Discovering Disney of Japan and the Disney Sea

The dream of many is to know the Disney in California! Some still don't know, but the Japanese don't have to leave their country to visit Disney. That's because in Tokyo there is a Disney. Of course, Disney in Japan is not the same as in California, but there are many better things that are worth following, and in this article we will see them.

Tokyo Disney Resort is the place where the 2 Disney parks in Japan are located. Here you can find sets of hotels and several attractions. It was founded on April 15, 1983 as a replica of the Magic Kingdom from California. Disney of Japan was the first Disney park built outside the USA. It also has its exclusive water park called Tokyo DisneySea. Disney Japan is the 3rd most visited park in the world. Let's get to know a little about each of these 2 Disney parks in Tokyo.

Disney of Japan - Tokyo Disneyland

Disney Japan is located on an artificial island called Shin-Urayasu located in Chiba. The island is about 465,000m² and has a resort with 7 thematic areas and 5 hotels. This park features the same attractions that exist at Disneyland and the Magic Kingdom of California's Walt Disney World.

Water Park - Tokyo DisneySea

The Tokyo DisneySea is approximately 712,246m2, is a park with a nautical exploration theme, which gives you a tour of the world. Unlike the Tokyo Disneyland, the general intention is to create a more adult theme park, including faster and more frightening attractions, as well as shows designed for an older audience. Considered a great attraction and one of the most beautiful parks ever made. The two symbols of the park are:

  • DisneySea AquaSphere - A water source with a giant model of the land located at the entrance to the park;
  • Mount Prometheus - A volcano located in the center of the park at the same height as Cinderella's Castle;

Visiting Tokyo Disney Resorts

Do not expect to spend less than 200 reais to visit one of these parks. Although they are different parks, they are located in the same resort and you can buy a pass for the 2 parks. It is possible to go around the entire park for a day, but the lines of the toys can take a long time, so look for a day that doesn't have a lot of people, like midweek away from the holidays, this can make things a little easier.

There are several ways to get to Tokyo Disney resort, there is even a special line at the place called Resort Line. It is not complicated, always have a internet cell phone and Google Maps. Remember to consider an online reservation, and see the options that fit in your pocket. In the park there is a FASTPASS system where you can book your ticket on a toy and walk around the park without having to wait hours in line.
