Tokyo DisneySea 東京ディズニーシー
Tokyo DisneySea opened in 2001 and is the most expensive theme park ever built. The site covers 176 acres and received over 12 million visitors in 2009, with many people now visiting from China, Hong Kong, Taiwan and South Korea.
Tokyo DisneySea Attractions
Like Tokyo Disneyland, Tokyo DisneySea consists of seven themed areas or "ports of call" all with the theme of maritime exploration - Mediterranean Harbor, American Waterfront, Arabian Coast, Lost River Delta, Port Discovery, Mermaid Lagoon, and Mysterious Island as well as numerous hotels, shops and restaurants.
Recognizable icons of Tokyo DisneySea are the DisneySea AquaSphere - a water fountain with a large globe and Mount Prometheus, a huge model volcano set in the center of the park.
Things to do at Tokyo DisneySea include riding on the DisneySea elevated electric railway that transports passengers from American Waterfront to Port Discovery, water cruises on the Transit Steamers, and watching the Disney characters dance tap and sing in Big Band Beat. Caravan Carousel, The Whirlpool and Scuttle's Scooters are short, but fun rides for children.
