Exciting things are happening overseas at Tokyo Disneyland! A new, themed port called Fantasy Springs is coming to Tokyo DisneySea and exciting aerial video footage that was shared at Destination D23 shows how expansive it will be when completed. Fantasy Springs will be the park’s eighth and largest port when it opens in 2023. While that sounds very far off, we all know that a year passes by in the blink of an eye and 2022 is already practically on our doorsteps. Which means…Fantasy Springs will be making its grand debut before we know it!

Fantasy Springs will include a Disney luxury/deluxe hotel and three separate areas, each dedicated to a different Walt Disney Animation Studios film: “Frozen,” “Tangled,” and “Peter Pan.” Attractions, restaurants, and immersive spaces will lead Guests into the world of each story. It all sounds amazingly wonderful and I can’t wait to experience it for myself. Just the sneak peek from the model gives me the chills! You can check out the sneak peek videos for each area below.
The concept model you will see in the below videos is one-fiftieth of the actual size of the port. During the development process (per the Disney Parks Blog), Walt Disney Imagineering uses concept art, drawings, and models to plan out the arrangement and size of buildings and area development. The model is painted and shot from different angles to provide more concrete views of Fantasy Springs.
I really really want to be able to pick a favorite out of the three but so far but I just can’t! Disney Imagineers are so wonderfully creative and they are so good at immersing Guests into the worlds of our favorite films and stories and each of these areas will have something different to offer. While it’s exciting to look at these models, it’s even more exciting to see the real life progress Disney is making in creating these expansive and magical new areas just for us! It’s just completely mind-blowing how Disney is able to create the worlds from the ground up. Take a look at the aerial footage…warning: this video may give you chills!
