Update as of March 26:
Everything's all set for Legoland Japan's opening on April 1.
A commuter train decorated inside and out with bold graphics inspired by four LEGOLAND Japan attractions began daily service on the Nagoya Rinkai Rapid Transit’s Aonami Line, which travels from central Nagoya to the new theme park. The attractions are Lost Kingdom Adventure, The Dragon Coaster, Rescue Academy and Submarine Adventure.
“Today, I am extremely honored to be able to introduce the LEGOLAND Train, the only one of its kind in the world in Nagoya, after plans for it were put into motion nearly three years ago,” said Torben Jensen, divisional director of LEGOLAND Japan, who added that the special train was made possible by the support of the city of Nagoya and the Aonami Line.
The "heart" of the resort will be an indoor, covered and open-air experience that will host a couple of exhibitions and music events. Every day, during afternoons, there will be a "Paramount and Friends Carnival," where costumed people and themed rides take place."We are planning to follow this every evening with a spectacular show celebrating the works of Paramount Pictures and our other content partners," Paramount said in its website. During the evenings, a West End production will take place around the park where it could show Paramount films, BBC and Aardman productions and live concerts and performances
Here's the latest video posted on PortAventura's official YouTube page.
Here's a video of Duplo Valley in Legoland's Bricktopia area, another fun attraction for kids.
The battle escape building is growing, and the AT-AT's are still nested in there. Meanwhile, the super collider is building up and looking even more...round than it ever has. Also, the Fantasmic storage building has basically disappeared behind a mound of dirt and trees.
The $1.6 billion destination resort Atlantis Sanya will open at the end of the year on Hainan Island in China
The Aquaventure Waterpark lies at the heart of Atlantis Sanya – an extraordinary waterscape with a host of interactive experiences. Entertainment and education swim side by side. Lagoons, fresh and salt water pools entice. An extensive spa menu caters to the sybaritic side. World-class dining and luxurious accommodation completes the package.
The resort will naturally share similarities with the other Atlantis resort. However certain cultural and practical variations will be incorporated to celebrate the destination. “Our attractions in general at the new resort are larger and more numerous because of the expected guest volume, ” says Stokes. “For example, the ‘Lost Chambers Aquarium’ is an impressive two floor attraction with 34 exotic habitats. And our Dolphin Cay now includes a full stadium.”

In the adjacent Northeastern section of Star Wars Land, a the new berm will separate the atmosphere of Star Wars Land from the newly re-routed Disneyland Railroad. This area also includes the entrance from Fantasyland, which could be one of the spots for a MaxPass scanner.
The Southeastern area is where the Fantasmic backstage will be along side the tunnel entrance to Star Wars Land from Frontierland.
The south section of Star Wars Land is where the Disneyland Railroad will pass on the outer wall in front of a waterfall into the Rivers Of America and a walkway will go from Critter Country around the Hungry Bear Restaurant and into Star Wars Land.
