The Tokyo Disney Resort definitely seems to be expecting a fair amount of demand for the debut of this new Fantasmic! replacement show, Believe! Sea of Dreams. With the Tokyo Disney Resort Parks Tokyo DisneySea and Tokyo Disneyland both having a maximum cap for visitors daily, and retaining the need for Guests to book their Park tickets in advance, it’s important to note that with many of the November visitor slots might potentially go to Vacation Package holders, and those living in Japan or even normal visiting Guests might find it tougher to gain entry during this busy period.
This is definitely in line with The Walt Disney Company and Oriental Land Company’s increased focus on increasing Guest spending within the Parks themselves, favoring high-spending “quality” visitors over selling high numbers of tickets to the Disney Parks.

More on the Tokyo Disney Resort
Unlike other entirely Walt Disney Company-owned Parks like the Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort, the Tokyo Disney Resort located in Urayasu, Chiba, Japan exists as the Walt Disney Company’s first-ever international Disney Park and is owned and operated by the Oriental Land Company. Located just beside the JR Maihama Station, Tokyo Disney Resort comprises two theme parks – Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea, connected by the Disney Resort Line monorail. The other two Disney Parks in Asia are the Hong Kong Disney Resort and the Shanghai Disney Resort.
Tokyo Disneyland resides just a short distance from the Tokyo Disneyland Hotel and Toy Story Hotel, and features a similar castle to Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom, with their own Cinderella Castle. Tokyo Disneyland offers more than one unique attraction, including the Tokyo-exclusive, trackless Winnie the Pooh ride, Pooh’s Honey Hunt, plus Monsters, Inc. “Ride & Go Seek!”. Familiar favorites from other parks include Space Mountain, Splash Mountain, Haunted Mansion, Star Tours: The Adventures Continue, It’s a small world and Buzz Lightyear’s Astro Blaster.
Tokyo DisneySea is a truly unique Disney Park themed after the Society of Explorers and Adventurers (S.E.A.), it boasts seven themed lands, or “Ports of Call” – the Mediterranean Harbor, American Waterfront, Lost River Delta, Port Discovery, Mermaid Lagoon, Arabian Coast, and Mysterious Island. Equally unique are DisneySea’s exclusive and one-of-a-kind attractions – Soaring: Fantastic Flight, Indiana Jones Adventure: Temple of the Crystal Skull, the S.E.A. storyline-themed old New York-style hotel Tower of Terror: Hotel Hightower, Jules Verne-inspired 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, and star attraction, Journey to the Center of the Earth, located within the Park’s looming icon — giant volcano Mount Prometheus. Most unique of all is the on-property official Disney Hotel (that basically redefines “on-property”) — the luxurious Hotel MiraCosta, built right into the buildings of Tokyo DisneySea’s Mediterranean Harbor itself.
When it arrives next year, Park Guests will enter Fantasy Springs through an enchanted waterfall grotto, that opens into a magic-filled Port where Guests can find themselves visiting Peter Pan’s Neverland, Rapunzel’s Tower and Kingdom of Corona, and Anna and Elsa’s Arendelle: World of Frozen — potentially even check-in at a luxury hotel connected directly to Fantasy Springs itself.
