  • What's Going Up in the Ambassador Parking Lot

    When I was at the Tokyo Disney Resort in September I noticed a huge hole in the ground where the parking lot for the Disney Ambassador Hotel used to be. Now, looking at Deep Disney, I see they're erecting some sort of large structure there.

    Anyone know what it is?

    I believe it is the theatre for the permanent Cirque du Soleil production they are premiering in 2008.

      A new theater for Cirque du Soleil is being built there. It will be the first permanent home for the group in Asia. It's due to open in 2008 in time for TDL's 25th Anniversary season.

        The theatre looks kind of weird in my opinion.

          Thanks, Joe. Where are the visitors (who drive) staying at the Ambassador Hotel parking their cars?

            Guests of the hotel can stay at the Ikspiari parking lots located in the interior of the complex. A year ago, a new parking structure opened to the northeast of TDS. Of course, guests have to take a shuttle to the hotel. There is also supplemental parking next to the Sheraton hotel and OLC Main Gate (across the street from the Ambassador).

              I agree. It's badly placed in regards to the Ambassador Hotel. Personally, I wish OLC had not gone the WDW way by adding stuff that is not really related to Disney in any way.

                On the topic of construction, these enormous cranes just scream BAD SHOW. These were possibly the only negative things I saw during my trip and really ruined a picturesque scene during our entrance via the limo bus. And the fact that these HUGE cranes are visible from as far as the castle just doesn't seem right. I understand that the Tokyo Disneyland Hotel will be worth it, but this just totally ruins what could've been a wonderful setting for the park guests. There you are peacefully walking through the hub when BAM, these hideous cranes pop out of nowhere. I thought this kind of thing only happened in Walt Disney World, not in Tokyo.

                  How else do you expect them to build the hotel without the cranes ?

                  So what your saying is that Disney and OLC shouldn't expand there Resort anymore due to them creating a bad show

                    There are means of expanding the resort without allowing guests to see the construction. I guess I can deal with the cranes being visible from outside the park, but I expect everything to be perfect once I'm in the park.

                      Well I don't see how the new Disney hotel could of been built without the cranes being in view.So please enlightened me ?

                      Guess you must of been very un happy about the TOT construction when it was clearly in view of guest who visited TDS.

                          Cranes happen in every park. HKDL currently has one behind Fantasyland... It's a fact of life!

                            I know a little bit about building techniques (former wanna-be
                            architect), but I don't know of any way to quickly build a tower
                            of reasonable height w/o cranes.

                            I guess they could paint them to be less noticeable to visitors, but
                            then it would be an air traffic hazard.

                            Any professional construction engineers out there who can comment?

                              I was going to say smaller cranes but now I can see maybe that wouldn't work. I'm sure they must have some technique as those cranes weren't THAT visible when I visited. And my point wasn't that they should not build/expand the hotel, just that I did not like the fact that the cranes are so close to the park plus so many too.
