The Oriental Land Company (OLC), owner and operator of the Tokyo Disney Resort, today announced that it will be bringing its night-time entertainment show, ‘Once Upon A Time,’ to the Tokyo Disneyland theme park beginning May 29, 2014.
‘Once Upon A Time’ is a fifteen minute show that uses the same high-resolution projection mapping technique that is currently in use at other Disney theme parks around the world including Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom, Disneyland and Disneyland Paris. Like its Magic Kingdom and Disneyland Paris counterparts, the show will be projected onto the park’s icon, Cinderella Castle.
The show begins with Mrs. Potts of Beauty and the Beast telling a bedtime story to son Chip with projections from Disney animated classics such as Alice in Wonderland and Cinderella. The show will also combine additional effects such as the use as pyrotechnics.
The show comes to the Tokyo Disney Resort at a reported cost of $20.6 Million dollars (tentatively). Note image accompanying announcement is from Disneyland Paris’ projection show, Disney Dreams.
