The Oriental Land Company announced today that Fantasy Springs, the massive new eighth port at Tokyo DisneySea, will officially open on Thursday, June 6, 2024. They had previously given a spring 2024 opening timeline for the heavily anticipated new land featuring Frozen, Peter Pan, and Tangled attractions, as well as a new resort hotel.
Tokyo Disney Resort also announced that in order to visit Fantasy Springs and experience its attractions, guests will need to either obtain a Standby Pass or purchase Disney Premier Access.
Standby Pass is available on the Tokyo Disney Resort App, and guests can obtain a Standby Pass free of charge after entering the Park. Guests will be able to experience any of the four attractions at Fantasy Springs with a Standby Pass. Once guests obtain a Standby Pass, they will be able to enter Fantasy Springs to explore the new area and experience the selected attraction at a designated time.
Disney Premier Access is available for a fee, and guests can purchase Disney Premier Access using the Tokyo Disney Resort App after entering the Park. Guests will be able to experience three attractions at Fantasy Springs with Disney Premier Access. With Disney Premier Access for an attraction at Fantasy Springs, guests will be able to enter Fantasy Springs at a specified time to explore the new area and experience the selected attraction with a reduced wait time, offering convenience and added flexibility for those who wish to maximize their visit to this new area.
Disney Premier Access will be sold for Anna and Elsa’s Frozen Journey, Rapunzel’s Lantern Festival, and Peter Pan’s Never Land Adventure. As previously stated, all 4 attractions, including Fairy Tinker Bell’s Busy Buggies, will be available on Standby Pass, but the latter will not offer the DPA service for guests to buy.
Frozen Kingdom includes both Arendelle and the North Mountain in the distance. Set between the first and second films, when Queen Elsa has embraced her magical power to control snow and ice. She has since opened the castle gates so guests can freely visit the Kingdom. Located here will be a heartwarming attraction that tells the story of Elsa and her beloved sister, Anna. Guests will board boats and experience the sisters’ heartfelt journey while enjoying iconic songs from the film and encountering surprising thrills. Also located in this area will be a restaurant set inside Arendelle Castle at the foot of beautiful, snow-capped mountains.
Rapunzel’s Forest also features a boat ride themed to the film. The area will include an attraction that follows Rapunzel to the lantern festival and a restaurant inspired by the hideout of the humorous band of thugs who appeared in the film. In the attraction, guests will board gondolas for a romantic boat tour of Rapunzel’s “best day ever” as she journeys with Flynn to the lantern festival. Countless flickering lanterns illuminate the attraction’s climactic scene while Rapunzel and Flynn sing an iconic song from the film, building to an unforgettable finale. There also appears to be a replica of The Snuggly Duckling tavern.
Peter Pan’s Neverland
Finally, Peter Pan’s Neverland will be home to a massive E-Ticket experience as well as a Pixie Hollow-themed attraction. Visible are the mountains of Neverland, Captain Hook’s ship, and Skull Rock. It’s likely that the Peter Pan E-Ticket attraction will be inside these mountains and will fly Guests over the jungles of Neverland into a battle with Captain Hook and his crew of pirates. Guests will join Peter Pan in an adventure to rescue Wendy’s younger brother, John, who has been kidnapped by Captain Hook and his pirates. Guests board boats and follow the Lost Boys down a river. When Tinker Bell sprinkles the boats with pixie dust, Guests find themselves flying through Neverland on an unprecedented adventure that features iconic music and dynamic 3D imagery of the characters from the film.
A second attraction immerses Guests in the oversized world of Pixie Hollow where Tinker Bell and her fairy friends live and work. The restaurant is inspired by the Lost Boys and their hideout, affording lovely views of Neverland that Guests can enjoy while they dine.
Tokyo DisneySea Fantasy Springs Hotel
The hotel is officially called the Tokyo DisneySea Fantasy Springs Hotel, and is built around the magical fountain of Fantasy Springs. Paintings inside depicting Disney princesses and motifs of flowers and grasses can be seen throughout the hotel, allowing guests to enjoy their hotel stay within the parks, while retaining the Fantasy Springs experience. The hotel is actually split into two categories — a Deluxe type with 419 guest rooms and a Luxury type with 56 guest rooms offering the finest lodging experience at Tokyo Disney Resort.
