A fantastic and heartwarming nighttime entertainment, “Once Upon a Time” richly uses projection mapping technology. Projection mapping makes it possible to project images  in a way that fits the contours of buildings and other  structures to produce a three-dimensional effect. This is  the first time for this technology to be used in an  entertainment program at Tokyo Disney Resort®.

Many of the inspiring stories from the Disney films,   including Beauty and the Beast, Cinderella, and Alice  in Wonderland will be vividly projected in 3D on the exterior of Cinderella Castle, the symbol of Tokyo Disneyland. This show will also include popular musical pieces from these films and special effects, such as on-stage pyrotechnics.
