While working with the Landmark Entertainment Group and Sanrio Co. of Japan, I developed the concept an incredible Fairie-Forest themed Dinner Theater.  This restaurant was included as an attraction at Sanrio Puroland and is a popular attraction today.

FAIRYLAND RESTAURANT; R. Douglas Nelson: Concept Designer/Show Director. 

            Dinner Theater within a Fairyland Fantasy-World setting.  Live actors join with audio-animatronic and projected characters to present a fairytale musical experience. This multimedia environment is loaded with programmable lighting and lasers, waterfalls and water effects, show-action equipment and many special effects. Guests pass through a Celtic archway, then enter the multi-level restaurant through an underground cavern (pre-show holding area) Facility even includes treetop dining. This project was the inspiration for the Ginza Fairyland store.
