Tokyo Disneyland 東京ディズニーランド
Tokyo Disneyland at Tokyo Disney Resort in Chiba Prefecture outside Tokyo is Japan's most popular theme park.
Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea are the two theme parks that make up Tokyo Disney Resort, and both are considered a "rite of passage" for young Japanese people.
Tokyo Disneyland opened in 1983 and was the first Disney theme park to be built outside the USA.
Tokyo Disneyland is the second most visited theme park in the world, after the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, receiving well over one million visitors a month, many of them from China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore and South Korea. Tokyo Disney Sea, which opened in 2001, is the fourth most visited with about one million visitors a month.
Tokyo Disneyland Attractions
The Tokyo Disneyland site covers 115 acres and includes seven themed areas: Adventure Land, Critter Country, Fantasy Land, Tomorrow Land, Toon Town, Western Land, World Bazaar, as well as hotels, shops and restaurants.
Highlights of Tokyo Disneyland are Cinderella Castle, the rides such as Space Mountain and Star tours and the colorful costume parades in the evenings under the lights.
Other standards are the Disney characters, magic shows and the mountain at Western Land. The World Bazaar is totally enclosed in a huge glass house and is a version of the Main Street attraction found at US Disney parks.
Inside Tokyo Disney Resort, guests can travel around on either the Disney Resort Line monorail (Adult: 250 yen Child: 130 yen or buy a day pass) or the 1930s-style Resort Cruiser bus (Free).
