Fantasy Springs, the newest addition to Tokyo DisneySea in Urayasu, Chiba Prefecture, was unveiled to the media on May 7. With an investment of approximately ¥320 billion JPY (around $2 billion USD), it marks the largest expansion in the theme park's history.

This enchanting realm boasts attractions inspired by beloved Disney classics such as Frozen, Peter Pan, and Tangled. Featuring impressive replicas of a famous castle and pirate ship, Fantasy Springs promises an immersive adventure bound to captivate many visitors. The grand opening is set for June 6.

Upon entering, visitors are warmly greeted by staff and immediately drawn to the monumental sculptures of Disney princesses carved into a sprawling rock wall. Cinderella is depicted leaving behind her glass slipper, while Sleeping Beauty faces her prince. A pond in the shape of Snow White's silhouette creates a magical scene.

Four New Attractions

The Frozen Kingdom area showcases Arendelle Castle, the home of Anna and Elsa, complete with its gates and bridge — all rendered with impressive quality. The North Mountain and Elsa's ice palace can be seen in the distance.

Spanning 140,000 square meters (around 1.5 million square feet), Fantasy Springs comprises three thematic zones based on Disney movies and a luxurious hotel. It offers a total of four new attractions. 

In Peter Pan's Never Land, adventurers can explore a pirate ship, while Rapunzel's Forest beckons with the iconic tower that served as her abode, drawing visitors into her world.

Special 1-Day Passport

To minimize wait times for attractions, guests can opt for the 1-Day Passport: Fantasy Springs Magic. Depending on demand, the pass is priced between ¥22,900 and ¥25,900 (around $147–$166) for adults. The pass grants unlimited access to the new area and all four attractions, enabling users to enjoy attractions multiple times during the park's operating hours. However, it is exclusively available to guests staying at the new Tokyo DisneySea Fantasy Springs Hotel.

The hotel comprises two buildings: the "luxury type" Grand Chateau (56 rooms) and the "deluxe type" Fantasy Chateau (419 rooms). The former starts at ¥300,000 (around $1,930) and the latter at ¥66,000 ($420) as of May 7 — higher than standard Tokyo hotel prices. Therefore, to enjoy all the new attractions with minimal wait times using Fantasy Springs Magic would cost at least around ¥90,000 ($600) in total.

While reservations for the hotel can be made up to four months in advance, all rooms are fully booked until September, according to the hotel's operator Milial Resort Hotels.

Alternatively, without the special pass, visitors must obtain a free Standby Pass or Disney Premier Access. This is in addition to the 1-Day Passport Tokyo DisneySea, priced between ¥7,900 and ¥10,900 (around $50–70) for adults. The passes can be purchased through the Tokyo Disney Resort app. Fantasy Springs Magic could be a better option for a hassle-free experience.
