Construction of the Tokyo DisneySea 2022 Expansion Begins

Oriental Land Co., Ltd. is investing about 250 billion yen (US$2.2 billion) which is the largest expansion ever announced. This expansion includes a brand new themed port with three areas themed to Frozen, Tangled, and Peter Pan, 4 attractions, a deluxe hotel, shops, and restaurants. This expansion is planned for fiscal 2022. Read here for full details.

This is in addition to the current expansion already happening at Tokyo Disneyland finishing in 2020 in time for the Summer Olympics.

Construction of this expansion at Tokyo DisneySea has begun and we’re in for a long 4 years of construction at Tokyo DisneySea. The expansion is going behind the Park and taking out part of the current parking lot.

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!
