A big press release today from Disney relating to Tokyo Disney Resort. It is essentially their entire line up of new events and attractions right through to early 2016.
The only new attraction in that time is the opening of Stitch Encounter - which will be similar to that in Hong Kong and Paris (no indication if they'll run English sessions, but I would think not.) Also opening is the re-worked show in the Mermaid Lagoon Theatre that previously hosted the wonderful Little Mermaid show. The new show will be called King Triton's Concert.
Anyway - you can read the entire press release yourselves below!
Tokyo Disneyland® Park and Tokyo DisneySea® Park announced their annual schedule for fiscal year 2015 (April 1, 2015 – March 31, 2016). The two Parks will continue to offer Guests distinctive, Disney-style experiences over the upcoming year with a variety of new entertainment, special events and programs.
