Water Park – Tokyo DisneySea

Tokyo DisneySea is approximately 712,246m2, is a park with a nautical exploration theme, which offers you a trip around the world. Unlike Tokyo Disneyland, the overall intention is to create a more adult theme park, including faster, scarier rides, as well as shows designed for an older audience. Considered a major attraction and one of the most beautiful parks ever made. The two symbols of the park are:

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

Visiting Tokyo Disney Resorts

Don't expect to spend less than 40 USD 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 both parks. It is possible to go around the entire park in one day, but the lines for the rides can take a long time, so look for a day that is not crowded, as a midweek away from the holidays, this can lighten things up a bit.

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