General Park News - (2/18/15) A few new construction pictures of the work taking place at Tokyo DisneySea can be found on Twitter from the DeepDisney account. Key pictures this week can be found here, here and here.
(1/20/15) A picture posted to Twitter shows off the construction progress on the new mobile stage area going into the front of Tokyo DisneySea this year.
(1/8/15) A trip report with a collection of fabulous looking pictures of Tokyo DisneySea really only makes me want to visit this park more and more, as it truly does raise the bar when it comes to quality theming at a Disney theme park. You can only find Part 1 to this same trip report here, posted to Disney & More.
(12/28/14) Tokyo Disneyland and DisneySea fans will love this update, as Disney & More has posted some great scans over the course of two updates: Part 1 has Tokyo Disneyland and Part 2 shows off the attractions of Tokyo DisneySea. As many of our readers are surely familiar with the Disneyland and Disney World attraction posters, it’s great to see how this tradition has continued in Tokyo as well over the years.
(12/2/14) Tokyo DisneySea is working on a new mobile stage to be used in front of the park’s primary lagoon viewing area. Concept art the stage area and location can be seen near the bottom of this page. Meanwhile construction has already begun and you can see a few pictures of the progress made posted to Twitter here and here.
2015 - King Triton’s Concert - (9/26/14) Tokyo DisneySea has announced that the new “King Triton’s Concert” musical show will open on April 24, 2015 in the Mermaid Lagoon Theater. “Guests can enjoy a brand new show full of dynamic performances, with music and songs from the world under the sea.”
The new 4 Billion Yen, 14 minute long show, will feature King Triton hosting, “a musical concert with Ariel, Flounder, Sebastian and other familiar characters from the Disney film creating a mesmerizing world under the sea with music, songs and dynamic performance, just as in the movie. Ariel will “swim” above the audience to the beautiful music and will even “swim” down and approach Guests in this lively and sensational musical show. For this show, Mermaid Lagoon Theater will be renovated with upgraded stage and lighting technology, as well as new display screens to be installed around the audience seating area.”
(6/24/13) BlooLoop reports that Tokyo DisneySea will add an all new musical production themed around The Little Mermaid in 2015, inside the park’s Mermaid Lagoon Theater. The theater itself will receive an extensive new lighting package as well as other special stage tech upgrades. The story this time will involve the performance of a musical concert for King Triton. Look for it to open in Spring 2015. The current Mermaid Lagoon Theater show will close down for good on April 6th, 2014 to allow for the nearly year-long upgrade.
???? - 8th Port / Arendelle - Confirmed - (10/30/14) The Oriental Land Company made a huge announcement regarding the future expansion of both the Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea theme parks a short time ago. This is apparently part of a planned 500 billion Yen investment into the resort over the next 10 years, which roughly converts to an amazing $4.59 billion US dollars. (Click here to see the Fantasyland plans)
At Tokyo DisneySea the park will add an entirely new land, or rather, a new port, into a section of empty land left open for future development located south of the Lost River Delta area. This new 8th Port will feature new attractions, shops and restaurants. While they also promise “multiple major attractions” to be part of this new port, they also say that the overall size and scale of the port will be about the same size as the Arabian Coast port.
While they don’t come right out and say it for sure, it is believed that the 8th port at Tokyo DisneySea might be Arendelle, the kingdom from the hit animated film, Frozen. While not listed in the press release itself, it was mentioned elsewhere that they would be adding a Frozen area and since Arendelle is a “port” kingdom, it would only make sense to put it in Tokyo DisneySea as well. More on this when we find out!
