Google Earth has updated Satellite images from mid-January, so you can really see the scale of the construction.

Hoping that these new attractions - which I'm completely uninterested in - will reduce the queues for the rides in the rest of the park which I find far more appealing. 🤞

Not sure if I should be posting this here since while it's DisneySea news, it's not really anything about the new expansion.

Late bringing this up, but there's also more projection mapping shennanigans including some on Mt Prometheus

And work is well underway on the Fantasmic replacement

Ride vehicle designs for a bunch of the rides for the new Fantasy springs area have been shown off at D23, I really like them but my favourite is the pirate ship one for the Peter Pan attraction.

Here is a good video showing current progress with the new Fantasy Springs as well some concept art and a better look at the ride vehicles.

And here are some posters for each of the rides, what a great amount of rides they are adding, cannot wait to see how they all turn out.

I'm so excited for this expansion, all the attractions look like they're going to be awesome. Most hyped for the new Peter Pan ride, especially after seeing the model of the ride vehicle. However I have read this might be more flight simulator-y rather than cool trackless dark ride - I guess even the fab poster hints that it'll be based on flying to an extent.

Hopefully they'll reveal some more updates on Sunday at the parks panel at D23.

That pirate boat vehicle looks amazing if perhaps a little claustrophobic. The walled-off sides do suggest a simulator-type experience, though.


Edit: Something I've noticed is that the TDS Frozen boat has lap bars and seat dividers unlike those on Frozen Ever After. Could we be looking at a different, perhaps more thrilling layout?

Does Pirates in Shanghai have lapbars? Maybe it's going to use the same tech, could make sense with whirlwinds and escaping and such

I’m assuming they want this done before they close Space Mountain at the sister park. Makes me want to get to Japan in 2024 even more.

I'm pencilling in Easter next year for a visit. It'll still be ridiculous then, but I'm not going near it in 2024.

It looks beautiful, but I really think this belongs in Tokyo Disneyland park and not Tokyo Disneysea.

I'm sure they will still be ludicrously popular though!

Well Fantasy springs is open and honestly it looks fantastic.

Here are POVs for the new rides:





And here is a great overview video:


Its odd that for me the best Disney park is not owned by Disney but this makes it even better than before. Each ride is a decent addition but all of them, wow, this new land looks fantastic.

Looks incredible. I'm going to be in Japan in September but the only day i have free to visit is a bank holiday which i imagine would involve 3+ hour queues for every attraction, don't think i can face it.

I think I've been on a public holiday before - it was certainly a day showing as 90% busy on crowd calendars, and it really wasn't too bad. If you make use of Fastpasses (or whatever they're called now), single rider lines, etc. and are happy criss-crossing the park and walking a ton, then I've never found DisneySEA to be all that difficult. The only thing I've never bothered with is Toy Story Mania because it gets crazy lines, I've done it elsewhere and it's just not very good.

That said, I could well imagine people going mental for the new land...

Thanks. From what i can see you can no loner buy fast passes in advance, you have to buy them as one shots whilst in the park via the app?

If that's the case i'll probably make a decision when i'm in Japan and scope out how the queue times look once the new area opens.

You used to get them free from the distribution machines. I understand now that you buy them individually in the app, but I think there may be one free one you can get. I was supposed to go last week so I'd have figured the new system out then, but my friend hurt his back so we didn't go on the end!
