Vote Disney HOW TO VOTE OUR BOARD REASONS TO VOTE Open sub navigation EXPERT ANALYSIS NEWS & MEDIAOpen sub navigation CONTACTS LEGAL NOTICES Fantasy Springs at Tokyo DisneySea Brings the Worlds of ‘Tangled,’ ‘Peter Pan’ and ‘Frozen’ to Life There’s 100 days until Fantasy Springs—the eighth themed port at Tokyo DisneySea Park—comes to life on June 6. To celebrate, Disney has revealed a treasure trove of details about new areas inspired by three of Walt Disney Animation Studios’ most beloved films. There’s Rapunzel’s Forest from 2010’s Tangled, Peter Pan’s Never Land from 1953’s Peter Pan and Frozen Kingdom from the 2013 blockbuster, Frozen. Located at Tokyo DisneySea, Fantasy Spring finds itself nestled between the resort’s Lost River Delta and the Arabian Coast areas. The new port will be an entryway for guests into the magical worlds of these films, which will include innovative attractions, stunning restaurants, cozy shops, and the Tokyo DisneySea Fantasy Springs Hotel. Here’s a brief look at what’s to come.

Rapunzel’s Forest Tangled is one of Disney’s most popular films and for the first time in any Disney Park guests will be able to partake in the story of Rapunzel through festivities, locales, and encounters. For starters, there’s Rapunzel’s Lantern Festival. This lovely gondola tour will be both romantic and thrilling as it tells the story of Rapunzel exploring the kingdom of Corona and falling for thief Flynn Rider (AKA Eugene Fitzherbert).

For refreshments, there’s the Snuggly Duckling—the famed watering hole from the film—at which many ruffians dreamt of having more in their lives. This counter-service restaurant will be tucked away among the trees and will offer delectable food choices such as the Duckling’s Dream Cheeseburger. Peter Pan’s Never Land You won’t have fly to the second star to the right to land in Peter Pan’s Never Land any longer thanks to Fantasy Springs. There’ll be plenty of excitement when guests come aboard Peter Pan’s Never Land Adventure. The attraction allows guests to soar alongside Peter Pan, Tinker Bell and the Lost Kids as they attempt to save John from the clutches of Captain Hook

Swashbuckling can make you hungry, so luckily Lookout Cookout—a counter service restaurant—will offer all types of food and drink including the Lost Kids’ Snack Box. The Box comes with chicken tenders, seaweed fritters, banana and shrimp chips, and a Pixie Dust Soda (Kiwi) that comes with a star-shaped topping that dissolves into the drink, creating a silver sparkling effect inspired by Tinker Bell’s magical pixie dust. And if you’re still hungry, you can fly over to Popcorn Wagon to snack on roast beef flavored popcorn—available for the first time at Tokyo Disney Resort.

 Frozen Kingdom Whether it’s summer or winter, the joys of Frozen will come to life at Frozen Kingdom. The Fantasy Springs area will invite guests to enjoy the sights, tastes, and fun of Arendelle—the kingdom and home of Anna, Elsa and the other beloved characters from the hit franchise, Frozen. You can set out on a voyage via Anna and Elsa’s Frozen Journey, which takes guests on an adventurous and heartwarming tale of the two sisters. The boat adventure will include popular songs from the original film as well as memories of the excitement and love that Anna and Elsa share. After the adventure, guests can dine at the Royal Banquet of Arendelle.

This counter-service restaurant will include books and artwork from the world of Frozen. Guests will also be able to eat delicious meals inspired by the film, including Arendelle’s Royal Set — a meal served to guests in a basket that has a variety of mouthwatering dishes from appetizers to dessert. Tokyo DisneySea Fantasy Springs Hotel Beyond the worlds of the film, guests can also rest their heads at the Tokyo DisneySea Fantasy Springs Hotel. The park-integrated Disney hotel is situated near Fantasy Springs, which allows guests to be immersed in the world during their stay at this hotel. Interiors will be inspired by Disney princesses, flora and fauna with motifs of the themed port, and more. The hotel is made up of two buildings: Fantasy Chateau, a deluxe type, and Grand Chateau, a luxury type which will offer the finest accommodation experience at Tokyo Disney Resort.

The expansive Fantasy Springs at Tokyo DisneySea is just another example of The Walt Disney Company’s commitment to turbocharging its parks, resorts, and experiences. Disney announced in September of 2023 that it’s developing plans to accelerate and expand investment in its Experiences segment to nearly double capital expenditures over the course of approximately 10 years to roughly $60 billion. Massive lands such as Zootopia at Shanghai Disney Resort and World of Frozen at Hong Kong Disneyland resort—which opened last year—as well as the upcoming Tiana’s Bayou Adventure at Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California and Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida are all state of the art investments in the future of Disney Experiences.
