Tokyo DisneySea Getting New Soarin' And Shanghai Disneyland Getting Zootopia Land!

Tokyo & Shanghai's Disneylands are really starting to eclipse our own. Their attractions are always on the next level of innovation. Their two amazing announcements this week are no exception. First, Soarin' is coming to TokyoSea, but not the way we're used to. It will feature a trip around the world, feeling the breeze with new sights of famous landscapes & scents, but this one will have it's own theme & backstory. Not to mention cool DaVinci-esque looking flyers. Oriental Land Company gave a look at its backstory, "Nestled in the hills of Mediterranean Harbor, amidst the backdrop of an old-world Italian village, the Museum of Fantastic Flight is dedicated to humankind’s enduring dream of flying. Today, the museum celebrates Camellia Falco—a visionary innovator in the fledgling field of aviation—with a special retrospective of her life.

A grand tour of the museum includes a magical visit from the spirit of Camellia and culminates with Guests boarding her latest and greatest achievement—a flying vehicle of her own design called the Dream Flyer. Guests soon experience what Camellia believed, that our imagination can propel us into the future and take us everywhere in the world we wish to go. And before Guests know it, their spirits are sent soaring." This sounds totally amazing on so many levels. I love Soarin', but with this announcement it seems second rate all the sudden. While the next announcement from Shanghai Disneyland doesn't come with that much detail, it makes up for it in size. They've announced a whole Zootopia themed land! Their 8th themed land at that. It will feature a state of the art attraction that will bring the characters of Zootopia alive. Along with the obvious amount of merchandise & foods, fully immersing fans in the world of Zootopia. Construction is targeted for this year. Shanghai has become the park I want to visit the most. It's a little too far to hop in the car & go. There's also the matter of all that water in between. There's some concept art below that came with these articles, check it out. Afterwards throw your thoughts in the comments, like, & share.


Check Out Progress At Toy Story Land In Both Orlando & Shanghai!!

Wow! Disney Parks just put up this look at all the progress so far for Toy Story Land In both Shanghai Disneyland & Hollywood Studios, Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida. Last week we found out they'll be opening in Hollywood Studios on June 30th, & now we get a look at a little of what to expect in action. Though I'm not as excited about this as say, Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, I have a feeling that will change when I get a real sense of the scale of the place. It looks huge! Slinky Dog's starting to grow on me a little now too. It's ride just looks so smooth. I still say, I'm a little more impressed by the look of Shanghai's version, but in all honesty, I'm totally blown away by everything I see in that park. Check this out, & let me know what y'all think. I can't wait to see this place! Put it in the comments, like, & share.

New Park For Disneyland Tokyo & Toy Story Land For Disneyland Shanghai

This first part is still pretty far off in the future with further plans to be revealed in May 2018, & construction beginning in 2025. Viral Disney has reported that Disney & it's partners in the Oriental Land Company have revealed plans for an all-new Japanese theme park with the focus on it's host country with new characters. It will be focused on the culture of Japan much like California Adventure to California most likely. That's about all there is on that, but if you factor in Studio Ghibli they already have some very interesting things already sharing the Disney branding. I'm very curious to see where this is going, I've been thinking about planning a trip to Japan just for Disneyland. I might have to postpone it if this thing looks really cool. The next bit is way more fleshed out, but that's probably because it's right around the corner. WDW News Today reports Shanghai's Disneyland's Toy Story Land, opening summer 2018, has released some concept art & details about the layout. I hate to say, their Toy Story Land looks like it's gonna destroy ours. Shanghai's Toy Story Land looks huge with some awesome attractions. Slinky Dog Spin, where you'll take a seat inside Slinky Dog's spirals & race around a wavy roundabout. There's Rex's Racer, an RC car that goes forwards & backwards increasing height & speed. They'll have Woody's Round-Up where you'll swing to & fro in time to lively music in pony drawn carts. After that there's the obvious Meeting Post (Meet & Greet), Al's Toy Barn (Merchandise), & the Toy Box Café (Restaurant). The whole land is set up around immersion on a Pandora: World of Avatar level. There's a whole story of being shrunk down to toy size that goes with the land. I'm really blown away by these concept photos. If you haven't seen some of the ride videos already from Disneyland in Shanghai watch them. This park is becoming a must-see very quickly.
