Urayusu, Chiba, Japan (October 8, 2013) — Tokyo Disney Resort® today announced that the Castle Projection show “Once Upon a Time,” a new nighttime entertainment at Tokyo Disneyland® Park, will premiere on May 29, 2014. This fantastic and heartwarming nighttime entertainment uses projection mapping technology to produce a three-dimensional effect by projecting images in a way that fits the contours of buildings and other structures. This is the first time for this technology to be used in an entertainment program at Tokyo Disney Resort.

“Once Upon a Time” begins with Mrs. Potts from the Disney classic film Beauty and the Beast telling her son, Chip, a bedtime story. Many of the unforgettable scenes from Disney films, including Alice in Wonderland and Cinderella, are vividly projected in 3D on the exterior of Cinderella Castle to the accompaniment of favorite Disney music and special effects, such as on-stage pyrotechnics. Guests will find that this brand new entertainment is rich and full of wonder, a veritable “storybook come to life.”
