installation is next for sure!

The construction area next to the Disney Resort Line station is active once again. This area has been used largely as a staging area, but things are actually moving forward to finish this area up.

A peek over the Resort Line station’s planter reveals that the area is ready for cement. After this will likely be bricklaying!

Work hasn’t quite started directly under the station. Surely it won’t be too long here either.

Around the existing entrance, a small wall has been erected around the large exit gate. I’d probably mark this as part of connecting the cables and other utilities for the two entrance phases.

A wall is also up close to the default Guest Parking exit. I’m not entirely sure what’s going on over here. Perhaps some minor construction work.

Inside the park, more permanent walls are up around the current construction area. This wall goes right up to the World Bazaar structure, with a small walkway open for access to Guest Relations and the storage lockers.

And around the storage lockers, the main entrance restrooms are currently closed. It’s still possible to access the lockers, but the rest of this area is currently under cover for work.

And that’s everything for this week at the Tokyo Disneyland main entrance. It’s go time for the construction, and I can’t wait to see the walls down with a clean, finished entrance. What are your thoughts on the new main entrance? Let us know below or on Twitter!
