Travel Japan: Tokyo Disneyland

Tokyo disneyland is a amusement park at the Tokyo Disney Resort located in Urayasu, Chiba, Japan, near Tokyo. It stands over a huge 115acres property. Its main gate is directly adjacent to both Maihama Station and Tokyo Disneyland Station. It was the first Disney park to be built outside of the United States and opened on April 15, 1983. It is owned by The Oriental Land Company, which licenses the theme from The Walt Disney Company. Tokyo Disneyland and its companion park, Tokyo DisneySea, are the only Disney parks not owned by The Walt Disney Company.

There are seven themed areas in the park: the World Bazaar; the four classic Disney lands: Adventureland, Westernland, Fantasyland and Tomorrowland; and two mini-lands: Critter Country and Mickey's Toontown. The park is noted for its extensive open spaces, to accommodate the large crowds that visit the park.

World Bazaar
World Bazaar is the main entry point and primary shopping area of Tokyo Disneyland. Souvenirs from Tokyo Disneyland is one of the must buy things in Japan. World Bazaar consists of two "streets": Main Street and Center Street, which forms a perpendicular line with Main Street and leads to Adventureland in one direction and Tomorrowland in the other.

Adventureland consists of two areas, A New Orleans-themed area, and a "jungle"-themed area. The major attractions of this area are Pirates of the Caribbean, Jungle Cruise, and The Enchanted Tiki Room. For the Japanese people who are more used to with the urban life the jungle safari in a boat adds much adventure. We can see red Indians on this safari. The forest guide are very funny.

Big Thunder Mountain Railroad

Westernland is an "old west" themed area, the counterpart of Frontierland in other Magic Kingdom-style parks. 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. Major attractions also include Big Thunder Mountain and the Country Bear Theater.

Critter Country
Critter Country is a small area of the park with two main attractions, Splash Mountain and Beaver Brothers Explorer Canoes.

"it's a small world"

The icon of Tokyo Disneyland, Cinderella Castle is nearly identical to its counterpart at Walt Disney World in Florida. The major attraction in this land are Pooh's Hunny Hunt are Haunted Mansion.

Identical to "Mickey's Toontown" in the Disneyland Resort, this area of the park gives the feeling of being in the Disney Character's neighborhood.
Tomorrowland takes up a more urban look and appears more like a community than a showcase of future technology. The rides include Star Tours and Space Mountain.

The Parade
The parades may be the most popular out of Tokyo Disneyland theme park, mainly the one in the afternoon.

Tokyo disneyland Tickets
The ticket prices vary from one package to another and these can be found at the company's website. Standard one and two day tickets do not allow park hopping to Tokyo DisneySea, must be used on consecutive days and are date specific. Instead users must state upon purchase the dates they wish to visit each park. Three and Four day tickets allow park hopping on the third and fourth days, but again must be used consecutively. Annual passes are available for either a single or both parks, though require a considerable number of visits to achieve a saving over regular day tickets. Disneyworld is mindblowing in all respect.
