Third Tokyo Disney Park – “Tokyo DisneySky” – reportedly under consideration


According to a report in the Sunday edition of the Mainichi Shimbun, a leading Japanese newspaper, Oriental Land Company (OLC) is making plans for a third park at Tokyo Disney Resort. Consideration is being given to theming the park as Tokyo DisneySky.

EDIT: In a statement late Sunday morning, OLC said it had not made an announcement about a third park.

The sky and space themed park would feature a jet plane simulator, moving walkways, and open as early as 2022.

The news builds on last year’s rumors of a $2.7 billion investment at the resort.

There has been no official announcement from OLC, who own and operate Tokyo Disney Resort.

According to the report in the Mainichi Shimbun, the theming of the new park would be unique to Tokyo Disney Resort, just like Tokyo Disney Sea. Moving walkways would move guests around, and there would be no paper ticketing. Instead, guests would use a smartphone app to gain access to the park.

An official announcement is expected in April or May 2018, with construction set to begin in 2019. The park would be built in the parking area behind Tokyo Disneyland.

    This is very exciting news! The area shown in the graphic has an awkward layout, especially if they want to build upwards and not interfere with site-lines from the existing parks. Could they buy the Urayasu City Sports Park land next door and develop the park there?

    I can’t imagine a third park even though I would love it. I think something else is going on and we need the aide of Basil, the great mouse detective to solve this case. The clues: a flying attraction going into DisneySea… (SKY)… and a new attraction going into Tomorrowland… (SPACE)… Could these key words actually be project names that leaked out and we believe its a 3rd park? Hmmm….
