Tokyo Disneyland Operational Changes From November 1, 2021

Following the recent news that Tokyo Disney Resort is set to increase park hours and guest capacity, the Resort is continuing to re-open attractions across Tokyo Disneyland and DisneySea.

Play Areas Reopen

Since re-opening, both Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea have been operating under reduced capacity, with a number of attractions, shows and restaurants yet to return to service.

From November 1st, the following attractions are set to open:

  • Tom Sawer Island Rafts (Tokyo Disneyland)
  • Fortress Explortations “The Leonard Challenge” (DisneySea)
  • Ariel’s Playground (DisneySea)

Operations Update

With the reopening of these areas, we hope to see a gradual return of much-missed shows and restaurants around the resort. While a number of shows such as ‘Hello, New York!’ at DisneySea have been confirmed to not be returning, the following are still listed on the resort’s website, but yet to re-open at the resort.

The majority of shops and dining options yet to return are smaller offerings such as outdoor dining carts and gift shops which can be reintroduced once capacity and demand increase.

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!
