An experience you'll never forget at Tokyo Disney Resort

Although called "Tokyo" Disney Resort, the parks are actually located in Urayasu, Chiba Prefecture, right around the bay from Tokyo. From the JR Keiyo Line train, which rounds the bay, you can see the majestic spires of the Magic Kingdom and DisneySea's towering volcano.

The many worlds of Disney

Tokyo Disneyland has seven areas, Adventureland, Westernland, Fantasyland, Tomorrowland, Critter Country, Mickey's Toontown, and finally World Bazaar, which is totally original to Tokyo Disneyland.

The park has familiar attractions like Space Mountain, Pirates of the Caribbean, Big Thunder Mountain, and Haunted Mansion, as well as its own unique rides like the Star Wars-themed Star Tours, Monsters Inc., and Pooh's Hunny Hunt.

Evening shows

At night, the Tokyo Disneyland Electric Parade Dreamlights parade lights up the evening with multicolored light design and music as floats, dancers, and familiar Disney characters parade through the park. The parade is held throughout the year and new characters like Elsa and the ice castle from Frozen are regularly added.

A Disney park like you've never seen before

DisneySea is a unique park that's only found in Tokyo. It was opened in 2001 and has an even more magical, creative, and fantastical design than Disneyland. Geared more toward adults and couples but also fun for kids, it offers scenic and picturesque views from rides only found at DisneySea. There are also more options for dining and shows. It's also the only Disney park in the world where alcoholic beverages are sold.

The world of DisneySea

Instead of lands, it has seven themed "ports of call" that are located around Mysterious Island at the park's center. The design and rides are nautically-themed with features like Venetian gondola canal rides.

Reasons to visit throughout the different seasons
