UPDATE: Concept Art Unveils Sorcerer Mickey Water Feature; New Images from Inside Frozen, Peter Pan, and Tangled Lands at Tokyo DisneySea

The official Tokyo Disney Resort YouTube channel recently uploaded a video offering new looks at progress on the construction of the Fantasy Springs expansion to Tokyo DisneySea. The new construction images, in addition to a new piece of concept art for the Fantasy Springs Hotel and four posters, round out the slew of new information from both Disney and The Oriental Land Company regarding Tokyo DisneySea’s eighth port.

New Fantasy Springs Video

The entire video is a short compilation of previously seen concept art and miniature displays of the land’s three sections. Added are some new in-park looks at the expansion’s more distinctive visual features. You can watch the video here:

Frozen Kingdom

The first land explored in the video is Frozen Kingdom. A previously seen miniature display depicting the land is shown; we see the bridge that guests will cross as they approach Arendelle Castle, a building that will host the Royal Banquet of Arendelle counter-service restaurant. In the background, we see rocky hills and the tall peak of the North Mountain. That mountain will ultimately be adorned with a depiction of Elsa’s Ice Palace as it appears in the “Frozen” films.

The video then offers us a look at the actual peak in its current stage of construction. Visual work on the rock itself appears to be at or nearing completion, though construction is ongoing; scaffolding is present, and while we can see the structure that will soon be Elsa’s Ice Palace, the palace itself is not yet visible.

The marquee attraction at Frozen Kingdom will be Anna and Elsa’s Frozen Journey, a 6.5-minute water ride following the story of the first “Frozen” film. Guests will be able to dine at the aforementioned Royal Banquet of Arendelle, and snacks will be available at Oaken’s OK Foods.

Rapunzel’s Forest

The video then showcases Rapunzel’s Forest. A waterfall is seen cascading from the rocks behind Rapunzel’s tower in the miniature display. In our first look at Rapunzel’s tower during its current stage of construction, we see the greenery that stretches up the tower to Rapunzel’s window. Though where the water will ultimately run from is visible, the waterfall itself, expectedly, is not yet present.

In Rapunzel’s Forest, guests will be able to experience Rapunzel’s “best day ever” on the Rapunzel’s Lantern Festival water ride. They will also be able to dine at The Snuggly Duckling counter-service restaurant.

Peter Pan’s Never Land

Peter Land’s Never Land is the last section detailed in the video. We see a pirate ship guests will be able to explore in the foreground of the previously shown display, and in the background, we see the mountain that will house the land’s main attraction.

Our look inside the park at the current construction offers us a peek at the detailing on the pirate ship and the greenery on the hills. Peter Pan’s Never Land Adventure, a 6-minute 3D ride that will require guests to wear goggles, will take place inside the mountain. Fairy Tinker Bell’s Busy Buggies is Peter Pan’s Never Land’s other ride, and while guests aren’t riding either attraction, they can dine at the Lookout Cookout counter-service restaurant.

New Tokyo DisneySea Fantasy Springs Hotel Concept Art

We’ve seen concept art for the Tokyo DisneySea Fantasy Springs Hotel before, but that art frequently placed the Grand Paradis Lounge (the hotel’s lobby lounge, the large rounded feature with an ovular window in the above art) on the right side of the frame. This new art, included in an official Disney Parks Blog post, changes perspective and places the lounge on the left side of the image, unveiling a new part of the hotel and a better look at some detailing.

The building behind the pavilion-like structure on the right side of the image is Fantasy Chateau, the Tokyo DisneySea Fantasy Springs Hotel’s “deluxe type” offering. In the stone structure beneath the pavilion is the Fantasy Springs Restaurant.

In front of the Grand Paradis Lounge, a water feature inspired by the iconic “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice” section of “Fantasia” is featured. The rock work depicts the brooms brought to life by Mickey Mouse as they pour water into a pool. This feature will be surrounded by flowers.

Fantasy Springs Posters

Four Fantasy Springs posters were also released publicly alongside the new information and images. The poster designs were originally introduced and shown at the D23 Expo in 2022.

All four of the posters serve as advertising material for Fantasy Springs’ attractions. This poster features guests as they ride Fairy Tinker Bell’s Busy Buggies, which transports riders to Pixie Hollow.

This poster advertises Peter Pan’s Never Land Adventure and features Peter leading Wendy, John, Michael, Tinker Bell, and the Lost Boys on an adventure through moonlit clouds.

The poster for Rapunzel’s Lantern Festival showcases a boat approaching Corona Castle as lanterns light the sky. Rapunzel and Flynn Rider are seen in a boat in front of the ride vehicle.

The Anna and Elsa’s Frozen Journey poster aims to emulate a stained glass window and features the two characters touching hands in front of Arendelle Castle.

Work on Fantasy Springs commenced in 2019 following its 2018 announcement. The eighth port at Tokyo DisneySea initially aimed to open in 2022 but was ultimately delayed to 2023, and that date has again been pushed back. The expansion is expected to open completely in Spring 2024.
