Tokyo Disney Resort has just announced an opening date for its New Fantasyland expansion.
The new area in Fantasyland, including a Beauty and the Beast dark ride and a Big Hero 6 swirling ride, is set to open September 28th.
The expansion was originally set to open April 15, 2020, but had been pushed back due to coroanvirus.
The Beauty and Beast dark ride will feature top-of-the line animatronics as guests venture through Beast’s castle.
The Beauty and the Beast area is just a slight portion of a major $665M expansion which will also feature Big Hero 6, a new Minnie Mouse greeting area and a new show, Mickey’s Magical Music World.
There will also be a small Big Hero 6” area, featuring Happy Ride with Baymax.
Tokyo Disney is known for its unique food offerings— and there will be a store devoted to only popcorn when the expansion opens.
For Beauty and the Beast, Baymax, and Minnie’s Style Studio require a reservation through the official Tokyo Disney Resort app. Reservations are also required for the restaurants and shops.
