Tokyo DisneySea Construction Update (May 2019)

Construction continues at Tokyo DisneySea with a few projects. Scaffolding has gone up on parts of Mount Prometheus (it’s not that bad) as it begins its refurbishment. The final touches for the new attraction Soaring: Fantastic Flight (opens July 23, 2019) are coming to light and it looks beautiful!

As part of the major expansions at Tokyo Disney Resort, the new area at Tokyo DisneySea is slowly starting to take shape. While it’s only groundwork at this point, it’s great to see progress.

It’s an exciting time at Tokyo Disney Resort with new areas, attractions, restaurants, and hotels coming by 2022. For more information on what’s coming to Tokyo Disney Resort read our summary here. Don’t forget to see our update for Tokyo Disneyland too!

Opening on July 23, 2019, the newest attraction at Tokyo DisneySea is coming along nicely.

I’m super excited for this attraction and the possible merchandise that comes with it! Alright, now let’s talk about that huge iconic mountain in the middle of the Park.

Mount Prometheus

Refurbishment is underway for Mount Prometheus. It appears the work is being done in sections and not covering up the entire structure at once (that wouldn’t make sense).

A lot of Explorers were devastated thinking they wouldn’t be able to get a photo of this iconic centrepiece to the best theme park in the world. Don’t worry, with some creative angles you’re able to get that beautiful photo!

Now, let’s take a look at the expansion area at Tokyo DisneySea!

Tokyo DisneySea Expansion

Not too much to show except all the groundwork being done at Bayside Station (where the Hilton Tokyo Bay is located). Groundbreaking for this expansion is set for May 21, 2019!

Construction at Bayside Station is quite extensive. This is where you’ll access the Official Hotels such as the Hilton Tokyo Bay.

    What a fantastic update, Chris! Soaring area looks so different than last October (last time I visited), it’ll be gorgeous. TDR will never fail to amaze me. Thanks for sharing these detailed updates ?

    omg 2025 (for our long-planned visit) can’t get here soon enough, LOL! Great photos of Soaring. And it appears to me, like they are building the new Magic Springs hotel first. Then, it’ll act like one of those legendary Disney parks “berms” that blocks the outside world from looking in. And vice versa. (o; Thanks for the updates, Chris!
