TPA wishes a very splendid opening weekend for three exciting new destinations welcoming eager guests for the very first time this weekend!

In Orlando, Disney’s Animal Kingdom at Walt Disney World Resort has pulled the curtain back on its stunning Pandora: The World of Avatar expansion. Up the street, Universal Orlando has plunged into the Pacific with the South Seas-themed Volcano Bay Water Park. Finally, Disney California Adventure at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim debuts its rocking new Guardians of the Galaxy - Mission: Breakout! drop tower attraction.

Happy opening to all!

MAR ADENTRO:  Located in San José del Cabo on the outer rim of Baja California Sur, built by the skilled hands of local artisans, Mar Adentro forms part of the Mexican desert where physically and psychologically, water is our most precious natural resource. An architecture of sumptuous austerity boasts features that coexist harmoniously with nature. Designed on a human scale, this resort privileges two elements above all else: the horizon and the ocean.  - photography: ©Joe Fletcher

“Beauty and the Beast Expansion”

As Disney’s live-action reimagining of Beauty and the Beast continues to hold global audiences captive, Tokyo Disneyland’s Beauty and the Beast-centric Fantasyland expansion breaks ground. We’ve previously covered this area, which will feature new eateries, shops, an exciting new trackless E-ticket dark ride, and a new live show venue. This new piece gives us an overview of what it will feel like to walk down the streets of Belle’s Village, with the peaks of the Beast’s Castle looming above us beyond the trees. Based on the art, by the time this project opens in Summer 2020, we can expect this area to be a larger, more lush version of Magic Kingdom’s Beauty and the Beast area.

An interior of the Breezebreak Resort. Its a huge hive like shape with many rooms that shoot off from this central room. Dragons fly between levels with ease and there is an elevator for those who are unable to fly. each floor is supported with limestone pillars, which have been decorated with a string of fairy lights (alternatively Fae lights.)

there is incense burning throughout, though it is not an overpowering smell. You can see on the map that this is an entry, thus the “ground” floor.

I like to imagine a large art piece strung up from the penthouse floor, installation art provided by a resident artist. Otherwise defaults to a set of large oversized windchimes that dangle and chime softly with the breeze. this can be used as an emergency bell system if needed.
