Tokyo DisneySea names its 8th port 'Fantasy Springs'

By Ben K, grape Japan

Oriental Land Co, the company which operates Tokyo Disneyland and DisneySea, has announced the name of Tokyo DisneySea's eighth port, set to begin operations in 2022. At 140,000 square meters and costing approximately 250 billion yen, "Fantasy Springs" will be the most ambitious expansion since DisneySea opened in 2001.

According to the press release, when you step inside Fantasy Springs, you'll discover waterfalls and ponds "flowing with magical spring waters" which will "guide you to the fantastic world of Disney stories." Guests will be able to enjoy four attractions in themes from Disney films, two of them based on "Peter Pan", one on "Frozen" and one on "Tangled."

In addition, there will be three restaurants and a completely new Disney hotel, overlooking Fantasy Springs, offering deluxe and luxury level accommodations.

Shinto priests performed a ritual to formalize the groundbreaking of the site on Tuesday. Walt Disney Co Chairman Robert Iger also attended.

Add an H.P. Lovecraft (Cthulhu) themed haunted house based on Shadow Over Innsmouth (fish/people hybrids). There is already a warehouse building in the Cape Cod attraction at Disney Sea that has the name LOVECRAFT on it.
