Just when you thought Tokyo Disneyland couldn’t get any bigger or better, reports are emerging that the House of Mickey will be receiving a few new attractions. The new features will be spread across both theme parks, Disneyland and Disney Sea.
The new attractions coming are based around animated feature classic, Beauty and the Beast and a more modern fare, Big Hero 6. The Beauty and the Beast section will see Beast’s castle faithfully recreated complete with a ride through the castle telling the story we all know. On top of that, Belle’s village will also be present which will be a shopping and dining area.
Not much has been revealed around the Big Hero 6 feature. All Disney have said is that it’ll be a “spinning ride” complete with caretaker robots. I’m intrigued.
Disney Sea will be receiving it’s own upgrade with the inclusion of the Soarin’ ride. This feature first showed up in 2001 at Disney’s California Adventure Park.
Instead of representing a glider as used at the US ride, the Japan version will see flying machines inspired by Leonardo Da Vinci.
2019 is the opening year for Soarin’ with the other attractions ready to be opened in time for the 2020 Summer Olympics.
