Welcome to Tokyo Disneyland Resort located just outside Tokyo in Urayasu, Chiba Prefecture, Japan.
It was the first Disney park to be built outside the United States, and it opened on 15 April 1983. The park was constructed by WED Enterprises in the same style as Magic Kingdom in Florida and Disneyland in California.
The park has seven themed areas: the World Bazaar; the four traditional Disney lands: Adventureland, Westernland, Fantasyland and Tomorrowland; and two mini-lands: Critter Country and Mickey’s Toontown.
Many of these areas mirror those in the original Disneyland as they are based on American Disney films and fantasies.
Tokyo Disneyland hosts an average 17.9 million visitors, making it the world’s third-most visited theme park behind the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Park at the Disneyland Resort.
Where Dreams Come True
World Bazaar is the main entry corridor and primary shopping area of Tokyo Disneyland. The general look and theme of World Bazaar is that of early 20th-century America, matching the “Main Street, U.S.A.” areas of other Magic Kingdom-style parks.
World Bazaar consists of two intersecting “streets”: Main Street (the primary corridor running from the main entrance toward Cinderella Castle), and Center Street, which forms a perpendicular line with Main Street and leads to Adventureland in one direction and Tomorrowland in the other.
World Bazaar has a permanent canopy covering the Main Street and Center Street areas, designed to protect guests from the elements.
Adventureland is a mish-mash of the various Adventureland interpretations. It features a unique ride – the Western River Railroad – and a Lilo & Stitch-themed version of Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room.
It features a pair of sub-lands: The Typhoon Lagoon inspired Coral Landing near the Swiss Family Treehouse and another one based on New Orleans Square at Disneyland, which features Pirates of the Caribbean.
Westernland is an “old west” themed area, the counterpart of Frontierland in other Magic Kingdom-style parks.
Like its counterparts, the landscape of Westernland is dominated by the Rivers of America, a man-made waterway that is home to the Mark Twain Riverboat, Tom Sawyer Island and numerous live and Audio-Animatronic animals.
When Splash Mountain opened at Tokyo Disneyland, Critter Country was specifically created for it. The only other attraction in this area is Beaver Brothers Explorer Canoes (formerly Davy Crockett’s Explorer Canoes in Westernland).
Because of the land’s small size and the popularity of Splash Mountain, Critter Country is extremely crowded throughout the day.
The Country Bear Jamboree is located in Westernland.
Fantasyland has two original attractions among the usual dark rides: Cinderella’s Fairy Tale Hall, which features the story of Cinderella in a walk-through style attraction, and Pooh’s Hunny Hunt, which uses a trackless ride system.
It is also the only version of Fantasyland to still feature the original version of Dumbo the Flying Elephant with only ten flying elephants, while the other versions of the attraction have sixteen elephants.
In 2015, Oriental Land Company revealed a major expansion/re-imagining was announced that includes the addition of areas based around “Beauty and the Beast” will be the theme for the new area in development due to open soon.
Although Walt Disney originally intended Tomorrowland to be a “living blueprint” of the future, Tokyo Disneyland’s Tomorrowland never directly showcased future technology, instead opting for a science fiction fantasy theme.
Prominent attractions include Space Mountain as well as the Pan Galactic Pizza Port, a restaurant that features a large audio-animatronic pizza-making machine operated by a whimsical alien creature named Tony Solaroni.
New attractions feature movie tie-ins: Buzz Lightyear’s Astro Blasters and Monsters, Inc. Ride & Go Seek.
Like its counterparts in other Disney theme parks, Toontown (called “Mickey’s Toontown” at other Disney parks) is heavily inspired by the movie Who Framed Roger Rabbit. Appropriately, the major attraction here is Roger Rabbit’s Car Toon Spin.
Japanese art and architecture became popular in the late 19th century and it was not long before traditional Japanese flavors became popular too, even here in World Bazaar. Restaurant Hokusai is named for the famous artist, Hokusai Katsushika, whose Japanese ukiyo-e prints influenced artists in faraway Europe, Restaurant Hokusai offers the flavors of Japan.
