PHOTOS, VIDEO: Construction of Fantasy Springs accelerates as hotel scaffolding collapses, rockery work continues, first props installed at Tokyo DisneySea


Construction of the nearly $ 2 billion Fantasy Springs project at Tokyo DisneySea is raging as we head into its fiscal year 2023 opening, and there are quite a few new developments at the site, from scaffolding descending on sections of the unnamed Fantasy Springs hotel to new structures erected, and even the first ones settled on the site.

Fantasy Springs Hotel

As construction continues, the large pile of dirt behind the Fantasyland Forest Theater only grows larger.

The structure is fully developed on all sides of the hotel, with touches of painting and decoration already underway on the exterior.

This is more than what can be said about the entrance road, which still looks a bit like a construction site. Landscaping will likely be one of the lowest priorities, so it will likely stay in a more functional than fit condition for some time longer.

Work on what we assume to be the main entrance continues, with structural work apparently completed.

Painted green roofs are visible behind some scaffolding on the hotel‘s west wing.

Much progress has been made in the construction of this multi-level structure and the adjacent staircase since our last visit.

The massive size of the hotel’s west wing will provide the perfect coverage to keep Fantasy Springs isolated from the Bayside area.

Decorative elements are always staged outside the site.

Across the path a much larger part of the hotel is visible, especially on the park side. It looks like this pale pink and beige coloring will be her final color palette.

Towers and numerous walls are visible and in the open on this side, while much of the exterior side remains under scaffolding for the time being.

Further progress has been made on the grand entrance dome, although much work seems to remain.

“Frozen” zone

The shape of the North Mountain has been solidified and preliminary rock work is already visible under the scaffolding.

A number of structures are visible from inside most of Tokyo Disneyland, and in fact, North Mountain appears to peak higher than Beast Castle!

More framing has been put up for some of the smaller structures, while rockery work is underway on the big mountain. The sheer scale of what will likely contain the new “Frozen” attraction is absolutely incredible.

“Peter Pan” and “Tangle” zones

Rock garden work is also already underway in the “Peter Pan” section. The Neverland Mountains are clearly underway and nearing completion.

The witness buildings on this side have been on display for quite a long time, now it looks like construction is focused on the structures that will support the false mountains.

Rapunzel’s tower is progressing rapidly, as is the structure that will house The Snuggly Duckling.

Barely visible are some of the first props to be installed on the site, giant dandelion spores and a cornucopia that will presumably be part of the Pixie Hollow section.

The steel frame of a large tree in the Rapunzel section is visible, and it looks like work on the building for the “Tangled” attraction show is nearing completion.

Now that the new upper deck is open to Cast Member vehicles for behind-the-scenes access, construction has finally started in earnest in the Fantasy Springs entrance area from the Arabian Coast and the Lost River Delta.
