General Park News - (12/19/12) The Disney Parks Blog confirms that a new character show called “Mickey & Duffy’s Spring Voyage” will be added to Tokyo DisneySea in 2013, from March 18 through June 30th.
(8/2/12) Disney and More takes us on a great aerial tour of Tokyo DisneySea this week, and is also quick to point out that a great photo book about DisneySea that was previously only available through iBooks, has now been made available to everyone as an eBook as well. Check it out.
(6/6/12) While the explanation is a bit confusing, the Japanese media reports that Oriental Land Company has placed the blame for the incident on Raging Spirits on the ride operator who apparently did not follow proper procedure. The excuse seems odd as it talks about how the operator pushed down the safety bar on an empty seat (which is typical at American parks at least) but fails to mention how this reflects upon what took place with the man who tried to get out.
(5/30/12) The local news reports than an guest incident occurred at Tokyo DisneySea on Monday involving the Raging Spirits coaster. According to the report, as the ride started to move out of the station a 34-year old passenger noticed that his restraint bar was still up. He panicked and instead of pulling it down, he tried to jump out of the slowly moving car. The ride will undergo a safety inspection and will be closed until this has been completed.
2013-2015 - Soarin’ - Rumor - (2/23/09) The latest word is that the Soarin’ project has been put on the backburner for now while they look at adding a couple of other projects to the park first.
(5/7/07) The latest rumor claims that we likely wont see Soarin’ show up until 2011 or 2012 now, possibly as part of DisneySea’s 10th Anniversary (Sept. 4th, 2011). Between now and then, Oriental Land Company will be focused on plans for Tokyo Disneyland’s 25th Anniversary (April 15th, 2008) and the opening of the Monster’s Inc. ride in 2009. Again, Soarin’ is apparently just one of a few different attraction ideas under consideration for the park’s 10th Anniversary, so don’t count on it just yet.
(5/4/07) If the latest rumors are true the Oriental Land Company is looking to add a custom version of Soarin’ somewhere in the park’s Mediterranean Harbor area. Obviously this version of the ride would have to feature a brand new ride film that would appeal to Japanese audiences.
