Tokyo Disney Resort Theme Park will be expanded with $2.7 billion investment, and it will be featured an attraction on hit film "Frozen". And the investment would be the amusement park operator’s biggest since it opens in 2001.
Oriental Land is the Japanese operator of the Tokyo Disney Resort, which started with the opening of Tokyo Disneyland in 1983 in Urayasu on the outskirts of Tokyo. The theme park, featuring theme park rides such as “Pirates of the Caribbean” and “Splash Mountain,” draws in about 30 million visitors annually.
The Oriental Land company has started talks with U.S. entertainment firm Walt Disney Co on the expansion plan, the Nikkei reported, without citing sources. The Oriental Land company plans to expand the resort’s 100 hectare site by about 30 percent and open new attractions around 2023, the newspaper said. The expansion plan is designed to alleviate the amusement park’s chronic congestion, it said.
The company will also consider adding an attraction to the expansion based on the Disney animated film “Frozen”. Oriental Land said it has been planning a major development from its financial year beginning April 2021 and later but that nothing specific has been decided.
