The Tokyo Disney Resort located in Urayasu, Chiba, Japan is owned and operated by the Oriental Land Company and exists as Walt Disney Company’s first-ever international Disney Park. Located just beside Maihama Station, ‘Tokyo Disney Resort’ comprises two theme parks – Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea, connected by the Disney Resort Line monorail.
Tokyo Disneyland resides just a short distance from the Tokyo Disneyland Hotel and Toy Story Hotel, and features a similar castle to Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom, and the Cinderella Castle there. Tokyo Disneyland has a bevy of interesting attractions, including the Tokyo-exclusive, trackless Winnie the Pooh ride, Pooh’s Honey Hunt, plus Monsters, Inc. “Ride & Go Seek!”. Familiar favorites from other parks include Space Mountain, Splash Mountain, Haunted Mansion, Star Tours: The Adventures Continue, Pirates of the Caribbean, and Buzz Lightyear’s Astro Blaster.
Tokyo DisneySea is a truly unique Disney Park themed after the Society of Explorers and Adventurers (S.E.A.), it boasts seven themed lands, or “Ports of Call” – the Mediterranean Harbor, American Waterfront, Lost River Delta, Port Discovery, Mermaid Lagoon, Arabian Coast, and Mysterious Island. Equally unique are DisneySea’s exclusive and one-of-a-kind attractions – Soaring: Fantastic Flight, Indiana Jones Adventure: Temple of the Crystal Skull, the S.E.A. storyline-themed old New York-style hotel Tower of Terror: Hotel Hightower, Jules Verne-inspired 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, and star attraction Journey to the Center of the Earth’ located within the Park’s icon, giant volcano Mount Prometheus. Most unique of all is the on-property official Disney Hotel (that basically redefines “on-property”) – the luxurious Hotel MiraCosta, built right into the buildings of Tokyo DisneySea’s Mediterranean Harbor itself.
Peter Pan, Frozen and Tangled-themed Fantasy Springs is a new “Port” of fantasy set to open its doors in 2023 during the Tokyo Disney Resort’s 40th Anniversary.
