    BREAKING: “New Fantasyland” will open at Tokyo Disneyland on April 15, 2020!

    “New Fantasyland” includes an area themed to the popular Disney film Beauty and the Beast. From Maurice’s Cottage at the entrance, to Gaston’s fountain, and the village restaurants and shops, Guests can immerse themselves in the world of the film as they enjoy the ambience of Belle’s village. Towering above the forest is Beauty and the Beast Castle which houses Enchanted Tale of Beauty and the Beast, an attraction where Guests follow Belle and Beast on a romantic musical adventure in vehicles that dance in rhythm to the animated film’s well-known music. Leaving the area themed to Beauty and the Beast and plunging deeper into the forest, Guests will find Fantasyland Forest Theatre, the first full-scale indoor theater at Tokyo Disneyland with live entertainment featuring the Disney Friends.

    The Happy Ride with Baymax, where Guests can join their own personal healthcare companion for an exciting ride that swings them unpredictably round and round, will open in Tomorrowland along with a shop specializing in popcorn.

    In Toontown, guests can meet Minnie Mouse in person at the new Disney Character greeting facility, Minnie’s Style Studio.

    With over three years of construction and a total investment of about 75 billion Japanese yen, the largest redevelopment in the history of Tokyo Disneyland promises to further enchant Guests with an array of brand-new experiences. April 15, 2020 marks the beginning of a new era for Tokyo Disneyland.

    The Wizarding World of Harry Potter







    Despicable Me/Minions area



    Tom Williams, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Universal Parks & Resorts, talking about Universal Beijing:

    I keep reminding myself in less than two years, about a year-and-a-half from now, we will be open in Beijing, China with a fabulous resort. It will be the largest park we have ever built. You know, you just don't show up in China and build a park. You have to go through, I have been going over there for 16, 17 years building relationships and Brian's been very helpful in that regard as well. And we were invited and so we have got a fabulous parcel of land, a thousand acres.

    It's at an ideal intersection of the Beijing-Harbin Expressway and the Sixth Ring Road. It's about 45 minutes out of downtown Beijing. It's got all the best IP's. We are going to have 1,200 hotel rooms, including a Universal Grand Hotel will be part of the opening. We will have a CityWalk there. We have so much land that we will be able to, in due course, if business warrants the investment, we would be able to, we have enough room to build more hotels and another park, a waterpark. I mean there is a lot of upside there. So we are well on our way. It's on schedule, on budget. The ops teams are progressing nicely against the timelines. And so that's coming to us in less than two years. In about a year-and-a-half, we will be open.
    It will have the 1,200 rooms to begin with, located in two different locations. It's got a great location going for it. It's got Harry Potter. It's got Transformers. It's got Minions. It's got Hollywood. It's got Jurassic Park with new rides that we have never done before. I mean it's a terrific line-up giving weight to the winter weather in Beijing for about a month. It's got colder temperatures in Osaka. Our park in Osaka open 12 months of the year. So we know we are going to get wintertime visitation.

    But indifference to it, two-thirds of the attractions are indoors. About 40% of the total park facilities are completely indoors. Now there is a Kung Fu Panda Land, it's 100% indoors. The rides are indoors. The shops are indoors. It's all indoors. And so we think that ratio of the total park capacity aligns nicely with the expected visitation on those cold, cold days. You wouldn't need it any more because not that many more people are going to come. So we think we planned it correctly.
    The bottom of this article includes an interesting interview with Duan Qiang, chairman of Beijing Tourism Group, regarding the development of Universal Beijing and the integration of Chinese-made IPs in the eventual second theme park: http://www.bbtnews.com.cn/2019/0911/319109.shtml

    Tom Williams, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Universal Parks & Resorts, talking about Super Nintendo World at Universal Studios Japan:

    We are going to open up next spring. It's a whole new separate area of the park. It's got food. It's got merchandise. The first phase will have two rides, Super Mario Kart ride and as well as Yoshi's Adventures. Yoshi is one of the other Nintendo characters. There will be two rides. The whole land is interactive. And you are going to have a wristband that's got the big red Mario symbol on it. By the way, the wristband is super cool. It's all magnetic. You slap it on your wrist and it just snaps on and it won't come off. And that allows you to, on an interactive basis throughout the entire land which is built on three different levels. It's got all the popular Bowser's deal and Princess Peach's Castle and all the different key elements. And you will be able to go up and keep score and play with the various games and that also translates to a score keeping capability, if you choose to do so within the rides and it actually interfaces back with your game console. So you can build on it and come back again and really got everything going for it.
