Rapunzel ride in Fantasy Springs Tokyo Disneyland

If you haven’t heard, Tokyo DisneySea has just launched their brand new area — Fantasy Springs — featuring rides and architecture from Tangled, Frozen and Peter Pan. 

As attractive as it is, unfortunately, Fantasy Springs only allows limited access. Even if you have a Tokyo DisneySea ticket, it doesn’t necessarily mean that you can enter the new area. 

As of now, Disney has not explicitly stated whether this exclusiveness is temporary or permanent. 

Hence, if you’re wondering how to get into Fantasy Springs, along with other hacks on the rides and restaurants there, we’ve got you covered. 

Here’s everything you need to know about the new Fantasy Springs at Tokyo DisneySea.

How to enter Fantasy Springs?

There are three ways to get into Fantasy Springs: Standby Pass, Premiere Access and Vacation Package.

Standby Pass is a free pass that all Tokyo DisneySea guests can bid for. 

Simply login to your Disney Resort app, buy or scan your tickets, and bid for your Standby Pass once you enter the park. 

While it is the most affordable option, there’s no guarantee that you’ll be able to bid for the passes, as you’ll be fighting with all the other guests on the same day. Furthermore, you’ll only be granted access into the area once per ride. This means that once you leave Fantasy Springs, you won’t be able to re-enter without another Standby Pass. 

Next, the Premier Access is sort of like a paid Priority Pass. For those who are visiting Disney Parks for the first time in awhile, their parks have all utilised the Disney Resort app, which not only includes the guide map and information, but also a channel to book Premier Access Passes (paid per attraction) or Standby Passes (free every 2 hours).

These Priority Passes allows you to join a Priority Queue, which is a shorter version of the regular queue. For instance, a ride that would take 80 minutes in the regular queue could be shorten to just a mere 15 minutes. 

Premier Access guarantees your visit to Fantasy Springs, but it still has its limits.

For unlimited access to Fantasy Springs and unlimited Priority Passes for its new rides, either stay at the new Tokyo DisneySea Fantasy Springs Hotel, which is located inside Fantasy Springs itself, or purchase a Tokyo Disney Resort Vacation Package.

In addition to the Fantasy Springs Passport, the vacation package includes a hotel room (prices differ according to the hotel), unlimited drinks in the park, a box of free popcorn, and exclusive Vacation Package merchandise.

The new rides at Fantasy Springs 

There are three new sections and four new rides to look forward to. 

In the Frozen Kingdom, Anna and Elsa’s Frozen Journey features an enchanting boat ride, taking you through the storyline of Frozen in animatronics, light effects and more.

Similarly, in Rapunzel’s Forest, Rapunzel’s Lantern Festival plays out the Tangled movie in the same format. In comparison to the Frozen ride, which is a fully indoor ride, the Tangled ride features a mix of indoors and outdoors.

The last two rides in Peter Pan’s Never Land

Peter Pan’s Never Land Adventure is a 4D ride, with the journey somewhat aligned to the story.

Lastly, Fairy Tinker Bell’s Busy Buggies is an outdoors slow ride (with some spinning and bumpy movements) that takes you around the enchanting Pixie Hollow, including Spring Valley, Summer Glade, Autumn Forest and Winter Woods.

Restaurants and eateries

Enjoy casual meals at The Snuggly Duckling and Lookout Cookout, or “fine dine” at the Royal Banquet of Arendelle.

It’s highly recommended to order your meals through the Disney Resorts app’s Mobile Order, especially for restaurants in the Fantasy Springs area which are super popular.

On the app, simply choose your collection time slot, the restaurant you wish to dine in, and order.

When it’s time to collect the meal, you can skip the queues, which can take up to 30 minutes during peak hours.

Purchase your Tokyo DisneySea tickets on Tokyo Disney Resort’s official website.
