Unlike every Disney theme park anniversary celebration announcement that I can remember, Tokyo Disney also announced an ending date for the 35th anniversary event: March 25, 2019. That puts the event's run at just over 11 months, also unlike many Disney theme park anniversary events in the United States, which tend to go for 15 months or more, to cover two lucrative summer vacation seasons.
Highlights of Tokyo's celebration will include a new daytime parade, a new castle projection show, and the return of the It's a Small World ride. But the celebration is just the introduction to the upcoming expansion at the resort, which will see the opening of Soarin' at Tokyo DisneySea in 2019 and the introduction of a new Beauty and the Beast dark ride and major live performance theater in Tokyo Disneyland's Fantasyland, a Big Hero 6 attraction in Tomorrowland, and a new Minnie Mouse meet and greet in Toontown.
Tokyo Disneyland opened April 15, 1983 and was Disney's first theme park outside the United States and fourth park overall, following the original Disneyland, Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom, and Epcot, which opened the previous year.
