Tokyo DisneySea to add $2.3bn 'Frozen' attraction in 2022

Expansion to be biggest investment since park opening

TOKYO -- Tokyo Disney Resort is adding an area to its Tokyo DisneySea park with a much-anticipated attraction inspired by the blockbuster "Frozen." But the test will be whether the Japanese resort can offer an experience distinctive enough to lure visitors from other Disney parks that already have rides based on the snow queen.

The resort will open an eighth area, or "port," in Tokyo DisneySea in fiscal 2022 with an investment of some 250 billion yen ($2.26 billion), operator Oriental Land said Thursday.
