With the intent of its use to be determined at a later date, the Oriental Land Company (OLC) announced its plans to acquire approximately 5.8 acres of neighboring land from the Dai-ichi Life Insurance Company at an approximate cost of $89 million US. The land is the former site of the Tokyo Bay NK Hall and contains ‘ancillary facilities’ according to the notice. Dai-ichi Life Insurance Company is a major shareholder of OLC and corporate sponsor of the Tokyo Disney Resort.
The Oriental Land Company, owner and operator of the Tokyo Disney Resort, today announced big plans for the popular ‘world famous’ Jungle Cruise attraction located in the Adventureland section of its Tokyo Disneyland theme park.
At an investment cost of 1.6 billion Yen (just over US $16 million), the reimagining of the attraction will ‘offer Guests an adventure that is even more thrilling than before’ and promises ‘a startling encounter with one of the animal spirit guardians in the ruins of a lost jungle temple.’
