Tokyo Disneyland

Tokyo Disneyland was first opened in 1983, starting out as essentially just a facsimile of the Magic Kingdom in Florida or Disneyland in California. So what's special about Tokyo Disneyland? Over the years, Tokyo Disneyland has grown into the second most popular amusement park in the world (second only to Florida's Magic Kingdom), as well as the centerpiece of a fantastic Disney resort that in many ways has surpassed its American forbears. Spotlessly clean, impeccably run, and now featuring many attractions unique to the Tokyo park, Tokyo Disneyland is a wonderful place to relax, frolic, and enjoy this fun fusion of American and Japanese culture.

For those who don't already have the CA or FL park map memorized, Disneyland is divided into seven themed lands.

World Bazaar

World Bazaar is Tokyo Disneyland's equivalent to Main Street. Ultra-sweet shops line the cleanest street you'll ever see, while tidy sellers and buskers offer you music and cute Disney knickknacks. This street actually has a glass covering over it, to keep in dry and orderly even in rain or snow. Be sure to swing by the waffle shop--the smells coming out of the window are heavenly.

Adventureland

Head left out of the World Bazaar, and you'll find yourself in New Orleans Square, the southern portion of Adventureland. Starting with charming, French-American style cafes and balconied-buildings, the architecture eventually gives way to a more Tiki-themed jungle look. Adventureland is home to several classic Disney attractions, such as The Jungle Cruise, Pirates of the Caribbean, and The Tiki Room.

Westernland

Head north, and you enter the American "Old West," complete with a frontier town, steam boats, and even the occasional Japanese-speaking cowboy. Big Thunder Mountain is the biggest attraction here, although much of the fun of Westernland is just exploring the scenery and smaller attractions, such as the shooting gallery, the American fort, or the wooden walkway along the river.

Critter Country

Tucked behind Westernland is the tiny land of Critter Country. Critter Country has only one real ride, the outstanding (and even better than its American counterparts) Splash Mountain.

Fantasyland

Fantasyland, the most child-oriented and whimsical land, features several true Disney icons, such as It's a Small World, The Haunted Mansion, and Dumbo the Flying Elephant. This is also where you'll find the most popular ride at Tokyo Disneyland, Pooh's Hunny Hunt. Featuring state-of-the-art ride technology, Japanese visitors will queue for hours to ride this, so if you want to try it, run straight there first thing in the morning!
