Fans are eagerly awaiting any new updates given the reduction in entertainment at Disney parks during the COVID-19 pandemic, and have long awaited the arrival of the new show at Tokyo DisneySea. The nightly slot that originally housed the iconic Fantasmic!, beloved by fans since 2011 when it debuted at Tokyo Disney Resort, will now play Believe! Sea of ​​dreams from November 11, 2022.

Even at Tokyo Disney Resort, fans are obviously wary of the cost-cutting measures being taken at Disney parks, and we can only hope it’s as good as Fantasmic! or even better, and Disney Imagineering and the Oriental Land Company are sparing no expense here, at least – since the loss of the FastPasses, new ticketing announcements and price hikes have understandably upset fans, alongside concerted efforts to bring their parks back to life with engaging attractions. paid “FastPass” vacation packages and experiences.

We are so excited to see what a new Believe Energy! Sea of ​​Dreams will bring Tokyo DisneySea to Tokyo Disney Resort.
