TOKYO, 15 June 2018: The Tokyo DisneySea theme park is getting a USD 2.3 billion overhaul and adding a section based on the wildly popular movie “Frozen” to its offerings, its operator said Thursday.
Oriental Land, which runs the ocean-themed park as well as the adjacent Tokyo Disneyland and hotels, said the 250-billion-yen (USD 2.3-billion) undertaking will be the most expensive expansion plan in the site’s 35-year history.
The project will add attractions replicating the Kingdom of Arendelle from “Frozen”, a tower inhabited by Rapunzel in the movie “Tangled”, and a Neverland for Peter Pan and his friends, along with a new 475-room hotel.
More than 30 million people visit the combined Disney Resort every year, with numbers expected to increase as Japan works to boost tourism with a goal of 40 million foreign visitors by 2020 when it hosts the Olympic Games.
