General Resort News - (9/1/21) Long time Screamscape readers… and I mean LONG LONG TIME… may recall reading our reports about SciFi City for Tokyo Disneyland. As a follow up to how DIsney revamped Tomorrowland in Walt Disney World and Disneyland during the ‘90s, Tokyo’s Tomorrowland was next in line for what would have been the greatest revamp in all history. All of the existing Tomorrowland attractions would have been revamped into all new versions, plus an army of all new attractions was also slated to be added to the land as it was transformed into SciFi City.
Some key new attractions would have included the Rocket Bikes, a more action oriented Rocket Rods style attraction that would have traveled around the land on elevated tracks, UFO Encounter, a Tokyo UFO themed version of the Tower of Terror ride system, and Cyber-Mid, where the copy of Rock ‘n Roller Coaster would have been created inside a giant black pyramid that would launch guests into an alien cyberspace world and much more.
It was grand, it was beautiful and would have been one of the most costly Disney projects were built at the time. A great video recap of SciFi City, full of concept art, can be found on YouTube that is really worth watching. Check it out below!
(10/23/20) I don’t know all the details, but I’m hearing early reports that the Tokyo Disney Resort may be making some kind of major changes to their Annual Pass program that can result in some passholders opting to take a refund of the time they have left. The details are a little confusing to an outside, as it involves the end of some kind of Passholder “Lottery” program as well. Anyone out there who can explain this a little more clearly?
The reasoning though is likely due to the fact that the Tokyo Resort has a large number of passholders, and as the parks move forward with attendance restrictions in place due to COVID-19, some changes are going to have to be made.
2021 - Toy Story Hotel - (4/9/21) According to a new article, OLC has released the official name of Tokyo Disney’s newest hotel, and big shock... it will be called “Tokyo Disney Resort Toy Story Hotel”. As previously reported it will be themed to the Toy Story films and characters. Look for this new “Moderate” level resort to appear in front of the Bayside Station on the Resorts Monorail line.
The new hotel will offer 595 guest-rooms in an 11-story structure, built at a cost of $284 million (31.5 Billion Yen). The plan is still to open it sometime in 2021.
(11/30/18) Oriental Land Company has announced plans to build a new Toy Story themed hotel at the Tokyo Disney Resort. The new hotel will feature approximately 600 rooms and is expected to open in 2021.
