Tokyo DisneySea’s new Fantasy Springs area is now open. Here’s what awaits visitors

Tokyo DisneySea – the global brand’s only ocean-themed park – has just unveiled its long-awaited expansion to the public.

The new themed land, called Fantasy Springs, combines the worlds of three popular Disney movie franchises – “Peter Pan,” “Frozen” and “Tangled.”

(The resort’s original Tokyo Disneyland park – owned by Oriental Land Co. Ltd. – opened its doors in 1983 and was the first Disney park to be built outside of the United States.)

A few Disney firsts

Visitors to the new port first head through a tunnel passage made of rocks shaped like Disney characters from the three film franchises that inspired Fantasy Springs.

Behind the waterfall at the entrance, called Magic Fountain, sits four new rides, a new hotel and eight new dining outlets (including three inside the hotel).

One of the most anticipated additions inside Fantasy Springs is undoubtedly Rapunzel’s Forest, Disney’s first Tangled-inspired themed area.

Visitors can tour the kingdom of Corona, visit the tower where Rapunzel lives and relive the love story between Rapunzel and kraken15.at thief Flynn Rider on a five-minute gondola ride called Rapunzel’s Lantern Festival.

The Snuggly Duckling, a tavern named for and designed like the speakeasy featured in the movie, serves the likes of cheeseburgers and German-style pancake desserts.
