New Attractions Revealed for Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea

New Attractions Revealed for Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea

Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea are slated to get some amazing looking new attractions on 2020. Some of these new plans might be modifications of existing plans that we heard about a few years ago which included a Frozen area.

A Beauty and the Beast area of the park was previously in the plans but it looks like that idea has grown in scope. The new plans released today will see a large portion of Tomorrowland swallowed up by Fantasyland. Including the Grand Circuit Raceway and the Starjets, both set to close in 2017.

See the Progress on Motiongate Dubai

You might have heard about Motiongate Dubai when the Hunger Games land was announced. While that property still doesn't make that much sense in a theme park to me, the rest of the park has the potential to be pretty interesting. The park is split into five lands including Studio Central, Lionsgate, Sony Pictures Studios, Dreamworks and Smurfs Village.

As you can see in the video above they are cramming a lot of attractions in there. None of them sound too terribly exciting but with proper theming they could be cool. Are you heading to Dubai any time soon?

Disney Breaks Ground on Star Wars Land on East and West Coasts

Disney has finally announced that they have broken ground on their Star Wars themed lands. Construction on the 14-acre lands inside Disneyland in California and Disney's Hollywood Studios in Florida are now underway. To celebrate the Disney Parks Blog released a 360 image of the Disneyland construction site, which you can see above.

It'll be a long time before we can be fully immersed in a galaxy far far away. Until then, do you think Star Wars land will live up to the hype?

Star Wars Land to Break Ground Next Month

While we still won't be getting to visit Disney's Star Wars land for a few years, the company has announced that they will be breaking ground on the Star Wars-themed lands next month. That is in both Disneyland Park and Disney's Hollywood Studios.

The news is a little exciting as it will begin an endless amount progress updates as the lands develop. We'll no doubt see an entire new trilogy come to a close before that time however.

Stay tuned to Park Beast for future updates and check out our previous Star Wars posts.

Disneyland Offers A Glimpse at Reimagined Rivers of America

Just yesterday the Mark Twain, Sailing Ship Colombia, Fantasmic, Tom Sawyer Island and Disneyland Railroad were all taken offline to begin work on Disneyland's Star Wars land. The closure of these attractions for at least a year has been met with mixed response from Disneyland faithful.

Today Disneyland has revealed some concept art of the Rivers of America once they return to operation. The shortened rivers will include waterfalls that will likely serve as a berm to keep Star Wars land hidden. Many of the scenes from the previous incarnation of the Rivers of America seems to be returning as well. We might even be able to expect some new additions or improvements once it reopens.

In my opinion, the best part of this change is the Disneyland Railroad going over the trestle bridge. That will no doubt make for some incredible views of the scenery. 

How do you feel about the changes to the Rivers of America? Is this concept art a step in the right direction?
