Details Released for Beauty and the Beast Attraction and Other Redevelopment at Tokyo Disneyland


In what is being called the “largest redevelopment in the history of Tokyo Disneyland,” the Oriental Land Company released details today about a number of new facilities coming to the park in the spring of 2020.

From the official news release:

Opening in Fantasyland will be a new area themed to the Disney film Beauty and the Beast. It will feature Enchanted Tale of Beauty and the Beast, a major attraction within Beauty and the Beast Castle, which towers about 30 meters above the surroundings. Guests will board ride vehicles that dance in rhythm to the animated film’s well-known music and follow Belle on a romantic musical adventure. With Village Shoppes and La Taverne de Gaston, Guests will feel like they have entered the world of the film as they enjoy the ambience of Belle’s village.

Also opening in the new area will be Fantasyland Forest Theatre, the first full-scale indoor theater for live entertainment at Tokyo Disneyland. Signature Disney entertainment unique to Tokyo Disneyland and featuring the Disney Friends will be presented in this storybook theater environment.

Themed to the Disney film Big Hero 6, The Happy Ride with Baymax attraction will open in Tomorrowland. Guests will join their own personal healthcare companion for an exciting musical “whip ride” that swings them unpredictably round and round. Also, a shop themed to outer space, The Big Pop, will offer Guests popcorn in multiple flavors that can be purchased together with popcorn buckets.

In Toontown, Minnie’s Style Studio will be the first Disney Character greeting facility in Tokyo Disneyland where Guests can meet Minnie Mouse in person. Dressed in some of her own creations, “fashion designer” Minnie will greet and take pictures with Guests.
