I don’t normally like theme parks as roller coasters scare me but I was beyond excited about going to Disneyland in Tokyo!!  I felt like a little kid in a candy store. I could barely sleep the night before and made sure that we arrived at the gate just as the park opened.

My friend Yvonne and I spent the whole day at Disney land and only left when our feet hurt so much that we couldn’t walk any more!!

There are seven themed areas in the park: the World Bazaar; the four classic Disney lands: Adventure-land, Western-land, Fantasy-land and Tomorrow-land; and two mini-lands: Critter Country and Mickey’s Toontown. We couldn’t visit all seven areas in one day so had to choose carefully.

World Bazaar is the main entry corridor and primary shopping area of Tokyo Disneyland. Despite the use of the word “World” in its name, the general look and theme of World Bazaar is that of early 20th-century America, matching the “Main Street, U.S.A.” areas of other Magic Kingdom-style parks. 

We started our adventure in Adventure-land with the Pirates of the Caribbean cruise, which was definitely worth the 45 minute long wait in the line!! These rides are definitely not only for children as we enjoyed it just as much as they did. I especially loved the detail that went into the puppets and the sets for the Pirates of the Caribbean ride.

We walked around trying on all the funny Disney hats and animal ears you could buy-making sure we got pictures of each other in them.

 Western-land is an “old west” themed area, the counterpart of Frontier-land in other Magic Kingdom-style parks. Here after another 50 minute wait at the Jungle Cruise ride we got to see most of the park and its rides from above.

Toon Town!!

Toon Town was a hit and my favourite place!! It looked just like I remember from the movie. Toontown (called “Mickey’s Toontown” at other Disney parks) is heavily inspired by the movie Who Framed Roger Rabbit. This was actually my very first movie inside a movie theatre so it brought back very good childhood memories.

My friend Yvonne even got me to go on a mini roller-coaster which didn’t end up scaring me to death. This was the first time I actually enjoyed being on a roller-coaster.

I am a huge fan of Lewis Carol’s Alice in Wonderland so we just had to go and explore the Alice’s Tea Party and the Queen of Heart Banquet Hall. His restaurant has a invitingly bizarre entrance. The place is themed beyond belief and totally warped and my photos can only give you an idea of how weird it was. Didn’t get to see Alice but found the Queen of Hearts guards all over the place.

Disney land is definitely fun for people of all ages!!!

  2. Amazing pictures! Disneyland is indeed a place where everyone can have fun and it’s wrong when people think it’s just for kids without any idea what they’re missing 😛 The only bad thing is indeed freaking long lines, they are worth it tho but take a lot of time you could spend in the rest of the park 🙂
