Due to COVID-19 and other factors, the guest experience has been quite different in recent months at Disney. A big change was the increase in prices at all Disney parks, resorts, hotels and restaurants around the world. From Disneyland in Anaheim, California, to Disneyland in Paris, visitors expect their Disney vacations to cost a little more than they did before COVID.

This is illustrated in a new announcement from Tokyo Disney Resort, although it has nothing to do with the ongoing pandemic. This change is reported by the press and media organization, Nikki. As noted in the article, Tokyo Disney is expected to raise ticket prices after the official opening of its new Tokyo DisneySea expansion in 2023. The statement reads:

Oriental Land, which operates Tokyo Disney Resort (TDR), will expand the fluctuating price range of admission tickets with the large-scale expansion of “DisneySea” in 2023. Currently, it fluctuates between 7,900 and 9,400 yen depending on the season. , but it is a policy to expand the range while maintaining the lowest price, and the price will be increased during the busiest season.

We will diversify visitors who favor weekday vacations, and we will shift our focus from employees and part-time workers to full-time employees who are easy to work on weekdays and meet the level of demand.

It’s the complete opposite of what we’ve seen so far this summer at Tokyo Disney Resort, with discounted tickets. With the new Kids Summer Fans! program, children visiting Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea will receive half-price tickets.

Disney recently updated a fan-favorite experience at Tokyo Disney Resort. According to the Park’s website, this parade will be presented in an alternative version to ensure that the performances respect the various health and safety measures provided for in the Parks.

The Tokyo Disney Resort official website describes this nighttime spectacle as follows:

Night Parade “Tokyo Disneyland Electrical Parade Dreamlights”

Disney stars literally twinkle in this nighttime parade of lights and music.

With Mickey and his pals, including characters from Aladdin, Toy Story and other Disney films, appearing on colorful floats, night in the park is even more filled with fantasy.
