Every day, many people visit Japan's magical park - Tokyo Disney Resort.
One step inside will let you forget about everyday life. There are only three Disney parks in Asia, and being one of them, Tokyo Disney Resort also attracts many visitors from overseas.
Tokyo Disney Resort consists of two parks: Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea. Each has unique attractions and shows. In this article, we will be introducing the seven areas of Tokyo Disneyland.
1. World Bazaar
World Bazaar is modeled after an old American townscape. Many shops line the area, such as the park's largest candy shop "World Bazaar Confectionery" and the "Grand Emporium", where you can find an array of popular merchandise. We also recommend the "Home Store" where you can purchase items that can only be found in Japan.
There are many restaurants in this area as well. You can enjoy sashimi and other Japanese dishes at Restaurant Hokusai.
After passing through World Bazaar, Tokyo Disneyland's most famous landmark, Cinderella's Castle comes into view.
Cinderella's Castle is located in Fantasyland. Other attractions that children love, such as "Pooh's Hunny Hunt" and "Peter Pan's Flight", can also be found here.
To the right of World Bazaar is Tomorrowland.
Here you can experience the world of "Star Wars" at "Star Wars: The Adventures Continue", the "Toy Story" world at "Buzz Lightyear's Astro Blasters", as well as enjoy a space trip on "Space Mountain". Tomorrowland is an area to enjoy the worlds of outer space and the future.
Toontown is the place that Mickey, Minnie and their friends call home. It's a very cute area that you will surely love. You can take photos with Mickey at "Mickey's House and Meet Mickey".
Your mind will be at peace here just looking around. The many photo spots are another appealing point in Toontown.
5. Critter Country
Critter Country is the land of the small animals living on the banks of Rivers of America. One of the most popular attractions in Tokyo Disneyland, the exciting log boat ride "Splash Mountain" is located in this area. The ride is also famous for the special souvenir photo that is taken at the climax of the ride.
The main theme of Westernland is the American Old West. You can enjoy a thrilling mine train ride at "Big Thunder Mountain" as well as go on an adventure on the "Tom Sawyer Island Rafts". There are numerous attractions to fulfill your adventurous spirit here.
To the left of World Bazaar is Adventureland. There are countless popular attractions here as well.
You can meet a very real-looking Captain Jack Sparrow at "Pirates of the Caribbean", and explore a mysterious jungle with an entertaining captain at "Jungle Cruise: Wildlife Expeditions". It's an area where you can enjoy adventuring and exploring to your heart's content.
There are also various restaurants, like "Blue Bayou Restaurant", which is visible from the "Pirates of the Caribbean" ride. The "Polynesian Terrace Restaurant", where you can enjoy Polynesian food and shows, is also popular.
The restaurants and shops at Tokyo Disneyland are associated with the theme of the area that they are located. If you find an area to your liking, you can enjoy the atmosphere of that world while shopping or having a meal.
Tokyo Disneyland is a world full of dreams. It's packed with attractions and events that you can only enjoy here. We highly recommend you come and visit!
