Oriental Land Co. has made a huge announcement for their future plans (read the full details in Japanese and English) for the further development of Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea. This includes a 500 billion yen investment over the next 10 years. We will see a Fantasyland expansion and a new themed land at Tokyo DisneySea, along with some other improvements to the parks.
The land will be doubled in size along with major new attractions, restaurants, and shops. It will also take out some of Tomorrowland, but Toontown will stay intact. Which is a good thing.
The plan for Tokyo Disneyland Park centers on the redevelopment of Fantasyland, which will nearly double the size of the themed land. Work on implementing this large-scale area development has already begun. In addition to the renovation of the existing Fantasyland, major new attractions, restaurants, and shops will be be included.
