Changes in Tokyo Disneyland include a huge expansion to Fantasyland which include eating into some of Tomorrowland's territory. it's a small world will also be moved to a new location in Fantasyland.

There are not definite confirmations on attractions going into the land but rumors suggest Alice in Wonderland featuring heavily. Many themes from the Magic Kingdom's New Fantasyland will come into play as well such as The Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast.

Plans for DisneySea are equally as vague. Over in that park lands are referred to as "ports" and the new port could be Frozen themed. Anna and Elsa still might end up in New Fantasyland as plans are still up in the air or at least underwraps. 

Tokyo DisneySea is widely considered to be the best theme park in the world so anything new that goes in there is sure to exceed expectations.

Tokyo Disneyland and DisneySea are high on my bucket list and at least to me represent the pinnacle of Disney theme parks and theme parks in general. Whatever the final product of these expansions are it is sure to be spectacular.
