About Tokyo Disneyland

Be it a child or an adult, almost everyone is familiar with the term “Disneyland.” It is like a dream come true for so many. These internationally renowned theme parks are based on films produced by Walt Disney. The Tokyo Disneyland, which opened in 1983, was the first of its kind to be opened outside the United States. It ranks high on the size as well as fun-o-meter! In addition to the seasonal parades and decorations, this humongous park comprises seven themed lands.

As soon as you enter you are greeted by the World Bazaar themed land. This comprises an array of shops and restaurants resembling an early 20th Century American town. The next themed land is called Tomorrowland! As the name suggests, the land sports the theme of future technologies and outer space. Young ones will absolutely adore the next theme land called Toontown. It resembles a suburban toon town where your favorite Disney characters reside and play. Children can play on Donald Duck’s boat, meet Mickey at his house, or even ride a mini roller coaster.

The next two themed lands of Fantasyland and Critter Country house famous Disney characters including Cinderella and Br'er Bear, respectively. On the other hand, Westernland sports the theme of the US western frontier along the Rivers of America. Who can resist going to Tom Sawyer Island? Last but definitely not the least, is the Adventureland. Here you can let loose and explore the wilderness by going on a jungle cruise or sailing with the Pirates of the Caribbean.

Aren't you just fascinated by the creative Disney characters? Aren't you left in complete awe after watching the imaginative portrayals and entering a completely different world? Well, then this is absolutely the most lovable place for you! For Disney fans one and all, Tokyo Disneyland is sure to fill you with fun up to your gills. Not only do you get to enjoy the fun rides and meet and greet with characters from your favorite animation films but you also get to see the Disney Sea World as well! It is a getaway into the world of fantasy and the rides are all filled with generous doses of cuteness and grandeur. A ride around in a tea-cup in the mad world of Alice or a slow ride through the world of Ariel's world under the sea will keep you wanting to stay there forever. Toy Story's Buzz Lightyear will take you on a journey through space and One Man's Dream II: The Magic Lives On will give you a chance to meet all the classic Disney characters! Get ready for entering the land of fantasy and beauty!

Tips

  • One day is simply inadequate to make the most of it. Do check out their official website for multiple-day passport options.
  • There's plenty for the adults as well, especially if you are a beer lover. Beer is one of the major attractions of Disneyland.

  • Keep in mind that it is also very crowded on weekdays, so plan accordingly. 
  • You can try different flavours of popcorn. 
  • Limited shopping and food options.
  • Wear comfortable footwear as you would have to walk a lot. 
  • Staff who do not speak in English, carry a translation book for your convenience. 
  • Most of the exhibits and rides are in Japanese so it would be helpful to know Japanese.
  • Avoid national holidays or weekends because of the large crowd.
  • Maps are available in English and other Asian languages like Korean and Chinese.
  • Wear comfortable shoes. You may have to walk a lot.
