Travel Rumored New Disney Park Would Be Different From All the Others
Why Adults Aren't Allowed to Wear Costumes at Disney World or Disneyland
Why Adults Aren't Allowed to Wear Costumes at Disney World or DisneylandWhile a lot of adult fans of Disney may go to conventions or dress up as their favourite characters like Cinderella, Gaston, or Peter Pan for Halloween, their fandom must be expressed sans fancy attire while they’re in a Disney park.
If the vintage roots of Space Mountain, high-flying joy of Astro Orbitor, and retro futurism of rides like the Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover are among the highlights of your trips to Disney World or Disneyland, Japan may very well be the next place you should visit.
News broke over the weekend onwith details of a brand new park exclusive to that may be on its way. According to Japanese newspaper Mainichi Shimbun, plans are being finalized for a space and flight-inspired theme park called Tokyo DisneySky that could possibly open within the next four years.
The One Phrase Disney Theme Park Characters Aren't Allowed to Say
Belle would never break this cardinal rule. Gaston? Eh, maybe.What keeps visitors packed in like sardines? The promise of a suspended reality—one that treats the various Disney characters as though they had just stepped out of a movie. There’s a laundry list of employee policies to help sustain that illusion, and Travel + Leisure recently uncovered one of the most interesting ones: Actors dressed as Disney characters are never allowed to say “I don’t know” to guests.
Tokyo Disney Resort is currently home to two parks: Tokyo Disneyland, which is derived from the design of Disneyland Park in California, and Tokyo DisneySea, a standalone location with attractions, lands, and entertainment that appear nowhere else. Similar to Tokyo DisneySea’s aquatic inspiration, which features lands within a harbor, port, island, and mermaid lagoon, the supposed Tokyo DisneySky would touch on outer space, aerodynamic flight, and futuristic travel — and be the only one of its kind in the world.
Moving walkways would transport guests from place to place — likely as a riff on Disney’s Omnimover-style boarding or the PeopleMover ride system — and while no specific attractions have yet been announced, a jet plane simulator is said to be part of it. With an emphasis on technology, it would also be the first park without paper ticketing of any kind; guests would use a smartphone app to enter.
You'll never see a Disney employee point with one finger — here's why
It seems strange at first, but it turns out there's an important reason for the tradition. According to INSIDER's Micaela Garber, an Orlando native who spent a summer working at Disney World, cast members must always point with two fingers or their entire hand — a gesture known as "The Disney Point."In some cultures, Garber explained, pointing with one finger is considered rude. As professional keynote speaker Gayle Cotton wrote in the Huffington Post in 2013, pointing with your index finger is an offensive gesture in China, Japan, Indonesia, and Latin America.
Tokyo Disney Resort is rumored to be repurposing a parking lot for the project, and with its footprint being significantly smaller than Tokyo’s two others, theme park enthusiasts are speculating one thing will set this expansion apart from all other Disney parks: they’ll build upwards. Multi-story buildings, ride atop rides, vertical attractions — it could all fit perfectly within the horizon-gazing theme. It’s possible, too, that Tokyo DisneySky could serve as an overseas home to an additional location of athemed land, which is set on a remote planetary outpost, or possibly , which opened at Walt Disney World last Spring. Both fit the theme, and it’s not as though it hasn’t been brought up before; Walt Disney Company Chairman and CEO Bob Iger teased the idea of additional Avatar expansions .
Mainichi Shimbun claims an announcementfollowed by the project breaking ground next year, but Oriental Land Company, which owns Tokyo’s two Disney parks — it is the sole resort Disney does not operate itself — has not confirmed the rumours, which began spreading .
Disney just announced Toy Story land's opening date
Disney Parks announced on Friday when Toy Story Land, the new themed addition at Disney's Hollywood Studios in Orlando, will open. Disney Parks announced on Friday when Toy Story Land, the new themed addition at Disney's Hollywood Studios in Orlando, will open.
The latest revelations can be somewhat substantiated by Tokyo Disney Resort’s decade-longand confirmed multi-year expansion across both parks. Soarin’, the popular ride at Epcot and Disney California Adventure parks, will soon make its way to Tokyo DisneySea, while a "Beauty and The Beast"-themed land and innovative ride, "Big Hero 6" attraction, and new entertainment and meet-and-greet locations will open at Tokyo Disneyland through 2020. A planned "Frozen"-themed port at Tokyo DisneySea was initially confirmed, but has not appeared in press materials following its announcement.
Whether or not you can make it to Tokyo for the possibly forthcoming park, there’s thankfully something slightly similar arriving at Disney World soon. Epcot is undergoing work to create an outer space-themed restaurant within its Mission:SPACE attraction featuring state-of-the-art technology that’ll make it look like you’re actually gazing out across the cosmos. It may not be a true international vacation, but it will definitely be an intergalactic experience.
Traveling to Disney World With a Big Family? This 1 Hack Will Save You Tons of Money .
It's no secret that a trip to Walt Disney World isn't exactly a budget-friendly vacation , especially if you're traveling with extended family. But that definitely doesn't mean you can't make it work (everyone deserves to experience the magic of Disney, after all). If you want the whole family to stay on Disney property together, your vacation savings will drain faster than you can say, "Dole Whip, please." The trick? Rent a house.
