Tokyo Disneyland Construction Update (Fall 2019)


The construction continues this fall throughout Tokyo Disneyland, from the new Beauty and the Beast attraction to the refurbishment of Cinderella Castle. There’s a lot of scaffolding happening throughout the Park to get ready for the spring opening and the Olympics. In this update, I’ll show you the progress and what to expect during your visit.

Cinderella Castle Refurbishment

Cinderella Castle is under massive refurbishment now until April 2020. The scaffolding has now completely covered the Castle. The scrims are giving off a Mary Blair vibe and I can’t complain too much about that. I don’t know how long the scaffolding and scrims will stay up on the castle. We’ll try and update with photos as much as possible.

New Park Entrance

The right side of the new Park entrance has been completed for a while and now the left side is going under massive work. This is an upgrade to the park gates to help with the ever-increasing crowds. The construction is expected to last until 2020.

Fantasyland Expansion

The walkway through the new portion of Fantasyland (Beauty and the Beast attraction, shop, restaurant, and new indoor theatre) opened a few months ago to make room for the construction in Tomorrowland (Baymax attraction) and Toontown (Minnie Mouse dedicated Meet and Greet). The expansion has an official opening on April 15, 2020. I wrote about my predictions for soft openings and crowd levels here. For more details about this massive expansion at Tokyo Disneyland please see our detail post.

More Things to Do in Tokyo

My recommendations for things to do in and around Tokyo! Plan a day at the Hello Kitty theme park, Sanrio Puroland, and an afternoon at the popular TeamLab Planets TOKYO. Take a tour around Tokyo with the convenient hop-on and-off bus. Spend a rainy afternoon inside Japan’s largest indoor theme park, Tokyo Joyoplis, near Tokyo Disney!

    This is so exciting! We are going to Japan in April 2020 and I have been following your blog for years to prepare for it. It is a great resource! I will of course buy your travel guides for Tokyo Disney Resort and Osaka Universal Studios. I understand that your Disney guide will be updated this December (hooray!), but will your Universal guide also be updated soon?
