If you need any other reason to travel overseas let it be Tokyo Disney’s enchanting new castle.


On April 15 Tokyo Disney Resort will open its gates to their New Fantasyland Expansion.


The new land will feature new attractions as well as a massive castle. But we'll get there in a minute.


The new Happy Ride with Baymax attraction is inspired by Big Hero 6 and mimics Alien Swirling Saucers in Walt Disney World and Mater's Junkyard Jamboree in Disneyland.


This will be Disney’s first attraction featuring our favorite healthcare companion from the Disney film "Big Hero 6."

The attraction that is most highly anticipated is The Enchanted Tale with Beauty and the Beast.


New Fantasyland will be filled with new restaurants, shops and even Maurice’s cottage.


Disney Imagineers constructed the area to imitate Belle’s village from the 1991 classic Beauty and the Beast.


The land will also feature Gaston’s fountain, a memorable sight to those who frequent the Magic Kingdom in Florida.


However, once the gates open, this little town will not be a quiet village.


The focal point of this new expansion will be the towering castle that stands inside the new land.


Imagine the castle inside New Fantasyland at Walt Disney World only bigger -- much bigger.


Inside the Beast’s castle guests will be able to board The Enchanted Tale with Beauty and the Beast ride.

Visitors will board magical trackless teacups that will dance to the animated film’s soundtrack.


Riders travel through various scenes of the movie to experience the world of the film.


From dishes and cutlery dancing to Lumiere’s singing to a snow-covered garden where Belle and the Beast find themselves growing closer, riders will feel as if they are a part of the adventure.

If that wasn’t enough the castle will also house a huge indoor theater.


The castle is absolutely breathtaking, but don’t just take our word for it though, look at pictures captured by the Hong Kong Street Gazette.

Fans of the new land have been waiting anxiously for years for the park to open and the wait is finally nearing its end.


The land will welcome guests in mid-April.


Now if you’ll excuse us, we’re going to sell our belongings and buy our plane tickets now.
