The pandemic has pushed back the opening of several major theme parks and attractions around Japan in the past two years, so it’s unsurprising that Tokyo DisneySea is also revising the projected timeline for its upcoming expansion. The park’s new section, titled Fantasy Springs, was originally slated for a 2023 opening, but is now scheduled to launch in the spring of 2024 instead.

There’s a staggering ¥320 billion budget for the Northern European-inspired area, which will include the worlds of ‘Tangled’, ‘Frozen’ and ‘Peter Pan’. In addition, there will be a Fantasy Springs hotel featuring 419 deluxe guest rooms and 56 luxury guest rooms with paintings that depict different Disney princesses.

The ‘Tangled’ and ‘Frozen’ sections will each have one restaurant and one attraction, while the ‘Peter Pan’ area will have one restaurant and two new attractions.

Tokyo Disney Resort has released a YouTube video captured by drones to give fans a glimpse of what’s to come. Though there’s still a ways to go, a snow-capped mountain and Arendelle Castle are in the works for the ‘Frozen’ area.

Over at the ‘Tangled’ area, you’ll be able to sail leisurely along a calm river and experience the iconic Lantern Festival that brought Rapunzel and Flynn Rider closer to each other.

In Neverland, you can join the Lost Boys on a boat ride adventure to rescue John, who was kidnapped by pirates, or explore Tinkerbelle’s home in Pixie Hollow.
