Increased Police Presence at Tokyo Disney Resort During Olympics
The Tokyo 2020 Summer Olympics began July 23, 2021, and go until August 8, 2021. There’s been an increase in security in Tokyo and the surrounding areas. This includes Tokyo Disney Resort.
Around the Resort are patrolling police officers. It’s a sight that isn’t common in this area. While there is a Police box beside Bon Voyage, you almost never see police patrolling around.
This increase is due to the high alert in the Tokyo area due to the Summer Olympics. It’s a way to help and keep everyone safe. I was at the Resort yesterday and noticed police and even police vans around.

June 3, 2021
Starting June 4, 2021, you’ll be able to buy the “Spring in Bloom” Duffy merchandise inside Bon Voyage. Why is this news? Duffy merchandise has been exclusively in Tokyo DisneySea or through the official app (with a day ticket to Tokyo DisneySea).
So this is a first seeing Duffy merchandise outside of Tokyo DisneySea.
With that said, the “Spring in Bloom” items are the only ones available outside Tokyo DisneySea. The new summer items are still exclusively inside Tokyo DisneySea.
