By way of commentary, not a ton so as to add right here. For essentially the most half, we’d direct your consideration to Tokyo Disney Resort Reviews Document Revenue & Extra Aggressive Funding Plans, which roughly predicted this. Actually, we appeared on the interval between the tip of the thirty fifth Anniversary and (meant) opening of the large-scale Magnificence and the Beast enlargement and the way that might present a preview, of types, for early 2024. Right here’s what we wrote in that submit:
One other chance is that return of seasonal occasions in Winter and Spring 2024. This could type of make sense regardless, as OLC desires to maintain rising capability and so they’re most likely now capable of workers extra of those celebrations. It will even be savvy from the attitude of drawing locals to the parks at a time when there would possibly in any other case be a fairly vital lull. Again in early 2020, that was roughly what occurred, with the introduction of the ‘Very Very Minnie’ occasion. Bringing that again, or one thing else completely, together with Easter would make an amazing quantity of sense.
In any other case, OLC is perhaps greater than a 5% drop from this January by Could to January by Could 2024. In opposition to the backdrop of slowing pent-up demand extra broadly throughout Japan, decreased client spending, locals suspending visits till Fantasy Springs opens in June 2024, and no Annual Passes, it certain looks like OLC might want to pull some “levers” to maintain this degree of success within the near-term. Within the medium and long-term, they need to don’t have any bother persevering with this record-setting run within the years to return. Seems that investing in theme parks and never simply treating them as money cows to be milked is wise enterprise. Who knew?!
To these factors, it’s good however not stunning to see OLC really add a winter seasonal occasion to the schedule. It’s good that this really has a parade, however I do want there have been a bit extra. It’s value noting that the flagship Tokyo Disneyland parades (Easter, Halloween, Christmas) sometimes had 90-120 performers pre-closure and had been carried out twice day by day. This has 60 performers and is simply carried out as soon as, which makes viewing it way more tough. (In equity, the Very Very Minnie parade had fewer performers–however it additionally had a stage present.)
Once more, it’s nice that Tokyo Disney Resort is restoring seasonal occasions, and so they already embrace extra with admission than Walt Disney World and Disneyland, however my honest hope is that Disney Pal-Palooza doesn’t exchange completely Easter. That was such a particular occasion at Tokyo Disney Resort, and I’m skeptical that an providing based mostly on Pluto or Goofy or whoever can evaluate to it. Comprehensible if that is one out of necessity as a stopgap resulting from staffing shortages, however hopefully by 2025, a full-scale slate of regular seasonal occasions is again at Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea!
