6th February 2022

  • Tokyo DisneySea and Walt Disney Studios Trips:

    You'll see a large number of trips created for both Tokyo DisneySea and Walt Disney Studios as we carried out a large data migration in the backend on 6th February 2022 to untangle the attractions from Tokyo Disneyland and Disneyland Park respectively.

    If you had a trip logged to Tokyo Disneyland or Disneyland Park (Paris) with attractions logged that actually belonged to Tokyo DisneySea or Walt Disney Studios, you'll find this trip has been duplicated and the rides on those attractions moved across to the new trip under the correct park.

    No overall ridecounts should have changed, however you may find you have more trips logged now the parks have been 'untangled'. You might also have empty trips to Tokyo Disneyland or Disneyland Park in your profile - we did not automatically delete these, but you can review and do so if you wish to.

    If you spot any problems with the migration, please let us know via our Help and Support desk.

  • Other Changes:

    We have updated the Explore trips page to now be dynamic so you can look back beyond the latest 50 trips to the beginning of time.


11th January 2022

  • New Attractions section under Explore that shows top attractions, newest and a search feature
  • A bug was spotted in the overall ride counts for park listing pages, with rides included in the totals from removed trips. The issue has been resolved and the correct ride counts now show on the park pages, so some ride counts might have decreased on park pages as a result.

9th January 2022

  • New filtering and sorting options have been added to all trip listings
  • The duplicate profile page ('My profile') has been removed and the menu item removed - you can still see your profile and edit it using the link on your dashboard, or in the site footer when logged in
