Once you enter into Japan and Tokyo, why don’t you visit and enjoy Tokyo DisneySea!
Tokyo DsneySea is one of the most famous and popular theme park at Tokyo Disney Resort located in Urayasu, Chiba, which is just outsde Tokyo area. Speaking of visitor record, Tokyo DisneySea attracted an estimated 14 million visitors in 2013, making it the fourth-most-visited theme park in the world!!
Tokyo DisneySea is the second theme park to open at the Tokyo Disney Resort and the ninth park of the eleven worldwide Disney theme parks to open.
Inside the park: There are seven uniquely themed areas or “ports of call”. The entrance to the park is Mediterranean Harbor, which opens up to seven more nautically themed ports: Mediterranean Harbor, American Waterfront, Lost River Delta, Port Discovery, Mermaid Lagoon, Arabian Coast, and Mysterious Island.
Let us introduce some of the popular “ports of call”!
1. Mediterranean Harbor is the entrance “port-of-call” and themed as an Italian port city, complete with Venetian Gondolas that you can board and ride.
When you follow to the right, the path leads to Mysterious Island, while if when you follow to the left, the path leads to the American Waterfront. Built into the architecture in this port is the Tokyo DisneySea Hotel MiraCosta.
2. Mysterious Island is a “port-of-call” within Mount Prometheus, the giant volcano that is the park’s centerpiece and most prominent feature. It relies heavily on the storytelling of Jules Verne and, specifically, the mythology of the volcano fortress mentioned several times in the books called “Vulcania”. The Mount Prometheus ride employs technology similar to Epcot’s Test Track.
3. Mermaid Lagoon is home to the characters of The Little Mermaid.
The facade is made to look like the Palace of King Triton and features fanciful seashell-inspired architecture. This “port of call” is unique in that it is mostly indoors and recreates the feeling of being underwater.
4. Arabian Coast which is called like Mermaid Lagoon, is themed after a popular Disney animated film, this time Aladdin. It recreates an exotic Arabian harbor combined with an “enchanted world from 1001 Arabian Nights”. There are three attractions in the land: Sindbad’s Storybook Voyage, an indoor boat ride whose art direction seems to be a variation on “it’s a small world”.
5. The American Waterfront zone is styled after the 20th century harbor towns found around New York, New England and Cape Cod. The area features an elevated train, American styled restaurants and shops, a playhouse and the S.S. Columbia steam liner that houses a restaurant and lounge. It is also home to the Tower of Terror ride.
Tokyo DisneySea is designed to specifically also appeal to a more grown up audience. The park provides good food and a wider selection of table service restaurants than Disneyland and by serving alcoholic beverages as well.
